Having problems with your Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera ?

What is the best colour setting to have on the 5d?

\015 I recently took some sports day photos in changeable weather (bright sun then cloud) but the greens were far too green and the whole picture looked washed out. I only use L lenses 70-200 F2.8 and the 24-105 F4 the latter lens made everything look like a fisheye effect (another issue!)\015\012\015\012On the menu settings which is the best option to have it set up to, to make it look natural?\015\012\015\012Also, how do you change the sharpness in camera? \015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012MS\015

Hi
This all depends on what format you are shooting. For RAW this does not matter as you will be able to change the white balance setting on the computer under your programs white balance settings as the main thing.
For shooting in .jpg probably a good general setting should be cloudy for outdoors. Gives a warmer picture. and for other people the AWB (Auto White Balance) may work fine. Again it depends really on your taste.

If the images are washed out it could be you are shooting in RAW, as this format does not alter any info and is stored on the card as it was taken. .jpg does process the image adding saturation, sharpness etc.

A quick fix for some has been to use the settings under 'Picture Style' and changing thes to suit the subject. Faithful will record things as is and not apply and adjustments and will look a little washed out.

NOTE:
Shooting in RAW gives you complete control over your image but does mean you need to process the shots later on you computer to get them as you saw them.

Note 2:
You are getting the fish Eye effect as on the 24-105 as you are using this on the 24mm end of the Zoom. (Wider end). Try moving it up through to 105.

Hope this helps

Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble. I'm not sure what the best setting are? I've tried using the flash, but the whole picture just glares out, the light bounces off of the card and makes a big glare in the center. Without the flash, the picture is too dark. Can you help me figure out the best setting to use? Or, what kind of lighting

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take. If i look through the lens and take the image, i am still able to view the picture I had taken if i set the camera on the view pictures. The mixture of colours on the LCD only shows when the camera is set on take the picture... and it doesn't even do it always. Thanks.

I want to take black and white photos on my Casio Exilim EX-Z30 Digital Camera. Is there a setting that allows me to do this? I have checked the instructions but it doesn't seem to mention how I can change the colour settings, just the White Balance. Am I only able to take colour pictures?

W1 Sharpening I am new to the Sony W1 and I have read somewhere that the camera should be set to the P mode and the sharpening to the ( - ) minus and it would yeild the best results.

What are the optimal settings for my digital camera? I have a brand new Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH camera, but I've been really disappointed in the quality of pictures it takes. For example, sometimes there are these smallish blurred white circles on the pictures. Can you recommend optimal settings that I should be using? I use my camera indoors and occasionally outdoors, so whatever settings best cover all different conditions would be ideal.


Small white circles usually means dust on the lens.  Remove the dust with a blowerbrush - not a tissue.\012You are asking for a "1 size fits all" solution for your settings, and indoor and outdoor use really means different settings.   ...
