Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V1 Digital Camera ?

Some images 'cool' some 'warm'

\015 Hi\015\012\015\012I have a SONY DSC-V1 and have the same problem as the other posting. He and I are saying that in the viewer and on our computers after taking shots, some or most images are 'warm' or rather orange whereas the very next shot, same lighting, same distance, same subject the image turns out normal or 'cool' without all the orange.\015\012\015\012I managed to mess with the NA and EV Settings (NA 1" & +1.3 EV) to get about half the images ti turn out with normal color but still get half the shots very orange or extra red tones turning white to orange, blues to lavendar etc etc.\015\012\015\012Any suggestions for settings?\015\012\015\012~Typhoon\015

Hi there,

That issue is related to "white balance". Sounds like the camera is not measuring white balance correctly in order to determine the best setting for each shot, and is flipping between correct and incorrect settings, even in the same conditions!

I could go into detail here, but really it is much easier and perhaps better explained with images on many websites. Here is one example:


As for a solution, well obviously the camera is not working as it should, but you could also try setting white balance manually if your camera allows it. The above site tutorial will give you an idea of how to do that and what setting to use.
