  • Color Balance in HS Mode

    Has anyone had a problem with these E-30 where the color looks great in the 1st or 2nd photo in a series in high speed mode, but the subsequent ones lacks the correct color balance.

    Any solution/ suggestion?

    Sean:

    Yes, I've noticed that when the White Balance is set to Auto, it sometimes changes depending on (I assume) anything from a change in the angle of the sun, a cloud passing by, dust , focus point, etc.

    I notice this less with the E-30 than I did with my E-510.

      Sean,

      You will have to explain your perception of the problem better to get useful advice.

      Are you suggesting that your WB changes during a sequential series when it shouldn't or that it doesn't change when it should?

        It's possible you have auto bracket set to white balance?

          that would certainly screw things up if unintended!

            Bracketing is not turned on in anyway.

            If I shoot 3 or 4 High Speed exposures. 1st shot colors look great across the color spectrum. 2nd one not bad, but colors muted. 3rd - 4th shot is all blues/ greens. Colors on the warm end of the spectrum are muted substantially.

            Single shots look great and this does not happen all the time. Most of the time I am shooting 800 or 1000 ISO under lights in a stadium.

              but has the camera changed the WB or not changed it when the lighting has changed - shooting under mixed artificial lights always has the potential to cause problems but what you are describing sounds far to regular and specific.

              other related aspect will be whether you have set the WB to the external sensor or not - might just be worth swapping that over and trying the alternative. If you are shooting from an area illuminated with one lighting, into an area with another, this can have an impact.

              I've certainly not noticed anything specific like this and shoot HS at those ISO's under floodlight/ambient mixed lighting for rugby (but don't have any other light sources around me - I'm just out in the open!

                Light conditions are constant as we are under lights in a football stadium.

                WB is set to #2 which looks great on test shots.

                Out 4 or 5 shots in a sequence in burst mode only 1 or 2 are usable with colors being correct. Having same problem this year again.

                As I said before 1st or 2nd are not bad, but later shots have horrible colors. It is almost like the sensor is overwhelmed at the high ISO setting and trying to take a bunch of pictures at once.
