Remember that green cast I told you about ? Well, I had a chance to test my A7 today side by side with another unit. Which confirmed my doubts : the WB module on my camera seems totally off tracks, it’s registering the slighest hint of green light it can find, anywhere. If I were a RAW shooter, or did only landcapes, I could probably overlook the issue, but as a strict jpeg portraitist dealing with skintones constantly, no dice. I reached Amazon tonight and they are shipping another unit on Monday, I can then return this one when I have the new camera. World’s best customer service in my experience…
It explains I converted a bunch of pics to B&W tonight. Purple people with green hair don’t look too good to my eye <grin>
Flash also solves the problem elegantly. Too bad Sony decided not to include the genius NEX built-in flash on this model
Got our Christmas tree today !
Wonky colors or not I’m getting hooked on this IQ
Hmm, what does that tree need next ?
Santa Claus ! (check out the blue hair, lol)
I’m in hopes the next unit will be a little more color conservative than this one
Cause I love B&W, only up to a point…
God my girl is tall. Why the hell is she so tall !? She’s only 5 ! Stop growing !
Two days ago she insisted I took the camera to school in the morning
She wanted a shot with her preschool teacher. Aren’t they cute ?
That pink guitar gets a lot of use. My poor ears 😉
My A7 loves everything green
Let’s hope another A7 unit can kill the WB issue, and I can enjoy this sweet machine to its full potential.
