Trying out a new XM2

Today I am exchanging my 2 week old XM2 for a "brand new" one which was sent to the dealers from Canon.

I have a feeling that the only way to get a grip on the color problem is to do a manual white balance for everything, anyone else found this to be the case?

I will post again when I have had a chance to try out the new XM2.

Cheers,

Gordon.

Gordon,

Actually I have found the presets to work in a lot of cases but I do try Manual & presets to find what I prefer. I know you do not always have such luxury (time) so it is really down to individual scenario's.

Once you WB (1) check your colours, then do the same for the others. I find that with good lighting (natural or additional lights) the WB is a lot easier to check and set. If you don't have time try the presets (indoor & sunlight) to get the best result but whatever you do do NOT just leave it.

By altering the WB you are effectively correcting all colours to suit the particular lighting "temperature".

I hope go get your Cam sorted, good luck and let us know.
