SX30 - Auto White Balance?
Dec 25, 2010

Hi Everyone,

I just recently picked up an SX30. I have taken some indoor shots with the SX30 and my trusty A80 to compare image quality. I figured there would be no comparison since the A80 is only 4 MP (it does have a larger sensor, though - 1/1.8" vs. 1/2.3").

With both cameras set to auto mode, I was disappointed with the results. The SX30 photos were grainy and the white balance seemed way off. The A80 on the other hand pretty much nailed the white balance setting and produced a much cleaner photo.

Has anyone else had poor results with the camera's auto white balance? Many reviews mention poor indoor performance on the SX30, but I am still surprised by the results.

Thanks in advance for you help.

-Stan
