V1 - Fine tuning WB to remove color casts
May 28, 2012

After a day of extensive shooting over a hundred outdoor sunny pics using default Auto WB, I've noticed a blue-ish cast when using Auto WB. When using flash WB setting, there is a yellow-ish/greenish cast as well. Experimentation has resulted in these best settings for me:

Auto WB: set to A3 (reduces blue cast)

Flash WB: set to B4,M1 (reduces yellow and green cast)

Also, I am finding the V1 tends to over-expose, at least when it is sunny and bright outside. Setting EV to -0.3 seems to do the trick.

Can anyone confirm if these settings improve their shots as well? Auto WB gets me close enough in all conditions except for flash use when I use flash WB setting.

Thanks.
