Needs help on a T1i
Aug 6, 2012

My daughter had a T1i (500D) for 18 months and has always been complaining about the color (or lack of it) of her pictures with it. She just visited us with her camera, I tried it and indeed portraits look rather washed out with it. She shoots only with the kit lens (18-55mm) and JPEGs only (do not ask why she uses a DSLR...) I tried RAW and the pictures look about the same. I used it with some of my lenses (50mm 1.4 and 70-200mm 2.8 IS II) with same results.
I am having problems to upload pictures so I cannot show examples at this time.

I do not know if it is something fixable with different settings or similar. Is this a common problem with this camera?

Thanks for your help,

Canon EOS 500D (EOS Rebel T1i / EOS Kiss X3)
