Canon 6D white balance issues with RAW
Jul 23, 2014

Hi all,

I've been shooting weddings with a Canon 6d with a 5dmk2 as a back up body. Now what I've noticed especially after the last wedding no matter what i do in Lightroom my 6D always produces warmer images than my 5dmk2 or even a friend who shot a wedding with me on her 5dmk3.

Now I know I can alter things in LR to suit but I can't get my head around why the 6D continually outputs warmer RAW files than any other Canon camera I've had.

Even selecting the exact same WB in LR as say my 5dmk2 or 5dmk3 the 6d images are so much warmer and more yellow. Its becoming an issue now shooting with 2 bodies as I'm having a nightmare with trying to white balance all the images from different bodies.

I'm just shocked how different they are, is this normal, does my 6D have a known issue/problem? And its not the lenses i use either as I've tried all my lenses on different bodies, makes no difference.

Anybody out there got similar experiences? Its driving me nuts to the point I might have to drop the 6d completely even though its a great camera in its own right.
