Re: D300 reds

I have a D330s, and it really likes to clip the red channel, resulting in orange reds. The solution for me is:

  • Stay away from Vivid picture mode

  • View the histogram in the 4 color mode and watch for red channel clipping

  • Auto white balance is OK for outdoors or for most fluorescents, but for incandescent use the "incandescent" white balance setting

And by far the most effective, just carry a Kodak white card and do a quick manual white balance before the first shot.

Here's a pic of a red iPad cover taken with off camera flash, white balance set with card, no further adjustments:
