Re: Give up on D90, Nikon Altogether?


Reds are ALWAYS washed out. Colors just don't look right even with custom white balance. I've tried to make custom profiles like bumping up the sharpness and saturation 1 tick from STANDARD.

I don't see why nfpotter has to be insulting to you. Honestly, the red shift to orange issue dogged me for years with my D90 and I couldn't find a reliable solution. (And from your photos, your D90 suffers from exactly the same issue. I don't think your reds are "washed out" but rather orange.) I rarely got reds that weren't shifted to orange - a real irritation if you ever want to take a picture that contains the color red.

Manual white balance, auto WB, fluorescent, whatever. Manually shifting the color matrix to reds unfortunately also shifts the entire color spectrum to red, so it's not a solution.

As for focusing, my D90 body almost always front-focussed with my 18-200VRII lens.

There will always be people on these forums who seem to delight in being rude and blaming the user, but the D90 red issue is a real one. (Don't get me started on the buffer.)
