I recently purchased a Canon A610. I love the camera except for one problem. Areas of a photo that look white on the camera LCD look beige or dirty white when I download to ACDSee on my PC (I have an HP LCD monitor). I see the same problem when I print on my Canon I860 printer
(either from ACDSee or using direct print from the camera). Some of the photos also have a yellowish cast especially in people's faces. Even if I increase the brightness in ACDSee, the whites still don't look the same as on the camera LCD. I tried taking my memory card to Eckerds to get the photos developed and got the same problem. It happens mainly in indoor photos. I tried using Auto, Program mode, Indoor mode, flash and no flash. I also tried using the tungsten setting since that is my light source. None of these worked.

Have you tried "Manual" WB yet? You get a nice white bit of paper (not reflective) printing paper is good, hold it so it's facing your light source and then activate your "Manual" WB on your cam.Make sure that you see only white on your screen (no shadows or ripples) as you do this.

The "Manual"WB is the one on the far right of your screen when you press your FUNC button and go into the AWB settings.Press theSET button to activate it once your paper is in the right position.

You may have to do it a couple of times to get it right. If you are going to use the flash then you will have to do a "Flash"WB same as above.

This setting will stay there untill you change it - but it will be only good for the original light source you took the reading off.

Good luck

Cheers Dom
