Hi everyone,

I recently purchased a Panasonic FZ3 and unfortunately this weekend I took several photos with the halogen setting white balance (light bulb) and they all came out heavily saturated in blue. I can't seem to be able to remove this successfully with the supplied ArcSoft applications.

The photo's were taken at an auction this weekend (my girlfriends parents were successful in bidding for it). I have over 10 photos with this problem.

Could someone assist me with fixing the photos as they are very important to me (I was only able to retake 1 photo with the auto setting for comparison).

I couldn't attach the photos as they were too large, however if someone could contact me at alanhill1977@hotmail.com, I would be happy to provide them to you.

Thanks in advance,

Is Halogen the same as incadecent? I am not sure that it is. Did you try using auto or Setting the white balance?

In the menu setting, check the lighting it is set at. You could play around from setting it to Auto to use Outdoor, Indoor, Flash, etc type lighting.

Each of the setting, will compensation / offset certain light color, thus making the image blue if you have it set to use indoor lighting, but shooting outdoor, etc.

Happened to be a few times.
