Yesterday I saw a demo in a studio of shooting still life. Cameras used were a 10D, 350D and an expensive Nikon. The 10D had a bad red cast, the 350 a slight red cast and the Nikon no red cast. Settings used were same in all cameras eg 100asa 90th at 5.6 and lights adjusted to suit.

The white balance on the 10D was tried at different settings, flash, daylight etc with very little differance.

The 10D is about 1 year old and the owner says the red cast has always been there when used with studio lighing.

Are there any ideas of other settings that could be used to eliminate the red cast instaed of having to use PS

Appreciate any ideas

Yeap - I can see that...

What about 'Custom' White Balance, i.e. the red is in the light source, and not the camera! :idea:

-> Take a picture of a white/grey card and use it as a reference for your WB on the 10D - My bet is this 'red' cast will be gone - Guaranteed
