Default help with new panasonic fz 35

I bought the camera yesterday and I have 2 problems:

1. there is a yellow hue - my dark red carpet is almost orange in the pictures. I tried with different white balances but no picture captured the right colour. What's the problem? can I fix it somehow? is there a RGB function?

2. the camera seems to take a lot of time to focus. Is it so or it's just my impression? I already gave my previous Canon so I can't compare now.

As I read a lot of good reviews about this camera I really hope both problems can be fixed. Also, I'll appreciate any tips about the camera.

Thank you

traveller-

It gives the appearance of a WB (White Balance) problem. Try an outdoor photo with the Mode Selector in P for Programed Auto and the WB set to Auto White Balance and Auto ISO. Then check it for color rendition.

It the colors are still off, you will have to return it to your dealer for replacement, as the camera appears defective.

Have a great day. I am very sorry you are having to go through this.

Hello Sarah

Thank you, I'll try it outdoors, as you said.

Also, the camera does focus pretty fast. You may have a defective camera

also, what are the conditions in which you are having trouble with white balance and focus?

is it in extreme low light conditions?
