Setting correct Temperature / Tinting

Setting correct Temperature / Tinting

Canon EOS 10D 

I have recently been using the K setting instead of Auto or the Presets. 5500 for daylight, saved as RAW.

In Lightzone the Temp comes out as 8796. Tint = 0. Does this mean my camera sensor is out?

Can I correct this by shooting at 3296 k?

Thanks

Share Raw?

Matt,

 

Do you have the CR2 image to share on Dropbox or some other file sharing site that does not convert the image?  A CR2 is a raw image is just that Raw, meaning that LZ can read the raw image, not caring what it was shot at.  I don't have a Mac so I can't determine if the Mac version is a problem with the image or not but someone else can confirm or not.

CRW

Hi Steve, I have an older Canon, an EOS 10D. They produce CRW not CR2

Link is here (fairly sure it is public, let me know if it isn't)

Thanks

JPG Not CRW File

Sorry Matt, but when I tried to download the CRW from dropbox and tried to save it the only save option was JPG.  Apparently you did something to convert the image to JPG instead of taking the actual CRW file from the camera.  Perhaps Dropbox is converting the CRW to JPG.  Try another file sharing site.  Google has file sharing.  Another one is YouSendit.  Take a look at this site --> https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/18968/whats-the-easiest-way-to-deliver-raw-images-online-to-a-client

I was able to download it

and open CRW in LZ, RawTherapee and Canon's DPP 3.x on Windows 7. Via Direct download option in the upper right corner.

The colours are not very different in LightZone. DPP says it is 5500. Therapee shows 5940 as camera setting. I see similar behaviour with a sample from raw.pixls.us, LZ showing very different value, but similar result.
