Custom White Balance for Canon 7D Mark II
« on: June 11, 2018, 01:24:53 PM »
I performed a custom white Balance for an afternoon sports Rodeo shoot. Using my 7D Mark II and was setup for JPEG.
When I reviewed my photos afterwards from within Lightroom and or ACdsee. The afternoon light displayed in the photos had a red shift in the color.  Could I be doing something wrong?  If I use AWB  the color was more in balance.  I need to verify but my colors should have been zero for balance.
Anyone else have a similar condition? Could it be because of JPG vrs CR2?  I was shooting sports and needed the speed.  the sunlight was hitting from a right to left.   I can supply followup photo later.

AWB wouldn't be a one time thing in changing light conditions.
Were you not watching your results as the sun went down?

You found a good reason to shoot RAW.

Well Camera was in Custom WB and later thats where I noticed the red shift.
  I wish I could use raw, but in photographing a Rodeo in RAW mode the current 7DII buffer slows down.  FYI Rodeo rides last 8 seconds  and a lot can happen in that time. So I hold the shutter button down and blast away.  I normally come home with 3000 pictures  for a 2.5 hr show.

I was told that maybe my +- comp may of been not 0?    will have to test and see.
  Just wondering if anyone else has noticed any issues.
