If its a new camera (bought from someone else etc.), maybe its worthwhile resetting the "Camera Settings" to Factory state....i'll try to post a picture over this weekend... i will set everything to AUTO, ie WB, Tone Compensation, Sharpening, and Hue at 0 deg.
I've already reset to factory state... i'll be bringing along my cam out later, hope to show some pics...If its a new camera (bought from someone else etc.), maybe its worthwhile resetting the "Camera Settings" to Factory state....
For my camera (D700 and D3 series) I found the pic on the monitor and on the camera LCD to be around there, no very significant differences, though I shoot in raw in order to modify the temp in ps.I've already reset to factory state... i'll be bringing along my cam out later, hope to show some pics...
just to check, do the pics shown in the camera LCD correctly reflect the WB condition from on ur monitor?
i did try to meddle with the Hue Setting, like not much difference leh...Just recalled something and not being biased towards other make.
I dumped 3rd party aftermarket lenses due to the said tint/hue during FILM days especially when shot on slides eg kodachrome 25 & 64.
These lenses are good during the first couple of years but after that they make excellent paper-weights in the office due to the said tint/hue.
I have a friend whose AF Tamron lens gave him the said tint/hue when shot with D300s but easily corrected with PP.
I still have one Tamron lens that i like and overcome the issue by fitting it with two 1B Skylight filter.
Since yours is giving blue/green at 0 tint/hue setting, have you tried setting it to +value?
Remove all lens filter?
Btw, does your D2H shows "error" on the 1st shutter trip?
It's a small issue and will go away after the first shutter trip.
Mine does and i've received notification from Nikon that they're aware of the problem and i should send mine over for free rectification of the said issue but that was years ago.
I wonder whether they'll carry out the retification for free now.
Just try out what Marios said otherwise its the service center as recommended.
i agree with your 1st statement mentioning about the shutter speed difference. while i was typing the info, i realised it may not be a fair comparison. However, I am not too sure either if exposure does makes a pic look greener/bluer. Maybe i try again later today...Your comparision test can be considered void as you did not use the same shutter speed on the D2H as your D700.
Therefore the photo from your D2H looked about 1.5 stop underexposed.
You should not have used any pic control mode on your D700 to run a comparision test.
I believe some beg to differ.
The ambient light sensor on top of D2 series cameras can also affect the WB of your photos.
Was it taken indoor?
I do agree your D2H pic have a green tint but that could due to the flourescent lighting if i'm not wrong.
Another suggestion is to set the tone and sharpness setting to Normal and use Manual Exposure.
Try getting hold of Kodak's or Wratten's Colour Chart and include it with your subject for all comparision test shots.
As to the "error" after the 1st shutter trip and a blank exposure, i was told that it was caused by poor electronic parts not charging up properly and/or firmwares and not some BS about shutter going to give up. It a minor issue to me and no problem after subsequent shutter releases.
Otherwise, my D2H has no other issue except maybe it need a new set of rubber covers which has expanded slightly.
You can check whether your is covered under their service advisory, see here
Also you can google up "Nikon D2H first shutter error".
