Hi,
I need some help here.
I've been trying to adjust my Canon EOS 5D colour.
When I shoot, especially with flash, my pictures comes out blueish.
Without flash, it's ok, may be just a little blueish, but still ok, cooling effect.
But once with the flash, it's quite blueish.

I thought it was my settings, but it's on AWB.

Could it be the WB which I have to set it?
Or, that's the effect from 5D?

awb is not always the best setting for any camera.. not sure how good 5d's autowhitebalance is, but to be sure, best to use custom white balance, or shoot in raw

then you can adjust the white/grey point when you get home to get the most accurate wb :)

5d, you can first reset the default settings. I got a feeling your temp is wrong. AWB shouldn't have given u a problem, for me I shoot in RAW then adjust later. Safer. Anyways just reset the default first and foremost.
