[langtitle=sv]Färger[/langtitle]

Jag tycker att korten tagna med min K-x ofta ger för mycket magenta. Kan jag reglera detta på färginställningarna på något sätt?

If you are shooting jpg, check which 'custom image' setting you are using. They all have a slightly different look.

Also check your white balance setting on the camera, accessed by pressing the left 4-way controller button on the K-x back panel.

Hue and Saturation

Here, here!

Magenta always seems to by overdone on all my Pentax cameras. Unfortunately, it seems to be one of those tradeoffs for getting pleasing skintones, IMO.

Within the custom settings, I've found a single peg to the right on the Hue settings will help separate the purple from grey-blue and reds, along with toning down the saturation. I *can* get rid of it, but all of the people in my shots begin to look sickly

If anyone has any good method of preserving the skintones and toning down the magenta, please chime in here.

I find that I am most pleased wiht the custom image setting Vibrant . It´s less magenta in that setting.
