ahh yep you are right. It showed me that the colour could be brought out which has been really helpful. Thanks again!

My K5 had strange color issues every now and then, seemingly to do with white balance. It may have been related to the settings mentioned above. K3 seems better, so far. If you are using custom white balance off a sheet of white paper and it is still so far off, I agree that you may be having an issue.

How did you go about it to set manual white balance? Did you actually use a grey card?
