    Question Calibrate White Balance

    Hello, I think my E-500 has some white balance issues. I've shot numerous pictures under various lighting conditions and modes. No matter how I designate my white balance everything always comes out with a blue tint. Using, auto, manual, etc. The white looks fine on the camera screen but once transfered to any computer the pictures always look blue. Is there a way to permanetly adjust / re-calibrate the white balance?

    I can see, nobody answers. I don't know Olympus cams, but there is a way to "cheat". If your image is too cool after custom WB setting, try to use a piece of paper (or anything) not exactly white(gray), but with blue cast. This should give warmer cast to the picture.
    This can be even used as a color filter. You can use different colors. It can be fun (if you like such experiments).

    Is this only on one computer that you experienced this issue? My first question is have you calibrated your monitor?

    Try using a proper white/gray card and the one-touch WB setting. Something sounds fishy to me.

    White Balance

    I have used several computers at least 8 different computers, flat screens and CRT. All produce simialr results pictures look blue and dark. I do use a white piece of paper when I do the one touch WB, haven't tried gray. I'll give that a whirl and see what happens.
