View Full Version : Tungsten lighting and k100d

11-12-2006, 08:18 PM
One of the reviews I read on this camera stated that its auto white balance had severe problems dealing with tungsten lighting (indoor). But three reviews did not mention this flaw. Anyone have a K100d and if so, do you have problems with available light indoor shots and color temperature?

I have read the same thing about the auto white balance. I am considering buying this camera and would also like input on this so called problem.

What i have found is in awb with forced no flash an orange cast is present
If tungsten wb selected with no flash all is ok . Now if you forget you selected tungsten and start using a flash you get a blue cast. The color filter menu helps reduce the cast on the k100d but nothing like getting right the first time
Im a real newbie and this is based on my short experience with an istdl and now the k100d

The auto WB does will not correct tungsten. Use the provided tungsten WB.
