"Color issue with DS3000 and Nikkor 85mm lens"


Hudson, US
          

Hi,
I'm taking photos with a DS3000 and Nikkor 85mm lens combination.
Photos are crisp and clear but the blue is coming out violet in my shots.
Photos are taken outside with no flash.

Especially noted in clothing.

I have no idea what could be causing this issue.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Rgds,
Ken

Hi Ken. Welcome to Nikonian's. Blue can be a problem with some sensors. I had problems with shooting flowers with either the D200 or D300 a few years ago. I see you have a D700. How does that work with blue clothing? Generally when you get a purple cast with dark clothing it can be caused by infra red contamination. If that is the case an inexpensive IR cut filter will eliminate it. This was a problem with the D2H and the Leica M8. Leica even furnished the filters free of charge. Sunlight is very rich in IR.

Have you tried other WB settings? Auto, Daylight and shade should work outdoors. I don't have a D3000 so I can't experiment with you. What 85mm lens do you have?

Here's a comparison shot of a black wind breaker shot with the D2Hs and an AI 85mm f1.8.

The 1st shot is without a filter.



This is the same scene but with a Tiffen Hot Mirror filter (IR cut). The jacket in this photo is the correct color.



The purple cast in the 1st photo is caused by IR. I don't have a blue jacket to photograph but I can see where blue could easily turn purple with this lighting if your camera has a weak IR filter on the sensor.

Hi Len,
Can you recommend a particular Tiffen IR Cut filter.
There seems to be a few of them on their site.
I have a Nikkor 85mm F1.4 lens.

Thank you,
Ken

Ken if you have the AFS 85mm f1.4 lens you'll need a 77mm filter. Filters in this size get expensive.

Here are the IR cut filters that B&H sells in the 77mm size.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?atclk=Circular+Sizes_77mm&ci=16886&N=4026728330+4294955264

I only have the Tiffen Standard Hot Mirror filter but in a 52mm size for my manual focus lenses when I shoot UV photos. It filters the IR from the UV. It is a good filter and has been a standard for removing IR for years. The Tiffen T1 filter seems to do the same thing for a lower price.

I can't say that IR is your problem though. If you buy a filter you should be sure it can be returned if it doesn't work.

By the way synthetic fabrics like polyester will show the purple color shift much more than cotton.

Thanks Len,
I'll check into the camera WB settings and the filter and see where it leads. This has been a good learning process for me.

If you truly have a D3000 (DX3000) hang on to it for dear life the View finder is much brighter than the 3200. Don't Know if the 3300 is any better.

You can get the 77mm Tiffen Hot Mirror filter from KEH for $76.

Len,
Thanks for this info! This is an outstanding price. I'm going to send back the one I already ordered from BH and get this one.

Most appreciated,
Ken
