"D7000 - Colour Balance- exaggerated greens"


GB
          

For some reason the greens on my camera seem to be exaggerated (too much luminance/saturation) no matter what settings I use . All the other colures seem natural seem correct. Is there anything I can do on camera (rather post processing) to correct this?

Any chance you can upload an example photo with all the EXIF data intact so that we can see what you are seeing?

Are you seeing this on jpg only or raw also? Was your monitor calibrated recently? If jpg only, what Picture
Control is selected?
If RAW only, what raw rendering program are you using?
What color space are you using. If you are using missmatched color space between camera settings and computer, green is impacted more than others. Try setting both to sRGB and see if that is the cause.

Thankyou for your reply. I always shoot in raw and use Lightroom 5 for any post processing. The problem is evident on screen and when I print images. Both my computer (MAC) and camera are set to sRGB. Oddly enough the problem seems to get worse if I set the camera to standard or neutral rather than vivid. I have not as yet calibrated my monitor to my printer as I don't know how to do this, and will need to research it first.

I use Datacolor's Spyder Pro 3 system for monitor calibration and am pleased with the results and ease of use.

Many thanks for your reply. I intend to invest in a calibrator so this will help. My problem however was evident on screen and on print but I think I have discovered why. I found a very tiny bright green insect, sadly dead, in my cameral which seems to have given out a green colour cast. I have removed it but will get my camera cleaned properly as well.

Maybe complete wrong here but have you checked you don't have a custom white balance set? Or maybe the auto WB is playing up and selecting wrongly - forcing a WB may change the cast of the image?
