"D7000 standard picture control yellowish"


FPO, US
          

Hello all. Has anyone noticed when taking pictures of leaves or plants, the D7000 renders a yellowish color compared to the D700 using standard picture control? I tried using the "velvia" picture control from the D700 forum but the images still gives it a yellowish color and requires more adjustment to get the desired color. How do you adjust your picture controls. I use Nikon NX2, shoot RAW + jpg , 14 bit and transfer them using the Nikon software. Here is a sample image to give you an idea. I appreciate any advice or recommendations. Thanks.



Regards,

Glenn

Looks fine to me. I don't see any yellow cast.

What is this 'velvia' setting? Is it something new that mine doesn't have?

I'm sorry this was already post processed to give it this look. I'll upload the original file later.

I don't get it. You were able to somehow transfer a setting available to the D700 to a D7000?

Yes. If you follow the instructions that the members have posted you can do it. You can also upload it with Nikon NX2 and adjust the picture controls using raw file. I uploaded both files to my D7000.

What are you using for White Balance?

If you are using Auto WB then that could explain the color cast.

Hi Dave. I was not aware of that. I do use Auto WB with both cameras. Which WB do you suggest for outdoor? Thanks.

Which auto white balance do you have set in the shooting menu, the d7k has 2 different options. Auto 2 tends to render warmer images and would explain the colour cast. I tend to use Auto 1 and fine the d7k nails white balance pretty much every time.

Hi Jason. I only see 1 auto WB in the shooting menu. Today I tried a sunlight WB with vivid picture control. The leaves on this one should be much darker. File was a jpg and resized. No other PP.

If you go into the shooting menu and pressing right on the white balance option you will see Auto at the top of a list that looks like the normal list of WB options (incandescent, tungsten, etc.). If you press right again on Auto, you will be taken to a 2nd sub-menu that has two options:

Auto1 - Normal

Auto2 - Keep warm lighting colors

If you have Auto2 set, it would explain the warmer color cast.

I also find the D7000 quite contrasty and tend to shoot in Neutral now as well as keeping Auto WB set to Auto1.

I have similar issue when shooting bright red turns into orange-ish. If i change the wb, the other color became off. I use the same lens and same setting on d5k and d7k, the difference is quite noticeable. Not very happy about it as I love the color that came out of the d5k and this is supposed to be an upgrade. I'll post a couple of samples later on. Eager to try the color profile too.

Hi Ken, welcome to Nikonians!

The problem you describe "shooting bright red turns into orange-ish" is likely a slightly different but common problem. Digital cameras often clip or "blow out" (overexpose) the red channel easier than the Blue or Green channels. When the red channel is overexposed your reds tend to turn orange or yellowish. Your overall exposure may look fine.

When you see this color shift look at the RGB histogram to see if the red channel is bumped against the right side of the chart. If so then decrease your exposure until all three histograms look good. This could cause the overall exposure to look a bit dark but you can fix that by using Active D-Lighting or just adjusting the shadows in post processing.

It can help to use a neutral Picture Control when shooting well lit bright reds and yellows. The other picture controls can add saturation to the reds causing them to look blown out when they really are not.
