Hi,

when I let ML set the WB automaticly it sometimes raises the WB Shift for Green or Magenta.

But when I turn the WB back to Canon Auto WB, the WB shift value won't reset to 0, so I have to go to ML menu and decrease it to 0 by hand.

I was using ML May 30th and RC2 on my EOS 550D

-Auto adjust WB by using the ML funtion (AV button, Set WB)

-keep doing so until ML raises the shift value for either magenta or green

-turn Canon Auto WB on

-magenta or green value is still being displayed on the screen, go to ML menu to turn it back to 0.


Would be nice if the magenta / green value would jump back to 0 when turning Canon Auto WB on.

Sorry for my english.

Cheers,
sutobe

That will probably make angry those people that actually set WBShift from Canon menu.

mh didn't think about that.

its not mandatory to add a WBShift Function, would be nice though if it was possible somehow.


but since most people (including me) shoot Raw pictures anyways, WBshift can be changed afterwards......

I've never tried but if G&M are already set PushWB will not change them? (will try after this post)
Is not possible for ML to keep track of how much it changed those value and revert them back not to 0 but to what they were instead only if changed?

I'm using ML2.3 for photography with:
