CR3 M50 - too much Magenta Tint

Recommended Posts

Hi, It seems that the Magenta Tint setting for images shot with WB set to Auto: White Priority in camera is excessive during processing as you can see here:

In this image the Tint doesn't seem to disappear until approx 3% (down from 16%) and the colors get better at 0%, but OK at -3%  ...

As I understand it, when processing the raw images Affinity Photo (on Windows, or on Mac when using the Serif Raw Engine) shows you the raw data. The WB you specify while shooting would affect the JPEG preview, or a JPEG image produced by the camera, but does not affect the raw data itself. And, again as I understand it, Photo expects you to handle any necessary white balance or other color corrections manually.

Well the issue here is that AP isn't interpreting the RAW data correctly, and I am sure that they will perfect it. In fact all RAW processors interpret RAW data and mostly different to each other but not with an obvious tint or color cast. Note that the WB set to Auto: White Priority on other cameras such as the EOS 5DsR are interpreted correctly.
