Re: greenish hue

Are you shooting in RAW ?

If so then you can adjust the white balance when you process the shots.


Do you have white balance set to Auto ?

Re: greenish hue

If it's a secondhand camera and you are using jpg then it might be worth doing a factory reset to see if there are some settings somewhere changing things that you weren't aware of. The set warm colour option comes to mind as it's usually set to on as standard but I'm not sure it would create a green hue though.

Re: greenish hue

I have always had issues with the green rendering of my EM1 MkII in that it is too intense and grass and foliage appear unnatural. I acquired a Datacolour Spyder Checker and created a profile for Lightroom and apply the profile to all my images on import. Problem solved.

Also if you shooting RAW and using LR check what the profile is set to in the development module as when it reverts to the Adode settings the colours are often awfuland this can be changed in PP.
So if set muted in camera you can select vivid in post.
