Sony A5000 vs Nikon D5000 - huge color difference


Recommended Posts

So I own a Sony A5000 and my wife has a Nikon D5000.

I can't seem to come close to the color balance the Nikon can do. Both have a 18-55mm 3.5-5.6/f lens. The Sony a5000 is just really glue.

I've tried manual ISO on the Sony and it still comes out extremely blue. Is it just not in the same league for aquarium photography, or is there more tweaking I need to do?

Does the sony have a custom white balance setting? See if it does, if it does tinker with those settings to hone it in.


Nikon has pretty good white balance settings especially with the models that can customize it. I shoot in RAW at 10000K WB with my nikon d610 and tweak it in a photo editor (lightroom 5)

You should be able to adjust the WB manually in the menu system as well. I found 5400-6100 works really well on the Sony cameras.
