Wondering if anyone shooting with mirrorless cameras for ambient-only, wide angle (at or within a couple meters of the surface) is noticing a magenta color-shift in their files that cannot be corrected in camera (with custom white balance) or in post completely?  It seems there are a few shooters running into this issue.

By mirrorless do you mean a particular brand of mirrorless camera,? something like this has to do with the combination of sensor and the processing engine of the camera and after that the program used for RAW development, not whether the camera uses a mirror or not.  If it's truly  a cast and not for example magenta in the shadows, I doubt it is not correctable in post,  Magenta is corrected with the tint control rather than colour temperature.  There are limitations of course, if you start a long way out you can rrun into problems, but if it is a light cast then I'm sure it is correctable if you use the right tools.


Do you have some examples you could post?
