With my Nikon D300 I have been photographing dahlias. I have been unable to get accurate colors of some of the flowers particularly in the magenta-violet range. I have adjusted white balance manually as well as tried adjusting it in Auto with fine tuning on the G M axis. I am shooting in Raw. Any suggestions?

  • Have you tried a UV filter? Perhaps the Nikon is reacting to excessive UV. Feb 7, 2012 at 7:31

I have a D300 and have exactly the same problems. I utilize a combination of the Picture Control System and then post editing using Nikon's NX2 RAW editing software to adjust contrast and saturation until I can see the detail which the colour depth is losing.
