If you want to achieve this digitally note how the whites aren't full white and the blacks aren't full black. You can do that e.g. in Lightroom or any other editing tool by pulling the endpoints for the highlights and shadows towards the middle. To get a creamy tint, select the RGB Blue-Channel and reduce the Highlights-max Point. This bumps up the yellow:...

If those were film images, I'd say they were "overexposed" by about one stop and developed at N-1 (pull 1) to ensure well filled shadows. They may also have been printed on a warm-tone paper, and the prints preflashed to rein in the whites. Presuming they're digital in origin, it's likely filters with similar results were applied in post Generally, this ...

If you're holding all exposure parameters constant, then the next suspect for me would be your white-balance setting, which I don't see mentioned above; e.g., do you have auto-white-balance (AWB) enabled, or set to a fixed temp? Remember that most cameras are designed to interpret any scene you throw at them as 18% gray and compensate for that. If that's ...

Yes, there is a way. The distance indicator is also shown when you are in the focus magnifier mode, which zooms the picture to help you achieve focus. The camera exits the mode per default after 2 seconds. And touching the focus ring will show it again. You can however, set the time you stay in this mode to forever. Option page 1, 13/14, Focus Magnif. ...

You mentioned there's an exif data incoherence with the parameters you shot. Although this could be an error of internal parts of the lens (dirt or moisture in the metal tracks of the barrel, whatever...) It won't affect exposure and colours or white balance. I've tried right now inhibiting the connectors and shooting manual. What I don't know very well is ...

How repeatable is it? A few ideas: I've managed to significantly change light levels by standing between the light source and the subject :-) Are these always-on studio strobes or are they Speedlites that might have dropped into sleep mode? Are they Speedlites that might have dropped into sleep mode then awakened reset to default settings? Are your ...
