Default Re: Skin tones from S3

FYI regarding the S3, versus the S2. I was accustomed to using Auto WB with the S2 and getting excellent results. If the skin was off, it was off my a tiny bit. It seemed also to compensate very well for fill flash and full flash, studio strobe, mixed light, etc. Both the S1 AND S2 have excellent Auto WB.

I got my S3 and was struggling for days to get my skin tones proper. I came within a day of returning the camera when I told myself that it MUST be something I'm missing, as everyone was telling me that the skin tones were excellent on this camera. I finally discovered that it was the Auto White Balance.

It's terrible. You must use the presets or Custom to get proper skin tones.
