Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II review – White balance and colour

Leaving the G1 X Mark II set to AWB produced an accurate white balance performance, with reliable results recorded both indoors and out. Colours are punchy and are a true reflection of the scene as I remember them. Reds, greens and blues are superbly represented in bright sunlight, and in overcast conditions where there’s typically a distinct lack of colour tones images remained neutral and lifelike. Back on the computer, images rarely needed any work with the temperature and saturation sliders, and while there is the option to shoot in black & white and enhance colour in-camera from the creative modes, there are no options to add more contrast or choose from a number of mono-contrast treatments such as infrared.
