Sony Alpha 7 review – White balance and colour

Set to its standard colour mode, the Alpha 7 delivered no nasty surprises colour-wise, with lifelike colours that provided a pleasing punch in blue skies and greens in landscapes. There are other colour modes available, which can also be adjusted for saturation, sharpness and contrast.

The auto white balance didn’t provide any nasty surprises, either, with reliable colour rendition on the whole, even under artificial light sources.
