Sony Alpha 7R review – White balance and colour
Image: The in-camera black & white mode produces images with a nice contrast
There is not a lot to report regarding the white balance of the Alpha 7R. Auto white balance works well, producing a reasonably neutral white balance. At times, skies do look a little cyan on the rear screen, but the images are still on the right side of blue.
As for the colours themselves, they are almost identical to what we have seen on other recent Sony cameras. The vivid mode isn’t too garish, and the black & white mode has a good level of contrast. One mode that I particularly appreciated at this time of year was the autumn mode. It makes reds, oranges, browns and yellows look really rich.
