Strange result using Gel Filters on the with the X30

Recommended Posts

Hey

I've been experimenting recently using 1/4 CTS gel over the ef-x20 flash on my Fuji X30 and been getting some mixed results.

On some images the effect of the gel is clear/has the desired effect while on others it's like the gel has been completely bypassed (despite it tightly covering the flash) and the output image suggests a normal flash with no gel on at all.

As unlikely as it seems, is there any reason this would be happening due to camera settings etc? If not any other suggestions as to why it might be occuring?

Welcome to the community @wew82!

artuk is on to something, it's likely your auto white balance is trying to correct the effects of the gel. Try setting your X30's white balance manually to daylight and see what happens.
