Default Skin tones ; Leica request

Ad
Hi everyone,

We are in contact with Leica regarding the problematic with skin tones on the Leica M (Typ 240).

Leica asked us to collect some image examples to verify and inspect this issue.

If you have .DNG files showing a wrong color reproduction, especially skin tones, please send me a PM.
I'll provide a upload location in order to forward the data to Leica .

Thanks in advance!

Leon

Well, both should be tweaked, but Leica is right to address the most important one first. Most users are capable of adjusting WB and do so on a routine basis.
