    Hi,

    Does anyone find the color output from their EPL2 a little too warm(brown)? I read that you can set the Amber setting in the SCP at a minus setting. Has anyone done this and what is a proper setting. I realize the setting may be sujective but just a ballpark setting is what I need, Thanks.

    Yes, you can change the default temperature for your photos or for your camera monitor however you like.

    If you're shooting a lot in incandescent lighting, then you probably will get too much amber out of the E-PL2 as with almost every other camera... except the new generation PENs when you have "Keep Warm Colors" set to OFF.

    I haven't noticed any problem in more balanced lighting, like outdoors for instance.

    As Ned says, I find the standard auto WB to do very well in any kind of natural light, but less well indoors. Often changing to incandescent or fluorescent WB works well, or else I use the capture WB by taking a picture of a white piece of paper. I've never messed with the amber/green settings. It looks like those are configurable per WB setting though, so you could maybe tweak them for incandescent, for instance, to make that look nicer in the environment you typically shoot in, say, your house.
