    Hi all,

    Images taken from my Olympus E-PL3 have all gone green. I do not know the term of this abnormality, so I can't quite find relevant results when searching the net about it. I have tried pixel mapping and resetting the camera multiple times, but still no good. Might anyone be familiar with this, and know how to fix it, if can be done manually?

    Check your white balance setting.

    Still no good. Discoloration is consistent in any WB setting.

    Have you tried a different lens or removed the lens and reattached it? I had some strange effects once when my lens wasn't attached properly.

    I only have one lens, and did removing and reattaching it to no avail. Sometimes, the discoloration would only occupy 4/5ths of the image, while the last fifth has normal color. Like this one, below.

    Yep, already did. :(

    This actually happened when I was trying to do some 5-sec exposure shots with some fire dancers. There is a green laser light show in the foreground. I am not sure if that could have been the cause of this.

    I hope I'm wrong, but that has happened to one of my old cameras due to a laser

    That is very strange. If you had a manual adapter I'd suggest holong the camera face down and power cycling then taking a 5 second exposure just to see if any thing falls out!

    If I had to guess I'd say antialising filter of NIR filter is loose and flopping around - but that is not really possible!

    Warranty still in effect? I think that baby needs to go back to the factory for some TLC.

    Yep, warrranty's still okay. Just asking for insights before sending the kid back later today. Thanks to all. :)
