Not sure if something is wrong with my camera or my lens, but almost every photo and video I shoot with my 7D has a slight red/purple hue to it that I have to take out in post. This hue shows up regardless of color temp.

Has anyone else experienced this?

take some pics outside in daylight with different white balance settings and post here, we cant help if we dont see how it looks but like youve seen from most 7d vids other users dont have this problem.

hmmm... looks like the mystery is solved. I remember back many years ago using Canon GL-1s and GL-2s and they always had some weird color renderings and was wandering if the magenta hue was just something that's always present unless you adjust your picture settings accordingly

here is a cropped still from a video test I was doing in studio, color temp was set properly, but the skin tones has the magenta/purplish tint (at least it does to my eyes)
