Like the title says, this has been a problem when I first got my Nikon D3300, but I haven't realized the true difference until I tried my friend's D3400. I noticed on the 3400 the white balance/colors seemed much more accurate compared to the 3300's, where the blues will be much more exaggerated. The tint is way more noticeable in the shadows/darker areas. I have to add that this is on AUTO.
I really don't know what to do anymore. I tried updating the firmware, and I've checked all the settings. I tried changing the color settings on the Auto white balance, but I could never get it accurate enough. What does work is when I take a picture of a white or gray object as a Preset, but I cant always do that in every situation. I could also edit the blue out in post, but when I try, I'll never seem to get it just right. I'm more of a novice photographer, and I don't have much experience in photo editing. Even if I did know how to properly correct it, it would still be a pain to do that to every photo I take.
I really just want to find a good solution, other than buying a new camera. Any help is appreciated.
