Re: Elph 360 Color not right?

Thanks ScottyP - I found a custom white balance setting. It helped a bit but the coloring still seems off. It was originally on factory settings as it was just opened.

Thanks kvbarkley for replying. I'll look into your suggestions. I haven't adjusted any saturation settings previously.

Re: Elph 360 Color not right?

I have SX710HS and the problem is color saturation in all modes in LCD and print outs except in auto setting. This is one of the problem that cannon camera I do not like. I reset the camera setting  to factory default values and never use other modes except auto, the print pictures from CVS or Target are better ( with or without flash ).

Printing is an entirely separate issue from image capture.  Even how an image is displayed is a totally separate issue from image capture.  Professionals use calibrated color monitors, as well as, calibrated photo printers.

 

Judging from your brief descriptions, if the pictures look "better" as prints from CVS or Target, then your camera is most likely capturing images just fine.  Perhaps you have a problem with the camera's LCD, which isn't a good tool to use to judge images critically.

 

Furthermore, [AUTO] is not the best mode to use, if you want high quality images.  The camera tries, as best it can, but it usually needs a fine tuning of the exposure settings to get the best images.  You cannot fine tune the exposure in [AUTO] mode.

Re: Elph 360 Color not right?

A good camera is good in LCD and print quality.  No excuses for that. Digital signals carries the qualities of a capture.

It is because the auto mode gives the quality I like than any other mode, no matter what you say about comparison, auto mode is better than any " fine tuning "  which resulting a bad capture of image.

My comment on comparison is that not absolute, only the print quality says about the camera. The LCD view is only in the eye of the beholder.

Okay.  Actually I have no idea what your complaint might be.  First, you say the LCD and print quality is good.  You finish by saying that the print quality is not good.

 

A word to the wise, though.  Just because you may get your best results in [AUTO] mode, that does not mean it is the best shooting mode to use.  Professionals have cameras with automatic shooting modes, but they prefer to use fully manual modes.  Like I said, manual shooting modes give you total control over the exposure.

 

I suggest that you do a web search on two topics:  " Exposure Triangle " and " Depth Of Field ".  May all your shots be keepers.

Re: Elph 360 Color not right?

Powershot is a kind of point and shoot camera that is why auto mode works well because it is designed for that use. Other manual mode with fine tuning do not work well because it is not designed for that kind of manipulation. I would like to point out that every camera has its own design and purpose, the general rules applied to prof. camera are not applied to non prof. camera, bec. nobody will buy  prof. camera  if non prof. camera works the same as prof. camera. Non prof. camera has disavantages.
