Default C740 Sharp / Con / Sat Settings ????????????????

I have recently bought the c740 but find the pictures straight out of the camera very dull and flat.
I had downloaded lots of pics prior to buying the camera which were very sharp and punchy.
Can anyone recommend any settings for portrait work my current settings are
Sharpness -3
Contrast -3
Saturation 0
WB auto
I use the camera mainly in A Priority
I can adjust the pics in photoshop but need to make major changes

Well, if you want your pics to look impressive straight from the camera, those probably aren't the best settings. To get sharper pics, turn the sharpness up past 0, and you may consider pumping up the contrast too. If you want more vivid colors you could also increase the saturation. Generally, I've found the auto white balance to be pretty acurate, but your pics will look better if you set it manually in those rare situations that fool your camera.
