Default FZ35 vs FZ45 colours

Have any of you who have owned or used the FZ35 and the FZ45 noticed a difference between the colours produced by each camera?
I had a FZ35 but sold it because the colours were not very accurate. I am considering getting another bridge camera and the FZ45 ticks all the boxes for my needs but I don't want to get one if the colours are the same as the FZ35.

FZ35 and 45 both have the same image sensor, so my guess would be that the colors are similar. There is color adjustment in WB.

I dont have or had a FZ35 but from what i see on internet and here on forum, looks like with factory settings, FZ35 have warmer colors.

But for me, both have a great and very acurate color reproduction... that's the main reason that took me to buy a panasonic.

I have owned and used both and have not noticed any difference in colour between the 2 cameras. I have found both cameras to be excellent and to produced true to original (subject matter) colour results.

I know this is a little 'unphotography' but you can ALWAYS tweak the colors to your taste later on. So don't worry about that. I have had an fz40 for around a month and other that one or two EXTREMELY low light pictures, it's kept me happy with the colors
