I've had my Z750 several days now and am concerned with color accuracy. Color reproduction is generally acceptable, however, my purple irises turn out blue and caucasian skin tones have an unnatural reddish quality. Saturation at -2 corrects the redness, but makes a person look washed out. Other setting changes don't seem to help.

The only online Z750 samples I've found of people are listed below. The woman pictured in the first link only somewhat demonstrates the "rosiness" I get in my pictures. The woman pictured in the second looks fine, however, "rosiness" has only been an issue in my pictures of caucasian subjects.

I love everything else about this camera, but would appreciate some advice: Are others also experiencing skin color innaccuracy with the Z750? Is the Fuji F10 recommended to capture color over the Z750? The F10 is my preferred alternative, if skin color reproduction is more natural.

I recently bought a Casion Z750 and was wondering if any other casio owners were having the same issue I'm having. When I photograph something purple in natural light it comes out 'blue'??? What is causing this and can it be fixed or should I be returning the camera.

The first setting in the scene modes is portrait. It warms the skin tones and is pretty easy to get to. There is a definite warming of the WB when I switch between portrait and snapshot mode. The third scene mode is portrait plus scenery. I'm guessing that has a little less warming. You might try both.

For the flowers have you tried messing with the WB with the EX switch. It is the easiest camera I've seen for setting a manual white balance using a white piece of paper.

I don't know where there are any purple flowers around, but if I find some I will try some of the white balance settings. I have read that the shade setting can be effective.

If you don't use the viewfinder or any of the manual modes the F10 might be a better camera. It has a very good sensor. I would hate to give up the future movie mode though – have you tried that?

There is a shot in this review that has some small purple flowers behind some larger flowers – they didn't turn blue. http://www.digitalcamerareview.com/d...sp?newsID=2514

Here is a thread from DPReview about the purple/blue issues:

Here is a very nice test:

The discussion in this thread seems to indicate this is a problem with other digital cameras, not just the Casio Z750.
