Hi

I can't decide between the z750 and the canon sd500

from the pictures with same settings I've seen on the web, I prefer the Canon ones by far.

the casio pictures are much too sharp and saturated to my taste. I can't find good pictures with the menucorrections to compare the 2 units fairly, it would help me a LOT if you'd post some you've done !



thanks !

I couldn't agree more. I asked for some photos with a range of these settings over at dpreview:

Here's the results. I found the outcome reassuring.

thanks this is exactly what I needed

after a lot of thinking I decided for the canon, I think the correction is good but I find the images very "digital" looking, I mean too much details, too much sturation, flat images etc...

I find the canon images much more natural looking (but far not perfect still...)

The big difference I see is in Canon's sharpening algorithms.

Casio tries to sharpen detail, no matter how small it is, which sometimes results in the Impressionist "little color blobs" effect, especially when looking at things like lawns and distant foliage.

Canon gives up on sharpening if the detail is small enough, blurring it instead. You can see this as detail suddenly giving way to a smudge. However, it's only obvious when a homogenous texture is smoothly disappearing into the distance, such as on a large lawn. What usually ends up happening is the objects in the distance get slightly blurred. This approximates depth of field, which probably accounts for the more "3-D" feel on Canon pictures.
