Do you use the saturated color or neutral color mode?

Also....this cam doesn't seem to remember custom settings after powering it off and then back on. Any workaround?

I know that he uses saturated colour on his DX6490, as he is always going on about the great Kodak colours.

I'm guessing that the setting you refer to is the exposure compensation, when I used my DX6490 for a 16 second night shot on M mode, I forgot to reduce the shutter timer for my next picture in full daylight and I'm sure you can guess what happened.

Exposure compensation settings are not retained when the compensation is made in PhD mode. (PhD is not the collegiate doctoral degree that many of you know; but rather an acronym for 'Push here Dummy') When setting exposure compensation in Program mode, it is remembered. I guess it seems logical when I think about it. Full auto mode would always revert to its default when ever the camera is powered down and back up or whenever modes are changed. This assures the photographically inept that their snapshot will not be screwed up. I guess I'm surprised that Kodak even provided means in the firmware for making compensation in Full Auto mode.

Brian.....what mode do you usually use?

I use auto mode a lot,,,with landscape or macro,,,but for low light and night shots full manual mode is my baby,,,,i like to tell the camera what it`s supposed to do,,,,

Little tip though,,when taking shots of wildlife or subjects as fars as 5 feet or more,,set the DC to macro mode,,even from that far it will only focus on the close subject and not the background,,speeds things up big time,,i use this a lot when capturing hummer shots like these...this was taken about 4 feet away,,full zoom and withflash set to compulsory and macro applied...
