Default carnation fz40 vs x90

fz40
not sure if it was the lighting in my house or what, but i could not get a good photo using the creative flower close-up mode. the center of the flower was nice and colorful but the rest of the photo had a red cast to it. this one was on iMacro.

That's usually caused by incandescent lighting - use the quick menu and change it

It looks like the Pentax shot was taken with flash.

tullio~

i think i was using the flash with the fz40. i'll have to check the camera when i get home. thanks to LTZ470 i was able to get the same (and better) results with the fz40 after i adjusted the color and changed the white balance.

Obviously the FZ is doing a better job throttling down the flash output based on the distance to the subject. The x90 image looks almost over exposed. However, the FZ images seem soft (too soft actually, considering that flash was used). Maybe the camera was too close to the subject and could not focus.
