Hello to all,

New fz3.

After the first chaotic use, i think i am ready to discover the best settings.

Bad luck... the weather overhere is freezy,foggy or cloudy.

I allready noticed some too pink color of peopleskin.

I think the green colors (gras) are too greeny.( i like realistic colors)

Maybe a matter of oversaturation?

Questions...

Annyone has the same feeling ?

There is no saturationsetting in the fz3.

Do filters, who temper the colors, exist?



Thanks in advance.

I know EXACTLY what you are referring to. That is why I returned my FZ3 and succumbed to the pressure by purchasing the FZ20.

With the FZ3, I desparately tried every white balance setting to no avail. I was also dissatisfied with the excessive noise that is not as well pronounced on the FZ20.

Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

Thanks for the input, Rubble,

I too was first on the WB-setting track.

But it's more a case of saturation, imo.

Check out the above link to a thread where I initially explained my concerns. I could never correct the color balance or saturation levels. I experimented with the FZ20 and to my astonishment, the annoyances that plagued the FZ3 where not present in the FZ20. I wasn't content on spending the extra cash, but in the end, I'm much happier.

The to green gras i can also see in other brands-shots on the web, specialy those who looks imoa littleoverexposed.

What i go to do is trying to get the 'visual monitortest' from Fuji.

Only 5 dollar or so.

It's a cd-rom with pictures + colorcard (paper).

Fuji claims the test is good for adjusting colors on monitor,scanner and printer.And make them related to eachother.

This colorstuff is complex.

Youcan easy adjust your monitor on brightness and contrast with the wellknown grayfields.

But for colors you need a reference. (the papercard)
