Notice the difference in the rendition of green between the FZ1v2 and the FZ20. The first pic is FZ20. The FZ20 is closer to actual color. I noticed this today. Both pics shot within one minute same exposure etc.

Interesting how cameras render things differently. Although the first is closer to how the scene looked, the grass on the second "pops" more but the bottom of the fence on the first has less detailed and looks a little cooked to me.

In fact, the FZ1v2's image looks hot by about 1/2-to-1 stop maybe? Therefore it MUST be DESTROYED!

Interesting comparison.

I just drug the FZ1 behind my truck for 2 miles and now the color is much better.

PS. Im on vacation. I expect to be back in my homeland soon as I so miss the harsh, bitter cold

Yes -1/2 a stop would change things look also a the two fences.

I ran some more tests and the difference is there with everything else being the same. Not a big deal but something I need to be aware of when PP so the prints are more accurate as I noticed it in prints as well.I noticed some difference in skin tone also.

Interesting comparison. The fz1 tends to over expose. -1/3 ev compensation is about theright starting point. That might make a little difference in the green. I doubt it would match the fz20. How about doing some other bright outdoor color comparisons and give us your opinion on the accuracies. Set the fz1 to -1/3 ev (fz20 at 0) and keep everything else equal.

Thanks, RH. The fz1 appears to have ayellow tint to it. One more request. Set the fz1 wb to cloudy. Make that two more requests. Can you do some other colors. Yellow, blue, purple, red. Bright, outdoors.
