We tend to forget that things like exposure, contrast, saturation and sharpness are matters of personal taste not technical absolutes. Any advanced camera (people are constantly misusing the term "point & shoot" on this forum) should allow for those things to changed but none can be expected to do well out of the box all the time.

while the term is misused, it is representative of the camera because the majority of users (except us, of course) will just use auto and forget about everything else. That's why anti-shake technology and low-light sensitivity has been selling points. All one needs is good experience and skills and those bonus features are really just icing on the cake.

I've barely skratched the surface for my manual settings, but I am really happy with dSLRs. It's making me think about the shot a bit more, like driving stick shift (as opposed to auto!). chris

Yes, I believe this quote states it perfectly and is the way with DSLR's.

Thanks, Kelly!
So have you decided on which camera you are getting? Be sure to try both for the feel at a store before you buy either.
