Here is another outdoor photo. Canon has done a good job with this camera which is directed toward the Full Auto market niche.

For comparison, here is a repeat of the last photo, but taken with the S-90 camera. To Canon credit, you will notice that there is very little difference in the images created by the SD-4000, and the images created by the S-90.

The colors are a bit different but indeed you don't see much difference in detail at this size.

back to that flower though, was that flower red or pink? It appears very link in the photo. It would be unlike Canon to be that far off the mark on color.

The flower was indeed very red. You have both a small sample photo as well as the full resolution photo to judge by. I am the only poster who posts full resolution photos. And that full resolution photo link show very accurate colors. I really feel that Canon has done a good job with the SD-4000.

thank you sarah!! i was so disappointed to see that you weren't happy with the sony, and was hoping this camera would be better. so far, it looks good!

i'm going to start another thread as to what i am looking for out of a camera. please look out for it. i would appreciate your opinion. so far, the sd4000 looks very good (minus the zoom during video).

The SD-4000 does indeed allow zooming while filming, but as you noted, it has only 3.8X optical zoom.

Yes I do and that photo does not show a red flower - perhaps a violet-red or something along those lines. Canon does a better job with colors than any other manufacturer - if not always necessarily 100% accurate, very appealing. However, my monitor is calibrated and that flower is clearly pink'ish. Now maybe that flower was violet-red and the camera produced it accurately, but it is still not red. Bump the yellows up and you will see red.

This is red:

OK, now I see your point more clearly. In my definition it was in the red color family, so I agree it would be much more accurate to term the color as violet.

Those were just examples of red snatched from the web dottcomm1.
