DSC-R1 colors
Mar 26, 2011

Hi to all you Sony gear owners.

I am a big fan of Olympus DSLR, I own close to a dozen of Oly cams. I prefer Olympus to Canon, Nikon and Pentax because the colors are more realistic to my eyes. But last week, I had the opportunity to buy the classic DSC-R1 used but in good condition. Wow! What a shock! I was and still am blown away by the colors I see on my monitor. The best I've seen on any camera and I've tried close to 100 different ones in the last 4 years or so.

Now I am asking you: what are the best settings for the R1 about saturation, sharpness, contrast, etc. I noticed that normal saturation give boosted colors and the minus setting give muted colors. The best should be in between these 2 settings, I think.

Is there any other way to adjust the colors? What are your favorite settings on this camera?

Thank you in advance.

-Jean-Pierre
