Re: Since when is purple blue?

I have long noticed this problem with digital cameras, and for a long time I thought that they simply could not reproduce purple properly. I still find that my D200 has this difficulty, but I have figured out a solution. I always get the problem when I use matrix metering and follow the camera's recommendations. When I see this happening, I switch to manual metering, either spot or center-weighted, and the problem goes away. I think the matrix system frequently tends to overexpose purple, especially deep purple, and renders it as lavender or some other light shade.
