Re: Nikon color
In reply to Robin Casady, Nov 4, 2012

Nikon color in terms of RGB, once corrected for WB, tends the warmer hue. That is green is slightly toward yellow, Red to orange. Recently nikon has changed the blue (cooler) and it is somewhat purple.

Opposite, Canon has much cooler tonality. Sony is very similar to Nikon. None are 100% accurate.

Those who hate warmer color never be pleased with Nikon. I personally like warmer but occasionally feel Nikon has gone too far. I hardly can process any of pictures to produce vivid red (like Ferrari red) without a minimalitic orange cast. Take a picture of red rose and you will see. In city lights all red neon will turn somwhat orange.
