Hi Roberto,

I agree...from my experience with the 510, the white balance during the day is usually pretty inconsistent and the images often have a rather heavy yellow/green color cast to them. However, in the morning and late afternoon, the 510 seems to capture the most correct and pleasing colors of any camera I own. I think that Olympus E cameras are really unique in this regard. I've also found that it has the some of the best focus performance in those lower light conditions as well. Not sure if this is common to all 510's or I just happen to get lucky with my copy. At any rate it's become my camera of choice during the "magic" hours.

Yeah beautiful shots. Goes to show that waiting for the shot is more important than having the best equipment.

By the way, I also find the center point to be very good even in low light.
