Canon SX230HS VS SX260HS color acurracy.

Hello everyone.

While reading reviews about both cameras I found out that digital camera info does claim SX230HS color accuracy is pretty bad while SX260HS color accuracy is pretty awesome.

quote :

SX230HS - Color (Score - 9.59)

Canon tends to be hit or miss when it comes to color accuracy, and the SX230 is a miss for sure. The smallest error value we could achieve was 3.82, quite a bit worse than average, even for a compact camera. Flesh tones were particularly far off, with many shades of yellow turning to green. More on how we test color.

SX260HS Color accuracy -

Color (Score - 14.49)

Color accuracy is above average, though not remarkably so. Errors are spread pretty evenly across the gamut, with problems in all shades, though reds and oranges were slightly worse than the rest. These tones will affect rendition of human subjects, but the errors are not severe enough to distract. More on how we test color.

We recorded a minimum error value of 2.76 in our lab test, which is just a little bit better than the 3.00 average. Saturation is a little too high, over by 7.7%.

End of quote.

Any comments about these findings ?

Does anyone have both cameras ?

What is your opinion about these scores ?
