SATOBI - a nice little upgrade
6

I'm sure I'm late to the party, but after upgrading my K-1 firmware a while back I recently started using the SATOBI image setting. I must say I really like the new color science Ricoh has come up with. Big thank you for back-porting it to the older models.

Truth be, I've always found Pentax image parameters to be a little garish, even "Natural", while more muted than "Bright", doesn't quite live up to its name. Sometimes the color balance works, and most times I can anyway persuade it back to something I like in post, but SATOBI gets closer to what I look for, more often, than any of the old presets.

Could I call it "Fuji-like" without causing great offense? Because that's the vibe I'm getting.
