Just acquired a used a700, and have been taking JPEG photos of landscapes strictly set on the Landscape setting alone using the Function dial. I like JPEGS to save time in pp.
I noticed that the photos were good but the greens seem to be overemphasized or oversaturated.
I then took some photos of a red car near my home, and found that the red was translated more towards orange on this setting. I read a review that stated that this camera has a tendency to shift reds slightly towards orange.
I read a suggestion somewhere to turn DRO off and shoot in either P, A, S, or M for more realism and natural colors using the Standard or Vivid Creative Mode. Turned DRO off, and took some of the same shots of the red car, and some of my green lawn, using Aperture Priority and Vivid mode, and the colors appeared to be more realistic or truthful to what I was seeing in the viewfinder. Even in the Standard mode.
It seems that DRO is biased when interpreting colors in the Landscape mode.
Have any of you experienced the same situation? What settings have you used for more natural and realistic colors with sharpness?
Suggestions are appreciated being an a700 newbie.
