I am still amazed by the picture quality of some older cameras. It seems that modern camera software engineers can't quite recreate the original colors in the scene that you shot. As you know, whatever colors are captured by the camera lens and filter system (sensor filter), they are all converted to a gray scale. Yes, that's right, there are no colors in the picture. The camera computer reconstructs color from the grayscale image, and how well it matches the original scene is up to the software engineer. Different cameras make different colors. Often the camera gives you a way to adjust the colors to what you saw, through "film" selections, or in RAW processing, where another software engineer offers a different renditions of the scene.
This is why so many color pictures are disappointing OOC, and why you have do do PP to get it right.
In the old days, the engineers were apparently more artistic, and so we got those rich colors that created such good fall pictures, and good boat pictures, as you can see here on LI site.
Anyone want to argue about this?
