I have just bought the DX7440 and am generally happy about the colors except for one: purple. There is a lovely purple clematis in my garden, yet when I take a picture of it it comes out blue. The problem seems more pronounced in shade. Is this a common problem with this camera? :confused:

Maybe try changing your white balance

Is this on screen or printed? If on screen it's your monitor calibration causing the color change. You can try a printing kiosk at Wal Mart or some such place and see the difference in color. I had a similar issue that I saw blue on screen but got purple when printed

Actually, Woffles, you are right. When I printed out the photo at home it came out purple after all. Funny how this only happens with that color.
