    Still finding my way around my new Canon S2 IS. I am pleased to find that colour reproduction is just as accurate and probably better than the A80. From what I have read it seems Canons score quite highly on this feature.

    Here is a rose.

    Wombat. Your new camera seems to handle reds well. I'm nver too sure about my former D70 or current D70s. I always feel the reds come out a bit overblown. What do I mean by that...? Sorry Sod1 - but your poppy shot is a perfect example of what I mean (you do take good sunsets, though!!). Too much red and not enough detail. I've taken a number of photos of the same type of poppy here and without PP they look like your one. Sort of drowning in undefined redness. Sod1, are you a Nikon user, too ??

    Not red - but orange this time. A Buddleia globosa starting to blossom.

    Hi Glen

    I think there was a discussion of this phenomenon sometime last year. To be fair to sod1 the S2 IS doesn't cope with "poppy red" either. I have deleted nearly all my red poppy shots and the few I have kept have had to have the colour saturation adjusted.

    The rose I posted above is more maroon than red so that may explain the better capture.

    Here is are some Lychnis flowers that are nearly as bad as "poppy red" - and this was taken on an overcast day. I think the Mk 1 human eyeball is just simply superior to my digital camera.

    You're right. That shot of yours is a bit hard on the eyes!! I've dozens of similar shots on my HDD. Pity, isn't it... poppies are nice and I have yet to figure out how to capture them well.

    Ah well, I guess that's how they'll sucker us in to buying the "next generation" with a good red-handling ability.
