    1st of all...

    THANKS to Andy Stanton for helping me decide on my new camera...I went w/ a z980

    BUT...

    I've noticed that the pictures have a decidedly yellowish, greenish tint...for real.

    [I even had taken a shot of an old red brick colonial building the other day...& the bricks were orange, w/ a greenish tint.]

    what can be done...???

    thanks,

    Actually I recommended the Z950.

    Something isn't right. Is your camera set in smart capture mode (the red camera icon on the top selector dial)? Smart Capture puts all settings in auto mode so the camera does all the work. If your camera is set for smart capture mode and you still have bad color accuracy, you may have a serious problem and should contact Kodak.

    hello again...

    sorry it took so long to get back...had a REAL bad experience buying TWO defective (refurbished) z980's off eBay...from a ****ty dealer. Didn't even get a full refund from this character after discovering a defect w/ camera #2.

    anyway...I'm now thinking about simply going to BestBuy & grabbing a FujiFilm Z2700...or a Canon SX120...especially in light of the fact that I now know (mostly from info garnered in this BBS) that the Schneider lens thing ain't all it's cracked up to be.

    [& also...I've got a bad taste in my mouth now over Kodak].

    All I want is something that recreates the real world realistically/truly; & to be able to work w/ those shots in PhotoShop, PSP, Illustrator, etc.

    thanks; & sorry for all the trouble...
