re: #195 goddamnedfrank

Then what does it have to do with if not the science? Is this a subjective assessment?

Digital camera color is very complex (well, so was the analog color techniques.) For example, the color filter dyes used in the Bayer (or other) filter are different between sensors and manufacturers. Then, the re-creation of the tri-stimulus basic colors from the filters varies.

Then we get to what you label “subjective”. In creating the final color curves different manufacturers have different priorities. I always liked the Kodak and Fujifilm colors in the early years of DSLRs because the old film companies knew that humans prefer very subtle color biases in different situations (which is why they made a wide variety of color films.)

Of the digital camera makers who weren’t film makers I thought, and still do, that Canon did the best in coming up with their color curves.
