post processing - slight increase in saturation

post processing - slight increase in saturation

I’ve had the G1 for about a week and it’s proven to be an excellent camera.  The color rendition is the best I’ve seen in a camera of this price.  So much so that even the jpeg file requires very little post processing.  The DPReview review of the camera says it all.  Currently there are only two micro 4/3 lenses.  More are coming and you can use the 4/3 lens with an adaptor as well as other lenses with other adaptors including the Leica M-mount lenses.

I shot these photographs last weekend with the Lumix 45-200mm f/4-5.6 zoom lens with the lens at or near wide open around 200mm.  I also used spot meter setting and a single AF focal point.  Although this lens will never give a Canon L zoom any competition, it is very respectable.   Image is a little soft but not bad.  Really.  And the lens is tiny.

The above photo was  adjusted for a slight increase in saturation using Aperture 2.  The photos below were not adjusted.  No increase in saturation, no adjustment of colors, no change in brightness,  sharpening etc.
