Color with the X70


I would like to know what Optio X70 users think of it's color? I just saw the review that AlexM had posted on his thread earlier this month. I'm an artist and I've been taking photos of my paintings (as well as landscapes) for many years with Pentax cameras because they have such rich tones. But the reviewer suggests that yellows and reds "could be richer". I would appreciate any feedback on the color reproduction of this camera.
Thank you

As with many Pentax cameras, they offer two settings in the color management... Bright and Natural.... When shooting in Landscape mode, the settings default to Bright and the saturation is boosted to display rich colors of the scenery. On the other hand, when shooting in Portrait mode, the color setting defaults to Natural and the skin tones are more true to life. It all depends how rich you want the colors to be.... The X70 features bright & natural settings, and saturation from -1 to +1. Not as rich as the Pentax DSLRs, but for a point and shoot, it is quite adequate.

If you've seen my sample images, you have seen how vibrant the colors can be.
