I realize this will start the Nikon vs Canon thing again but this was in the June 2003 Popular photography & Imaging. They reviewed the Canon 10d and I quote:

"Color accuracy in both sRGB and Adobe RGB (1998) produced surprisingly precise skin tones and realistic, saturated colors. (In fact, as we go to press, the 10D holds the record for color accuracy in ANY camera film or digital." Taken from Page 180.

it got really great reviews in every thing else also.

Realise that Pop photo is heavily sponsored by Canon...

realistic, saturated colors in other words oversaturated colours because that's what consumers like to see (and get from their Kodak Gold Max printed on 1-hour labs).

and you base this on what? In comparison to K64? Velvia?

I agree with maintaining a healthy cynicism when reading commercial reviews, but equally unsupported blanket statements are not very helpful either.

In any case, saturation is very much a matter of user choice on DSLRs, as this is selectable parameter - on the 10D this ranges from probably less saturation than any film on the market to distinctly over saturated.

More important is colour accuracy. Frankly I find the statement
10D holds the record for color accuracy in ANY camera film or digital hard to accept in any absolute sense, simply because any DSLR is limited in the range of colours that can be captured compared to film, however, it is true that the 10D can produce very neutral images and excellent skin tones - though the final results will depend largely on the processing software used.

Cheers,

Colin
