    Colour problems with Sony DSC-H2

    The College I'm working at has a Sony DSC-H2 as its "good" camera (I had control over the purchase of video gear, but the still camera was pre-exisisting).

    I'm using it to do shoot stills for marketing, including press ads. In most respects, it does fine, but I'm finding I'm having real problems with colour correction.

    When I try and correct CMYK levels for press, the red is incredibly saturated. As an unsatisfactory workaround, I'm adjusting highlight and shadow levels as best I can, then using Selective Colour to suck some of the red out.

    Does anyone know of a camera setting I'm missing that could fix this, or is it just something I'll have to live with, with this level camera?

    White balance or "color balance", possibly black balance as well.

    I realize this is an old post but this is a problem that we go 'round about here at work.

    Point and shoot and low-end SLRs often have 'color options.' A popular color option in the camera menu is 'Vivid Color.'

    When sending email pix, 'vivid color' looks great on the screen. However, I have the same problem adjusting for the press - the colors (red especially) are garish and saturated - impossible to adjust to satisfaction and much too time consuming to try.

    I secretly change the editorial cameras to 'standard color' every time I get my hands on one of their point and shoots.
