It takes just a little bit of tinkering with to make it do what it ought to do. On the menu, go to "Optimize Image" then go to "Custom." On the "Saturation" make it "Moderate." On the "Color Mode" make it "Adobe RGB." I am attaching a picture of my results. The left column is the camera's standard setting. The right column is the enhanced setting. You can enhance it more than this if you like. The resulting enhancements are now just like the items I photographed.
excellent stuff, never even noticed that

Perhaps some knowledgeable person will explain to us why this is.

I looked at the competition rules in Popular Photography, some time ago, and they say the minimum picture size they will accept is 9 MB. When I saw the size of my picture as being 2.74 MB, I enlarged it until the file size became 9 MB. If I could have printed it out I could have papered my living room with it. I thought their requirement was ridiculous, but later I found out about the picture size thingy.
you guys should try my aptus, it only shoots mosaic files which are 40 megs each! now that will fill a hard drive fast, i have 850 gigs between 3 drives and need to constantly put files to dvd!

I dump most of my pictures and only keep the good one. It's on a 1.4 meg floppy. And if I take another good picture, I'll have to buy another floppy.

I found this very interesting reading as I'm contemplating the purchase of a D50 in the New Year.

Thanks!

I have had an XT and the nikon...I went back to the XT...I guess the nikon just felt "cheap" and although the XT isn't known for its rockhard construction it still in my newbie opinion was a better camera

I like cheap! The cheaper the better. That way when it falls into a bucket of water, it won't be too expensive to replace.

Seriously, I have a D50 and I felt it, after reading your comment, and I don't see how it feels "cheap." I can't dent or bend it with my fingers, and I'm not going to use it as a club to beat somebody. And metal-bodied cameras don't take any better pictures. Example, the new Leica at $4,800 which can't reproduce blacks very well, without a $150 filter that the camera owner has to buy as an extra. It would be my last Leica if that ever happened to me. My Nikon takes better pictures than that.
