Getting the "Nikon" vivid colors from a Canon 40D

  1. Could elaborate on how do you do
    it? Could you do it using white balance in camera or you have to
    do it in computer?

  2. Hi, Y,

    I did it with Canon's picture styles. As you may know, Canon's Picture Styles are a way to customize the scene settings that convert a RAW image to the final JPEG image.

    I created some custom picture styles that vividify dull Canon 50D RAW images as you see from above. To use them, you need to choose Auto White Balance in Canon's DPP editor, then load the picture style I created. If you need these picture styles, please let me know at pixel DOT life AT gmail DOT com.

    Hope that helps...
