Have you checked your white balance? Having an improper white balance is one of the most common color problems with digital cameras. \015\012
\015\012If true color is what you're after, then you need to tell the camera what true white is, too. Try either shooting a grey card, or using an expodisc. For each lighting situation, you properly expose a shot of the grey card, or a blank frame using the expodisc, and then you set your camera to use that image as the white balance image. Now, your camera will see what you see a whole lot better. Keep in mind that the auto white balance is just a best approximation of what the camera thinks it sees. However, in many situations, there is not only one light source. There are reflected light sources, diffused light sources, and direct light sources all over the place — all of them different color temperatures and intensities. The grey card and expo disc help take these all into account. And while it may seem like a lot of trouble to set the white balance all the time, I think it will be well worth it when you (and everyone) else is amazed at the true colors you are capturing.\015\012
