Color Saturation I just upgraded to the Digital Rebel XT, and I noticed that my images (i usually shoot at ISO 100 w/a polarizer) are a little bland in the color saturation department. I have the camera set to Adobe RGB and am using photoshop to process the images (I usually shoot the high-quality JPGs), but I'm frustrated that the only way to get the color to match what I'm truly seeing in front of me is to pump up the saturation levels in Photoshop. I'd like the camera to capture that in the f

PowerShot A530 It takes digital images and transfers them via the memory card to the computer. The images all remain on the card and the computer. The camera loses some of the images in the middle of the set giving the message: Imcompatible JPEG format.

External Flash I set my Epson 3100z camera to manual mode and set up the camera for external flash. I manually set the shutter speed to 1/60 sec and the aperture to F4. I also set my SunPak flash to F4. My exposures seem pretty good. However when I review the various photo info's, the aperture reading is F5 or F4.8 not the F4 I set. Why is this? Anyone experienced this? The shutter speed are also not always what I set on the camera.
