Samsung NX1000 review

White balance and colour

With the camera set to its standard colour mode, I find the colours lack vibrancy. JPEGs appear more like unedited raw files than the highly saturated and print-ready images one would expect. As such, I did not rely on it that often. Other colour modes can be used with the Picture Wizard activated, including vivid, which injects some welcome punch into images, and several other presets.

Once the colour mode has been set to taste, colour rendition is very good. Auto white balance is predictable and its tone often a little cool, which is not unusual. Provided one is vigilant for scenes that may trick the colour balance, such as where one colour is dominant, auto white balance can be relied upon.
