Hi! I recently purchased a Canon SX510 and love it, except for the fact that the "My Colors" functions of Vivid, Vivid Blue, Vivid Green, Vivid Red and Custom do not seem to work. I can see absolutely no difference in exact photos taken with and without the enhanced colors. B&W and Sepia work fine. I'm wondering if my camera is defective...doesn't anyone else have this camera and have the same issue?

Hi Flipside,

May I wish you a warm welcome to the CameraLabs forum.

Are you shooting in RAW or RAW+JPG? I think the My Colors functionality is only available in JPG mode (but I haven't got a manual so I can't check).

Bob.

Hi Bob, thanks for the warm welcome!

I first had to educate myself on what a RAW file was. My last camera was a Panasonic Lumix point & shoot and before that, I had a Canon Rebel 35mm. Anyway, after reading about RAW vs JPG, I did a search in my manual (.pdf file) and it did not mention RAW, nor could I find such a setting on the camera. So, I would have to say that I am shooting in JPG mode...

Hi Flipside,

Sprry for the bum steer. I've now had a chance to look at the manual. On page 153 there's a list of shooting modes and it seems that the My Colors functionality isn't available in a number of shooting modes. Could this be the issue?

Bob.
