Nikons Love the Color Red

New cameras, in this case a Nikon 7200, are always a trying experience. New settings need to be learned and adjustments have to be made.

In this case, even a fix was needed with the computer’s operating system to allow it to recognize the new camera’s 14-bit raw files.

Of course, any new toy has to be put through its paces. The following are a few initial photos I took around home and one in a forest setting nearby.

As always, Nikon cameras love the color red.

  1. Wow! The saturated colors are wonderful. Do you photo shop any of these? Sandy

    • I shoot in Raw format, then use Photoshop Elements to crop, etc. before saving them as Jpegs. But, the Nikon does a great job with the saturated reds. I didn’t “pump up” the photo of the geraniums.
