V-Lux Typ 114, STD vs VIVD vs NAT.

Hello everyone, I have yet another rookie question. 

The owners manual defines the 3 settings in the title as in the attached photo, so my understanding is Natural falls between Vivid and Standard and that seems to tally with the results I am getting  

There is a yellow dahlia in the garden that only in the NAT (Natural) option will it capture the true color. The Vivid looks artificial and the Standard looks dull. 

So my question is setting do most of you use and why? 

 

Thank you you so much

Charlyee.

Yes obvious really. I was getting less than happy about mainly foliage shots. So Natural may salvage the camera.

Thanks

I use standard but your observation about natural has me interested in doing a little testing.

Wonderful, looking for forward to the results of your testing.

Not sure what mine is set to - an admission that I still need to read the extensive on-line manual! :eek:

That’s funny since I hate reading manuals as well and only do so when I am desperate as was the case this time.

Finally got around to checking the settings on mine - Natural (set by previous owner).

So far I'm happy with the results I've been getting, so will leave it set there (for now anyway :) ).

Nah, go for VIVID Graham.  You only live once!!  Seriously, I like the pop which vivid gives me, but of course it's a highly personal thing.

Not Graham 😁 but I decided to take your advice yesterday. The water was murky and It was a dull and cloudy day besides. Here is the result on Vivid, must say I quite like it. Thank You.
