Particularly intense botanical red; it remains the Achilles’ heel of the sensor in many (all?) digicams. I often see things in my garden that I just can’t get close to with the combination of camera and screen; hm, perhaps the problem is computer screens not camera sensors? Here we have some Japanese maple leaves against blue sky.

Red Japanese maple leaves against blue sky

The leaves were actually redder than this, but at least the sensor, while losing some of the intensity, managed to get close to the tint.

The red is very intense. Where many camera sensors have problems is high contrast red. One has to constantly examine the histogram.
