Default Chrome Setting

I have a chrome setting on my digital camera which produces extremely strong colors (which can be nice because sometimes stuff gets washed out by blue) How do you feel about Chrome?

I have a similar setting called "vivid" on my Canon camera. I always shoot in vivid mode because my camera shoots, also, with too much blue. Vivid setting gave more realistic colors and removed the cold, dead look.

Contrarian view: I find the vivid settings give falsely strong color. All of the shots I have submitted here from my old Canon A80 needed some desaturation of color to look acceptable, especially if shot on a sunny day.

Cold can be adjusted for by warming instead of increasing saturation.

Hey Greg, I'm guessing you have a Fuji? If so I would stick to using the Chrome setting. I used it 100% of the time when I used a Finepix S7000. The difference isn't huge but I like my color vibrant.

I used this feature on most of my earlier digital shots, I actually turned it on by accident. It works great on sunny days when the light is good. The colors really "pop", especially with clean engines:
