Ideally, a camera will reproduce colors as accurately as possible, making them look vivid, but natural. We test color accuracy by photographing a GretagMacbeth ColorChecker test chart and comparing the colors the camera reproduces with the known colors of the test chart. The ColorChecker is made of 24 different color tiles from around the color spectrum. The image below shows how the Canon A650 IS’s colors compare to the test chart.
