We analyze the color of every digital camera using Imatest Imaging Software and a GretagMacbeth color chart. This software helps us determine the color error of each digital camera. The chart below depicts the colors produced by the Canon PowerShot S500. The outer squares of each color tile on the chart is the color produced by the camera. The inner square is a version slightly corrected for error by Imatest.
