Color performance is quite good--at least from ISO 80-400. Subjects look natural, bright, and vivid and colors are reasonably accurate. If you want to punch them up a bit there's a High Color setting as well as a Low Color setting should you want them a bit more faded looking. Exposure is very good as is white balance with the exception of the Tungsten setting, which is a little green. The auto white balance had the same results.
