      Greetings,

      I recently purchased a Canon 80d with two Canon lenses.
      I was shooting some colorful red roses, but no matter what I did in the presets, I could not replicate colors accurately. In fact, not even close.
      I used the Scene Intelligent Mode, and Viola!! The image turned out perfectly. So my question is: Did I just spend all
      that money on a Canon Point and Shoot named an 80d? Thnx, Tony

        Not at all, you bought a moderately rugged dslr body for more control over the shot, interchangeable lenses and better performance from the sensor. If you used the landscape preset it probably would behave similarly to the scene intelligent.

        You could have solved this likely by shooting on manual and color balancing with grey card to the available light, that has a huge impact on color tone and auto wb doesn't get it right every time. The preset scenes will do very specific things to color tone which you may not like.

        But to be fair i have never shot using any presets I always white balance in manual and then take the raw file and season color and saturation to taste.

        I did have the Picture Style set to Landscape and could not get an accurate color reproduction. I will keep working on it and thanks very much for your feedback. Regards,

        Tony
