I have been taking some photos with my new camera, and have found that once I import them to my laptop, the colors look washed out, and not as nice and vivid as on the camera LCD display.
It's a Sony HX60, and I am importing them into an HP dm4, running Fedora.
I've read about color profiles, and made sure that the calibration on my monitor was set.
The thing is that the issue arises with just importing them from the camera iteself (using Shotwell) and diplaying them with the standard Image Viewer, it's not even an issue with Gimp or an image editor with a color profile not set.
I am wondering if my camera is using some of color profile that is being lost when imported, or is it that the display on my camera is much better than the one my laptop?
I can then open the image in Gimp, and then use some enhancements to make the image look better, but I just want them to look the same as on my camera.
And here is a photo of the comparison of how the Sony HX60 & the HP dm4 render the output. This photo was taken with a cheap Lumix, but still clearly shows the difference:
