I recently went on a two week long trip to Italy, where I had the opportunity to extensively use a nikon d7000 (along with a 18-105mm travel lens).
Now, after finishing sorting and development of the several hundred very different RAW images, I have the impression that green tones are often overly saturated. In most images that included any kind of vegetation, grass, trees and so on, I noticed a very strong, almost unrealistic saturation, which I wasn't able to correct with custom white balance and lightrooms global saturation slider only. For many shots I had to manually reduce saturation on the greens and also a bit of yellow.
Is this a known problem of nikons, of d7000s, maybe of this single camera? Or is it just my perception?
Also, how big can differences in color reproduction between different camera models be in general (assuming the same developing process from RAW)? Until now I haven't had that many different cameras in use...
For clarification and to answer questions from the (already good) answers: No, sadly I don't work on a properly calibrated monitor. This is quite a subjective observation I made.
What I was describing is just the colors I see when looking at a RAW file straight from camera, in Lightroom, without any corrections done (white balance "as shot"), and this compared to the same from other cameras I have worked with.
As found in one answer, Nikon really tends to have strong green saturation in the from-camera jpgs, so the camera-selected white balance (especially magenta/green tint) might be part of the answer.
And yes, sure, I can correct any color tint or white balance problem in Lightroom when developing RAW, that is actually what I did. But I didn't think of camera calibration profiles! That might make developing easier and more consistent for me in the future. Thanks! :)
