Every time you click the shutter, the KODAK Color Science Chip performs an instantaneous and advanced analysis of collected scene data to identify and adjust multiple factors that influence picture quality
Scene light source is detected and adjustments are made to capture bright whites and true, vivid colors under difficult lighting conditions - fluorescent, tungsten, or daylight
Scene content is analyzed for luminance, focal distance, subject matter orientation, and color to determine the correct exposure and capture the natural details, accurate flesh tones, and rich colors you see in your composition
