Anyone with good photographic skills know theres anything I can do about it? I have an Olympus C-725 UZ...
Kevin, it is all about white balance and colour management with digital photography. If the colour balance isn't quite right, then you'll get colour shift - this may not be only due to the white balance, but also the processing which the camera does on the image - some cameras don't reproduce colours so accurately.

Secondly is the colour space. You have to try and find out what colour space your camera records the images in. When you open the pictures in photoshop, there will probably be a change from this input colour space into the colour space in which photoshop works. If you want to display images on the internet, then the best colours space to choose before saving the image after processing it is sRGB.

Thirdly, you have to make sure your monitor is correctly calibrated to ensure that what you see on the screen is an accurate representation of what the colours should be.

Try searching to find out a bit more information on these subjects, I'm pretty sure that there are a lot of good sources of reference on the internet.

Cheers, Mark.

and getting those monitors set can be a pain unless you have that cool thing you put in front of your monitor to sense the color so you can adjust it right... and DON'T have dual monitors other was its pain to the second power .

how do you calibrate your monitors, mark. i used this program (if forget the name now). it worked pretty well i guess. do you use software or hardware for calibration? the biggest pain is when i set my monitor "perfectly" and then i send a pic to my mom who couldn't care less if her monitors have the right color

Colors on monitor seem fine... all my other pictures have normal colors. I don't even have Photoshop!

I'd have to guess it's the combo of my camera and fluorescent colors. It gets even weirder with the flasher on. None of the shades of orange in the pic are right:

Well, I use a Mac, which has colour managemnet built into the operating system, so this helps a lot. And there are several programs available to help you setup the monitor to a reasonably good level. But I have also had problems of people complaining that my pictures are too dark, but it is simply because there monitors are badly calibrated.

Yep, the sensor has been overloaded or the colour processing software hasn't interpreted the colours well enough. This is a trait of digital cameras, even my D1 falls foul of this at times. But using the correct exposure and maually setting the white balance helps a great deal to overcome these problems.

Not sure yet ... I think its bling bling and the additional weight is a question.

Still .... haven't quite decided yet.

Like Kevin mentioned, yes it will.

But you cannot mount the 7 mm spacer (808313) on the rear uprights. What I did was to mount about 2 to 3 mm (instead of 7 mm) using left over broken bearing cases.
