Saturation [other than Monochrome]

Lets you control the saturation of images in seven levels, from [-3] to [+3].
You can also set the camera to[A] (auto), where it makes adjustments automatically to suit shooting conditions.
Moving toward the minus side results in a softer degree of brightness; moving toward the plus side provides a deeper brilliance.
