When I look through the LCD, the coloring looks like a cross between black and white and sepia, although it is in color mode. (I have checked and double checked several times) I have taken pictures anyway, and the color is bad off (kind of brownish with a hint of color). I don't see a solution in the menu setup for this problem. Please advise!! Thanks!

The SP 800UZ doesn't have a black-and-white or sepia mode. You can convert a color picture to black-and-white or sepia by editing the picture on the camera. Full details are in the "Edit" section of the manual (page 38 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at
In general, you're better off converting to black-and-white or sepia using photo editing software on a computer rather than doing it on the camera. The computer will give you much better control over things like brightness and contrast.
See the instructions in the "Shooting in a My Colors Mode" section of the manual (page 62 in my copy). Among your choices are "B/W" for black&white and "Sepia" for an old-fashioned brown-tinted look.

Unfortunately the camera does not have a menu option to take images in black or white or sepia. You can take them in color and then using photo editing software modify the image to be monotone or sepia in color.
What the manual doesn't tell you is that you need to change the REC mode first to be able to fint the buttons in MENU.
Fist go into the REC mode (the one above menu when taking a photo). Change this to PGM and click OK. Now go into MENU, on the 3/4 page second button down should be a box with a + in the corner. This is the colour mode option. You can now change to vivid, sepia or black and white.
You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says.
"You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."
With P, A, S, M, mode, (set using the exposure mode dial) the following four modes can be selected to suite the image. Vivid color is to be selected to produce more vivid image than the natural colored image (default), Black and white is to produce monochrome image in black and white, and Sepia is to be if it should be the sepia tone. Also, they can be selected in the movie recording.*The color mode of the saved images cannot be changed. They should be selected before recording. *Automatic Digital Subject Program and AUTO can not select them. (natural color only)
