Question about Fuji MX-600 Digital Camera
My set up is: Mac G4 with OS X 10.3.9. Printer is an HP Photosmart 7960. I'm using the default settings. Cameras: Canon A60, Fuji S602Z Problem: I just purchased a Finepix s602Z camera and am having a lot of fun learning how to operate it. The pictures look great on the screen, and I thought the prints looked great as well, until I took a picture of my brother in laws 1955 Chevy. It's a beautiful red metallic. with ghost flames. The photo looks great on the CRT, but when I print it comes out very orange looking :( I did some more tests, and the S602Z does tend to shift reds slightly to orange, but not anywhere near what the printer is doing. I also have a Canon A60, and it's reds look and print just fine. The prints match the screen very good with the A60. I've done both manual and auto white-balance but that doesn't affect the prints much. The A60 prints look like the screen, and the S602Z shifts the reds to orange when printing. After doing some research, I find that there could be some red-orange shift with the Fuji, but I wouldn't think it would be this excessive when printing. I thought I ran across something about the Photosmart 7960 creating orangish prints as well. Am I getting a 'double whammy' with the printer and the S602 ? I've played some with the icc profiles of the printer, but nothing seems to make a difference. I am not having any luck finding icc profiles for the S602Z. Do any exist? Or could all of this be related to the OS X ColorSync? Anyone have any experience using a 602z with the photosmart 7960 printer? Thanks,

Actually had the reverse problem when I started printing my digital files at home back in 2001 ... everything I printed shifted to red. It ended up being a monitor calibration issue ... my monitor wasn't showing how red the images actually were, so when I adjusted red in PS the printer went crazy with the reds. Finally got a new CRT for PS work and a calibration kit. Problem solved. You might be having a monitor calibration issue as well ... keep us posted.
