Even being a DSLR doesn't get you away from oversaturation. The Nikon D40X is prone to oversaturation in its default settings, which the EXIF seems to indicate that you are using.

Saturation. The Nikon D40x produces images with fairly vibrant color, oversaturating strong red and blue tones. The oversaturation is a little higher that what we're used to seeing from a DSLR, but far from the most we've seen from consumer models.

The D40x (like its "predecessor") has really saturated colors at the default settings -- maybe too much so.
I'm not knocking your camera...I almost bought a D40X instead of my Pentax K100D. I actually push the saturation levels of my photos since I prefer that look. In my mind, super bright colors are how I remember the scene so I tend to adjust my photos to match.

I agree that anyone who is using images posted online to judge what these colors look like, you really need to go see them in person. That is unless you are stuck somewhere that your local GM dealership isn't just around the corner, like 13F20. Even I'm waiting to decide on my final color choice until I can see each color on the Camaro in person. Seeing them on another car doesn't seem to be helping me much since the lines are all wrong.

Thanks Venom, your picture actually is the closest to what the color actually looks like in bright sun .. Here it is again.. A very good comparison to red as well.. As you can see, the color is red-orange(more red), however it is no hugger or tangier orange.

Some of you guys crack me up. Seriously. It is almost orange denial in here. I've owned just about all of the popular GM orange cars, consider myself pretty crazy when it comes to buying orange cars. Here is one example, I owned all three of these at the same time:



Also had these two:



That being said, I'm disappointed with the IOM. Yes, i've seen it in person several times now, rolling around on the Solstice. I was going to order a bright orange 2010 Camaro, until I saw this color. It IS more red than orange. It looks just like the photo above, a reddish color with orange highlights at the body lines. Don't get me wrong, it is a GREAT color, but it isn't the orange I expected. I wanted something along the lines of hugger orange metallic, like the SRT8 Challenger has. Something like the convertible concept Camaro had. Saw that one in person too.

Summary: IOM is a great color, it will be popular. Those of you that expected hugger orange or a brighter orange will be disappointed by it though.

I changed my order to cyber gray.

It really depends on what year Hugger Orange you have a preferance for I should know I own a 1970 Hugger Orange Camaro and have looked long and hard at IOM.

In my opinion IOM is almost a dead ringer for the old 1970 code 65 "Hugger Orange" except with metallic flake.

In 1970 Hugger Orange was code 65, was a Red/Orange which GM called "Hugger Orange" in the Camaro line. Pontiac used it also calling it "Carousel Red" on GTO's.

If you are referring to the 1969 color then in 1969 Hugger Orange was more Orange and had a bit less red. This was GM code 72.

In 1999 Hugger Orange was again offered on the Camaro but was a more pale orange and was called "Peachy" because it had a peach hue to it in the sun.

Correct. My pic above compares code 72 vs 1999. The 99 color is less red, has a milky look to it. 1970 hugger (code 65) is still very close to code 72, it looks far closer to orange than red. IOM looks very accurate to "tomato soup metallic" as someone else mentioned earlier. I'd say tomato soup red with a hint of orange metallic is the best description of the color, in person.

IMO...The difference is the flake and how it reflects, both Spectural and Diffuse. if the paint has average factory quality peel and finish then it would look darker (diffuse). Less Peel and more polish - then it would appear lighter and brighter (spectural).

Orange???

That is obviously not orange. Go to a grocery store if you are in doubt as to what color orange is. I ordered Orange and if they bring that thing up to me they can keep it. That is NOT Orange. It might be a nice red tinted color, but NOT orange. Can anyone else see clearly? I guess you got me going up to the dealer to see if I can find that Inferno Orange Metallic on something else. You folks that see orange on that car are goofy to be sure.

If you are expecting Dukes of Hazzard Orange, you will be disappointed. I would change your order to your number 2 color..A safe bet is Cyber Grey as it seems to be the most eye catching color at the auto shows..

Something funny about this statement is that, the other day (maybe a little overcast), I saw one of the orange Challengers with the stripes on the hood and had to take a second to decide whether it was orange or red. As it drove past, it looked closer to orange, but overall much closer to IOM.

Unless, of course, I didn't actually see a Hemi Orange Challenger, but the actual red one... it looked orange as it drove past, though. Anyone have a similar experience?

Well i drive a Torred Dodge Daytona . It indeed looks orange in at times in the right sunlight. The orange Chally is definately orange so you may have seen a Torred Chally.

Ah. That's what I was wondering as soon as I pulled up the Dodge site. I just haven't seen anything other than orange with the stripes around here and I know the Challenger that lives in the near vicinity of where I saw it is orange. Maybe I'll see it parked somewhere and I can make a better assessment.

Challenger is offered in metallic red, as well as orange. You would not mistake the orange one for red, it is BRIGHT orange.

Orange:



Red:

I never liked the Orange GTO's that came out. They looked alright when they were new, but now 2 years later they are fading like mofos. Spice Red seems to hold its own alright. I love dark red, but this new Camaro color is just awesome.

I saw a Pontiac in IOM today. That is a sweet color and it will look quite handsome on a new Camaro. I think it is just right.

TorRed is a solid red with no metallic, with a hint of orange. Inferno Red is a deeper red with metallic (crystal pearl).

Maybe it's actually a TorRed Challenger running around here, but in the past when I've seen it and it hasn't been overcast, I could've sworn it was the Hemi orange. So much so that I was under the impression that you could only get the stripes with orange.

Like I said, maybe I'll see it parked one day and can take a better look.
