Generally color appearance is assessed according to a classification scheme such as shown in Figure 17, wherein radial distance represents increased color saturation, circumferential distance corresponds to changes in hue and height corresponds to increased lightness.
The Focus includes a more advanced camera than the other two, and you can adjust everything from image contrast to color saturation. There's a pretty good anti-shake setting, too.

Deer in Emerald Field and Deer in Emerald Field #2 (both 2006) read like identical twins, their only appreciable differences the second version's stronger, crisper colors (essentially a duplication of the effect of increasing an image's color saturation in Photoshop) and a tiny differentiation in the treatment of the deer's fur.
Full line of inorganic color pigments offers high-strength red, yellow and black synthetic iron oxides, which feature cleaner color shades, better rheology, dispersibility and color saturation. Also high-heat stable noncadmium browns and tans for PVC, PE, PS, PC and PP when used with proper stabilization.
