The correct colors cannot be reproduced when any of the RGB information is saturated. Use [Chroma]/[Luminance] to adjust whether to reproduce the colors or lightness of saturated areas.
Use [Saturation]/[Hue] to adjust whether to emphasize saturation or hue when reproducing saturated areas.
3. DR expansion
Restores the colors and gradation of blown-out areas.

|5||Color circle||Adjustment is made by moving the control points on the color circle.|
Image before adjustment
1. "Green" is made more bluish and vivid and lighter
2. "Yellow" is made more vivid and darker
3. "Red" is made more vivid and lighter
