High ends Canon vs. Nikon - an observation

    I do not own both cameras. However, looking through lots of samples
    available in the web, I seems to notice that photos (mostly the ones
    that I observed were portraits) taken using Canon high end DSLR (1D,
    1Ds,5D,10D, etc.) appear to have light or bland colors. In contrast,
    Nikon high end DSLR (D1, D2, D3, D200, D300, etc) appears to produce
    brighter, contrasting and rich colors. Both, however, have extremely
    sharp images. Is this general observation correct, or does it just
    depend on the photographer, the lens, lighting and the colors on the
    subject?
    Thanks for comments

    The contrast and saturation are fully under the control of the
    photographer for either camera. It is posible that the defult is
    different between them, but you don't need to use the default setting.

    And with raw you can set both the contrast and saturation after the
    photos have been taken.

    Why would compression artifacts affect one brand more than the other?

    Because different brands of cameras use different logic for the
    compression, and apply different parameters to the compression process.

    He said "compression for the net" which to me does not imply on-camera
    processing. Images above even 1 megapixel are quite rare on the 'net.

    Yep What I was trying to say is Un less you can inspect the originals There
    is no way of telling the fault Banding being more a problem of low Pixel
    count. IE the colours or lightness not spread evenly over the range.

    Your observation is not correct. Contrast, color saturation, and
    lightness are all highly adjustable and up to the photographers.
    They are also adustable by image editing programs like Photoshop.
