hi all...am wondering how does one capture pix with very saturated colours? do we apply PP to achieve that or can it be achieved by the metering system alone?

Got nothing to do with camera metering system

Either you shoot RAW then adjust saturation in pp or if you want to shoot JPEG, adjust the saturation in camera setting (picture style)

Btw did you read your camera manual??

Welcome to CS :)
Some cameras comes with functions for you to adjust saturation. If not, shoot in RAW & adjust accordingly during PP ;)

Shooting in RAW is the finest...

RAW is like a piece of uncooked steak. You can edit (cook) it with Photoshop RAW until it becomes low jpeg, med jpeg, high jpeg, TIFF or DNG files. You can also add (condiments) such as adjusting Chromatic Abbreviations, lighting adjustment, saturation..etc. Best of all, the final output of this RAW file can be adjusted to 75-350dpi for printing.

Jpeg is like a piece of cooked steak. Once shooting done in Jpeg, it is like a cooked meat, cannot adjust back to RAW, can only do PP in Photoshop which will in turn degrades quality. Jpeg only give you a picture resolution of 75dpi, I think in Canon's Jpeg format.

dpi on a JPEG do not matter except when printing. The real resolution is the number of pixels (pixel width x pixel height).

Sometimes it is wise to shoot jpeg, especially if you have many many images.

Do you want to capture a pix with very saturated colors, or do you want to create a pix with very saturated colors?

Your question asks one thing, and the answers given suggest something else entirely.
