I just saw Martha Stewart's new daily programme (as distinct from the Apprentice series). The image appears to be rather soft. Is this just the television I was watching or are they using something on the lens to soften the image and, if so, does anyone know what they are using?

My wife Tivo's that show. It looks like some Promist filter action. Like those old Liz Taylor perfume adverts only not quite so industrial-strength.

Thanks.

Far be it for me to question Martha Stewart and her producers, who undoubtedly know what "look" will sell to her audience, but to me the show's pastel colour palette combined with the distinctly soft visuals gives the show a mushy look that I do not find in the least appealing. Maybe I've been conditioned to expect a harder look in programming shot on video.
