All photos undergo manipulation. A documentary type photo is one that closely matches what most people see, but it’s not unprocessed.
In the analog/film world, different films will give different results. So too exposure, and development of the film. This is followed by additional processing/manipulation in order to present the image as a print or on a display.
While digital lends itself to even greater alteration if desired, it still undergoes equivalent, although different, processing to produce an image. Most digital camera have several builtin modes that are roughly like choosing a different film. You can have high saturation colors, or low contrast, or high dynamic range, or many others.
Most digital cameras can be set to a mode that reasonably matches what you see most of the time.
No camera, digital or film, will always produce what you want. That’s where Art and Skill come into play.
