How to Choose Canon Picture Styles?
Selecting a Picture Style just as you would choose a film type, the right picture style allows you to create exactly the image you want.
There are 6 different preinstalled Picture Styles to choose from: Standard, Portrait, Landscape, Neutral, Faithful and Monochrome. Each of these Picture Styles emphasises certain colours more or less than others. For example, Portrait Picture Style makes skin tones more rosy, Landscape overlays a slightly orange-brown overtone whilst Neutral gives the most accurate colours.
Each Picture Style has four adjustment parameters:
The “Standard” Picture Style is set to produce the vivid colors and contrast level that people tend to prefer for general photographic subjects. It provides the optimal sharpness for printing image without post-processing and makes it possible to produce beautifully finished prints for a broad array of subjects, from snapshots to sports shooting, with no retouch.
The “Standard” Picture Style is the default Picture Style setting for all present EOS DIGITAL lineups. Color uniformity is ensured, even if the model changes.
People are one of the most difficult subject to reproduce photographically because skin color can vary significantly depending on lighting conditions and exposure balance. The “Portrait” Picture Style adjusts the color tone magenta-to-yellow close to red range and adds brightness. Skin color is reproduced light pink with still the correct exposure. It is particularly well-suited for shooting women and children. To keep the soft and natural feeling of skin, sharpness is set modestly.
In photographic expression, deep blue sky and vibrant green leaves call for more vivid colors than in reality, for more impressive finish. The “Landscape” Picture Style changes the color respectively; blue to a vivid and deep color, green to a vivid and bright color.
This style also uses a stronger sharpness setting to bring out details in mountains, trees, buildings, and other things in the distance. A moving sight can be expressed in the strong impressive finish.
