Image parameters (contd.)

Color saturation adjustment

Saturation adjustment allows you to control the strength of color in the final image. At the -4 setting you get quite a muted color response but this could be useful for post-processing, anything above +2 can lead to color channel clipping. Each step produces an approximate 3% change in saturation, hence +4 = +12%.

Color tone adjustment (hue)

Color tone subtly adjusts the hue of the image, a negative setting makes red tones appear more blue/purple, a positive setting makes them appear more yellowish. Each step equates to an approximate 4% hue shift, hence +4 = +16° hue shift.

The 30D had a 50 mm lens and the 5D had an 85mm lens and that could account for the difference in reading the globe etc.

Not really, the 5D is Fullframe, (x1.0 crop) whereas the 30D is Canon APS-C, and therefore with x1.6 crop - so the 50mm Lens behave itself like a 80mm lens compared to full frame, which is close to the 85mm Portrait focal lens onto the FF 5D.
