Image parameters (contd.)

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.

Color tone (hue) adjustment

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.

As I know when the original 5D debuted three years ago, it wasn't clear why most enthusiasts would want such a camera. Though it captured excellent, high resolution images, it was slower and bigger and more expensive. Today the market has changed significantly, and it's clear that the market is ready for full-frame digital SLRs that can turn out high image quality. High quality is one thing, but being a camera that can deliver high quality over a wide range of lighting conditions and different ISO settings is what makes the Canon 5D Mark II such a compelling choice, and a clear Dave's Picks.
It's really very very good.
