RX100 Jpg creative styles - VIVID vs STD quick compare

RX100 jpeg shooters, I was playing around with the differences between STANDARD and VIVID Creative Styles and am posting a few for anyone interested. Did not experiment with the sub-settings (contrast, saturation, sharpness) much other than what I wanted to try. Just a few shots to give a general idea.
Also, as someone else had mentioned, Vivid sets a different color profile so Greens (and yellows it appears) are more pronounced, though not realistic.

All images are straight OOC jpegs. 20MP (8MB) originals available in gallery, untouched/unresized. Shot in bright mid-day sun.

As for which is most accurate, hard to say because my monitor is not calibrated, but if I had to guess, reality would be somewhere between standard and vivid.

style settings are listed below each image.

STANDARD default: Cntrst0 Satur0 Sharp0

STANDARD custom: Cntrst0 Satur+1 Sharp+1

[above] VIVID custom - Cntrst-2 Satur-2 Sharp+1

[above] VIVID default - Cntrst0 Satur0 Sharp0

Hope this helps.

Sony RX100
