Testing the Expressive Power of “Fine Detail”

The EOS 5DS has adopted a new Picture Style, ”Fine Detail”. Compared to other Picture Style effects, ”Fine Detail” is suitable for more delicate depiction. In this article, I carried out a still photo shoot in a studio to test the effect of the ”Fine Detail” Picture Style.

Excels not only in detailed depiction, but colour reproduction too

In this example, I made use of “Fine Detail”, a new Picture Style effect introduced for the first time on the EOS 5DS, to capture some ground cherries. I fired a strong flash against a black background. Let’s take a look at the extent to which “Fine Detail” is able to reproduce the fine leaf veins and vivid colour under the high contrast.

I captured some ground cherries with very fine leaf veins. “Fine Detail” was able to reproduce the colours faithfully and express the minute details clearly.
