There are many canon picture styles, officially shipped with canon gears are: standard, landscape, neutral, faithful, neutral, monochrome, while canon also release others to be downloaded such as: twilight, nostalgia, studio portrait, snapshot portrait, emerald, clear, autumn hues. This writting specifically focuses on faithful and neutral picture style.
What is the difference?

Accurate recording of the subject’s color, close to the actual image seen with the naked eye
The “Faithful” setting enables reproduction of images that are colorimetrically almost identical to the actual colors shot under standard daylight conditions.
By maintaining the colors of the subject, the colors remain true even in highlight areas, so the expression of the colors is strong, giving a reliable impression that is close to what is seen with the naked eye. The colors are absolutely true to life, ensuring faithful reproduction—no matter how sober or vivid.
This setting is also suitable for replicating existing photographs and product photography, where the original colors must be accurately expressed.
Technique: Use the “Faithful” Picture Style to reproduce subjects as they actually appear
Subjects are recorded in rich detail, giving the greatest latitude for image processing
The “Neutral“ setting is suitable for expressing subtle nuances within vivid colors, even for objects with considerable contrast, when wishing to convey delicate textures.
Contrast and saturation settings are moderated, so there is less risk of overexposure and color saturation compared to other styles, resulting in a more restrained and calmer expression.
Richer detail is retained as data, so corrections can easily be rendered using Digital Photo Professional or Adobe® Photoshop®, etc. for JPEG output as well.
Technique: “Neutral” Picture Style for more detail.
