Ok all, I'm stilling learning the functions of my 20D but I do have a question. What "parameter" setting do you use most for your outdoor shoots? Or, do you keep you camera set to "Parameter 1" or "Parameter 2" for everything?

Factory settings for me too. I'd rather sharpen/saturate..etc in post editing.

I got these settings from a 4 day glamour course I did in Sydney, Australia last year just before the 20d came out.

The studio supplied Canon 10d's and had these parameters.
Saturation +2
Sharpness -1
Contrast +1
Tone +1

The Sharpness -1 seemed a bit confusing, I like my images to look sharp, but the end result is OK.
I shot in RAW with standard parameters and applied these settings to a number of questionable photos when converting and they seemed to improve.

My 20d is away being repaired [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] So I can't offer any advice on using these settings on a 20d.

I usually shoot jpeg. RAW is too slow when shooting models.

Saturation +2
sharpness +1
everything else +0

I then use DPP to make quick brightness & contrast adjustments. Then Paintshop Pro for highlights/shadow, cropping, sometimes to warm up the white balance a bit, and adding copyright.

How does the 20D end up being too slow to shoot models in the RAW mode. I have shot tons of models with the 20D over the last 6 months and I shoot mostly RAW. Even if I try, its hard to take more than 1 shot every 2 or 3 seconds and the 20D can do a burst of 6 RAW photos. Of course, in studio, allowing for recyle times of flash, it would be almost impossible to shoot more than 1 shot every 1 second which still would not get to the burst limit. What are you doing to find it too slow to use RAW?
Cheers,
rfs

My previous camera was a Canon Digital Rebel. It had a 4 photo Raw buffer that was clearly too slow. I now have a Canon 20D. It is a lot faster than the Digital Rebel. I however, don't think that a 6 photo Raw buffer is still enough for some of the fast shooting that I sometimes do. With my strobes, I can shoot pretty quick, a lot quicker than 2 shots per second.

Doesn't that mean the strobes have to recycle in less than .5 seconds. For most studio strobes that is the very fastest they will recycle. And I've often found that if one shoots right at the minimum recycle time that one gets inconsistent exposures because in some cases the flash really hasn't recycle to full power. Do you find any inconsistency in exposures at the speeds you are talking about?
