Brothers and Sisters of the Holy Order of the Black Scarf,

As many of us use the fabled black scarf of Wally World to diffuse our images, Is there a way to boost contrast in the 10D to compensate?

I was shooting with a scarf over 80-200 2.8 set @ 5.6 and 8 in my studio. Lighting was by soft box. I had to go into PhotoShop 6 and raise the contrast on 150 images one by one.

Is there a way to boost this in camera?

same as the D60, yes

menu/parameters/set up

4 choices - contrast, sharpnes, saturation and color tone

just set it up like you want and assign it to one of the sets for quick use next time

There are many approaches. Assuming all of the photos were shot with the same lighting setup, then just create an action while setting the contrast for the first photo. Then play that action against all the rest of the photos using the automate menu.
You can also increase the contrast directly from the 10D, but I don't like to do it there, since, then it is hardwired into the image.
Cheers,
Roger

I shoot all my "real" photography with the 10D set to RAW, giving me full control after-the-fact if needed. Albiet the application is a bit slow, you can tweak the contrast for multiple images at once (in thumbnail mode) with the Canon File Viewer utility and then batch-convert them to the file format of choice.

And, of course, the prior info on setting within the camera works as well.

Adobe Raw is the way to go in my book. Your raw image is protected and you can tweak just about everything before you get it into photoshop. I think, not sure, you have to have photoshop 7 to use adobe raw. Otherwise, setup an action or increase the sharpness in your camera...this will enhance edge detail without messing with your default contrast. Also, you can adjust the level of effect from the scarf by using different Fstops. One thing you have to reconcile yourself to is that the scarf permanently alters your image so you need to understand whether you are correcting the effects of the scarf or enhancing the image delivered by the scarf when you get into photoshop...later, Hugh

Adobe RAW does not support the 10D yet. The best RAW converter available for the 10D is Capture One DSLR Limited Edition v1.2, $99 from Phase One. About as much control of your electronic "darkroom" as you will need.

mass contrast, exposure and other adjustments.

Shoot RAW and go download phase one dslr le. Try it for 15 days.
web page
It only works with raw files ( the hidden beauty of digital cameras- Raw files, and post shoot adjustments to exposure, grey balance, noise reduction to name a few.... )

this program kicks ass. The cool things is, you can set up a group of files that are similar in exposure, and then you can tune one, and batch process the rest.

Canons raw converter doesnt work real time, so it is slow and it sucks.

Look for an article im gonna write on it.
