Hello everyone,

Ive been working with this camera for a while in sRGB, which works fine. I am curious if anyone uses the custom settings for sharpness, saturation, contrast, and color tone. Are there any settings that you find particularly suitable to this line of photography? Thanks in advance, Austin

If I'm shooting pictures of people, I set the contrast to -1. This helps keep the details from blowing out.

If I'm outdoors, I set the color saturation to +1 if it's sunny, and +2 if it's overcast or shade.

I was hoping to see more responses to this thread as I myself would like to know what parameter settings most of the pro's use.

All I've seen on the subject so far is below.

This paragraph is from Steves Digital Camera Reviews, for the Digital Rebel, which is what I have.
"Parameters (default is Parameter 1):
Parameter 1 (Contrast +1, Saturation +1, Sharpness +1) this setting will produce images more like consumer digicams with sharper, more saturated colors
Parameter 2 (Contrast 0, Saturation 0, Sharpness 0) this setting emulates the default setting of the EOS 10D
Adobe RGB for those who will edit images with Photoshop
One of 3 custom sets see the next frame for details"

Here's a link that has some info for newbees like myself.
http://dpfwiw.com/exposure.htm

This one talks about in-camera sharpening.
http://dpfwiw.com/exposure.htm#sharpening

From what I have read sharpening is the last thing you should do in post processing.

Anyway, I'll be looking for more responses to this. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

The most important custom function settings on the 10d IMHO

CFN 2 to 1... will not shoot without a CF card
CFN 4 to 1... moves the focus from the shutter to the *... needed when working in the studio with modeling lamps.

Everything else changes depending on the desired results.

While we're on the subject of Custom Functions (as opposed to image parameter settings),

CF06 - 1 1/3 stop increments
CF14 - 1 disable automatic fill-flash reduction

Sports Illustrated has excellent suggestions for camera settings for Canon and Nikon digital SLRs.

I leave all these settings a 0. Why? The computer inside the camera is no where as smart as the desktop computer I'm using. Besides, if you shoot RAW, as most do, then it isn't applying the settings anyway. If you shoot JPEG, then you'll get better results making these adjustments in Photoshop.
Cheers,
