Should default 10d settings be at -2 for best effect for CW

Postby richfei » Mon Mar 01, 2004 3:24 am

Hi,

A few questions

1) In order to maximize the benefit from Colorwasher and Focalblade, should the default settings for sharpening, contrast, saturation and color tone be set at -2 on a Canon 10d i.e turned off completely or will CW and FB benefit from a different setting ?

2) Sometimes when I use Focalblade in novice mode and use it to sharpen a portrait, I notice that the hair has jaggies and looks as though it's lightened. How can this be avoided with the rest of the image being left pretty sharp ?

3) Since RAW shooting allows the white balance to be changed, Exposure compensation to be changed amongst other things, if Colorwasher and Focalblade is being used in an optimal fashion, is there still a need to be shooting in RAW ? I only ask this question since I see references in this forum for CW and FB to work in 16 bit mode. So I'm assuming yes, RAW will provide other benefits other than sharpening, color correction, contrast adjustment etc

Thanks
