Picture control

Hi everyone, I'm interested in seeing what you guys do with your picture control settings. Not sure what it's referred to in Canon world but for Nikon users the picture control settings are Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape.

I shoot RAW, so I leave mine in Standard and change if needed during edit.

My real question is this... within the control, you can tweek sharpness, saturation, contrast ect... I have mine set to the default settings. Do you guys tweek that in camera, or adjust in post?

I use neutral. I use it as my starting point, I tried the others but I feel that neutral is a middle point that lets me go either way in post production.

I leave mine standard and left everything in default... all edits are done purely on post.

I have a tweaked Neutral setup in mine. Since you're shooting RAW like the rest of us, the only thing that preset is for is the .JPG preview on the back of the camera. When you open in LR, nothing is used. It's the base RAW file with the LR defaults that you have set.

Nice info, Scott! I didn't even realize that it just affects JPEGs and how LR reverts back to base RAW. Always great to learn something new. Thanks for that share! :)

I agree. That info is excellent. And makes perfect sense. Thanks Scott.

I think that White Balance is the only thing that is actually affected if you're shooting RAW. And that can be changed with greater flexibility in RAW anyway. This includes Active D-Lighting. Unless you're using CaptureNX from Nikon, Active D-Lighting does nothing either. Only for .JPGs.

I use the standard setting, but I have noticed that in the standard default it uses a sharpening setting of 3, not sure why.
