R1 RAW settings for Sony Image Data Coverter
Oct 21, 2007

Hi there,

I purchased a mint second-hand R1 this summer, and now that I am more familiar with the camera I am starting to explore how to exploit its considerable prowess by using RAW, and the accompanying Sony Image Data Converter (SIDC) software.

For now, I would like to get some advice from seasoned users regarding the settings you have found to work better with the R1: sharpening is the first that comes to my mind, but Tone Reproduction will need some mastering sooner or later, among others.

Please note that, even if I have read several times that Noise Reduction is not a "forte" of this software, this is not that much of an issue to me as most of my pictures are taken at low ISO.

Once I have learn how to use this (SIDC) software, I plan to use others (bear in mind that I am a Mac user) to try to get the most from this powerful lens/sensor combination, and I would be glad to hear your suggestions.

Thanks in advance, and keep on enjoying our hobby!

In heaven, an angel is nobody in particular
