Adobe ACR Sharpening for Nikon D3
Dec 22, 2012

I am a Nikon D3 shooter and would feedback and opinion on post-processing Nikon NEF files, specifically ACRs sharpening settings for an overall best result.

I mainly shoot mixed martial arts (MMA) RAW at f/2.8 (24-70mm) in the ISO 800-1600 ballpark and 500+ shutter speed.

My workflow is Bridge and ACR only, no post-processing in Photoshop or Lightroom. As a result (I theorize) of ACR only, my images lack tack sharp quality. I went the Bridge & ACR only route to save time. Now I'm wondering if I should begin post-processing in Lightroom to apply sharpening not available in ACR.

For my fellow D3 shooters, what are your ACR settings, sharpening and luminance? For the record, my ACR is 7.3.

I can't be the only one who performs 100% post-processing in ACR. Is this too simple of an approach to expect stunning results?

If anyone is willing to share, attach (or email) your xmp settings file.
