Joms ... comparison request
Mar 31, 2013

Can you do me a favor ....

Take a US one dollar bill ..... Not a brand spanking new one... but not a ragged one either.

Iron it flat.

Tape it to a wall in a well lit room.. with the back side of the dollar bill facing you.

Tripod your camera.... set to max zoom and frame the shot so the full width of the dollar is framed with little to no cut off.

Set your cam to ISO 100.... Noise reduction to normal .... in-camera sharpening set to the middle of your scale ..... in other words.. not full max ... not zero.

Use what ever aperture you need to take full advantage of the lenses resolving power. In my case, it will be wide open.

Contrast / Saturation set to Neutral

Full Res (L Size)

Then take an identical shot, with your in-camera sharpening to 1 notch below full max.

Post both straight out of cam shots

THEN. one of the two shots of your choice... post process it to your liking to maximize detail, and post that one as the third shot.

I will do the same tomorrow.

Thanks in advance.
