Image parameters (contd.)

Sharpness

The sharpness setting of zero appears to mean 'apply no sharpening at all', hence this is the image as captured (soft because of the anti-alias filter). The default setting for Standard Picture Style is 3 and 4 for Landscape. Anything above this makes the appearance of sharpening artefacts likely.

Sharpness: 1
Sharpness: 2 (Portrait default)
