Re: Great shots...

Thanks for the positive comments.

1. You can find JB's .atn download here at the bottom of the page:


2. Only use Av as I tend to shoot with the lens wide open. Use M for external flash.

3. Partial metering with centre point AF.

Hi John,

Great pictures...
1. Where did you get JBs Custome Smart Sharpen? I tried to google
it but didn't have any luck.
2. What mode did you use to take these pictures (Av, Tv, M)?
3. What metering mode did you use?

Glad you liked the pix. I know you are not happy with the softness
on yours. so I hope you get that sorted.

I used DPP and normally use the default setting, only increasing or
decreasing the exposure by a little if required. In PS I add some
sharpening and currently use JBs Custom Smart Sharpen which I found
long ago on the web. With the 400D and an L lens, compared to the
350D, I find I can apply much more sharpening without getting halos
or artifacts.

Hope that helps!
