For anyone shooting video that's still reading this thread:

IMO, the best settings are +3 for sharpness unless you plan on grading your footage in post. The a99 gets nice and crisp with sharpness wide open. It looks differently than having +3 in jpg mode; the 2.07 megapixel for video looks almost as if it were meant for +3. Try it, you'll like it!

Shield, I find your suggestion surprising. I usually use zero sharpening if not -1, profile: neutral and contrast zero if not -1. I do this to avoid moire issues that MIGHT come up in video shooting. It is easier to sharpen the video afterwards than to remove moire or sharpening artifacts.

Stef.
