Re: X10 LR4 RAW to JPEG comparisons (New sensor, firmware 2.0)

The last shot is especially telling, to me at least.

Lately I have been shooting my X10 (original sensor, firmware 2.0) with noise reduction set low, and minimum sharpness. The JPGs are more workable in post-processing that way (I haven't been using RAW).

With minimum sharpness I can sharpen later without haloes in Photoshop Elements. With noise reduction set to low I can preserve more detail, and I don't mind the grain as much as loss of detail.

With sharpness set to zero (normal middle of the range setting) I cannot sharpen in post processing without seeing haloes.
