Indeed. Very helpful. Thank you, and Happy New Year!

I started using Highlight Tone -2 yesterday and like the results when shooting outdoors. Can you share some of your other in-camera jpeg settings? Specifically, I'm curious about your sharpness and dynamic range settings.


I turn off my DR (set it to 100%, which is a misnomer) and +1 on color along with the -2 on H Tone and -1 on S Tone.  I keep sharpness at 0 and prefer to sharpen in PS using luminance sharpening.  I also keep my WB at auto and make adjustments if necessary (nighttime snowscapes with funky street lighting) using Adobe RAW (do you all realize that you can open a JPEG in Adobe RAW?).

I will be writing an article about DR and the tone settings soon.  Check my blog in the next few days.
