Re: Who is at fault for the waxy skin tones?

This is a greatly exaggerated issue, IMHO, that only really becomes noticeable at ISO 6400. It can be mitigated by setting NR to -2, Sharpness -2. Yes, I wish there was a lower NR number. Honestly, most people prefer the "waxy" look to what their real skin looks like.

I have posted selfies to demonstrate how much settings make a difference and how it does not effect RAW's. Most professionals will shoot RAW at high ISO's so it is even less of an issue. I can remember when no one would consider trying to sell a picture shot at ISO 6400. Now we get pretty darn good results. Amazing, if you ask me.
