My Merrill and Quattro cameras where all set to -1.0 since the default sharpening is very high and introduces halo artofacts in the JPEG files

Is it something only visible when JPEG out of camera is used?


I am not seeing sharpness artifacts when saving a JPEG out of SPP.

I agree that review images are over-sharpened by SPP with Merrills. All my Merrills showed an overshoot in QuickMTF edge response at 0.0 sharpening. Testing raw, JPEG, TIFF showed almost no over-shoot at about -1.0.

Also, in Merrill low-res, 0.0 was quite acceptable for shrubbery and rolling hills to my eye.

was it tested with de-noising for chroma, luma and banding set on "normal" or medium (3) for all MTF tests?

Testing was on SPP 5.5.3 - default settings except sharpness - there is no "banding" control in 5.5.3.

What happens to MTf response when those values are changed? Just curious about what those sliders do to the MTF.

I have no idea but, in general, de-noising anything usually applies some form of smoothing which would reduce the edge response.
