Lightroom 4 sharpening settings for Olympus OMD?


Can anyone recommend or share suitable sharpening and noise reduction settings for lightroom 4 for the OMD em5 at various ISOs?

I typically use the following

Amount 25

Radius 1.0

Detail 25

Masking (depends on image, typically > 50)

For Noise Reduction

Luminance 25

Detail 50

Contrast 50

Colour 25

Detail 50

At ISO 200, sometimes Luminance can be set to 0, but colour needs to be 25.

Re: Lightroom 4 sharpening settings for Olympus OMD?

Sharpening and NR depend on the scene and other conditions, even if taken with the same ISO. For example, a portrait would not have the same settings as a landscape. If you want reasonable defaults, see LR's starting point and try the faces and scenic sharpening presets (under presets - LR general presets).

Playing to see what looks best is the way to use LR.

There are a lot of tutorials out there on the subject.
