Olympus C-8080 Wide Zoom Review
The C-8080 Wide Zoom provides control over sharpness, contrast, hue and color saturation. As with previous prosumer level Olympus digital cameras each of these parameters has a wide range of adjustment in a total of eleven steps from -5 to +5. In addition you can also fine tune white balance by fifteen steps from -7 to +7. Kudos Olympus.
Having a wide range of sharpening adjustment with a subtle set of steps from -5 to +5 allows the photographer to pick a very slightly softer setting (such as -1 or -2) to avoid sharpening artifacts but still maintain detail.
|Sharpness: -5||Sharpness: 0|
Adjusting the tone alters the shape of the 'S curve' used to map the linear image data captured by the sensor into the correct gamma. A lower contrast setting maintains more of the original data's dynamic range but leads to a flatter looking image. A higher contrast setting stretches the grayscale (dark to light) of the image and could lead to clipping of both shadow detail and highlights.
The hue adjustment setting allows you to make some subtle changes to the hue output of the image, it is useful for compensation of hue shifts caused by certain artificial light. A negative hue setting shifts towards blue (eg. red towards purple), a positive hue setting shifts towards yellow (eg. red towards orange).
Saturation adjustment allows you to control the strength of color in the final image. Although the C-8080 provides a wide range of adjustment for this setting it doesn't appear to affect saturation too greatly.
