But for important "work" (or to impress people ), I usually do some additional post-processing to make a good picture even better.
    dear mpenza,

    i find user111's posts most unnecessarily rude and ignorant. please take note, thank you.

    enyu, as much as you enjoy taking pictures, i hope you'll learn to enjoy post processing your pictures as well. 'apparently' depending on individuals it might not be a necessary thing to do. but i would say that those who reject post processing as being part of the process in photography are rejecting possibilities, possibilities to produce better works, and possibilities to create beyond the limitations of physical equipment.

    you can choose to fight an illusionary Enemy and continue to mislead the threadstarter, that's your choice. but i hope you can keep your ignorance to yourself.

    Hi all, please keep your conversation civil, and refrain from name callings. User111, we are not interested in guessing who's the E. So let's drop it and move on with something more constructive for the thread starter.

    Thank you.

    it's all about control... dslrs are higher end, more expensive cameras than the usual point and shoot. i guess the idea is that for someone who is willing to spend that much on a camera, they also want to have the maximum control of their images.

    the chips in dslrs are not as powerful as a computer running photoshop, with a human brain behind it. if you think about it that way, the camera that gives you the most control is one that does the least processing.

    also, what people like to see in a picture is subjective. different people want their pictures to have a different "look", so a one size fit all approach to in-camera processing will never please everyone.

    that said, we have to balance that with the fact post-processing does take up time, and not everyone can do it better than the camera can. the ideal compromise is to have a camera that produces reasonable sharpness, colour and contrast straight out of the box for the average user, but have many many tweakable settings that will satisfy more demanding users.

    Totally agree with eikin. There'll always be two schools of thought concerning post-processing.

    Explore the possibilities and then you'll be in a better position to decide for yourself.

    in the past when i was using my 1D, i tweaked some settings and loaded a custom curve. and truly enough, i really enjoyed 99% correction free pictures straight out from the camera itself

    and there is no need to be so sarcastic as to post the roll-eyes icon to dismiss the threadstarter's ideas.
    i was referring to the custom curve part, pardon me but i haven't handle a 1D enough to know what it really is, so where's the misread?

    i guess its because you have not handled a 1D enough.
    no mis read then.

    well, he does it before his shots are taken, and he's happy with the results, what's wrong?

    i've explained it before, custom curve is a form of post processing, the process is incorporated inside the camera AFTER the picture is taken. this ONLY saves the user time because he/she doesn't need to put that curve on every picture using a software on a PC.

    if there's a problem, it's not on my side, look who's starting to make trouble?

    huh? what are you talking about? the only poster who is rude here is user111. you are not reading the thread in entirety, which might be a good thing since so much time has been wasted trying to deal with rude behaviour.
