one often reads that it is better not to have any sharpening,colour saturation etc,etc set in the camera but to rather set these profiles in Photoshop ACR.This obviously only applies to when you are shooting in RAW mode.
My ?uestion is why does it make a difference if say you were shooting at "level 5" sharpening because you could just turn this off again in pp.Same with saturation etc.
What am i missing here?
Thanks for any replies

Re: Raw Shooting
first, some cameras allow you to turn off sharpening if jpeg as well, also colour adjustment settings can be changed in-camera.
you cannot turn-off effects that have been applied in-camera to the jpeg. They are there. you can only apply more effects to make it look like the effects have been reversed. however that means you are altering the pixels in the jpeg and hence you degrade the jpeg.
