Thread: Whats your Custom Image settings?

    Default Whats your Custom Image settings?

    For me,

    K20D using Vibrant with following adjustments,

    saturation +2
    hue -1
    contrast -2
    fine sharpness +1

    This is my general setting and is pretty accurate most of the time.

    problem is finding a setting for human skin tone. There`s been many times when i am surprised just how far the difference is changed when fixed using image editor. Didnt have this much difficulty back when using film.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    if skin tone is important, i think raw would be best? my 2nd choice would be in portrait mode. colours might be more representative since the hexagon is not skewed unlike vibrant's..

    I ended up sticking with Portrait (all settings neutral), since I will do fast PP when reviewing my photos anyway.
    I find it odd that you have +2 saturation. Usually I find saturation is wonderful for Pentax and its the least I need to increase during PP.
    Ok, Hue -1, will make it cooler, which I sometimes finds Pentax is on the warm side.
    I can't seem to get enough contrast, but I find its way better to tweak during PP as there is no 1 setting fit all.
    Sharpness, I've never made a comparison how good/bad in camera sharpness is. Just like to have the finer control during PP to look out for final effect and noise.
