    Hi all,

    Thought this link would be of interest to most of you and it should since we should all be checking our histograms for exposure info.

    http://www.oceanlight.com/log/optimal-contrast-and-saturation-settings-for-raw-photographers.html

    I tried this out and yes, there is a definite difference to the histogram when the Saturation and Contrast was altered. It also get it closer to what my RAW file appears to be.

    There have been arguments that this do not hold true for alot of bodies meaning the histogram will show the RAW file values but my camera has shown otherwise. Thus it may be essential for you to try out before determining anything.

    Cheers

    Han

    Hi Han
    Great info.
    Newbie question: How do you do the necessary JPEG adjustments in canon cameras?
    Thanks.

    Cheers

    Exposing to the right for max details sounds good but wonder are the colours accurately captured with such a doctrine?
    Anyway, very interesting point made by the author…will try it out.

    Loong Tat,

    For jpegs, you can set them in the Picture Styles Menu which you can customise to your liking.
    For RAW files, you can apply them during Post Processing, just like White Balance.

    Cheers

    Han
