In a document on Canon's website, it describes the recomended starting point for sharpening files for a 1DS III (when shooting Raw). Unfortunatly, it lists PS Unsharp Mask, so does anyone know how these settings would translate to the sliders in Camera Raw ?
From the document "EOS1D_1DsMark_IIIoptimizingAFsettings_Final.pdf" from canon's USA site.
• RAW shooters are advised to apply sharpening in the computer (Photoshop’s Unsharp Mask command, or similar processes)
• Low ISO initial Unsharp Mask suggestion — Amount 250%, Radius 0.3~0.5 pixels, Threshold 1
• High ISO initial Unsharp Mask suggestion — Amount 250%, Radius 0.3 pixels, Threshold 4~5
What I need is,
Amount, Radius, Detail, Masking - as they apply in CR.
There is an entire discussion elsewhere on this Board about NR and Sharpening high ISO G9. Does anyone have any similar recomended 'standard' settings for a 5D and Mk III ?.
I am aware all digital files need capture sharpening, (especially to counter the AA filter) and till now I have used Photokit in CS3. However after going through the book "RWCR" and the Video, I'd like to do it in Camera Raw.
My Intention here is to get the best 'Baseline' out of the camera's, then season to taste, but I'm struggling to find the initial baseline. (In any kind of scientific manner).
All thoughts appreciated.
