General rule for "image settings"
on Oct 21, 2010 at 12:01:26 pm

All DSLRS have have image settings that I've generally ignored because in still photography they don't affect the RAW image. These include:

White Balance
Picture Mode (Normal, Potrait, Vivid, Muted etc.)
Contrast
Saturation
Noise filtration/noise reduction
Sharpening

I've already learned that sharpening should be turned down as much as possible. How about the others...is there a rule of thumb that you use as a starting point that allows for easy post processing?

You should Google HD DSLR gurus like Vincent Laforet and Shane Hurlbut to get specific setting ideas - Vincent has published his camera "formula" for more cinematic video several times - here's a link to a video to get you started but there are many more resources to be found via Google




Oh and let's not forget the master Philip Bloom - he has a DVD out showing his specific settings. Stu Maschwitz - another great resource for you - has this:
