    Lightroom settings

    I just got my 850, I just love this camera. Curious what seems to be the standard in lightroom3 for your settings for the 850 ARW files

    Re: Lightroom settings

    FWIW:

    Exposure 0
    Recovery 0
    Fill light 0
    Blacks 2
    Brightness 35
    Contrast 20
    Clarity 10
    Vibrance 10
    Medium contrast curve
    Luminance noise reduction 8
    Rest all at default from Lightroom install.

    This serves me well as a starting point, but I still tweak every picture individually after import

    Re: Lightroom settings

    I don't use Lightroom/ACR anymore (C1 now). I generally like to zero everything (regardless of converter) and work each image individually until I'm happy. Along the way you may find that some settings become common and deserve to have a preset. The only one I can recommend with 100% certainty is a slight contrast curve (two points input/output: 20/15 and 80/80 in photoshop and C1 don't know what the equivalent in LR are).

    Hope that helps some.

    Cheers,
    Simon

    Working with the E-5, I start with this too excepting Brightness=0 and Contrast=0. I also set up the Detail sharpening settings with a heavy mask to begin with ... 77 as a default ... and back it off as needed. LR's standard default seems a little heavy handed for the E-5 and tends to exaggerate grain structure, these settings allow expression of the full dynamic range the camera can capture.

    Same might be true for the A850, worth experimenting with.
