Auto HDR and Zero Sharpness December 2012, Carl Garrard
Even though I think that Sony can improve the Jpeg engine in the A57,
there remains a scenario where I still will allow out of camera Jpegs
to be used. As the title of this article implies, I like to set my A57
for zero sharpness when using the Jpeg engine, and, use BASE ISO (as much as possible) along
with HDR. In a way the Jpegs are three times better than a
standard Jpeg considering there is a stack of 3 together into one.
Sharpening out of camera, means you control that process almost
completely yourself (as the OOC Jpegs at -3 sharpness are very soft
indeed and look nearly untouched as seen below).
