I have to deliver straight out of camera jpegs, as i have since day 1 shot RAW this is a new thing to me.
I search around and there seems to be no baseline and i wanted to pass by you my thoughts and want your opinions(all except those that say shoot RAW as its not possible or i wouldn't have asked the question). If possible can you share your settings if shooting indoors etc in jpeg. As i am thinking of creating 2-3 profiles for jpeg shooting in the manage picture control setting. In RAW i know preview on the back always looked fine in STD with +1 to sharpening etc, but i would always have the rest switch off, as i say i used RAW etc only.
I will be shooting under strip lighting at worst case and stage lighting in best case:Active D (normal and low)
+1 ontop of base profile Sharpness
Active D lighting - low/normal - prefer low as its more like what i see in lens, but enough light brought out. Normal is more forgiving in that if i shoot underexposed due to SS limitation etc, use Exp comp instead.
reason:Depending on the scene, shooting conditions, and type of lens, TIFF and JPEG images may exhibit noise (fog) or variations in peripheral brightness
High ISO noise reduction
reason manual statesOff Noise reduction is performed only as required and never at an amount as high as when Low is selected
