View Full Version : S1 IS Parameter/Effect Setting
23rd of January 2005 (Sun), 08:06
...just wondering what others have found to be the best parameter settings for the best final results. I'm not concerned with out-of-camera results at all because all images are processed in PSCS anyway. What have you found to be the optimal settings? I would guess it to be No Effect at all. I shoot with Zero in-camera processing on my 10D. The S1 is my wife's camera and I don't have time to compare the settings, but would like to offer her suggestions.

After experimenting I just decided to leave it at default. Who would've guessed? Canon guys actually knew their "what" and "why" when they set them.
Works for printing of stuff up to 8*10

By default, I'm assuming that you mean, no effect...(I think thats what its called on that camera) Anything out of the ordinary or maybe specific to this camera that you add to the typical processing workflow then once the files are on your PC? ...anything different than the normal, levels, curves, crop, USM adjustments?

Hi there....how is your wife getting along with the camera? I am getting used to mine as well. One thing i really notice with this camera is......the "display screen" images appear darker then the "actual recorded image"
I am getting great shots.....waiting for spring to arrive cause there is nothing left in the house I havent taken a pic of
I use "no effect" most often....low sharpening sometimes too..
I like to have the original image and play with effects in the photoshop.

Have you tried adjusting the brightness of the LCD panel? Even with it adjusted correctly, the LCD's are just not good enough to give an accurate representation of the exposure. You should always judge exposure with the histogram.
My wife is liking hers. She hasn't used it extensively, but she's starting to get used to the digital workflow.

yes I have figured out how to adjust the screen brightness....I am starting to figure out most of the settings:rolleyes:
I spend alot of time reading the "manuel"
My original purpose for buying the camera was to capture "portrait" pics that I could later paint. I am trying to take most of my pics in manuel mode using what light is available(no flash). Mostly people shots at this point. The cat runs for the hills now when she sees me coming. The people are starting to run now too.
I went out last night to take pics of ice sculptures. It was freezing and all my shots were blurry from shaking...even with the IS on.....
Would you mind if I asked you the occasional newbie question?

No, I don't mind at all. I'd be happy to answer anything I can...and if I can't someone else here most definitely can! :) Ask away. Some will disagree, but I would recommend that you keep shooting in manual mode only. Force yourself to learn how shutter speed, aperture, ISO interact in order to get the exposure and effect that you want. Occassionaly, you should also put the camera on full-auto and see what settings the camera chooses...then switch back to M and see how you can make the same image different by altering those settings.
