Hi all,

I have a 20D, still a very fine camera.
Now im shooting raw since recent, so i have a question.
Which sharpening setting is best for my 20D in DPP? 3? 4?

The setting depends on the result you want. There is no perfect setting as such, and you will need to look at the output each time. Start with three and see, but do try the "Unsharp Mask" option in the new builds. You will be amazed at what it does.

Also remember that if you sharpen in the RAW tab, and then sharpen in the JPEG tab it adds them both up to give a LOT of sharpening.

The latest DPP is Version 3.10.1 (on a mac anyway)

It also depends on 1) the subject matter, 2) the juggling act between sharpening and high ISO noise and 3) how it looks to you. View the image at 100% when sharpening, play around, and when you get a result that looks good to you then you are done!

If you find a need to go into an external editor like Photoshop/Elements you can put off some sharpening until you are ready to put out a "final product".

Or, if you want to do "output sharpening" in DPP you can first Convert and Save to a proper image size (say for the Web) and then open the new image and apply a final round for the proper size.
