Like Archer said no it is not advertise and I don't recommend it, I will not leave it out in the rain again.

This was from yesterday, Suddenly appeared from nowhere while I am taking pictures of the Chickadees in our backyard. I was really surprised. I am about 50 to 60 ft away.

Anytime you see such a significant halo around the bird, you know it's oversharpened. Maybe you should eschew in camera sharpening and do it in post so that you have better control over it.

In camera sharpening is applied by picture styles to the LCD image and JPEGs. Is it applied to the RAW file? I thought picture styles wouldn't apply to RAW.

Depends on the RAW converter being used; I believe DPP does, and Lightroom also does its own, default level of import sharpening unless specifically told not to. Someone who's used DPP can correct me if I'm wrong there.

Yeah nice shots!

I got my lens pretty wet too. I think a rain coat would be best though.
But I've put some of my lenses through some weather without issues, with no weather sealing at all.
Although I try not to.

Thanks Eric, I've been shooting everyday ever since I got it so far I am really happy about it. In Lr once image is downloaded in catalog the default amount of sharpening is at 25. And I think the sharpening with camera apply in jpeg file not raw file, that is why I left it to whatever camera default because I shoot jpegs with my friends /family parties.

I understand that Peter :) My comment on that was a response to Charles' post above.

The full size images do look like you might have gone a little heavy on the Clarity slider, but that shouldn't be a true problem unless you go to print large.

I know you do I am just adding my .2c for what you already said. :) I am also responding to Charles.
I did very little with LR then use dfine2 for NR then tweaked it more with perfect effect 8 that I got it free, my first time using it since I got it a month ago I think.

I still haven't installed PE8, but I did get it downloaded the other day. Will check it out at some point.

Thanks Eric and Peter. I have been using faithful picture style which has no sharpening but it is really hard to see if it is sharp when zoomed in on the LCD. I was thinking about adding just sharpening to a picture style just to help out with that. Eric's comment made me question my thoughts.

Sorry to derail the conversation.

Hi Peter, I checked the larger versions and the PP on these is really extreme. You wouldn't happen to be willing to post the images from the camera would you? I often crop a lot, sometimes at 100%.

Here is the original file. I have no problem if you would like to play with it.

I can't access the exif for most of the shots here -- but it seems to me a higher shutter speed would have helped on quite a few.

Never the less I think they are quite promissing!

RAW files are just that - RAW. No sharpening and no corrections of any kind in camera. Sure, the camera converts the analogue light into digital values and uses all kind of tricks to do this. However, the RAW file on your memory card is as untouched as it gets.

Every RAW processing software demosaics the RAW file first during import, which could be seen as "sharpening". Part of that process is to create a (jpg) file that is displayed on your monitor.
The rest is setup in your software based on your preferences. If you turn everything off you will end up with a rather flat image, thus most if not all "default" values during import are not really 0 as in do nothing.

HTH

Cheers.

Thank you. So far I don't have issues regarding AF with my 7D I tried all combination like in Expansion, center focus point etc no issues these are with AI servo mode.

Thanks. There are those who have declared that the 150-600 AF categorically does not work with the 7D. Nice to know that the Internet rush-to-judgment is alive and well. I am ordering mine next week.:D

I will post this afternoon and I don't mind at all. I do a basic pp in LR then for the first time tried the perfect effect 8 that was on sale last week for free and tweaked it more in that software. If you look in my Flickr account I don't saturate very much, I like my images to be as close to natural look but I am trying this new plug in perfect effect 8 which is nice IMO.

Peter,

I am a huge fan of Perfect Photo Suite, but use Perfect Effects primarily with landscapes. I would be interested to know what Perfect Effects filters, etc. you are using here. It looks great.
