I find with almost all my photos on my 7D I add a little saturation, contrast as well as sharpening.*
For ease of processing I mainly shoot in jpeg, unless I’m in a tricky situation and know it’s going to require major PP.

Is it a bad idea to do these adjustments in-camera with the user pictures styles?

It's only "bad" if you get it wrong because you can't undo it if you shoot in JPG.

If you shoot raw, it's fine as the PictureStyle is just a "tag" to instruct DPP in how to initially process the raw data (as well as being used to create the embedded JPG preview that is shown on the LCD screen)


First off, your camera ONLY shoots RAW. When you select JPG, the camera takes the RAW data and pipes it into its on-board JPG processor to generate the JPG "image" to save to the card.

When you shoot RAW, the RAW "data" goes directly to the card and is not an image.

To generate an image, you use a RAW processor (software on your PC) which turns the data into a viewable image, much like the camera's JPG processor. The difference is that YOU have complete control over the image generation process. You can change the white balance, adjust the contrast/brightness/bl​ack point/etc....

So you can leave these decisions up to the camera's little processor (and hope it makes the right decisions since they are irreversible), or save the decisions for later where YOU have complete control over it.
