Lower sharpening on the A610

    Looking through the manual I found in the photo effects settings a low
    sharpening setting. I looked through the manual when I got the camera last
    year, but missed that one. Up until now, I thought I had no in camera
    control over sharpening. Taking a couple shots of the same subject, I find
    the LS setting does not harm resolution one bit, but just cuts back on the
    ugly sharpening halos. To me, this makes the images look more natural. This
    with 2/3 under exposure dialed in, I have the camera taking great pictures

    Thanks for the info.
    I'll check that on my wife's 610 (not that she would care one wit...).

    I shot some scenics today and I notice less halo around tree branches.
    Sharpening done right can look nice, but the radius needed to sharpen images
    from Bayer sensors cause a video like appearance if it is too heavy handed.
    Sharpening of this type does not actually add resolution to the image

    On my Digital Rebel, The default sharpening was also a bit aggressive, so I
    set my own parameter with sharpness kept flat. I'd go even lower but the kit
    lens, not being so sharp, helped keep the halos down : )
