Canon XS setting .

Hi,
I'm new to Camera and need to know how to set up.
Most of the time I love to shoot portrait and Lanscape but my image quality is not so good as I've seen someone posted in this site .

Here what I'm setting for my XS : Shoot RAW

* Shooting Mode : AV and TV
* Picture Style :User Def. 1 standard
* Sharpness + 7
* Contrast + 3
* Saturation + 2
* Color tone + 1

Please help me out.

Thanks,

Although I'm not a Canon user, if you are shooting RAW, I don't think that the

settings will have any effect as they are for use with jpg files.

Sounds to me like you need to process the RAWs in a specific program to get the best from them.

If I'm wrong about this a Canon user will correct me soon enough.

Re: Canon XS setting .

Generally, it is true that these settings will not affect Raw files. However, for certain recent Canon cameras (certainly 500D, 50D & 5D2) many of the camera settings are included with other data in the Raw file. Cannon's DPP software reads this and presets the Raw convertions accordingly though you can change these settings. Adobe software does not read this data at this time.

Re: Canon XS setting .

So, my setting as I posted above will be affect only JPEG files ?
* Well, If I don't want to fix my image with Canon software in my computer and I'll change setting to shoot in RAW , it'll be ok ?
* some people told me , shoot in RAW will have a good quality than JPEG , is that true ?
* Can I use the same setting for shooting Portrait and Landscape ?

Thanks for helping me .

Re: Canon XS setting .

RAW files are a better format to work in, but do require a two stage process to get the best from them.

Problem with jpg is that the camera will do a lot of processing - admittedly with some input from you with the settings you describe - but any further editing you might want to do will then be working on a modified imgae (by the camera) rather than the original data.

Re: Canon XS setting .

See Dave's Post above.

You can use these settings and when you open in the Canon DPP Software they get applied by default. As your shooting in RAW, should you not like these defaults, you can change them in the software.

If you're using other RAW software, then these settings are pretty meaningless to it, and you just have to use their settings.
