    I've been shooting JPEG+RAW but finding the JPEG's to be handier when I'm posting from my tablet and I especially like the Classic Chrome film simulation. However I wondered what settings people are using for JPEG's in their camera for landscapes (Dynamic Range, Highlight Tone, Shadow Tone, Color, Sharpness, Noise Reduction)?

    Hi Chris, I have to say jpg+raw is a good choice, as is Classic Chrome. Beyond that I think "landscapes" is too broad a classification to give an optimum set of settings. The Arizona desert is a landscape, as are the Scottish Highlands, but I would treat them differently.

    That said, as a start point I generally leave DR at 200, boost colour +1, and set sharpness and NR as low as I can. That's a good Base for most purposes, I find - not just landscape. I also meter using spot 99.9% of the time.

    Hi Bill

    Why do you set sharpness low?
