    I've been using X100 on default Provia settings and find the results a little lacking in impact. I find I usually end up adding some clarity in Lightroom. Could someone share their Jpeg settings that result in more striking contrasty JPEG files? I read somewhere else that Velvia mode is not recommended because it crushes blacks too much. Is that the general consensus?
    Thank you :)

    Astia is punchier.

    I've been playing around with the following settings: Astia, DR200, color mid, sharpness m-hard, highlight std, shadow m-soft, noise reduction m-low.
    Seems to work pretty well, but I haven't gotten enough shots in with the X100 to really make a final judgement.

    I shoot raw+jpeg so I can go back and "redevelop" with other settings if I want to try something else.

    As long as you have the X100 set to also soot Raw, Raw+JPEG in your case, you can use the camera's Raw converter to render any number of JPEGs after the event to see what you prefer. A great feature of X cameras.

    Have a look at Rico's excellent article. Apologies if you already know all this!

    Velvia. Doesn't get much punchier than that. If you're shooting RAW and using Adobe products for RAW conversion, you can always switch between profiles.
