Sharpen and Contrast Controls Continued

Lucikly, the sharpness and contrast controls on all of the cameras we've tested tend to be very lightweight. In fact, many people can't really see much difference between photos taken with increased or decreased sharpness or contrast. But that doesn't mean they aren't affecting the very structure of your photos.

We never use either, preferring to capture and maintain the highest quality, true detail in our original photos. Then, we may alter copies of our originals either using the RAW format utility (see Chapter 5) or a photo-editing program like Photoshop (see Chapter 18). That doesn't mean you shouldn't go ahead and experiment with them and see how they affect your photos. You might like the effect.
