SOOC JPEG's and curve settings.

Yes, yes, I know some of us only shoot RAW, I myself shoot LSF+RAW. The LSF does come in handy for the odd quick 'snap' now and again however.

Never dabbled in Custom Curves before, I came across this post and thought I'd give it a read.......

After wading through it I finally came to the important bit, the OP sets his curves to Shadow +5, Midtones -2 and Highlights +6.

Give it a go, it only takes minutes to setup via the SCP, see what you think.

IMHO, there is a noticeable improvement.

Re: SOOC JPEG's and curve settings.

I read it three days ago, test it and found way too extreme his values, maybe something is wrong with his camera exposure meter.
