    Default Awesome HD detail boost!!!

    I'm so excited about this that I just have to post about it...

    I've been using -1 sharpness (and -1 contrast) on my camcorder (Canon HF100) for a while, but I just thought this evening to see what the difference is in more detail... (all footage was shot progressive)

    (MIDDLE: default camcorder settings, RIGHT: -1 sharpness, LEFT: -1 sharpness, plus minimal sarpness in post)

    Full frames...

    -1 sharpness + minimal sharpness in post. alue)%20in%20post.jpg

    -1 sharpness

    Default camcorder...

    I was amazed when I saw the results.

    I know I shouldn't fuss about quality, but this detail boost is certainly a welcome discovery! It might be useful for other people to know.

    What's happening here is (I think), the camcorder is applying a silly enhance filter, and at -1 sharpness it's disabled. When sharpened with a superior filter in post, there's more detail.

    Anyone else got some good theories?

    WOW...I don't actually see how thats possible but...yeah...nice find.

    You seam to be good with all of this sharpening stuff don't you?

    what would happen if you apply a very fine blur the the left images? i think it may slightly remove some of the jagured edges a little bit. still...NICE
