On my Fuji S1, I normally shoot with sharpening turned OFF and I use an unsharp mask in Photoshop in post processing. I use the following values:
With my kit and these values, I get some very crisp images.
I have experimented with sharpening set on the camera to "STD" (standard) and the results have been quite nice too (sometimes, it is hard to tell the difference). My question: when is it appropriate to shoot with sharpening performed by the camera? When I shoot a lot of images, it takes a long time to sharpen all of them in software.
Thanks for your help.

I'm not sure how the D1X compares to your D100 regards sharpening. With the X, I use either of two options - (1) high in-camera sharpening or (2) low in-camera then Capture at about 66/5/8 when using 125 to 250 (thank you Ron Reznick. Sharpening the D100, I'm sure other Nikonians will weigh in.

i believe in thom hogans book "complete guide to d1, d1x..etc."
that he says to turn off the sharpening in the d1x and use soft to sharpen...not sure the reason...sorry i forgot...i turn off my sharpen in my d1x....sharpness depends more on light conditions...maybe i'm wrong...?
