Hi Guys,
I have been changing my shooting settings lately,
My "old" practice was to set the picture control in camera, to "Landscape",
Then change later in CNX2 if I needed a different option

I did a poll here recently and noticed that most were shooting the "in camera" setting as STANDARD,

I should note here that I'm only shooting raw files!

Example
I shoot a scene using the "in camera" picture control set at STANDARD, I later change that picture control to VIVID in CNX2 because I think the image would look better,

If I had captured the image using VIVID in the first place, does the camera do a better job than changing a picture control PP in CNX2?

I know a raw file is just that but wanted to check if the initial capture process in camera just may do a better job when using raw?

Regards,
Gary

I used to have a photographic memory but never got it developed
