post sharpness

I know, Philip Bloom has already written a lot about that issue of post process sharpening compared to camera sharpness but let me just add my 2 cent to the discussion.

In general i can say exactly the same, turn the in-camera sharpening off. And later in Premiere Pro or FCP you can put it back on, coming up with much better results.

The result makes quite a big difference. Some people might now say, that the post sharpening has some undesirable effects on the render-timer which can be an issue for broadcast products that have to be delivered in a timely manner. My experience up to now was, that i could not see a tremendous increase in render time with a value for sharpening around 30 in Premiere Pro CS6 on a Intel i7 2.2 Ghz.

Important is though, not to get carried away. Over-Sharp images can look very fast very fake and undesirable. So its always good to play around to find the sharpness that suits you and the lens you are using.

That is something i noticed too different lenses sometimes need different sharpness settings. I normally use a setting of 30 for the Canon 24-105 L and a 15-20 setting for the Canon 70-200 L f4. But i havent done extensive testing.
