    Has me thinking...

    Fiddled with it a bit today and couldn't tell too much of a difference shooting a hard drive bottom.

    It only matters if you shoot JPEG, or raw and process with NX. NX will grab all your in-camera settings and use them as the starting point when it processes a raw image.

    So if I'm shooting raw and post processing using cs3, there is no advantage to doing any in camera sharpening, correct?

    if i shoot jpeg i may want to bump it up a notch though?

    Correct. All digital files benefit from some form of sharpening due to the AA filter in front of the sensor.

    No. If you shoot in raw your in camera setting don't matter unless you're using capture or view nx.

    If you're using Adobe anything it doesn't matter, although it will still slow it down. There are other settings that change a raw file though. Long Exposure NR for instance. It takes a second shot with the shutter closed and the same settings as the first then subtracts the difference to get rid of amp noise. It's why it takes so long if you leave the setting on.

    I use lightroom to do basic changes/processing then export to .dng and use a droplet to do denoising, sharpening, color space change, and save to jpg.

    I'd do all that on export from lightroom but I use different machines for Lightroom and Photoshop.
