Subject: Re: Camera Raw default settings with Canon 20D


Since you asked. I have maintained for some time that the ACR default for brightness is suspect for most cameras. And that if the brightness default is wrong it will appear that your exposure metering is wrong. Thus, I feel that a proper calibration starts with the brightness slider based on the mid tone (Neutral 5 patch) and a photographically correctly exposed image. For some reason, others feel that the exposure slider set on the white patch is the starting point. You be the judge.

With two different 20D cameras the brightness slider calibrated to 34 and 39 respectively. I use Nikon and Kodak cameras. Since employing this approach, I find that my cameras and light meter do expose “correctly”.

Cheers, Rags :-)
