    Hi,

    My Kodak DX6490 has three options for sharpening:
    Soft;
    Normal;
    Sharp.

    I have been using normal, as the description in the manual suggests that
    "normal" is no sharpening and "soft" is like putting a special filter on to make
    the images look softer.

    I want no sharpening and no softening.

    A friend is adamant that the soft setting is most likely the "no sharpening"
    setting and "normal" actually does a bit of sharpening.

    Does anyone know what the soft and normal modes really are in this camera?

    Thanks.

    Greetings Ben,

    Looks like you are right, there is no effect as you suggest. Actually the
    settings are as follows.

    Sharp-increases contrast on the edges of the image. Ideal when you want to
    improve the clarity of an image, or if you later may want to crop the image.


    Standard (default)-use when no special effect is needed. Ideal for everyday
    pictures.


    Soft-softens the edges of the image. Ideal for a "soft focus" effect.

    Hope this helps, if you have questions in the future, let me know, glad to
    assist.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks for replying, Ron.

    Just to clarify, the soft setting actually reduces the contrast on the edges of
    the image, right? Whereas the standard setting involves no sharpening?
