A1 Sharpness and color settings?

Curious what others with this camera have these set at. I did not immediately find this in a search. I did see one post for the HC1, but curious on this one.

I generally keep the sharpness around 6-7 and the color in the middle around 8.

If I remember right, Alan Roberts who was a R & D guy has some settings on his reeeeeeally in depth review of the A1 and HC1 at:

Hope that helps.

Thanks Frank. I just read that a little while back. I did find interesting that he basically recommends keeping black stretch on all of the time. I am going to give it a whirl. My own findings is a need to use one push white balance 98% of the time.

That's one of the fun parts. The settings these people get end up being more of a point of departure for us as we find out what works for us.
