Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video In-camera sharpening, part of Photoshop: Sharpening Power (2011).
When you capture an image with a digital camera, there are several factors that …contribute to a degree of softness within the image. …This includes filters such as anti-aliasing and infrared cut-off that …are placed in front of the image sensor, as well as the very nature of converting …analog information, light into a digital signal. …As a result, you might be tempted to turn on a little bit of sharpening in the …camera to compensate for the softness inherent in a digital photo. …For most photographers, sharpening in the camera won't do any bit of good.…
The reason is that sharpening, along with most other in-camera settings that affect …the appearance of the image, doesn't apply to raw captures. …For most cameras, the only settings that affect a raw capture are the aperture, …shutter speed, and ISO setting. A few cameras have other settings, such …as a highlight priority mode that does alter the raw data to some extent. …But the other settings that change the image appearance won't affect a raw capture. …
