Getting the best of FZ18 Image Quality...
Reading Jeff's review on the FZ18 he got the best quality by using the pic adjust at NR -2 and RAW file.
I made some tests with jpeg format with NR-2, NR0 and NR+2 and after I processed the images with Photoshop CS2. The best result was with NR-2, like Jeff's review for RAW format.
With NR-2 we have a more detailed image and reducing noise after keeped the details and lines with a great definition.
For all tests I used Contrast Zero, Sharpness Zero and Saturation +1.
Later I'll post the link of the images with some 100% crops.
