Hi all. I searched the internet briefly, but not sure I got my answer. I have an X100 (and an X-E1 on order). Been lazy about the settings until now, but wondering.... most of my shots are of my family or friends. 99% are portraits or people shots, and of those two-thirds are indoors with either a bounced EF-20 flash or whatever lighting with pushed ISO.

SO - right now I have left alone the Shadow Tone and Highlight Tone setting in camera. What though is the best setting for these kinds of photos? I usually use JPGs right out of camera (no time for RAW at this point in my life) on Provia setting. Thanks.

I find that Pro Neg High gives me the most pleasing results. I find Provia too flat.

I set it as such:

SHADOW -1
HIGHLIGHT -1
COLOR +1
SHARP +1
DR 100

Thanks for your settings above. But dont you mean "Provia" when you sayd "Pro Neg High"? Or do you mean Pro(via) Neg(ative Tone) High (Color and Sharp) ?
