This question is an offshoot from another recent thread and also from reading David DuChemin's third book (the one on post-processing). Basically, I'm interested in whether or not RAW shooters tend to use in-camera presets - for things like saturation, sharpness, etc - in order to get an attractive camera LCD preview and also get those settings reflected (where the software recognises or tries to approximate those settings) in the initial rendering of the RAW file in Capture NX2, Lightroom, Photoshop or whatever. Or alternately do people go for as 'flat' / unaltered RAW file as possible in camera, and as an editing starting point (e.g. David DuChemin who 'zeroes' his RAWs before starting to post-process) and work from there. I've always both shot/chimped and also started post from a file with some degree of camera settings carried over, without 'zero-ing' my work, and never really thought about it. But now I'm really curious both about what others do, and about any advantages and disadvantages of the two approaches.
