I was wondering what ya'll set you parameters to.
Personally, I have the 50mm 1.8 that I mostly shoot with. It is on a 1.6 crop. I also use a 70-210 with a constant 4 app. I mostly set my settings to 0. I would like to know more about it if anyone can help.

Thanks ya'll.

You mostly have which settings on 0? There are 100 different parameters that can be set on a DSLR--you need to be a little more specific.

I usually set my model parameters based on historical values for housing, price and employment elasticities and then allow them to vary until they reach a natural settling point.

Exposure compensation? AF fine tune? Flux Capacity?

Sorry.
In the menu on my Rebel, under the tab with a camera and number 2, I have a setting called "Parameters." I have adjustments for contrast, sharpness, saturation and color tone. They adjust from 0 to +/- 2. Does that help?

Ohh, definitely helps.

I like contrast and vivid colors, so I usually crank them up. But I shoot in raw so it doesn't actually change anything, but gives me a decent preview of what it will look like after I've processed in my typical manner.

I think you should adjust those to your own individual liking, or just not really worry about them too much and shoot RAW. Then you can tweak 'till you are happy in post.
