Default What is the norm?

From my experience that even within the same model range manufacturers don't seem to make up there minds what is the norm regarding basic normal default settings on a camera. Brightness, colour, contrast, sharpness etc. Why ain't there some kind of universal agreement to make life easier for the perspective purchaser.
In the old days Ilford FP4 was Ilford FP4!!

welcome to the new millenium.

since the film is now built into the camera they are all just a little different isn't it fun. the proper term is optimization. then of course you really can't tell fom the teeny monitor on the back if it really is good or bad. then you take it home put it on your uncalibrated monitor and there's more. printers also have their own way of looking at the image too. there probably a course on how to set up the workflow from camera to printer lining up all your ICC profiles in a row. start reading up on it.

nah-- just takes a little getting used to and a few head bangs against a good solid wall. then it all becomes apparent and starts working.

The level of frustration is also determined by how comfortable you are with hardware/software, how well your computer and camera work with each other, and many other factors.

sjms is right about once you get it figured out one time the rest is easy.

That is, until you change the camera, software, OS, system, editor, etc., and at that point you have to go through and re-callibrate once again.
