"micro-contrast"? What's that then?
Hi gang.
Micro-contrast is a term I hear bandied about a great deal, admittedly at the more seedy-end forums than here, and by people who don't seem to know what it means(probably including me). I get the feeling it is another of those terms that folks use to pretend a degree of pseudo-professional mysticism.
For instance, I recently saw a thread somewhere that opined(and I paraphrase): "...the Japanese favour edge to edge sharpness, whereas the Germans look at micro-contrast, in ascertaining a lens' sharpness..."
I confess I really don't understand the above quote...and am not sure even what "micro-contrast means.
Can anyone help me understand this term please?
