Canon's DPP and Unsharp mask

J-P Dupre , Aug 22, 2011; 08:54 p.m.

The latest versions of Canon's Digital Photo Professional now have the "Unsharp mask" adjustment, in addition to the simpler "Sharpness" option.
“Unsharp Mask” offers 3 settings: Strength, Fineness and Threshold, each adjustable from 0 to 10.
How those settings compare with Camera Raw settings (Amount, Radius, Detail and Masking) or Photoshop Elements 9 (Amount, Radius and Threshold)?
Any recommendation on an appropriate setting to use as a starting point?
Thank you.

Hi, I've been using 7,7,3, in that descending order - if it helps. Seems to make the landscapes sharper.
Cheers.
