    I'm using a Sony DSC-H2, a non-SLR 6MP which appears to have pretty decent manual exposure controls. All output is JPG. I use the highest quality format, and I run everything through Photoshop Elements.

    Considering the noisy nature of a digital sharpness control, I'm wondering if there's any benefit to minimizing the camera's sharpness settings and doing it myself in Elements?

    I would leave the picture untouched while in camera and do any sharpening I need in photoshop. Just my 2 cents though...

    Yeah, let the camera do as little as possible in all cases.

    It depends on the camera. The Canon 30D from what I've seen produces very pleasing sharpening. The Nikon D200 is kinda crap so you'd do best to turn it off or shoot in raw and sharpen in post.

    I have no idea about your camera but why not just try and see what you come up with.
