I just bought a D70. I uploaded a custom curve- White Wedding (aka Point & Shoot) using Nikon Capture and also made changes in "Optimize Image" "Custom" to Sharpening +1, Tone comp. +1, Color Mode II,Saturation enhanced,Hue -3 and increased EV to +.3. Did the changes negate the custom curve or are all the changes and the curve working at the same time?

Go here http://fotogenetic.dearingfilm.com/custom_tone_curves.html# and read tutorial on curves then go here http://fotogenetic.dearingfilm.com/downloads.html and download fotogenetic_correction_curves_v4.zip and use Nikon Capture Editor to upload the "point and shoot" curve to your D70.

tominrom, your tone comp should not be +1, it should be on 'custom' reflecting the use of the custom curve. Tone comp of +1 is higher than normal contrast, and will generally lead to harsh looking pictures esp under sunlight.

Also, do not initally set your EV to +0.3, as the white wedding aka. point and shoot curves apply +0.5EV throughout the range to counter the less than ideal midtone brightness.

Thank you! I am still learning how to set this camera up. I was disappointed with out of the box "auto" settings. How about the "hue" at -3 and saturation at enhanced? Better yet, let me put it this way, If I shoot in P,A,S,M modes what settings should I use under "Optimise Image" to get the best results? I know I should shoot in "raw" but I don't like to have to do a lot of post processing. Any/all help will be appreciated.
