Hi everybody,

I've created new picture control presets using Nikon Picture Control Utility. As I didn't know how to export them to my D3000, I followed this procedure directly from nikon.ca to upload the new settings to my camera.

However, when I inserted back my memory card into the D3000 and turned it on, I never saw the "Manage Picture Control" option in the shooting menu. Did I miss something? The article on nikon.ca cleary says that the D3000 is a supported DSLR. Anyone can help me with this?

Thank you everyone!

According to what I am finding in the PDF version of the manuals, the D3000 and D3100 do not support this feature. You would need to move to the D5000 or upgrade to the D90/D7000 line. Is it possible that you misread "D300" for "D3000" ?

In the link I specified, if you click on the "Details" button at the bottom of the article, the D3000 is clearly specified.

Hello,

The "Details" button to which the OP refers does have a selection for "D3000." However, there is no mention of any "customizable" picture control capability in the article referenced by that selection. There is only a reference in the "Tech Specs" to the D3000's 6 preset picture controls.

Rgds,
Jim

The D3000 allows for customization of camera controls in the camera, pages 88 -90 of the 30000 manual, but you can not use Nikon Capture NX2 to modify the D3000 picture controls of the D3000. There is no mention of being able to move these settings to or from a media card.

Also, while you can customize controls, you can't save such a customization in a "user customizable setting."
