"Histogram differences"
Tue 18-Jun-13 10:12 PM by William Rounds

I post process with NX2 and with DxO. I notice that there is a significant difference in the histogram presented from the same NEF file in DxO compared to NX2. When I shoot RAW format images I set all of the in-camera settings to neutral (whether D700 or D7000), thinking this would eliminate any in-camera treatment of the file that would be interpreted in NX2. Shouldn't the two histograms be identical?

DxO doesn't know of your in-camera settings so uses it's own.

In DxO I can use a "no treatment" preset which I assumed meant "no-treatment". Is there a "no treatment" preset in NX2?

Neither program has a "no treatment" preset. If they did, you'd be pretty surprised at what it looked like.

The closest you can get to no treatment in Nikon Capture NX2 is the Neutral Picture Control with sharpness adjusted to zero. I created a picture control called Neutral - No Sharpening for this purpose. I use it when noise needs to be minimized. I apply capture sharpening as a separate step in the editing process.
