"Does the D70 accept custom curves?"


Toronto, CA
          

I consider the D100's custom curve feature very attractive and if I ever have the money for a DSLR I will look for this feature. Does the D70 have it? I can't find it mentioned in any specs that I've seen. Thanks.

This is from D70 the manual:

Adjusting Contrast: Tone Comp.
As photographs are saved to the memory card, they are processed to adjust the distribution of tones in the image, en hancing contrast. Tone compen sation is performed by means of tone curves that define the relationship between the distribution of tones in the original image and the compensated
result. The Tone comp. menu controls the type of curve used.

Option Custom:

Custom curve can be created in Nikon Capture 4 version 4.1
or later (available separately) and downloaded to camera.
Choose Custom to select this user-defined curve. If no
custom curve has been created, this option is equivalent to
Normal.

Hi there

I have been shooting with a Fuji S2... and I do not understand the concept of "custom curves"... please excuse my ignorance. What is a custom curve? Is it like the concepts of "curves" in Photoshop that the camera uses to modify the image?

Thanks for enlightening me!

Nikon DSLRs have a "tone compensation" setting that is similar in operation to the exposure curve control in PhotoShop. Camera owners can apply different tone settings depending upon subject and desired effect. The CUSTOM tone setting allows you to upload a user-specified curve; for this you will need Nikon Capture to define and upload the curve.

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.
