So far - what I best learned ; to get sharp,non-muddy images ; for as close a this camera will record as the eye sees ; try NL +sharpness custom settings(like also +contrast and/or +saturation)-now these settings may require some post adjusting.For more non-post adj. try ; SD +sharpness ,and VI + sharpness (now SD and VI require less added sharpnes than NL custom and NO added contrast)NOTE DO NOT USE THAT D-LIGHTING(I think THIS is where the 'muddiness' is coming from)...use it AFTER in review touch-up.I use auto white balance, but do try the other settings for WB too. NOW ALSO - DO TEST YOUR CAMERA for dead pixels and dirty sensor;as shown 5 exposures +1/3,+/-0,-1/3,-2/3,-1 stop.Exaine CLOSELY AT ZOOMED IN. Also check your camera's meter - lake photo is ISO 500 , 500th sec. @f16 ...sunny 16 rule (on this photo I am at -1/3 exposure).Lake photo still seems a litte bright,and it's in my NL+sharpness +contrast +saturation mode,still this mode (may) need some post adj. So far with this camera - I HAVE NOT done great.But I'm gonna work wih it to do the best I can. Upping the sharpness and useing D-lightin afterwards seems to make a big difference.I have some real sharp shots - all looks better on my computer than on the site.---... I'm going to the Grand Cayon area mid Sept.-Oct.2nd...but I'm not taking this camera, taking my P+S travel kit.,because with the D5000 too much adjusting and changing lenses.
