After reading another forum post in the D300 board I decided to try some of the custom picture control modes that you can download. I found on the nikon Canada site (http://nikonimglib.com/opc/) that you can already download the D700 picture control files?
The thing I had the hardest time with is finding a place where I could actually download these modes. Everyone talks about the D2x Mode1, 2, 3, but no one says where you can download them.
Anyway, I downloaded a few to try, but my question I guess is more a D300/D700 overall question about the modes... are these only applied to jpg's? If I am shooting RAW and that's it, do these do me no good at all? That is what another post was saying, but I can't understand why the d-light and pic control modes don't apply to raw?
I went from the D2X to the D300 (via an old D100) and have had a little trouble getting colors I like with the D300, and I assume the D700 will be similar, but Nikon does have them posted for the D700 already.
I am shooting my first wedding in a few weeks and just wanted to get some of these modes pinned down for skin tone, but I also plan on using them in my D700 when it arrives. Thanks, Scott
