I am sure this has been discussed some time before, but what is the best way to handle the problem where the image displayed on the camera LCD always looks so much better than it does when you open it in a post processing program?
I have been shooting NEF Auto ISO (6400) with my D700 and a f2.8 70-200 lens at a lot of low light entertainment events in a large room (100 + people) in a retirement home and when I glance at the LCD they look great, but post processing in Capture Nx2 they appear under exposed. Often by a stop or two.
I understand - use the histogram to evaluate the exposure, but is there some way to preset Capture Nx2 to reproduce the same bright image I see on the camera?
I could use flash, but that seems to bother a lot of those old folks. Thanks Doc 85 (really 89)
