Hi jerry,

If active D-lighting is not working for you, there is another in-camera option.

I see that you list Capture NX and View NX in your profile. Included with these programs is the Picture Control Utility.

You can create a custom Picture Control that can be loaded into the camera. Using View NX go to File > Launch Picture Control Utility.


Load one of your high contrast images and make adjustments (I would create a custom curve) to get the look that you like. Then click on New... and give your new picture control a name. Now you will be able to load it to the camera or apply it to images in Capture or View NX.

If you run into any issues doing this you can post a question in our Nikon & Nikonians Imaging Software forum.
