If you wish to contribute a custom curve for the D100 please post it to this thread.
Please include the following in your post:
1) The curve itself, saved from Nikon Capture Camera Control as a .ntc file then compressed to a .zip file (using PKZip / WinZip / MacZipIt or an equivalent) and uploaded as an attachment using the ZIP compressed file option.
2) Two sample photos of the same scene using identical camera settings: the first should use your custom curve and the second should use the camera's normal curve. These images should not be processed beyond being resized, should not be larger than 600x400 pixels and should be saved using the sRGB colour space.
3) Details of the camera settings and a brief description of what you intend the curve to do.
To try and keep things easily readable I'd request that curves should be posted in reply to this message so the thread doesn't get too deeply nested. If you wish to comment on a particular curve, please reply to the message containing that curve.
Again, to prevent this thread from becoming unmanageable I'd request that any question relating to the use of curves or debates on their relative merits be made as normal posts to the forum.
Lens: AF-S 28-70mm f/2.8 at 50mm Exposure: 1/350 sec – f/10 Sensitivity: ISO 200 Exposure mode: Programmed Metering mode: Matrix White Balance: Direct sunlight Image Quality: NEF (RAW)
These shots were taken at about 1:30pm on a brightly sunny afternoon in October. The curve is intended to boost the midtones and shadow detail to give back the brightness without loosing too much in the way of highlight detail.

I still confuse the custom curve with the EV compensation. Could we use EV compensation instead of using custom curve ? As I observed, the original curve does a better color than the custom curve. Any comment ??
