Hello to all Forum members,

This is my first post here...

I recently got myself a J1 with the 10-30 and 30-110 lenses and am trying to determine the best settings for the camera. Is there any consensus on whether Actice D-Lighting should be left on, or kept off? My photography is mostly landscapes and cityscapes. Any other suggestions you might have for the camera settings would be much appreciated.

Meanwhile this may be of interest to other forum members:
As an experiment, I have currently set all the settings for Picture Control i.e. Contrast, Saturation, Sharpening etc to Auto rather than the default settings. I've done this for all modes i.e. Standard, Neutral, Vivid etc. And I've set the camera on Auto Scene select. With these settings, I shot a couple of hundred photos in Paris recently and have been very pleased with the way the camera handled the exposures. Is anyone else here using the camera with these settings?

Meanwhile, I would appreciate any suggestions for the Active D-Lighting.

Regards to all
