Today I tried to "Dial In" our D600 better.
We went on a WalkAbout in Montery and to the piers.
I was trying different Picture Control settings.

When I got home, I uploaded the Large Fine JPEGs that I shot with Quality Priority.
To my surprise the differences in images at different Picture Control setting was minor compared to Gain Control.
Evidently it is in Automatic mode.
What I noticed in the EXIF properties was that when it was normal (no gain) the pictures were all very good in every way,
but in low gain they were slightly blown out
and when in high gain they were almost completely washed out.
