I've been taking 35mm photos with my F100 and FM2 for 20 years. I bought the D600 body less than a year ago, and I'm still trying to optimize my picture settings to get what I want. So far, it's been impossible to get a printed image anywhere close to the quality and look of my 35mm images. All my images look washed out and flat compared to the chemical reaction on paper. I've purchased and read all the Nikon books and guides, but I haven't found anything that outlines how I can set my picture settings to look as close to film as possible. I use Aperture on my Mac, and do not spend anytime on the computer trying to mimic the film look. I'm not a graphic designer and do not believe photography is about sitting at my computer for hours to get a useable image. Does anyone have any advice on how to set my D600 picture settings? Thanks very much.
