    "The controls in the Edit Camera Curves window are identical to those in the Curves window, except in the following respects: .... (3) the midpoint may not be edited;..."

    This is wrong, at least for NEF files with Capture 4.3 and thumbnails generated with D2X.

    Andrew Raszevski suggested his curve for D2X (with -0.7..-1eV)

    here is how the curve looks like:

    Contrary to what is written in NC Help, midpoint adjustment does work. Here are two images (NEF through NC, converted to jpg), first one taken with midlle point at 1.4, and second - same curve, but with middle point set to 1:

    Hi Iliah,

    Interesting approach with this curve. Do you think this curve or a similar one may work with the D70?

    I understand that this curve works only properly with exposure compensation set to -.7 to -1EV?

    Maybe Nikon should contract out there software and help file writing?! :)

    Dear Heiko - one word. Noise.

    Thanks Iliah - got the point. Guess I have to wait for the D2X become affordable, or jump right onto the next generation hydrogen-cooled super-CCD camera with a zero-noise ISO range to 6400 :lol: .
