Some years ago Nikon made available D2x modes 1,2 and 3 available for download to the D300 and D700 cameras. I found them really useful and want to copy them to my Df, but have been unable to do so.
Can a forum member tell me if this is possible to do and how to go about it as I have run out of ideas.
Thank you
Ben

If you are shooting RAW, it doesn't matter, they were only jpeg settings designed to emulate the look of the D2x jpeg settings. I still like the look of the D2x files and do recall installing the D2x modes on my D300. The Df was a D4 generation camera and to my memory the D2x emulation modes were only for the generation after the D2x, ie, the D300/D700. Nikon does not normally carry forward and the D2x emulation modes were a bit of a fluke to be honest.

Thank you Baywing that explains it. I was unaware of Nikon’s reasons for their action. However I am disappointed to hear this as I like their look too, so I will have to continue using them on my D 300. Many thanks
