Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting a picture control, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
To select a picture control on your D7000, hit the Menu button.…Here in the Shooting menu you are going to scroll all the way down here to Set…Picture Control and here I get a menu of my Picture Control options.…By default I am on Standard which is probably going to be the best for most situations.…It provides nicely balanced results and looks good for just about anything you…are going to be shooting.…Neutral is going to apply less processing than standard.…It's going to give you a very natural looking result.…
It probably means you are going to have to do more work in your computer.…The advantage of Neutral is since the camera has not already manipulated your…image, you will possibly be able to do a little more manipulation in your…computer before you start seeing certain types of artifacts.…If I go down to Vivid, I will get a picture control that gives me…really saturated colors and bright primary colors and possibly even…little more contrast.…Monochrome gives me a black and white image.…
