Emulating D7000's exposure with D5100
9 months ago

I recently had the opportunity to play with a Nikon D7000. I've heard a lot of times that D5100 and D7000 share the same sensor, and so their output should be identical. Somehow, I disagree with that. Shooting with D7000 feels completely different. And moreover, the exposure of D7000 isn't the same as D5100. Even when metering the same scene with Matrix metering, D7000 usually overexposed the scene by around .5EV. So when I dialed in +.5EV in D5100 to match the outputs, even then the results were dissimilar. The D7000's tone curve and gamma curve seemed to be a bit different. To my untrained eye, the midtones looked a bit boosted up. Though this wasn't desirable for JPEG, it indeed helped the RAW shooters. Can this gamma curve correction be applied to D5100?
