About Custom Curves
May 6, 2004

Hello,

I am also using custom curve on my camera (Oldskool midtone enhancer v3). When I try to load a custom curve with camera control (Nikon Capture Editor), I see that the image looks better but the histogram becomes very diminished. The graphic gets so small and as if desaturated. And I see some blow outs at the near highlight side. I wonder what is important. Is it OK when we see the final image and say it is good or is there any problem if we get a result with lots of colour lost? I am in SLR photography during 12 years, 3 years in darkroom (B&W), but new in digital SLR with D70. Do you have any opinions?

Thanks in advance, Bugra.
