post-processing filters which adjust the brightness and contrast of
the image after it's taken but before it's written to the CF card.

More / Less Contrast - adjust contrast
Lighten / Darken Image - adjust brightness
An interesting feature which gives the photographer good control over
the cameras internal processing algorithms, something which is normally
beyond our reach.
New to the 995 (and
definitely sought after) is the ability to control the overall saturation
of colours in the final image (again, is related to Image Adjustment,
Maximum - produces strong, saturated colours,
Nikon say "best for direct print applications"
Normal - standard colours (same as 990)
Moderate - less saturated colours
Minimum - relatively pale, under saturated
B&W - black and white (no special channel
mixing, just grayscale)
People who lust after strong colours and who like the colour reproduction
of (say) the Sony DSC series would probably leave this setting at +1 (we'll
cover this in more detail later in the review).
Switches the camera into special modes depending on the optional
lens attachment used. Each of these modes is intended to work with
Nikon Coolpix lenses. Additionally there's now support for Nikon's
own Slide Copy adapter.
Details of these optional lenses can be found in
the Accessories section of this review.
Record Menu: Page Two
The user settings menu allows you to choose between three different
"memories" of settings each memory contains the values
of various settings (white balance, metering, continuous mode, BSS
mode, lens, image adjustment and sharpening).
This feature can be useful for memorizing particular settings for
shooting in a particular environment or a style of shot, or if the
camera is shared by up to three people.
