Re: Finally admitted defeat

Im really trying to grasp this... and no offense, i know we as photographers tend to see things differently sometimes.. but what is innacurate about the D700, and in what type of situations are your skin tones not coming out accurately?

and remember this... every type of light gives off a different tempature... so i dont understand how there is one absolute correct color of skin tone. unless u strictly shoot studio work... then maybe, but you can always dial in a correct kelvin value.. enlighten me?

After two years of trying to get decent skin tones out of D700 ( and latterly a D90 ) I have final given up. I have tried every way to achieve good skin tone including expodiscs and grey cards. I have tried countless nuances of settings and wasted time and money tring to achieve good results.

I have now gone back to Canon with a D7 and a D600. EUREKA straight from the box excellent skin tones and accurate colours.

I will now have the time to take photographs and my family will not run screaming from the room when skin tones are mentioned!
