Re: Finally admitted defeat

Try shooting with a cloudy white balance, or even AWB with a +6 amber trim. Pure white does not always lead to a pleasant WB in the overall image/skin tone.

Having successfully photographed weddings etc since 1969 both on film and digital I dont really see myself as a snapshooter with too much money.

However I do think that a D700 should be capable of rendering a grooms suit as black rather than very dark blue straight from the box. I have tried all of the Nikon picture controls and tried all combinations of contrast, saturation and hue. i have tried fine tuning the white Balance. As for the dodgy autofocus and noise on the Canons I havent seen evidence yet for that and as most of my photography is portraiture I dont see much problem with the focus. I am photographing a family wedding on Thursday and I will keep you all posted.
