You can't do anything in a raw file to fix this either.

Any chance of seeing the RAW file, please?

I use a different tool which will probably give a different result.

Of course it will give you a different result. But the point is that Stacey likes the output she gets from her D200 without having to use a different tool and without too much fiddling with a raw developer and curves, etc.

Perhaps you missed Stacey's comment above mine: "You can't do anything in a RAW file to fix this, either."

I like playing with RAW files - I'm always interested to see what happens in my experience.

That's exactly my point: you like playing with RAW files (or "fiddling"), whereas Stacey and I would rather just spend time shooting with a camera that doesn't require so much fiddling with exposure and tone curves to get things right - the D200, as it happens.

I'm not asking Stacey to use a different tool - I would like to try a different tool myself, for my own practice and experience.

Also you should check the portrait that Stacey posted in the other thread, the skin tones are just perfect.

Actually, I prefer Fuji skin tones to Nikon, even on the D200. Fuji are a little warmer...but it's OK to be different.

Indeed! Glad you acknowledge it.
