Having some exposure problems lately and trying to figure out precisely what is going on with all aspects of exposure.

On my camera for ADL options I have Auto, Extra high, High, Normal, Low and off. I currently have it set to normal.

My question is how it relates to what can be done in post in NX-D, if I have it turned off in camera can I get any affect I could have achieved by having it on in camera by using the slider in NX-D? And vice versa so if I had it turned on can I reverse it as if it was never turned on in the first place? And if those things are possible how would I go about doing it?

BTW, when I load photos into NX-D the D-lighting slider is always to the left (0) by default.

My understanding is that Active D-Lighting adjustment happens before the exposure is made. "D-Lighting" is made after and may not yield the same latitude as "Active D-Lighting."
