Where to find filter effects

Hi,

I want to use the Z6 filter effects. I have color gels for my flash but I want to try the camera's filter effects for the sunset portrait shoot to see how it works. I'm trying to find that setting in my camera but I just couldn't find it.

Can anyone tell me how to find this setting?

I really appreciate your help. Thank you!

It sounds like you're perhaps asking about something to do with Picture Controls?  Try scrolling through the Picture Controls.

If I recall correctly, there are 2 directions you can scroll:  one direction is Nikon's basic controls like "Standard," Portrait," etc.  The other is like hundreds of random ones.  An easy way to access them is through the i-menu (if you've added this there).

Also remember:  they affect JPEG-rendering only, though they are also tags on the raw file.

In addition to the replies you got, you can shoot an image then go into Photo Shooting Menu and select Retouch for some edits I believe.

I really appreciate your help. Thank you!

Started shooting digital back with the first 2MP cameras. Over 20 cameras later still going. I shoot family and people portraits, weddings, Sports and a little of everything.

Two ways to get there.

MENU:

Hit the MENU button. Then scroll to PHOTO SHHOTING MENU. Scroll down one page. Click on SET PICTURE CONTROL.

The better way long term:

MENU:

Scroll down to the "pencil" icon.

Select "F/Controls"

Click on "F1/Customize i menu."

Then click on any of the i Menu icons with the "OK" button on the camera body. Then select "SET PICTURE CONTROL." Once done, press the MENU button to complete the changes.

Now, you can access the Picture Controls/Artistic Filters directly from the iMenu without diving deep into the main menu each time you want to change picture styles/looks.
