Custom (CSM) Menu
Custom Settings (contd.)
| 18: Monitor Off
| 19: Aperture Control
|Change amount of time before LCD will automatically turn itself off.||Maintain constant aperture or maintain aperture at a value a constant number of steps from the maximum aperture.|
| 20: ISO Step Value
| 21: AE-L/AF-L Button
|Controls the size of sensitivity increments between ISO levels.||Controls the action of the AE-L/AF-L button.|
| 22: Aperture Setting
| 23: Image Sharpening
|Allow the aperture to be selected using the aperture ring on a lens rather than the sub command dial.||Controls internal sharpening algorithm (not applied to RAW images).|
| 24: Image Sharpening
| 25: Continuous mode
|Allows for control over the "curve" used to correct the tone of the image captured (not applied to RAW images). Custom allows the user to define a curve in Nikon Capture 2 and upload it to the camera.||Set the shooting speed for continuous mode.|
| 26: Continuous mode
| 27: Display Mode
|Set the shooting speed for continuous mode, no more than 6 RAW shots can be buffered in a burst so anything over 6 only applies to JPEG. If you have zoom in playback enabled (CSM 36) you will lose one third of buffer space (max 6 JPEG or 4 RAW).||Sets what additional pages will be available in image review mode. Either blinking highlights, a histogram or both.|
| 28: NEF (RAW) Image
| 29: File Number
|Sets the use and type of RAW image saved, either disabled completely, uncompressed or losslessly compressed. Nikon's NEF format can only be viewed using Nikon View 4 or Nikon Capture 2 (or third party applications such as Bibble or Qimage Pro).||Controls whether filenames are reset to zero every time a new / empty storage card is detected or if a sequence of file names.|
| 30: PC Shooting
| 31: ISO Boost
|Changes the frame-advance mode when camera is in PC mode (under computer control).||Controls the camera sensor sensitivity, set to 0 you can select from 125 to 800 ISO equiv., at 1 or 2 sensitivity is locked at approximately 1600 or 3200 ISO equiv. respectively.|
| 32: Color Mode
| 33: Hue Adjustment
|Allows you to select the colour space used to save images, sRGB is a relatively narrow gamut colour space which is the most commonly used for computer monitors and web browsing. Adobe RGB offers a far wider colour gamut and is more suited to professional and commercial applications.||Make slight adjustments to the camera's colour balance. 3 is seen as neutral, 0 pushes hues towards purple, 6 towards yellow.|
| 34: Disable Shutter
if no CF Card
| 35: Rear Control
|Disable the shutter release if there is no Compact Flash card inserted.||Controls what is displayed on the rear control panel, the default is ISO sensitivity but this can be changed to Frame Count (which was the default for the D1).|
| 36: Zoom-PB during
|Enables the ability to zoom the review image displayed immediately after shutter release. Enabling this option reduces the maximum number of shots which can be taken in a burst from 9 JPEG / 6 RAW to 6 JPEG / 4 RAW.|
Notable improvements: Monitor off delay is now default of 20 seconds. New compressed RAW mode saves 50-60% storage space (although as yet third party applications can't read this format). Selectable colour spaces - very welcome!
