I don't have my manual handy ... and need how to access two features:

1 - A histogram on the D200
2 - How to tell the camera NOT to reset the counter back to 1 for building the file names for the photos everytime I put a new compact flash card into the camera. I want to continue the counter ... forever ...

Thanks,

Michael.

1. Go in PLAYBACK MENU -> DISPLAY MODE -> check in HISTOGRAM
2. Go in CUSTOM SETTING MENU -> FILE NO. SEQUENCE -> choose ON.

Enjoy

Ole Bo Jensen!

Thanks so much. One other question regards print quality. While my print images are very sharp, I feel like the images to the screen are a bit soft. Any comments?

This image was changed in Adobe and set at 85% quality and saved for web format. Slight crop.


Thanks,

Michael.

With regards to image sharpness, it's an unspoken rule that you should apply sharpening to images that come out of your DSLR. If you dont have the time for this, then turn on in-camera image sharpening to +1 or +2 (max).

Some ex&les of why you should do this:

Hi Michael

What are your camera-sharpening settings?

I personally use MEDIUM HIGH sharpening on my D200.

Your image seems to be sharp enough overall, but in NEUTRAL sharpening, I feel that the D200 files needs too much post-processing.

Yes, I agree about the post processing work required. I have the same problems with my Contax ND also. I think it is a "digital thing".

Do you use Adobe or RGB for your color space? I've been using the Adobe setting. I took a quick look, and did not find where I can set the "in camera sharpening". I'll have to get the manual out.

My only problem w/ using the "in camera sharpening" is that I use Genuine Fractals to blow up the images for prints 2x3 feet in size. It warns against using any sharpening ... or artifacts are created. I'll have to experiment.

I am testing the "Vivid" setting to reduce the mutness of the color pallete and also have turned on the Noise Reduction feature for higher ISO settings.

Any other advice?

Thanks,

Michael.

I also went and turned on the auto number sequence. But it looks like you can not give it a starting number? Am I wrong?

Thanks,

Michael.
