I can not get past my fear of creating my own set of custom functions. I never did with my Nikon SLR either. I need to do it however. I need one setup for tripod tele work. One for landscape. One for walking around. etc. As it is now I am often in the SCP changing lots of settings and I often forget one or two and blow some shots. I'm not skeered of custom functions. I can do most of those ( although I do not know what 'gradation' is ) I've changed most of the mode CFs as per most recommended suggestions to come up with a neutral tif to allow for Photoshop post processing. Of course there is no RAW program yet but I'm just using my jpegs as cheap RAWs now. Thanks for any suggestions.
