    How do I take a 'Dust Off ref.NEF' image with a D100 for use in Capture 4?

    I don't know the D100, (and don't have access to one), but on
    the D70 (2.0 patch level), you select the menu with the wrench icon, and
    scroll down to the "Dust ref photo" entry, and then get the following on
    your display:

    "Take photo of
    white object
    10cm from
    lens"

    follow that instruction, and you are done.

    Note that the "Dust ref photo" appears on the camera's monitor
    as a red and white checkerboard, and is not viewable with normal NEF
    tools -- except those capable of applying the "Dust ref photo", such as
    "Capture 4".

    If your D100 does not have any such menu entry, then it may not
    be capable of taking such a photo -- or it may need a firmware upgrade.

    Good Luck,
    DoN.

    Run Capture 4 and ... now here's the important part ... click on the
    Help menu item, select Contents, look for Image Adjustment, look for
    Image Dust Off. Read what it says.

    I've tried this several times, but the file is not a Dust Off ref.NEF I
    need to know how to take a "Dust Off ref. NEF" image with a D100. The
    instructions in Capture 4, ver 4.3.1 are ambivolent at best concerning
    creating the proper image with the D100. I CANNOT choose to create a
    Dust Off image from the camera menu---it just doesn't exist.
