    The thing about turning on D-lighting, is, it underexposes the shot a
    little bit, and that's locked into the raw file. I still use it though,
    to get a little more accurate histogram on the back of the camera while
    shooting.

    I believe there was an incarnation of d-lighting that was only available
    in-camera with the D80 presumably in-camera to protect the third party
    code from reverse engineering. But they discontinued that type,
    presumably tired of paying royalties. That said, I wouldn't be surprised
    if NX2 included a fine substitute, better than photoshop.

    I know, I have a Nikon with D lighting... also my Sony DSLR has it...

    So far I haven't been "totally impressed" by it, but it does help.

    I haven't had the chance to really try out the Nikon, but I will!! I think it
    has curve adjustment in it, but I've only had it for 2 weeks... a very complex
    camera... I'll get to it!

    I tried some D-lighting shots today...

    It certainly works for sunny snow pics, but there is still a danger of burn-out.

    I tried to fix a photo in Adobe but couldn't quite get it... the D-light seems
    better. But I'm not an Adobe expert, and my old version doesn't know the new
    Nikon RAW format.

    Oh, it's certainly not perfect, and RAW (plus time to process) would do
    better, but Active D-lighting is "on" all the time on my camera (D5000).
    A welcome enhancement.

    Cheers,
