Adjustments and registration of Picture Controls
Contrast

The level of contrast can be set precisely in increments of 0.25* from -3 to +3. [A] (Auto) can be selected so that the camera automatically adjusts the contrast according to each shooting situation. When set to the minus side, the image looks softer. When set on the plus side, the image becomes harder. A minus setting is recommended when shooting portraits in bright daylight or if you think there may be overblown highlights. A plus setting is suitable for when shooting a distant subject covered with mist. If you want to achieve a nostalgic-looking image with a soft and gentle feel, use a weaker setting. When you require clear and crisp images, make it stronger.

*Only available with the D810 or cameras released after the D810 and Capture NX-D (as of June 26, 2014).
