The strength of a subject’s contours can be precisely adjusted in increments of 0.25* from 0 (no sharpening) to 9. [A] (Auto) can be selected so that the camera automatically adjusts the sharpening according to each shooting situation. The lower the number, the softer the image will look. The higher the value, the sharper the image. If you want to make a portrait of a woman or a child look softer, for example, set the level to a lower number. If you want to emphasize the sharpness of some steep mountains, set it to a higher value. The example shown here lets you check how feathers will look softer or their details appear sharper.

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