These are the camera settings I use for day-to-day shooting with the Nikon D300.
Please realize that settings essentially tailor the camera to produce output that you prefer, so my settings won’t necessarily work for you.
I use the Vivid Picture Control, modified as follows:
- Sharpening: Auto
- Contrast: Auto
- Brightness: Negative (-)
- Saturation: Auto
(Image was taken with my Canon XSi / 450D)
