    Re: First out with my new D7500

    What you discovered about the D7200 vs. the D7500 is precisely why I am sticking to the D7200. If my D7200 dies and I can't find a decent D7200, I do not know what I will do!

    So that being said my D7500 is a good backup in a jam body

    Re: First out with my new D7500

    Clovispup and I took a digital photography class last fall. She is a relative newbie, albeit with a very good eye. I, on the other hand, was an old hand at photography, but from the film days, and rather rusty. Anyway, the instructor, who teaches photography at a local college, said to shoot RAW and sort it out post production. We took his advice and never looked back.

    The pictures straight from the camera may not look as good, but they come alive with just a little adjustment in Lightroom. The only time I use JPEG anymore is to downsize and compress a photo for use on the internet. If you want a direct comparison, you could shoot in RAW + JPEG and have both versions of the same image saved right in the camera.

I have always used the Vivid colour setting under Picture Controls in the D7200 but find this setting in the D7500 a bit too colourful so I will try shooting in Standard next time out and see how they look. Tried photographing a swan using Highlight Metering, and then shot without and their is no visible difference in the photo. My lesson learned is something newer is not necessarily better but for my long travels having a 2nd body was a good idea.

    * Normally shoot JPEG but I will shoot in Raw next outing and see how we make out in post editing. I tried this years ago but never saw any visible difference between the files but from what I have been told by many photographers is the difference and flexibility you have in editing, so I'll give it a try.

    The color space Adobe RGB or sRGB will have affect on your raw files, you may want to see if it changes your JEPG also.

    Correction this may or may make a difference depending on your processing software setup.

    Did you try adjusting the Picture Controls? I think you can create a custom one as well. You could reduce the saturation a bit on Vivid.

    I don't know if this will help, but there is an option called "Fine-tune Optimal Exposure" (B6 in the menu). You can adjust the metering in there for Highlight-weighted metering as well as Matrix, Center-weighted and Spot. I can't remember now, but it seems like the default on my D500 was to reduce the exposure some. I think that is why my initial exposures were darker than expected.

    My understanding is that the chosen color space doesn't affect the raw file since it needs to be processed, but it does affect the jPegs and playback images since they are processed in camera. In your processing software, you can chose the color space you want for processing. The color space choice is attached to the file, though, but I read that is to tell the software what to use to process, but that can be changed.

    Am I way off? Color management and printing confuses the hell out of me.

    No, you are not off. The raw file is just camera and sensor information in a file, not viewable as an image and processing must take place for you to see the the RAW data image. As I understand it color space setting does not affect the recorded sensor information. As you stated the RAW software may or may not use the as shot information as a starting point.

    @Needa Thank you. Every time I read anything about color space, I lose IQ points.
