Made some comments in another post about Clarity control but then noticed a post on another big Nikon site on the subject and well apart from turning into a riot it did not clarify anything ( sorry about the pun) So I thought this subject deserved its own thread. I know this does not affect raw unless you are using NX but you may one day want ot shoot RAW/JPEG so better get prepaired. My experience ..With my D3200/7100/800 I always run Picture control Standard +9 sharp Contrast 0. So when I got the D810 I set the Clarity at 0 assuming it had no effect. The effect was that I thought I had little depth of field as not much of the picture was sharp. Next I tried clarity +5, Standard , sharp +9 and as Severncrossing suggested the whites were a bit burnt. I then tried all the others Landscape portrait Flat and Neutral but using Neutral my wife complained the colours did not match the D7100. So I took one photo on the D7100 and put the same card in the D8100 so it was easy to match. Taking pictures of my grandson who has blondish hair showed at clarity +5 it burnt his hair out badly and could not be recovered. This burningseems to affect white shiney objects the most. I reverted to Standard put the clarity to +1,sharp +9 and then did what I have done with other poor lenses ( ie Sigma 17-35) upped the contrast to +2 This seems to give me what I want with the 28-300 though having spent all this money I question why I am struggling to match the quality of the D7100 !!! ,,A wedding on sunday will show the truth I am interested to know what other D750 and D810 users have found. Is it on DF ?
