    :smileys: I will get it on Friday and what to start to look into what programming I should do to it. I have seen that the camera out the box needs a little TLC to get the best from it and what to know what you did to yours after you got it and tweeked it.
    Thanks

    As far as tweeking goes, it's best to shoot raw and play around with it to see what you'll get when you apply settings. It's really how you want it to look. I definately suggest using the Adobe RGB color space. Gives you a greater range of colors...

    I like to turn down the contrast and sharpening then apply it later.

    Good luck! and have lots of fun :D

    Once you learn the camera try out some custom curves. It tends to underexpose things by about .7 stops. Instead of compensating and loosing the highlights, you can install a curve to bring out the midtones for a proper exposure.
