Some Nikon (and Canon) DSLR cameras have Flat picture control. For reference here is the details Flat Flat* provides minimal dramatization while preserving the material characteristics. Compared with Neutral, the finish shows less contrast and does not look lively as it is. When you add adjustment to the image after shooting, overblown highlights, blocked up shadows, or excessive color saturations rarely occur, thus enabling rich tonality of both brightness and color tones. With the wealth of information from highlight to shadow areas, this mode is recommended when you are shooting a scene with post-shoot adjusting in mind. How many of you here have experimented with using flat or neutral? Do you find that the added work is worth the benefits? When shooting portraits, would it be simpler to just use the portrait picture control? I have also calibrated my camera using a ColorChecker Passport and have an adjusted profile. Which color profile do you use? Flat? Adobe's standard Color Profile? Calibrated? Standard? How are your results?
