I’ve just discovered either a D7000 firmware bug, or possibly an undocumented “design feature”………………..
I discovered this in development of my movies package. I wanted to set a custom picture control and then save the “Set picture control” setting to the BIN file via Save settings.
What I’ve discovered is that while Load settings works for all of the in-built Picture Control styles (Standard, Neutral, Landscape, Portrait & Monochrome), it doesn’t work for a custom style, whether that be a file downloaded from the internet, or a modified inbuilt style.
If you set Picture Control to point to any of the custom banks and Save settings to an SD card, after you Load settings (i.e. load a BIN file), Picture Control defaults back to Standard.
p244 of the manual indicates that Picture Control can be saved to the BIN file and there are no caveats documented. This should imply that you should be able to save a custom style into the BIN file.
I’ve raised this issue with Nikon UK Support and am currently waiting for their feedback. So at present I don’t know if this is a bug or it’s simply not possible to Load a BIN file and have it point to a custom Picture Control bank.
I’ll keep you posted as to my findings and what Nikon come back with.
Anyone experienced this already?
