OK, I have been using a Nikon D70 for about 4 years now, and it was time. I just picked up a new D90. The pictures you see here are unaltered. The grey-looking photos are the D70(#1 and #4), and the brighter are the D90(#2 and #3).
They were each taken on the "A" setting with an aperture of 3.2, matrix metering, no exposure compensation, with the on-camera flash, in auto White Balance, ISO 200.
I guess I just need some reassurance about my purchase, and some advice about how to go about fixing a few things;
#1. The D90 pictures look very faky-digital to me, am I going nuts?
#2. The D70 pictures have problems with skin-tones, but it's like the D90 is way overdoing it, trying to compensate for the lighting. Like messing with the contrast of the pictures? I don't know. Check out the red color of his shirt. It's more accurate in the D70 photos.
If you could give me any setting advice, I'd really appreciate it. I am just not a fan of the over-processed, digitally altered look.
