Active D-Lighting
Matrix metering is recommended (
0 116). When Active D-Lighting is on, 
uneven shading may be visible with some subjects, noise (randomly-
spaced bright pixels, fog, or lines) may appear in photographs taken at 
high ISO sensitivities, the capacity of the memory buffer drops, and 
additional time is required to record images. Note that Active D-Lighting 
is not available at ISO sensitivities of Hi 0.3 or above. The Brightness and 
Contrast Picture Control settings (
0 173) can not be adjusted while 
Active D-Lighting is in effect.
