Active D-Lighting
If On is selected, the camera automatically adjusts Active D-Lighting during shooting 
to preserve details in highlights and shadows, creating photographs with natural 
contrast. Use for high contrast scenes, for example when photographing brightly lit 
outdoor scenery through a door or window or taking pictures of shaded subjects on 
a sunny day. It is most effective when used with 
Matrix metering.
