Sharpening
Control the sharpness of outlines. Select A to adjust sharpening 
automatically according to the type of scene, or choose from values between

higher values to preserve detail in misty landscapes and other low-contrast 
subjects). Not available when Active D-Lighting (0 94) is on; reset if Active 
D-Lighting is activated after value is changed.
Brightness
Choose –1 for reduced brightness, +1 for enhanced brightness. Does not 
affect exposure. Not available when Active D-Lighting (0 94) is on; reset if
