D-Lighting: What Is It?

My Nikon D90 has a function called D-Lighting. What is it used for and when should I use it? Thanks.

Jayne Martin   Take a picture and mess around with the D-Lighting function. It keeps the original pic and makes a copy of the one with the D-Lighting effect!

  D-Lighting software balances contrasty situations by simultaneously softening harsh highlights and boosting shadows to reveal greater detail in both. More advanced Nikon systems offer "Active" D-Lighting, which applies a similar effect when you press the shutter.
