Yes, but not from Nikon. They have discontinued the camera in lieu of the D40/x. Now you can still find them on eBay, and some "around the corner" photo shops, but they are getting thinned out. Many that I am seeing on eBay are there because people are moving up to the D80 or D200.

It takes just a little bit of tinkering with to make it do what it ought to do. On the menu, go to "Optimize Image" then go to "Custom." On the "Saturation" make it "Moderate." On the "Color Mode" make it "Adobe RGB." I am attaching a picture of my results. The left column is the camera's standard setting. The right column is the enhanced setting. You can enhance it more than this if you like. The resulting enhancements are now just like the items I photographed.
Can anyone tell me whether these setting affect photos taken in RAW? The manual doesn't say. I would say no, but not for certain.

I wouldn't be able to tell you for sure, but I'd probably go with a no as well--though I don't think it matters too much, I end up post processing most if not all of the pictures I share and would easily be able to fix saturation and color, etc. in Photoshop.
