The photo is crap. You need at a minimum a D600, if not a D800 for the shot to be worth anything. You definitely need an FX camera.
Does that help? LOL

Thanks I needed that.

With my D80 he is just a black spot with eyes.

Interesting. Any chance of a side by side comparison (D600 v D80) -- if you can get your cat to sit still long enough?

The shots being posted make me look forward to visiting this site.

What we relly need is a side-by-side of a D600 and D7000... shot at 1/8000.

Seriously though it would be interesting.

Finally getting the hang of the D7000. An amazing camera compared to my old D70. Went for a quick shoot at Moss Landing. This is our summer (for a couple of weeks... we hope).

DPR, my point... exactly.

Not sure why Nikon throttled back the D600. It does not make sense to me. For $2100 one should at least get D7000 shutter speed and flash sync. performance.

Falconest, definately agree.

I'm not really seeing the real benefit of FX over DX yet.

Have you ever shot full frame before? Depends on your photographic needs but full frame definitely has advantages.

Have you ever shot full frame before? Depends on your photographic needs but full frame definitely has advantages.

Not digital, other than playing with a D700, but of course shot 35mm film (analog FX ;)) for many years.

But while FX vs DX seems to be a no brainer, I'm not so sure that is true... and posted photos really cannot do justice to most shots.

I'm not trying to harsh everybodies buzz, just trying to analize the value of spending twice as much + the cost of new lenses.

Back on subject...

Here is a shot with the 43-86 f/3.5 (AiS) on the D7000. Seems to work very well, and the D7000 is very accomodating, but man does it have a long minimum focus distance (~1 meter). I never noticed how my manual focus skills have faded until now. :)

After converting to a jpg and uploading to photobucket doesn't look so good. What's the best way to post and still keep decent IQ?

D70FAN
10-04-2012, 08:05 PM
I post mine to my smugmug gallery then down-load it as an XLarge image.

I suppose that you could just reduce the JPEG image size (i.e. shoot in NEF+JPEG), and dpi, in PS then save it at about 7-8 quality. That should knock it down to a manage-able size, and still retain poostable IQ.

Note: You probably could have set the apature to f/4.0-f/8.0 on that shot and still had plenty of shutter-speed headroom, while using the ultra sweet spot on the 50 f/1.8.

I already have FX lenses as it was the only way to get the quality I wanted as damn Nikon never released a decent DX lineup. so I'm sick of lugging around heavy glass and not getting the max benefit from it, this is why I've gone FX. I don't particularly care that the body is a bit dearer.

I too am running a 19" monitor (with ATI Radeon graphics). I recently discovered that ATI had put out an updated driver, allowing me to increase the resolution to 1280 x 1024, which enables me to see larger photos on this site with no problem. Perhaps a driver update check is in order?

Again, I never said they don't take good pictures... just not a real improvement over the D70 at the time, and it did not like to focus using my Sigma lenses. Come to think of it sometimes would not focus (even in decent light) with my Nikkors either.

Not a problem on this end either. Same situation with the D70. Still like the results, just not the limited ISO and 1.9" LCD. I use it as a second body when I think I'll need a second lens. As in your case the D7000 fills the day-to-day tasks at this point with a lot more versatility, and I can finally use the old 43-86 f/3.5 AiS. Heck I still use my old 3mp D990 for macro shots.

And trying to get the focos right at f2.8 and getting the right angle/pose at the same time took about 80 shots and some cursing before I got it right :) And at ISO1600 the NEF's from the D700 keeps impressing me with how much you can push the files in photoshop without getting any obtrusive noise. I'm having more and more doubts if I can sell the d700 and just have the d5100.

Thank's . I had just put my 24-85 lense on when this guy showed up. So I put the 150-500 back on. I was lucky he flew around us two times. When he flew around the tree he came in straight at me then he turned and the sun lit up his wing I took the shot. I thought I was facing into the sun to much when I took it but I guess not. As a landscape it had to much sky but as a portrait crop made the composition.

This is what I was taking pictures of. I hope the colors get better.

It's a very good shot. Composition, color, etc. sometimes the image on the computer, just don't match what we saw through the viewfinder. Othertimes we pull a "framer" from the rubble. The hard copy print will sometimes surprise us as well.

Recently I was on a vineyard shoot, both for posterity, and a label image). The shot used on the label was not one of my favorites but the client loved it... not much on the computer, but on the label it does indeed look darn good.

The tiger shot is a very good image, and probably would look great printed @ 13 x 20 (or larger)...

Veteran's Day in the US. Only one shot since I can't post an album. :(
Hat is that of a recently Separated USAF vet. Taken at the Veteran's Day service at my church.
Kind of a sad day for me, Friday I lost a close friend who would have been at this service as a Veteran of the USAF.

I know the feeling... several of my friends from school are listed on the wall in my post and additionally some have gone, too soon, over the years.

The only real positive is that many of us survived to remember their service and sacrifice.

Sorry for your loss. A very poignant image. Thanks.

Thanks D70FAN... I want to retain the coconut tree; that's why I didn't crop further. But looking back your suggestion might work too.

Is it Russian only in name? Not enough to ID it with.
I'm more familiar with the US aircraft during the SE Asian war years; and growing up in Cambodia I can identify a T28 from anywhere.
The T-28s caused devastating damages to the Khmer Rouge commies. Pity we didn't have enough of them back then.

Thanx for the link, looks like you had some good planes there. To Americans the plane you call a 'Harvard' is called a 'Texan'. Built a model of the T28 once, had retractable gear and a sliding canopy, cool thing back then. I think that the Yak was somewhat styled after the Mustang, has similar clean lines.

I'm sorry guys -- I was in a hurry and just grabbed the shot off my hard drive. Whilst I realised it was large, when using Chrome as a browser the size is automatically adjusted to fit the screen, so I thought that happened with all browsers. I've just looked at the site with IE, and yes, there's a lot of scrolling involved! I haven't got FireFox so I don't know how that treats large photos.

If you haven't tried Chrome, give it a go -- you never know, you might like it! :)
