    First shots with my D200

    I went down to the strip with some friends last weekend and I had a chance to use my D200 for the first time. Here are some of the shots that I thought turned out great. Some say that the image quality is the same with the D200 and the D70s, but I have to disagree- man this camera rocks.





    This picture below was intentionally out of focus and under exposed

    Nice pictures, Chris. Is that first picture of Mandalay Bay? I really love that picture, its ashame you couldnt move back a bit to get the top of the structure in the picture!

    I am guessing you are very pleased with your upgrade? How easy is it to use compared to the D70s?

    The first two are really nice pictures, the second one being my favorite because of the extra long exposure to blur the people walking in front of you. I was going to note that the last picture is out of focus, but since it is intentional then it is also a good shot. I always love those long exposures with car lights, gives a good sense of motion.

    Very nice shots, Chris. That D200 really produces some high quality images in your hands.

    I really like that last shot. The intentional misfocussing is a great effect. I'll definitly give that technique a try some day. I find that big blown out screen a bit distracting though, perhaps you could try to clone that away.

    Thanks for the feedback. I was using my Sigma 24-70 for these shots, and I wanted to back up more but then I would have gotten some lamp lights in the picture. Yeah,Vegas is definatley a great place to practice your night time photography. Just a word of caution: if you start taking pictures and have a camera that looks expensive, if security sees you they will ask you to stop taking pictures on their property, even though tons of tourists walk by and snap a picture on their little point and shoot digital cameras- what a joke. On this particular night, TNB and a friend of his joined me and we had a lot of fun taking pictures of the Stardust, as they will be knocking it down soon, and yes, we where chased off by at least 2 security guards that night!
