Nothing special about this photo, and I will post better images in the near future, but for now, this image will have to do: D700 + 24-70
Having used the 5D a week earlier and really liking its image quality, I am very pleased that the D700 fairs just as good if not better... taken at Red Rock Canyon Ranger station.

Hey Chris,

A D700, huh? Cool.

I noticed you have your pictures on SmugMug. I'm looking for a place to put business pictures here shortly. Is there a way to protect the image so it can't be copied to a computer on SmugMug? I don't want people just downloading or saving the pictures they want instead of buying them, lol. Thanks.

Camerajunkie, yes you can.

It doesn't stop anyone from using Print Screen though.

Usually though if someone is going to buy an image, they would want a print of some kind and not just a downloaded image.

Nice to hear it is on par or better than the 5D. I am anxiously waiting more pics!

Nothing like hopping in the water and taking photos of a female kayaker with a newly released D700 triggering Nikon speedlights using CLS--there is another photo taken with a Nikon D3 of the Nikon photographer taking the photo with a Nikon D700.

Notice how silky smooth the sky is rendered compared to the D200 / D300... I love it.

notice how it also doesnt clip the highlights on the clouds but still exposes the trees below perfectly fine. <3

the d3, (d700 same thing), has a broader DN than the d80, thats why that can be achieved. its also in no small part cos chris is behind the VF. the fuji s5 can do that scene even better; especially the whites.

remember that metering is really just an auto system. if you dont like the results for a scene using matrix, you can always override the metering any time you like by shooting in manual and YOU setting the exposure that works best for your scene and taste. the important point to make here is that there are limitations on how much dynamic range that can actually be achieved by the cameras sensor in a single frame. thats not a nikon d80 thing, or a nikon thing...its just a camera thing.

amazing image (mountains), seems like superb camera, i feel impatient about canon's 6D... if canon ignores its users then i will go D700 most probably, must start saving for glass.

Thanks Rooz and Gin. I am on vacation through mid August so I wont have any weddings until after then, but that won't stop me from tromping around backwoods Utah with my new gear. I will post images when i get back.
