I moved from a D7000 to D600--very easy transition. They pretty much share the same controls and I love the U1 and U2 user settings. Getting the better ISO performance is worth it. I also feel like there is a bit more dynamic range and I'm more easily able to rescue my photos in Lightroom.
I like the F3-X. It's durable and looks great. The strap is probably one of the only downsides but that can be somewhat remedied by the bulky strap pad.
I usually fit a d7000, 70-200, 17-50, SB-600/SB-800 and a prime.
Looks pretty much like any other DSLR stereo microphone. I like that this comes with an off-camera bracket.
I bought one of these:
"Azden High-performance(SMX-10) Stereo Condenser Microphone" and am quite happy with it.
I agree with boykee, third party walk-around lenses are pretty good. My first choice would be the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (maybe VC) and the second would be the Sigma HSM f2.8 OSM.
I think 16-35 isn't a wide enough range for a walk-around. But that's just the way I shoot.
I've owned both and kept the NON BIM version. It's faster focusing. If I were in the market today, however, I'd look at the BIM with VC. Dunno if the newer models with the VC focus faster than the first generation BIMs.
I went to the Rolex Motorsports Reunion on last Friday and had a great time checking out the vintage race cars. I've never shot moving cars before so it took me a while to figure out the settings to use for panning. Those old F1 cars are really hard to keep up with. Old 70-200VR did a pretty...
Tamron 17-50 and Nikon 35 f1.8 are my night lenses. I like how light the lenses are. I'd pick up a gorillapod SLR. If I had the 17-50VC, I might not even need the gorillapod. That lens is realllyyyy tempting me. I can't, however, give up the 17mm. Though it's a little slower, which is fine in...
The 70-200 is my favorite lens by far (sharpness, bokeh, cool factor, etc..). Unfortunately, I rarely bring it with me if I'll be walking around because it's quite heavy. On top of that.. I think the Domke is really uncomfortable to carry around compared to bags such as the Tamrac Velocity 7X. I...
I just took this picture to show the bulge.
Sorry I can't show the bag with my D80 in it (I only have one camera). I traveled with the D80, 70-200, Tamron 17-50 and SB-600. Everything was pretty quick to access and wasn't too heavy (I use the post-office style shoulder pad).
Anyhoo, It's a...
These things are always hard to quantify via forum responses. Check out the reviews/previews on dpreview.com They have a bunch of samples.
The D300s is a worthy upgrade.
Correct, the commander will trigger your SB-600 off camera.
It's a VERY tight squeeze. I had to stretch out my lens pockets a little bit to get it to fit. The lens is really long and protrudes a few inches. The flap will "cover" it but there will be a huge and obvious bulge. It's really never a problem but because it's such a tight squeeze, it takes me a...
Great bag. I have the same bag in sand as well. Mine is really dirty, though. It's also a little blue from rubbing up against my jeans.
Anyone have some advice on how to clean it? I threw it into the washing machine with mild detergent but it didn't help much.
I have the post office looking...
Do you have photoshop or some kind of layering software? I'd recommend trying some post-processing techniques.
You could try to take multiple exposures and use the different layers to selectively light your car.
anyhoo, i like the pictures anyways. Black cars are esp. difficult to photograph...
