I have a D4 now and my D300 isn't going anywhere out of my hands. I actually just paired it back up with the 18-200 (gen 1!) that I bought with it since my 24-70 is now permanently mounted to the D4 =) The 18-200 is a badass little walkabout lens and the D300 has a ton of life left in it.
The included reader sent files to my current top of the line MB Air and 2008 era Mac Pro faster than any CF card ever has. Could it be faster with TB or USB3? Perhaps. But it's not worth missing in the meantime.
Just want to be clear on this: If I set my High Speed Shooting FPS to 11 it will not meter and focus past image 1, but if I set it to 10 or lower it will continuously adjust for each shot, there is nothing more I need to set other than max speed, correct?
I'm moving from D300 to a d4, big leap but I think I have all my settings locked in, perhaps even better than what the D300 allowed me as far as reversing dials goes.
Two things struck me tho:
- On my D300 whenever VR engaged it was very obvious that the frame would suddenly snap steady, which...
Sound like all preorders are getting the card and reader.
If you are an amazon customer watch your gold box, d4s have been showing up there very very rarely for some. Took a few emails but I got Amazon to credit the difference for me, which is flipping awesome,
Hi again everyone, wasn't planning on it but now looks like I might try to bring my folks over for a quick look tomorrow. Sad to hear that numbers are low, I'd still like to clobber that guy from last year, even if he wasn't 100% the reason for the drop off. Good luck out there, enjoying the...
I shot a jet trasiting in front of the Super Moon =)
My best regular shot at it too:
Just like the last two times I wasn't expecting to have a plane jump in front of my moon shots, they just...
Agreeing with Edge, seems beautifully shot but like a lot of the D7000 videos I've seen it seems a bit 'stroby'.
Wonder what kind of aperture you'd get if you lock it at 1/60th or so instead of locking aperture at f11...
Sorry that your shots didn't get the attention they deserved because of the conversation regarding the dipstick who has been disturbing the birds, but I really like this sequence. Thank you for sharing them!!!
I'm pretty sure I was chatting with both you guys this afternoon, I was the fat guy in the giants jacket there for about an hour.
Randy was a most gracious host and I chit chatted with him before you guys got there, wasn't trying to be rude, I just didn't wanna force my way into too many...
Yup, I've been here for a few months now living in hotels, gonna go to Conowingo today and take my chances.
On post I've seen:
8 and 10 point bucks
Tons of Buzzards
Tons of Turkeys
But no shooting ops. =( I THINK I saw a Baldie once but it flew past too fast to be...
I walked in there one night to try to get a bite to eat and walked right out.
$22 for their lame (compared to AC and Vegas) buffet and the sandwich shop right next to it was just as over priced.
I didn't put a dime into a single machine either. If you are a slot buff you might like it but...
I've been BRACed to APG Maryland, looking forward to getting over to Conowingo to shoot the eagles now that I can no longer see my beloved Ft. Monmouth Ospreys every day =( Is there a good 'noobies guide' for folks like me who have never been there but who want to see the eagles?
Not really. On days where the Jewish guys are working you can take a bus to B&H and I think Calumet but not sure on that. Definitely not on Friday tho. I think MWPE might sell some stuff tho. The makers don't sell anything tho. You can get GREAT magazine deals tho...
Yeah, I took em at their word cause I knew I was one of the first folks to get it and wanted to have some fun doing the first unboxing to hit the net. My pictures just hit the front page of Engadget and I'm going to have over 100k flickr views today so it paid off! Lots of folks are checking...
Be gentle on my server please, right click once and save locally!
Be kind on my ego as well, I suck as a videographer!
Will have some tripod locked down shots of Ospreys on Monday that...
Theres 500 pages of manual in the box plus chargers and other stuff. I DID tell them the box seemed light but they told me it was sealed so nobody had been in it...
I put 7 unedited full size jpgs straight-outta-camera at the tail end of the set...
Here's a couple Raw NEFS for you guys to play with, nothing special since I was just hacking around the house and because the Nikon Software blows so completely:
