    JPEG fine?

    in my business, I shoot around 750 images in 3hrs. I have customers waiting at my trailer wanting to see those images. They buy no larger than 8 X 10 and for the most part only know good shots, not good photographs. So there is just no time to handle RAW.

    JPEG fine?

    So Bruce, are you telling me that on the low light question. I will or will not see any differance in JPG fine to JPG normal?

    JPEG fine?

    Thank You all. I'm a rodeo photographer and sell on site. Although quality is up there, speed seems to take over most of the time. Thanks

    JPEG fine?

    Not more work, more to work with. Cant go RAW because of time and file space. Just thought better jpegs might help in low light.

    JPEG fine?

    Heres my question, a dumb one but mine. I'm shooting in low light (ISO 6400-8000) with a D3S. Raw is not an option. Will I get better results shooting fine over normal or will I just have more to work with in Photosshop if I bump to fine? i hope this makes sence!

    D3s Problem?

    New D3s, I have only shot it a few times. Some times when I push the button to review a shot I get nothing. Somtimes have to push it several times to see picture. Somtimes have to turn camera off and back on to see shot? Any suggestions?

    Tamron 17-50

    What if you shoot in DX mode on the camera? My question is Can I use this lens succesfully on this body. I have no issue useing the DX mode on the camera. I just need a very reasonable priced wider angle lens for very little work.

    200mm F2 Rodeo

    You would be amazed at how many pictures I sell because of who, or what is going on in the background.

    200mm F2 Rodeo

    The bull riding shot was at f3.5. Most action in bull riding happens within 20ft of the gate so a blured background can be hard to acheive.

    nikon 2oomm f/2.0 in stock

    Even at that price, I'm thinking about buying one. I think in my case it would work for many of my indoor rodeos & bull rideings. I used a lot of primes in my film days so I think I can re adjust.

    Dumb Question?

    I have been useing a 70-300 4.5 5.6 for both my day and night work,but it has a little problem allways finding focus at night. I have a new 70-200 2.8 comeing for my night work and I hope that does the trick.
  23. D

    Dumb Question?

    So my camera will not be able to find focus any better at f2 than at f5.6?
  24. D

    Dumb Question?

    Will a camera be able to focus better in low light at f2.8 than it would at say f7.1?

    6400 ISO Baseball Redone

    A while back I tried shooting my Canon at ISO 3200 and they looked like they where printed on sand paper. Maybe the point is that some of use new to the D3 are still amazed that at that ISO you can still get marketable work.

    First Rodeo post.

    I shot the bareback rider at f5.6 and the other 2 at f4. As for the getting the backgrounds to blur I agree they would stand out better, but in my market the customers like to see their buddies in the background and the committees want to read the sponsors signs and banners. It maks my job a bit...

    Ok I'm going to try and post a couple of pictures, hope they come through. This was my firstshow useing the D3, therefore my first with a Nikon.
