    Picture of the day

    I did a Marilyn Monroe inspired shoot with a friend of mine a couple of weeks back. In addition to shooting with my D850, and. I pulled out my N90s and ran a roll of film through it. Using the Nikkor 28-105 f/3.5-4.5D, shot on Kodak Ektar 100, and converted to black and white in PS.

    Thank you all - So we did a thing (as the kids say). Lauren came up with this idea for doing a Marilyn inspired shoot... All are shot with the D850. The first two images used the 105mm f/1.4E and the third image used the 70-200mm f/2.8 FL-E

    "Huge price drop" on D5 and D810

    This. So much this. I have to add that no camera has ever felt like an extension of my hand like the D5.

    I enjoy shooting the 105 more with the D5 than the D850. The D5 just always nails focus at f/1.4

    Thanks, Mitchell. I was able to get some full body shots with the 105 in the studio, so it didn't seem too long. Sometimes, I'll prefer my Sigma 135 when I'm doing three quarter, or head shots. One issue I did find with this lens on my D850, is that It would sometimes miss focus at f/1.4...

    Firmware update for D850

    Strangely, I experienced this issue with my 105 f/1.4, but when I switched to the Sigma 135 f/1.8, I didn't have this issue with the same sensor.

    I love this lens - It matches very well with my D5. I've found that I can manage handholding this beast if I take off the tripod collar. That removes a lot of the weight.

    D5 and D850 Files

    There have been times I've used my D5 instead of my D850 for things like portrait shoots, because no camera has ever felt as good in my hands as the D5 has. I was perfectly happy with using the D5 for portraiture, and in low light, I feel more secure with the focus of the D5

    Nikon D5 - Why so few discussions about it?

    I bought my D5 two months ago, and in all of the years I've been shooting, no camera has felt like an extension of my hand like this one. There have been times where I probably should have used my D850 (portrait shoots), but I didn't because the D5 feels so damn good in my hands.

    Showcase Nikon 105mm f/1.4 E

    I just picked up this lens, and tested it out shooting basketball last night. I pushed things a bit, shooting for a while at 1.4 to see if the focus would hold up on my D5.

    I have had the 28-105 for over 20 years, and it has served me well, as evidenced by my posts in this thread. I just bought a D850, It can't be usable on a 46mp body, can it? Playing with the Nikkor 28-105 by David G. Whitham, on Flickr

    Nikon 300 pf case ?

    I keep my 70-200 and Sigma 50-100 (which is about the size) in a LowePro lens sleeve that came with one of my Street and Field bags. Maybe something like that would work.

    Thanks Mike. The lighting was very dim, so I had to shoot at such a high ISO. I didn't want to smooth out the details in the dancer, so the image looks much better in B&W with the resulting grain.

    Which Prosumer Models After D300 Drive non-AFS Lenses?

    I know that it's FX, but the D600 has the screw drive, as well. My progression was D50 -> D90 -> D600 -> D500. All have the screw drive, and accepted my venerable 28-105 quite nicely

    Thanks! I was right on the sideline, and the players were between the numbers and the hashmarks, so I think about 20 feet. I was zoomed to 155mm, and there was very little cropping in the final image.

    D500 Noise

    That will probably the way I go as soon as I pick up some XQD cards. I'm currently using just the SD card slot, so I will probably just go jpeg in those situations for now. either way, I'll definitely be using jpegs with Nikon's secret sauce when I shoot these games. With this kind of quality...

    I'm starting to think the same thing. I'm really leaning towards shooting jpeg when I'm in these low light situations.
