It's worth the side trip, there's a lot of neat stuff along the way from "civilization" too. :smile:
You have a 50/50 chance that the mountain may not be visible even from JRO. I have been out there and you couldn't see one end of the observation platform from the other. :eek:
Is that the benchmark? Overpowering the sun? :smile:
With some thought about modifiers and placement, you can easily do this with a Quadra. I have done it on a number of occasions.
If you're going to be doing that on a regular basis, I would look for something with at least 1000 watts...
I shoot a D3 and Mamiya/Leaf medium format combo. Only thing that annoys me from time to time are the differences in the controls, but it's no worse than shooting Nikon and Canon.
I was so close to nabbing a D3x, but the MF deal was too good to pass up. :smile:
I've had some spirited discussions with other photographers before, but I can't recall anyone coming right out and insulting me.
But I usually ask the loud people with Canon gear if the internet, TV, or a sales person convinced them to buy what they did. :biggrin:
I'm not feeling the love for either of these lenses, price notwithstanding. I'm not even sure if I would be tempted if the price was less than $500.
Now if they had released an 85mm 1.2, I would be pre-ordering. :biggrin:
It must be clean living, but I have never had anything like this happen to me. :biggrin: The longest any of my stuff has been gone to Melville is eight days.
Anyone remember the "silent recall" of the D2h? Mine made it there and back in six days during the middle of December shipping...
Test results on the internet (or waiting for the DwhateverX model) aren't going to capture the images that are out there RIGHT NOW.
I still routinely meet folks making money with their D1X cameras. :biggrin:
Y'all's mileage may vary.
I made my decision to stay with Nikon because I just cannot stand that damn wheel on Canon cameras.
So no, I wouldn't go with the C brand if I was just starting out. :biggrin:
Your mileage will vary, I'm sure.
I live 15 minutes from this race track, so my interest in F1 has never been very high.
Just my opinion, but F1 will never have the following here in the states that it enjoys elsewhere. There are too many other things competing for the American fan dollar. :biggrin:
Some interesting responses . . . and maybe some RAW snobbery? :wink:
I shot RAW only for years because I don't make prints smaller than 11x16 as a rule.
Nowadays I put together an online gallery of 'rushes' after a trip or event, and resizing a jpg to get that ready just takes less time...
