    Thanks Mike, Giles.
     
  12. Obelix,

    I am going to Alaska the end of August.

    I have a D2x and taking my 70-200.

    Were you using a tri-pod, or mono-pod.
    Any hand held shots?

    I took only my tripod (Feisol CF + Kirk BH3). Almost all my 70-200 shots were handheld. I was either on a moving bus, train or boat most of the time.

    Most shots you see here were shot hand hold, most of them on a slow moving bus. I switched on Active VR and prayed it works - it did :)

    The Mt.Denali shots were on a tripod, VR off. With the benefit of hindsight, I could have used a monopod in the train and the boat, just to take the weight off.

    With a D2X, I am sure you need some support before your arms wear off.

  14. Obelix,

    If most were hand held it proves D2x can take a great shot minus a tri-pod.

    I have a great Carbon fiber monopod I'll take for sure. I will bring the tripod as back-up. If you hand-held most, my monopod can't hurt to cart it around.

    Thanks for the reply. After seeing your pictures I can't wait to go.......
     
  15. Hello Anand -

    Very evocative set of photos.

    FWIW, my faves are #s 3, 5, and 9 - they each have great tonal ranges and compositions.

    Thanks for showing these.

    Great photos. I especially like the black and whites; they seem just right for the subject. I also like the tight vertical format in number 1, and the color in 5.
