Today I completed a shoot for Mercury Racing's catalog and 2009 calendar. Here are some quick samples - all taken with D300/70-200VR. Click on images for full size (the board resizes them).
I shoot sports professionally, and I've shot catalogs for Mercury several times, National Geographic TV shows, and others - both with my D200 and D300. I have a D2xs, but it never gets used - I prefer the smaller body of the D200/D300 for my work. For action photography - at least for me - there's no need for a full frame camera. The move to a D700 would be a lateral move for someone like me, not an upgrade.P.S. I hope some realize the D300 is still alive even though the D700 is out. Newness is not necessarily greatness!
Absolutely incredible that you're going 65mph in a boat alongside and the pictures come out so crisp. Amazing!Thanks everyone, I shot them all RAW, using VR in active mode, since I was shooting at 65 MPH from a boat riding alongside. I rarely use VR too, but in times like this, it helps. Panning shots would not have been difficult, but Mercury Marine does not want that - photos that depict too much speed may turn off buyers from a safety standpoint. They are very particular about that sort of thing...
Thanks again everyone
