My dog Spike is sleeping.
SB 900 flash, 100-300 AI-S
manual focus lens @ f11
D700 Nikon Camera
Spike, with a cheap $75 manual lens
I used a cheap, older Nikon 100mm f2.8
E series AIS manual focus lens, D3 body
D610 Body (Gallery, click it)
The Nikon D610 is an entry level FX camera
replaced the D600.
I have used the D610 for several months, absolutely love this camera!
D610 is a damn good camera, and I love the very quiet shutter, even @ 6 FPS.
Nikon 70-300 AF-S VR with TC14EII
I used my modified 1.4X converter*, TC14EII and the Nikon 70-300 AF-S VR f4.5~5.6
to make a few photos. The lens becomes (roughly) an 100-420 f5.6~8 effective lens.
Sharpness is pretty good in the lower zoom range, but at the 300 setting (effective 420),
it becomes soft. Focus is actually quick and snappy, I was surprised.
No reason to use this combo, just did it for the hell of it.
3 samples, 2 photos of each sample. An edited photo followed by a full frame crop.
Another example we gain is this; it shows we always need to view 100% full frame.
A resized, edited and sharpened image may hide the fact the photo is not exposed sharp!
Often I ask other shooters 'How sharp is the image full frame' and this is why I ask that!
Always take a look at your images at 100% size, sharpness is first step to a great photo.
Nikon D800 camera body used for all these images. This set shot .jpg, one of the few times I have exposed jpeg images
