Upload & Sell: Off
I wrote my first post ever, about my lens selection for a trip to Cuba, and about the D600 a couple of days ago.
My account was subsequently blocked - the post is at page 2467 - don't know why. I wrote to Fred and asked, but no reply. Feels a little sad as I have been reading more or less every post on this thread since Curtis started it and it feels like my second home...
These are the lenses I started writing about:
Anyway, I just signed in under another name because I wanted to thank you all for the welcome.
However, I don't really feel like staying so I post this, and a few pictures, and then I'm off.
Don't weep for me.
stimulating first post .
I have a D800E - and I'm one of those people who like to shoot raw and like to set ISO manually - was interested to hear that I've missed the point of this camera................
sounds like horrible statement I made there... my point was that if you set your ISO manually, shoot raw and 'develop' your pictures in your computer, you are basically doing what the D600 and D800 seems to be capable of doing all by themselves. And as I am trying to show, with flying colours, sometimes perhaps even better than we can do ourselves!
Today, I have added new posts to the blog I set up trying to cover the D600, at http://nikonsystem.blogspot.com/
For those of you who have not seen it, I basically happened to stumble on a few aspects of the D600 and D800 jpeg behaviour which were not covered anywhere else on the Internet so I decided to share that with as many as possible.
Another example today - from the Camera Obscura in Havana, jpeg SOOC, Nikkor 35mm f/1,4 Ai-S shot at 2,0:
And the same jpeg, but with shadows lifted:
I will try to post another few pictures separately and then I'm off
