Processing is always a question of my current mood - this one is a rather simple conversion of an underexposed shot.


Beautiful work with the 16 Georg.

Dont know if this is of interest to anybody.

I assume it was the camera he used for product (Primarily watches) photography

Go to: blog.mingthein.com

The ultimate Nikon D700 body kit Ė US$1,700 excluding shipping, but including paypal fees
Shortly after buying the camera, I modified it personally to be perfectly set up for manual focus work. This means that the mirror zero position has been aligned, and the focusing screen shimmed: what you see in the finder is exactly what the sensor sees. I then went one step further and added a type J screen (extra snappy, central split prism) from the Nikon F6; this is not a simple modification because it doesnít fit. The screen has to be cut down and filed to fit in the D700′s focusing screen carrier. The camera also includes:
DK-17M 1.2x magnifying eyepiece;
MB-D10 battery grip and adaptors for EN-EL3e batteries, AA batteries and the optional EN-EL4a adaptor;
Two extra EN-EL3e batteries;
Two EN-EL4a batteries and a MH-21 charger Ė this lets you get to 8fps and extends battery life dramatically;
New, original, unused strap;
All boxes and papers (except for the MH-21, thatís from my busted D2H).
Itís been used professionally but taken care of. Shutter actuations are slightly below 70k, but it was checked recently by NPS and given a clean bill of health. (The D700 is rated to 150,000, so thereís plenty of life left in it yet.) Otherwise, itís cosmetically perfect with no rub marks, paint, scratches etc. Ė I believe in taking good care of my equipment.
Youíre probably wondering why Iím selling it. Simple answer: I need the D800Eís file size to keep commercial clients happy, and I hardly do any reportage anymore. I felt it should go to a good home and somebody who would appreciate it rather than sitting folorn in a drybox. This is the ideal camera for manual focus lens aficionados! I have a full long-term review here, and a great many of the images on this site were shot with it.

I'll drop one photo on the thread before heading off to bed. I was surprised to see these white blossoms open with winter still at hand. Of course, the warm days we've been experiencing surely has the plants thinking spring has arrived. This was shot at f/2.8 with the 135 f/2 AI-s.

Lovely little blossoms Curtis. Those greens against the blue sky really pop. I keep looking around for here, but nothing so far.

Great work everyone, I'm sorry I can't comment more frequently to go into depth about some of the fantastic shots.

I braved what has turned out to be the worst storm Toronto's had in a few years to get a snowy picture of the entrance gates to Trinity Bellwoods Park. This is a stitch with the 105mm f/1.8 AI-s at f/2.8. Some sloppiness if you pixel peep, but otherwise I'm a fan of how this turned out.

Resuming my old slides digital scanning, this is the White-eared Opossum taken with my old and trusty FM body + 50mm f/2 (dont recollect if K or ai version, anyway, same optics).There is the possibility I used a 2X TC to deliver a 100mm f/4, but I am not sure.

The opposum is so cute! You really do an amazing job both in capturing the shot as well as the slide conversion.

Georg, I am totally loving your 16mm shots and the post work totally works for me. I hear what you are saying about my shot being kind of busy, I didn't have any other opportunities to shoot that day and this one was just a test shot.

asiostygius, I don't know why I didn't notice this sooner that you are a D7000 shooter too...! I am going to go back through your posts and probably be hitting you up for tips as I love so many of your shots and I thought you were shooting on a full frame!

Oh man! This is so beautiful! I miss these kinds of views (I used to be a near-pro skier back in the day, have skied all over the world before I got hurt).

Hi gang, eye surgery has me on the photographic sidelines this week, but wanted to echo Curtis' comments on the 28mm 2.8 ais and Philippe's fine use of the lens in his CitroŽn shot.

Since picking up this lens a few months ago, I've really enjoyed using it for landscapes.

Cheers, Jeff.


Great shot Jeff. Is that preserve the one down in San Diego? Good luck with the surgery!

Very nice set Tony. My wife and I both really liked the first. Were you shooting that one wide open?

My friend Natosha is back in town for a little while and was kind enough to come over for a shoot. It was beautiful outside after the storm rolled through, so we took advantage of the nice weather.

#1 and #4 were shot with the 105mm É1.8 and #2 and #3 were shot with the 55mm É1.2.

Strobist Info (Shots 2-4): SB-900 fired into silver reflective umbrella and triggered by Yongnuo 603s.

KEH also has two BGN rated 35/1.4 AIS copies for $399, and $415 (w/ caps). That is a pretty good price, given their typical conservative ratings.
