Okay i have a stupid Question ! I have a dropbox account and sometimes i would like to download a pic to you guys for some cc . how do i do that ?

Mvh Clouseau

I'm not sure how you would do that from dropbox. Most of us here use on line photo sharing sites such as Flickr, Zenfolio, Piasca or Photobucket. I would suggest going to one of these sites and set up an account. Most are free of charge. Once you do that I would be more than happy to help you figure out how to post those photos here.

Hmmm . . . original post at 8:02 am PST and his impatience shown at 9:30am PST. I guess and hour and a half was too long for him to wait . . .

Thanks Kevin, Jeff, Scott, Rafael and Georg.

Georg, the D600 is "cheap" compared with the D3 construction, but its light weight and sensor are positive points.

As Leighton and other talked about the "ISO 50" vs. ISO 100 of D600, I made a quick test and have noted no differences:

General scene, D600 + 135mm f/3.5 @f8 + tripod + remote trigger, live view focused; greener retangle is DX crop just for reference for other tests I will post further.

Even at 200% viewing I see no difference between ISO 50 (L1) vs. ISO 100 of my D600. Can you detect any difference?

The only differences are (red markings) a slight displacement to the right of histogram, and a tiny increase in file size for the L1 (ISO 50) images at left.

What about D600 vs D3 sensors ?

Of course I used the same lens (135/3.5) + tripod + remote cable and same setups for each camera, and live view was used for best focusing.

No surprise a upsized (to D600) D3 image does not match resolution of the native D600.

On the other hand, downsizing D600 image and both cameras are similar, no surprise too.

Thanks for the comparison Jose. I can't wait to see further tests between the D600 and D7000

I promise, this is the last (Ray is the guilt for this )

What about D600 dx crop vs D7000?

Of course I used the same lens (135/3.5) + tripod + remote cable and same setups for each camera, and live view was used for best focusing. Both at ISO 100.

Well here there is a surprise for me because D600 upsized image stands very well against the native D7000 image, if not contrastier (!?):

No surprise a downsized (to the D600 dx crop) D7000 image looks like similar to the D600 dx crop:

Some day I will replicate to confirm or not the results.

Both cameras at SD picture control and images were straight from the camera, no edit other than resizing through CS5.

Here is one from a 200mm f/4 that I am selling here on the B&S forums . Bought this for my trip to Yosemite to try to shoot the FireFalls, but conditions were not that great for me to sit around for

Rafael, your images are so crisp and clean as those of Philippe. Did you drink cognac too to make these spetacular PP?

Easy does it. As far as I know, there's not very many on here that use dropbox to post photos. It's not that we're ignoring you, it's just that the right person hasn't seen your question. Please have a little bit of patience.


An hour and a half - no reply! You want patience

Nancy - very nice b&w

Curtis (AKA Curtis "Steadyhands") - you get great results handheld. i either drink too much or too little.. how to tell?

Georg - the basket is a beaut.

Ron - we may complain about pollution, coal burners etc but which one of us will give up the benefits? No power, no digital, no internet to indulge our hobbies, let alone read a book. In their own way all our engineering feats are just magnificent.

Jose - those are very useful camera comparisons and frankly there seems nothing to choose between the D600 and the D7000. Contrast is easily tweaked in pp and saturation/hue seems to vary from camers to camera.

I popped in to our local camera store which has about a 3 camera inventory (there's a serious recession in Knysna) and wanted to have closer look at the D7000. No luck but they did have a D800 - what a monster camera!! I couldn't believe the size and weight of the body only and then the salesman attached the 70-200 VR. Just jaw dropping clarity throughout the range.

I have to confess I don't blame Monty for his defection.

My last real WOW moment was in 2009 at a photo show where I looked through a D3 paired with a 600mm f4 AF lens which just blew me away and nearly, but not quite, got me to think about working again. I got over it! Whew.

One of life's great questions Peter. I thought I'd take a break from drinking just to prove to myself that I could... five weeks but that seemed enough. I had a decent single malt Scotch calling to me and had a wee dram... And my hand is still steady today...


As Ray has been saying, with fast lenses we need the extra shutter speed. This was shot with the 105 f/1.8 AI-s but I had to stop down to f/4 to reach 1/8000th with spot metering. That is the only way to stay out of trouble in bright light, which means I'm limited to the center focusing point. I'd love to have 24 megapixels with which to crop, but 12 still works.
