    Excellent images above Ustien. Were these shot with the 105 Micro?

    I noticed the 105 VR Micro occasionally hunting for focus etc, just in one morning shooting with it. The Canon 100mm f2.8 IS lens is excellent, easily the equal of the Nikon 105.

    I also would like the 105mm to get closer. But the Cnon 100mm has the same specs.

    Today Dan Lindberg and I was out shooting. I use Nikon and Dan use Alpa tech cam and a Leaf back. It's always interesting to see how our composition will end up. We have the same scenery, but we look at it in different ways. This is my interpretation and Dan's you will see in the Mediumformat section.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Used the d800 at a wedding this weekend... overall a pretty positive experience. All 4 of these are using a mix of ambient and bounced on-camera flash.

    I have to admit that the Nikon flash system is worlds more consistent than the Canon system I used to have.









    Cheers!

    Shelby,
    Excellent wedding photos wow they look great even on my iPad 1

    Gary looks like you got your D800/e dialed in pretty quickly.
    Did you have to do any af micro adjust on your 105 VR?
    Hand held with VR on, amazing....
    Oh yeah, did you process the images in LR4 if so what sharpening did you use?

    Great Shots Uwe, Gary and Shelby!

    Uwe, agree, love the subtle palet of colors of the plane shot.

    Gary, you really have that 105 VR singing on the D800E and detail in your shots are outstanding.

    Shelby,what lens(s) were you using for your posted wedding shots. I like the framing/composition and the overall feel of the good times captured.

    All nicely done!

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Shelby.....your shots from the wedding are amazing. I remember early on, many of us wondered if the D800 would be a "tripod only" camera. You've certainly proven that's not so. Echoing Dave's comment, I would like to hear more about which lenses you used etc.

    Steven....no, I haven't tried to micro adjust any of my lenses yet. In fact, I've never done that with the very few cameras I own which have that capability. I need to spend some time and learn how to do this stuff. Re processing, I'm afraid my usual processing workflow is extremely basic and simple. I haven't spent the time to learn Lightroom, so I'm still stuck in Photoshop (CS5) and it's pretty much auto this, auto that, maybe boost the saturation by a few points and then throw in 50-100 points of of sharpening and call it good. I'm sure that everyone here could pull a lot more out of these files than I ever will.

    I picked up a new 24-120 VR lens on Saturday afternoon and had a chance to try it out this morning. I don't expect it to be as good as the best Nikon prime lenses, but based on the experience of many here at GetDPI, I'm hoping it will be "good enough" for those days when I'd like to have the flexibility a zoom provides. In any case, I figured it could live on my D700 if I decided to stick with better glass for the D800E.

    Here are a few of my first shots with the 24-120 VR. Quickly processed from the JPGs (I know....bad behavior!).

    Gary

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Relly nice wedding-shots, Shelby! A bit informations about your settenings, Aperture, shutterspeed, and did you do a lot of work in pp to achieve your colours? Does shallow dof on the 800 give you practically problems. I guess it will, shooting streets, and perhaps hip-shot will be a long gone issue by now, one would have to jump up to f.11 even shooting wides, I guess.
    Thorkil
    (amazing shots Gary, specially the first, you seem to achieve great dof, but the last seems a bit too sharp(?))

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Here you go... sorry that my screen capture didn't keep the color consistent, but you can see my camera settings on this.

    I think one has to remember that there is so much resolution (for wedding work), that the final delivered files at, say, 12mp will tolerate some mild softness as some of that softness will be lost in downsampling. That said, I got consistently nice captures all evening. The addition of sensitive on-camera flash also helped with crispness.

    As far as color, these were all pretty spot on out of camera. I used lightroom 4 with the 2012 process, camera neutral profile. Generally I dropped the blacks down and the shadows up. Clarity bump on the B/W.

    Shelby, those shots will have a lot of wedding photographers drooling into the guests' salmon appetisers.. great stuff indeed!

    Gary, I hope you've got a good copy of the 24-120. it is such a useful lens. You really must do the AF fine tune thing though: it is astonishingly easy and not only does it do what is says on the tin but it lets you place the DOF where you want it. My 70-200 in a studio at F8 was carrying all its DOF in front of the POF and I managed to adjust it so exactly that now, focus on the eye means the tips of nose and ears are in focus. Really useful.

    LR4 is so good at what it does. Just download a trial and play. The shadows slider alone is worth the cost of entry with a D800. It is very intuitive yo use but if you want to throw some time at it, the Lula video series will leave you a total expert and with very nice results.

    This is for a friend of ours for a commercial portrait that she needs for her website so pretty corporate looking. But just wanted to show you the 200mm F2 lens at F7.1 and the fall off. Its heavily airbrushed as that is what she wanted. I'm still working it too. LOL

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Way behind here. I'll try to catch up.

    Daves:
    Looks the the 85/1.4 deals well with the strong backlight.
    Frankie: Some terrific sports shots. Love the action in that Rugby on the beach shot in particular.
    Mikael: Great work, as always. I especially like the selective color rose, and the rocks at the shore is terrific, and I think it compares very well to Dan's MF shot.
    Joe: Stunning images, as always. I love that shot of the river "Along Hwy 38".
    Uwe: Very kewl detail shots of those old planes. Almost looks like selective color (although I know it's not.) Interesting.
    Rayyan: Love the shots from Turkey, especially the Bosporus shot. The combination of warm and cool light is nice.
    Gary: The shots from Thailand just are very kewl. Amazing color too. And that tree looks like "popcorn popping".
    Bob: Some seriously departure from your usual. Very nice shots, and a very intriguing place.
    Steve: Amen, bro. Awesome images too.
    Gary: Nice to see you got the D800e. Nice images too. Looking forward to more examples.
    BSEH: Sorry your wait for the D800 has been so long. Very nice work with the D7000, however. Great color; the skin tones are spot on.
    Jorgen: Nice catch! Orange three is a decisive moment shot. Great color too.
    John: Nice shot of the torch on the train. I'm looking forward to those Olymipics!

    Hope I haven't missed anyone. Great work all.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Thanks Shelby. Fantastic shots!
    I guess nobody here use only C1? For posting, LR4 is also better I guess? Have to learn it some day, although I dropped it because I didn't think it was so intuitive as C1, and was too impatience to invest the demanded time. Thanks for advice on LR Tim. Lula is better than Luminous Landscape, in learning LR? And posting from C1 gives me problems. The pictures don’t shine.

    Exquisite dof (and colours) on your flower, Tim!
    I'm beginning wondering, going for acceptable dof, would mean f.11, and some pictures from that aperture could be interesting, just to get an impression on how unacceptable diffraction would be on different lenses.

    Still going through this wedding... really liked this one. Notice the bridesmaids in the BG wrestling for the bouquet... they were some serious gals!
