    The All New Fun with Nikon Images

    It's just me.
    The presence and impact of the filter on the regular model is visible, though with good post processing technique not incurable.
    But admittedly, with the enormous price difference between the two models here in Denmark the E designation surely means Extravagance.
    And as for moiré, yes, it does pop up now and then but so far not to an extent that bothers me. So far I have not even bothered to remove it.
    For me it's truly a pleasure to be without the filter, like finally finding my best reading glasses or looking through a cleaner window pane.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    I took a version of this one with a Nex7 about a month ago, and keep trying to better it with the D800E but whatever I do, the Nex version (here) remains better. Just goes to show that the best camera is the one you have with you! Anyhoo thought I'd post it anyway...

    Very nice image, Tim - and the Sony Nex version does indeed look better.

    I do not want to disturb your view, but for me the D800 version looks better - was a different and for my taste more interesting light.

    Actually both are looking great

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    with trying to give all the respect for any NEX-owners, the above picture is by far the best. It has that crispnes the Nex is missing, period . Actually its a rather good picture (above). I guess you are thinking of the way the leaves are more contrasty against the light in the Nex, but even though, no. Posistion is different, and the more unsharpnes in the Nex can be observed as a more dreaming feeling. Move closer on with the E, more sharpnes at the leaves to the left.

    I like both as well, but there is something about the D800 image that could be in the wider image frame, or perhaps in the processing, but it seems to glow.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    ps...by the way, the E'one has a much more well-defined 3-dimensional rendening, where the Nex is soft with a more "bulky" rendening in the darker areas, combined with the softnes, gives that more fairy-tail, romantic hint that mislead one to like it , but no in the longer run the E'one shines with a sort of more everlasting quality, in a way I would normally take for granded, was the Leica-"patended"-area..

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Thanks for all the helpful comments guys. The D800e shot was taken with the 28mm f1.8g lens, and treated in both Silver Efffex and in Color Effex Pro to give a defocus vignette. The Nex shot was just given Creamtone preset in LR4 and tweaked a little.

    I think I prefer the composition of the nex shot, the dreaminess of the nex shot, but the central definition and tonality of the Nikon shot. Time to try again I guess! But I really do appreciate the opinions and suggestions!

    I prefer this one. Maybe if you get closer like with the Nex the background would dissolve in the same manner. Just need the same light..

    This is RAW of af camera D7000 and a 24-70 f72.8 - natural light only (just a little bur of background.
    shot looks great. looks like camera, lens, photographer, and subject were all fantastic.

    as long as the d600 doesn't carve out too many features to get the price down, i'm open to the idea of it. but time will tell what i want and need. the d300 is definitely going in ASAP.

    You may want to consider the Singh-Ray Vari ND filter which can dial in anywhere from 1 to 8 stops of ND filtration and, like all Singh Ray filters is optically as good as it gets

    Wow!

    Hard to believe the colors are so different from these two cameras. Do you think it is due to the way the two cameras process the Jpegs?

    The M9 shot looks over saturated to me but you are a better judge of how these two images compare to the original scene

    Woody

    If anything, it's how Lightroom processes the two raw files.. since both were fed into Lightroom 4.1, with default settings (the exception being sharpening, which was zeroed out)

    the M9 is pretty close to accurate (this is from someone who's personal preference is for very mute colors in general). The building is *blue*. There are a few others who have visited this site (Fort Ord, skate arena).. Maybe there are some more pics of it floating around)

    maybe next time i'll haul the Betterlight out and shoot it with that as well.

    Jan, I'm using AFd 16mm f/2.8 fisheye. Well, I have no complain on it since the f/2.8 aperture can be used in good PQ. But...... the cover of the lens is too shiiiiiiit...!

    Trip to Snowdonia last wek was a bit of a washout - heavy rain except on the last day. The D7000 took the rain quite well, kept shooting through it, and even survived a lens change or two (it was raining heavily enough we were gifted with a second river outside our hut!)

    The haze in the first shot is rain.
