    Moire or not Moire

    I did this with D800E as a moire test. So far, notwithstanding all the warnings, I have not found moire to be a problem. I am used to M9 so this is "normal" to me. I don't shoot weddings so the issue of fabrics is irrelevant to me -- perhaps not to others.

    I got the d800 for urban landscape work, but have been seduced by the low light abilities.

    The 28-300 is actually pretty darn good. This is HDR:

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    It's been about a month since I've taken any photos.....I seem to be in a bit of a photo funk.

    Stopped to take this photo on Sunday of a new mural painted on Pete's Tobacco Shop. I just couldn't resist the colors.

    Just one thing I would have done to improve this mural (or the pic).....he should be holding a stick with a marshmello roasting over the fire (in his oddly positioned hands).

    Maybe a cigar in the corner of his mouth too. ;-)

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I was fortunate enough to be able to attend Joe McNally's "One Light, Two Light" Tour when it stopeed in Miami. Joe is a great instructor and a very personable guy. I tried to put some of his lessons in practice today.

    This shot is one Speedlight on a stand with a Strobie 24" x 24" softbox. A white reflector was used to backfill. I need to get a clamp to hold the reflector. Camera was set to 1/1600s f/2.8 ISO 400.

    Finally I got my D800, and bring it on my vacation to Barcelona. Thats stressfull to learn new camera on a vacation - and a D800 with a 24/70 is not a vacation packet. No art, just candid shots - just to show of..

    Very interesting to see, and a nice shot. I'm fascinated by this area. My son spent a year in Xinjiang, and even met his wife in Urumqi. He did some exploring along the northern Silk Road, but lost most of his photographs.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Hi everyone,
    What a better way to start using a new camera than taking picture of tens of thousands of football fans in a game between Giants and Jets.
    Last Sataurday on a very beautiful day at MetLife Stadium.
    Stitch of 5 pictures, handheld. There was a 6 seconds delay between the first and the last picture and that's why there are two different images on the Stadium screens. D800E, 24-85 G

    Best,

    Thanks Matt,
    I got it three weeks ago and have been testing the camera and
    different lenses since then, I will post the results later, but so far I'm
    not happy with lenses in general and camera has many short comes.

    Manouch,

    I'm sorry that you are not delighted, as the camera seems to offer so much. I'm struggling with the Cambo/IQ140, but not because of any shortcomings of the equipment.

    Your football panorama looks splendid, BTW.

    Best,

    Matt

    You have me nervous on your comment above . I'm in the middle of downtown Portland walking around so need to see what's you have going on when I get home. Heading to Cannon beach for a few days going to play with my glass some.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Matt,
    As you know I was waiting for Sony but I got disappointed and bough D800E.
    The sensor is exceptionally good and no problem with it but that credit goes to Sony, not Nikon.
    The problem that I have faced so far, Nikon does not have any zoom lens
    between 24-80 that matches or gets close to the quality of that sensor and also,
    live view for using non autofocus lenses in the field is useless. Another problem is autobracketing which
    if you decide to take from +2 to -2 you have to take 5 pictures and you have to release the shutter 5 times,
    there is no easy way to push the button once and take 5 pictures.
    A few times I forgot how many pictures I took and had to start all over again and even cancelling the previous one
    was not easy. Also, when you lock the mirror you can not use the self timer any more(or at least I haven't discover yet),
    I am still reading Tom Hogan's 850 plus Manual.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Manouch, I agree that this camera has frustrations, but some of it is has more to do with Byzantine user interface elements than actual lack of capabilities. Some thoughts in no particular order ...

    -I wouldn't be too quick to give Sony all the credit for the sensor. Just because they make it doesn't mean they didn't have help with design, r&d, and signal processing.

    -Have you used the 24-70 2.8? Reviews aren't entirely consistent, but mine rivals the best primes I've used, not counting field curvature at the wide end. Its biggest sin is the big dumb form factor. I use it on a tripod mostly.

    -You may be right about auto bracket. I haven't discovered if there's a burst mode for this buried somewhere. Would be useful.

    -It is annoying that self timer doesn't automatically lock up the mirror (as with many older nikons). There is, however, in the menus, a shutter delay mode that takes care of this for you. It can be put on your favorites menu for easy accessibility. Live view also locks up the mirror automatically. If you are not using a remote, live view works well in conjunction with the regular timed release mode.

    -I focus all day long with live view in manual focus, often in very low light. To make it easier I've followed the suggestions to create a custom picture control, with sharpening cranked all the way up. Makes a big difference. I also don't zoom in farther than 100%, which you do by pushing the button in the middle of the directional ring. You can go a few steps beyond that, but it just blows up the pixels and the noise.

    -I'll add a gripe to your list: lack of useful user presets. like on the d7000. They smoke some funny stuff in Sendai.

    By the way auto-bracketing burst only make sense with high shutter speeds. Otherwise the mirror and shutter slap would degrade image quality too much.

    Yes, I agree. Unless you could set the interval. My only interest would be in solving the problem Manouch mentions, which I've suffered too: losing count.

    One positive point ... I bracket shutter speeds on my industrial interior work, because I'm used to the images requiring HDR processing. So far with the d800 my best results have come from a single exposure, and just goosing the shadows in post. Probably when I get a little more comfortable with the camera's powers, bracketing will become a fallback for unusual circumstances rather than business as usual.
