    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Went to 14,264 foot elevation Mt. Evans, CO today and took this of one of the mountain goats a little below the summit, with my D800e and 85 1.4 lens. No cropping except at the sides. They walk right up to you. Second image of Mt. Evans summit taken with the 14-24 lens...Eleanor

    I think you may have stumbled upon a deep thinker there. A great shot of a great moment.

    No, I think your processing is great, I was more curious if it was color cast from the lens itself. Usually, color cast is the result of tech cameras and image circles, but i've seen a few wide primes on DSLR's that also show color cast. I'm looking into a wide prime for the D800, and thought I should ask. Your photos show a wonderful intimacy with your surroundings and please shoot more star fields, those are amazing!

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    I have definitely noticed a difference in color cast between the Zeiss 100 makro and the Nikon 85 1.4....the latter going a tad more toward the magenta side of the spectrum and the Zeiss, the opposite. Neither is right or wrong...just different. I will shoot more star fields but will have to do so before I return to Texas in October...sky is too bright down there! Right now in Colorado we're having lots of cloudy weather at night unfortunately! I would like to try the Zeiss 100 aimed at the milky way to see what I might get. Been shooting at 14mm!! Eleanor

    Have to say these both have a great look to them outside of great shots.

    Small suggestion the bottom right has a little white in the frame and maybe back off color temp about 200 kelvin. Just slightly too warm . Lovely shot

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Thanks Guy, the 800e definitely needs more processing work than the medium format backs...I'm constantly trying different things to try and get as close to that med. format look with the 800e as is possible. eleanor

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    Yes 35mm always takes a little extra work. Always been like that but the D800 is a little closer than the past Nikons. A lot of it which sometimes is very simple is just kelvin temp changes , Im more like 4900 in daylight than the 5400 that comes in.

    Re: Fun with D800 Photos

    yes, I'm usually at 4950 to 5000 or so and tint around +8 or so...give or take a bit. Also the 800/e files on outdoor (more contrasty) shots seem to come in quite contrasty and somewhat harsh. quite often I'll bring the contrast down a bit. eleanor

    Me too on contrast. Play with that clarity as we talked about before. It does help.

    Thanks Guy. When I convert from ProPhoto to sRGB for the web I get a significant boost in saturation and contrast. I know I'm doing something wrong and maybe someday I'll figure out what it is. :-)

    Honestly I'm waiting for version 7 of C1 to be released. I admit though I have a beta version now. The profiles don't seemed to be redone yet but I imagine they will. Just to ward off a lot of questions on it but it looks really good and pretty much what we have been asking for in many ways. When it's final I think it will rock the house.

    This is why I have a 200 f2. It's a unique look

    It works wonderfully with your monopod.

    With the 85mm f/1.8:





    Always debating to use the 105mm Micro VR or 85mm f/1.8. The 85 may have the edge in sharpness at infinity but no VR. On the other side I can use f/4.5 to get higher speed with the 85mm.

    For infinity I would lean more towards the 85. Many macros have some trouble with infinity. I personally would push the ISO up if needed as even ISO 400 is still killer good. You should be able to get at least 1/1000 at 5.6 I would bet

    With aerials you try to stay as low as possible. There is endless detail and lost is in the shadows.


    >You should be able to get at least 1/1000 at 5.6 I would bet

    I did a test flight and it worked fine at /f4.5 - f/5.6, ISO 320 and speed 1/1000 to 1/1600. I will try it some more.

    Also VR may actually smear fine detail some people say. The overall detail on the D800 is good but you also know we want then some more :-)

    This is an about 3MP crop:

    I'm not the biggest fan of VR in daylight. Low light yea but bright light I question it's need.

    Pro aerials are taken with gyro systems even at daylight.
