    In order:
    Nice Courtesy Car
    Nice Ride!
    Lovely Niece though she looks weary of her Uncle's lens being pointed at her. She needs to get used to that.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    My wife and I got back recently from our 26-day road trip from Vancouver down the coast to Big Sur and then over to Yosemite. I used my new D300s and 12-24mm, 18-200mm and 70-300mm lenses. This is a sunset at Morro Bay, CA.

    More pictures from our trip may be seen at my website (in the Travel section).

    Cheers,

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    I picked up my brother at the airport last Saturday, and since we were in need of some breakfast, we took a shortcut down towards a coastal town were there's an abundance of seafood available, even at 7 o clock in the morning.

    And on the way, there were flowers, lots of them. Trying hard to be a real man, I obviously don't take photos of flowers, but alas.... I failed again. I guess I can try to become a real man next year instead

    My first shots with the D80 and the unloved Tamron 24-135.

    "beautiful neice, beautiful blue
    beautiful orange too"

    hey, I made a poem
    you can carry on shooting flowers, Jorgen

    btw., when I shoot petals in direct sunlight I often need to underexpose by something like -0.7
    otherwise the petals get blown out like if petals reflect light in a special strong way
    do you see that as well ?

    Don't know, I never shoot flowers

    Wait..... I'm thinking hard..... :sleep006: From the shadows, this one looks like it was shot mid-day (S3 with Micro Nikkor 105/2.8):



    No, no blown petals.

    Cool shots, Andree, particularly the last one. Your car looks like it could use some paint though....

    Do you still have your D3?
    Sadly no Jono.

    I sold it to help pay for my new 39 Mpx MF system. But I will get another one before the year ends. Can't be without one for very long. I probably will wait until after Photokina to see what Nikon does with a high rez chipset.

    I took my new (to me)D3 out for a try today. We had about 5+ inches of rain in the area over the weekend. You can see water laying in the field. This farmer is lucky to be on hilly land.

    Nice Cindy, looks like you're having fun with it. Just wait till you shoot it in less than ideal conditions if you haven't already, it's pretty amazing.

    I'd guess that the high res Nikon will be announced during the next couple of weeks, probably in time for the Olympics (they never announce new gear at Photokina anyway): 24mp D3x, new D90 and perhaps a new FX D300 sized camera (that sounds further away), possibly called The D10.

    Part of me envies you the MF system, part of me is profoundly relieved not to have taken that step. At any rate, I want to see what a high res 35mm FF with Nikon lenses looks like before committing.

    Jono

    Solid logic.

    However I feel that with the Mamiya/Phase system you have a look and feel that is very close to DSLR. Most controls on the body are very intuitive coming from many different brands of DLSR for me (Nikon, Canon, Leica DMR and M8). So to me the only reason not to buy MF is price and of course that is a big issue. But the files are extraordinary and particularly if you print large a big advantage. Certainly I will be testing these hypotheses over the next months so will be able to give experience based advice at that point.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    For me I am glad that I sold my 7600 printer and downsized to the 3800, as my kids are starting college in the fall, OR I would be more and more tempted every day...... for now .....I figure the worse I can do now, is the D3 or if they release it a D3X.....and thank the lord that I have no camera stores locally that carry such gear, so I am not tempted on a daily or weekly visit..and avoiding such trips to B&H etc.....

    Well, I thought very hard about it, and although I know you're right about the qualities, there were two questions which stopped me:

    1. How many photos would you miss by using a more cumbersome MF system.
    2. How many photos would be genuinely better by using an MF system.

    The conclusion I came to was that 1 was a bigger number than 2.

    Then I thought about the time learning, the adjustments to my (very settled) workflow, and the imminent arrival of Nikon's high resolution body.

    So, for now at least, I'm very relieved not to have joined - to be honest, my only regret is not really being able to join in the fun in the MF forum (and THAT is no reason to spend 20,000!)

    Hmm - the story is that poachers like them, they're fast like a whippet, but killers like the beddy. Ours is 13 now, and she's losing the plot a bit, but I think you'd say they're the perfect mixture:

    Gentle and friendly combined with feisty and outgoing (I'll allow you to assign the characteristics to the breeds ;-).

    Jono,

    FYI, I've put up an attempt to show the resolution differences between a 12mpix system and the various MF systems. It's not perfect but I think it helps conceptualize how much resolution differences exists between the various options:

    playing around and ran across this from March. Ducks that come and visit each year on our little pond. I think it's one of the first little bodies of water to ice out in the area.

    How did you manage to time that? Or for that matter how long were you sitting at the window hoping for a strike to occur?

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks guys, and nice shot Andree!

    It wasn't really a matter of timing...there were constant lightning strikes. I believe that exposure was for 8 seconds. It was a massive storm, as I am sure the other New Yorkers will tell you.

    As for the diner, I am not sure if it is the diner from Spider Man...I don't remember. They do shoot things there all the time though...Italian Vogue did a shoot there this afternoon, on Friday the show "Rescue Me" is shooting there, and they are always doing commercial shoots there. It is a real pain in the *** because they block off parking for several blocks in all directions and tow your car if you just leave it there. It drives me up the wall. And the film people have a HUGE sense of entitlement about it. They get huffy if you want to walk down the street when they are shooting. At this point I just tell them that I am going to walk to my apartment and if they don't like it they can go F themselves.

    Sorry for the rant...I hate the film people. Just because you paid off some city official doesn't mean you can come into my neighborhood and tell me I can't park on or walk down my own street. It gets me so mad!

    an oldie but goodie....
    Taken with a D200 and an old 55mm Micro AIS... love this lens, have not had issues with oil on the aperture blades etc, guess that makes me a lucky one...focus is on the stiff side though but no accidental movement...I like it that way...

    Onboard flash, busy background, blown highlights and 35 degrees Celsius. Do I care? Not as long as I get a kiss on the cheek by the model

    D80 with 50mm f/1.8 @ f/4.0

    Jorgen,
    She is adorable. What a nice capture. You have such a signature look. I always thought it was the S3, but now I see that it is coming through with the D80, too. Nice work.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks a lot all of you for your kind words. We were just fooling around yesterday, me trying to figure out how to use the D80, and the children trying to figure out what to do with the foreigner.

    Here's another one. Eating wafers and watching that weird guy at the same time is no easy task.

    D80 with 50mm f/1.8 @ f/2.8. No flash.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    The weather is bad, and I'm too lazy to work, so here's another one. Found these figurines under a tree at a temple in Pattaya yesterday, trying to get the D80 to perform. 50mm f/1.8 again @ f/2.0 this time.

    Very nice and 3-dimensional. You obviously succeed "trying to get the D80 to perform".
    And that little standard optic. Of couse it's always hard to judge from small websized images, but it looks tack sharp to me and even with a nice bo-ke. Amazing.
    I hope they announce some new, fast AF-S versions of these good old primes, maybe even within a few days from now ...
    So what do you think about your new D80 so far, Jorgen, compared to your Fuji ?

    I agree - more nice shots Jorgen
    But, I've had both of the nikkor AFS 50's (f1.8 and f1.4) and I thought that they had nasty bokeh (I'm not convinced by the bokeho on the last shot - looks gritty to me).

    It'll be interesting to see whether the new primes come. Personally, I've had only joy from the lovely little Voigtlander 58 f1.4 . . . but the much more expensive Zeiss 25 f2.8 is nothing like as good as either of the new nikkor zooms (14-24, 24-70) . . . AND it cost 2/3 the price of one too! Obviously the primes are nice from a speed/size point of view, but I'm wondering whether a couple of very high quality, reasonably light f4 zooms wouldn't be a better sales proposition.

    Just this guy you know
