    Re: Nikon "Street"

    Steen, It was all the light that did the work. I don't use long lenses for street and this was a long one that I use for IR. Now, don't laugh..the lens was..
    Tamron 70-210mm f/3.8-4 46A (that I picked up for 15 guilders years ago) @f/8 and at the long end.

    Thanks!

    Road safety never became fashionable in this country. Surprisingly though, most of them survive...

    Jorgen, I can't see any of your photos on this thread. I do see the other ones. Am I the only one?

    Hmmm... neither do I

    My schedule has been dotted with new "interesting" challenges lately, taking away the peace of mind needed to take photos. I should probably marry an accountant to take care of my paperwork

    Here's a couple from downtown Poipet, two years ago. Both with the E-1 and OM Zuiko 100mm f/2.8, probably @ f/4.0.

    Edit: Suddenly it strikes me that the E-1 isn't really a Nikon, but what the heck. Can you forgive me? I'll cross post to the 4/3 forum as well, just to keep some kind of balance here





    Could somebody at Olympus please re-invent the E-1, Kodak sensor and all?

    Buy a G1 and all Nike gear becomes redundant automatically, especially for street. That is what happened with me.

    I'm waiting for the Fuji m4/3 or the Olympus m4/3 with a viewfinder. I've heard that the Fuji will be able to do my accounting as well

    Now, that is a combicam feature that would be really useful!

    I can do away my wish for a coffee machine as being part of a combicam if it would do the accounting!

    Go Fuji!

    Re: Nikon "Street"

    Posted previously in the "For Fun" thread, but here's my modest take at street photo lately. With my apologies to Jono for the "BW, grainy, OOF" photo (dead on! ) but it was a reflex shot with the ZF 21mm through a wind shield.

    (a car procession from a wedding was passing by...)

    Re: Nikon "Street"

    From a recent trip to NYC:









    In case you are wondering about the odd angles, the technique I used goes like this:

    Using my D700 + MB-D10 + CV 20mm SL II (not exactly subtle), I set the lens focus hyperfocally at f5 & 10' to infinity. I set the camera to aperture priority and auto ISO (200-3200) and basically walked around with it at arm's length at my side (I have a Camdapter handstrap - highly recommended!) and shot folks as I passed by. Street noise masked the shutter noise very effectively and no one was the wiser. Or New Yorkers are just too jaded to care.

    I think a Nikon street thread is a great idea. I got rid of all my 4/3 stuff and seem to be doing fine with my D700 and 20, 28, and 50.

    Oddly, Sony is the only camera maker who are refusing to make combicams!

    CaNikPentOly, etc should merge and make a do it all camera.

    Hi,

    after enjoying so many beautiful images I think it's time to show some images from me.
    I really enjoy "street" images, but I feel not very comfortable doing them myself.

    Both images done with D200 and the 18-200 AFS VR Nikon lens.

    Greetings,
    Andrea

    The last one is wonderful, Steen.

    Here's one from early this morning in Poipet, Cambodia, where I spent an hour wading in the mud.

    Re: Nikon "Street"

    Thanks Jorgen. Great capture of the rainy and muddy morning atmosphere in Poipet.
    Are you there for business, holiday ... or for finding images


    And yes, Roger, I think this lens must be my all time favourite, though it ain't that easy to focus with accuracy.
    I so much hope that Nikon will soon release an AF-S 1.2/85 VR.
    And please let it be a lens with magic rendering, not just an ok lens like e.g. the recent AF-S 1.4/50.
    Did I say f/1.2 ?
    F/1.4 max aperture will be ok provided it has excellent sharpness wide open
    Do you think Nikon is capable of making such a prime with mojo
    Do you think Nikon is interested in making primes with mojo ...

    Thanks Steen, sometimes it's nice to get away for a few hours. I took the train up there yesterday afternoon, five hours for $1.25, third class only and great, cheap entertainment Then I spent the evening drinking local beer, smoking dirt cheap, local cigarettes at $0.40 a pack (yes, it's a bad habit, but in Poipet, it feels right) and watching people and motorbikes floating by in the mud. Up before sunrise at five, an hour of photos before I took one of the casino buses (those who take the gamblers back to Bangkok after a night of gambling on the border; casinos are not permitted in Thailand, but they are on the Cambodian side, before you formally enter Cambodia) back home, arriving here at 11 in the morning. Cheap fun

    I also wish for a few new Nikkor primes. The 85/1.8 spends a lot of time on my S5, but life would be so much easier if it had VR. f/2.0 is ok for me, if it's small, light, sharp and has great bokeh. This is one of the reasons why I'm considering a K-7; the 77mm f/1.8 with in-camera IS would be perfect for my needs. No Fuji sensor in the Pentax though

    Steen,
    Your latest street portraits are excellent, this one too. But where is this? Babylon?

    Nice capture of the pig hauler, Jorgen.

    Steen, thats a great street portrait, of the young woman

    MHC, that shot looks like it could be and advertisement for some British luggage company.
