    Thank you Joel. The print turned out quite nice.

    Here's another one from last year. D850, Sigma Art 35.

    Been looking for a new pet-project to keep me busy until I have time to visit my beloved mountains again. This "framing" exercise seems to keep me content for the time being. Oh, how I long for the mountains and lakes!

    Both of these are shot with the D850 and the Sigma Art 35.

    Fredrick,

    Hope you can get back to the mountains soon!

    I know the allure all too well and we are heading to the mountains ourselves, at least, that is the plan.

    In the meantime, glorious rain has blessed us with its presence the past few days. Now the plants, grass and flowers have a content lushness about themselves that we have not seen in months.

    Fascinating, and amazing, difference in how the d850 and digital back have rendered the subject;......the DB is obviously vastly better at the upper tones and, one suspects, colour reality. The d850 looks like it has artificially made acutance by comparison.

    ..........a graphic illustration of why universities and art galleries use DB's for reproducing important art works.

    I agree both photo's are very different, but I wonder if we're really looking at the differences between the sensors or at the difference in PP (or in-camera processing).

    My guess would be that if we would start with an unaltered raw file from both cameras we can make them both look much more similar with a modest effort on both (certainly at the small size for web presentation)

    Both, actually... I don't really like these images, and the red hydrangea I shot as well, was very different than the blue one here. The colors and textures were a challenge and I did not succeed. The only reason for posting these was the "Fun" part of the thread title, learning a little more. Btw, the raw files showed the differences right away.

    Color is quite different between the two, but primarily that is because the WB was set differently. I actually prefer the D3100 color. It is closer to the rendering of the H5D-50c that I shot as well.

    In comparison to the H5D, the D850 frustrates me... at times, files are too "sharp", as in shooting 8th grade formals portraits; elderly portraits; and even tulips. After months of various subjects including covered bridges and waterfalls, I still struggle with getting it right.

    By comparison, so far, in my limited use of various cameras lately, I prefer the rendering differences, colors and file malleability of the 50c and the Leica S.

    These images were a Sunday afternoon leisure test, completely non-scientific, because I was curious to see how a spontaneous image would look if I saw a subject, grabbed the camera and went outside to shoot it. In this case, it wasn't street shooting but "yard-shooting"... LOL... if I can tone the D850 down a bit, it will probably be a very good choice even if the renderings are quite different than what I am used to getting with the other cameras.

    We shall see.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Early Sunday mornings after a rain, I am always curious about the way the early morning sun transforms our garden into a contrasty and delightful environment. So, I was playing with the old D3100 and wondering how to use the 50 1.8 G lens on it and decided to shoot a colorful garden flag. Handheld, and very quickly. Then, around 20 minutes later, I thought it would be interesting to shoot it with the same lens on the D850. The light had already changed by then, but, what else did I have to do while everyone else was sleeping late?

    So, what was my take away with this rough comparison between two vastly different generations of Nikon cameras? Only this: with my limited time and energy, I cannot do a scientific review, so this quick comparison spurred me to shoot some hydrangeas later in the day as posted above with the same cameras using the same lens. I was again impressed with Nikon 50 1.8 G lens.

    It was fun, and it did change my mind about using the little D3100 for snaps. It is now in my backpack and I will look for a decent DX lens for it soon.

    Other than that, it is time to get back to work. I hope all of you have a great work week ahead!

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I got my first post wrong in that I mistook d3100(aps-c?) with a digital back (3100)....in view of that the aps-c has done brilliantly on the flower pic, in my view, as tonal range is(apparently) much superior.

    My wife recently aquired a new nikon d3300 for a very good price as it was 'old stock' due to the d3400 & now d3500. These are nikon's cheapest and most important models....the d3300 is arguably the best entry dslr that nikon has ever mad as the later two have been purposely crippled by nikon presumably to enhance the range further up.

    The d3300 came with 18-55 AF-P lens which is quite staggering in both optical quality and speed of focus(silent) You can see this lens on ebay for not very many pennies in unused condition where buyers of the kit don't need it.

    I have noticed that there is a AF-P wideangle zoom in 10-20 that is not expensive, light-weight and highly rated by reviewers.....

    The d3300 kit is an amazingly high quality item for not very much money and makes super images ....it's the reeason that I'm here looking at the nikon pages every day!

    Haha, thanks so much for answering my next post with an inquiry about a good lens for the D3100. I would enjoy the much better 3300 but that can wait.

    The D3100 I have was given to me by a friend who dropped it in the water's edge while fishing in the river in Florida years ago. I dried it and cleaned it and it works perfectly except for the built-in flash. The 18-55 lens works but is very foggy even today. I tried everything to get inside and clean it but gave up. That zoom lens is on my list now!!!

    I have found that the little D3100 gets lost in my bag even quicker than my Leica X1 because it is so light! That is why it is now in my backpack.

    I would enjoy seeing images from the D3300 if you have time to do so. It all brings back fond memories of my old D40. I miss that camera.

    I think the d3100 will handle the AF-P lenses but it might be prudent to check first as nikon has be playing fast and dirty with lens compatability lately........

    I have been tempted to post some pix from d3300 but only have 'snaps' and it's a bit 'down market' for these elevated pages!

    Post away! This is Fun with Nikon Images...

    Looking forward to seeing what you and your wife are having fun with...

    I had a few minutes this morning and I have found some different settings in my D850 so I will be posting some trial "down market" images myself as I fine tune that camera.

    The thing that has always impressed me whether it be the older images or the latest high tech digital images, is the photographer. I would rather see good images from a "lowly" spec camera in lieu of not so good images from the most expensive equipment. My FM2n reminds me of that everyday.

    So let's have some fun!

    Hey, my apologies, I am not near a computer. Are you doing this on a computer?

    Until I can get back with you, be sure to downsize your images to less than 2MP and the longest size no larger than the max allowed (2500px???).

    From there, I will need to follow along on the computer.

    Check in with you later.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I have found the d3300 to be quite an interesting camera when one takes into account the very low price, light-weight and sheer 'useability' factor.......if you frame it and press you are going to get something thats sharp, reasonably well exposed (little over for me) and very quickly done. it even does night shots to an amazing level,.......carols around the war memorial, this pic made it into the choirs website, again completely unedited ....

    Ah... back to this previous post,

    I managed to find some images from the same leisure-shoot with the D850 that are much closer to what I was hoping for. Busy day ahead so I hope to re-visit those images today and re-post this evening.

    The D850 is highly-capable and if I can finesse the settings to my style of shooting and processing, I will be quite happy. The journey continues... Stay tuned!
    Best regards,
    Dave (GT)

    I probably missed it, but what software are you using for PP?

    Hi, Darin,

    For the Nikon, I have started with LR and finished with PS CC.

    My other work with the Hasselblad is started with Phocus, then LR and finish with PS CC.

    Thanks

    Thank you Dave.
    Unfortunately, I do not have much expertise with PS.

    That D700 does a great job. Sharp but soft where it is best and great colors!

    This photo was processed entirely in Capture NX-D, starting from the current Neutral Picture Control. Normally I would export to 16bit tiff and use LR6 for the finishing touches and the resize to posting, but macOS started warning me that LR6 will not work in the next version, so I am trying to figure out how to use Capture NX-D for everything. But I can definitely see how this approach will not work for most....

    When it comes to NEF conversion, I prefer Capture NX-D to any other software.

    But for some other PP operations, Lightroom offers an easier way. For example, when saving for the web, Lightroom has one dialog which allows me to convert color space, resize the photo and do output sharpening in one step, using a simple and intuitive UI. Capture NX-D does not have that - instead you have to know what/how to do using basic operations. Right now I am trying to figure out what values to select for the standard sharpening tool (intensity, radius, threshold) to get the same results as selecting Standard sharpening for Screen in the Lightroom output dialog. I've been using that Lightroom dialog for so many years I forgot how to do it manually...

    ..they do so in Denmark too, and they send it not only once but 3, four or five times, so in Denmark we are all moaning that awful start tune, the sawtune, all over, when we are sleeping (makes you shivering when you are walking alone in the streets at night while the houses are moaning too) (well, case is, the public-tv-station spend to much money on an extravagant concert hall in Copenhagen, so now they send rehearsals all the time to save money..), well but I find Midsummer Murders rather cozy (even though they all ought to be dead by now in that little village) but I prefer Morse junior while there are a tiny bit more action...and while the awful saw-tune, is a signal for Irene, my wife, to instantly fell asleep in the armchair some microseconds after (by Morse jr. it take at least some minutes more..)...

    I had no idea that Midsummer Murders had such wide coverage,.....it's not so surprising that 'The Europeans' dislike us so much!

    For genuine enthusiasts for UK period drama there is a brilliant new 8 part series currently on screen here by name; 'Gentleman Jack'..the true story of Yorkshire diarist, landowner and polymath, Anne Lister. I drop everything of Sunday evenings after 'Antiques Road-Show' to watch and admire the superb production and photography!

    ....Meanwhile, another unobtrusive shot with 'the poor mans Leica'.....

    You're not speaking for me, I have many UK friends and they are all friendly, great to deal with and hospitable. When I visit the UK I can even say that of most people I meet. I even find "Midsomer Murders" bearable, albeit a bit shallow.

    Yes, that was a little 'tongue in cheek' we mostly like the Belgians, Dutch and Danes it's just 'Junkers 88' and 'Tretcherous Tusks' that have angered many of us......little people who were not elected and with too much to say!
