    I think it's a 10 mp camera and looked like a toy. However, the 17"x22" print is beautiful. I ask myself if I need 150 mp.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    It is indeed a lovely image Pramote.
    I should also like to say that as a hobbyist that rarely prints big, I am more and more coming to the conclusion that I should shoot with gear that is enjoyable to use and use lens that render how I like!

    yes, certainly a wonderful picture Pramote.
    We should all have stopped at 10 or 12 Mp!

    Hi Alan & Thorkil,

    Thank you very much for your kind words! I really appreciate them.

    I completely agree with you about chasing MP. Although I've had 150mp camera (guilty!), I don't feel it's necessary. The reasons I kept upgrading were not as simple as chasing MP. Other factors beyond MP such as great technical support, ability to use with tech cam, excellent upgrade path (so I don't need to sell them by myself) etc. were more important. I started to realize long ago my photography capability is far below my camera gears. I have to work harder.

    As you said, as a non-professional photographer, any cameras in (and out of) the market now is more than enough to make nice prints.

    The company I admire the most is Leica. Leica's never increased the MP (37.5 mp) for S2, S (006) and S (007). They improved the camera and lens line-up instead. I stopped using it and blamed Leica for a long time when I was in the MP game. Nowadays, it turns out to be one of my most beloved cameras to use. That's why Leica is Leica.

    Enjoy the upcoming fall!

    Best

    Pramote

    Yes should have stopped chasing pixels n shiny
    new things long time ago.

    Put this down as lesson learned.

    Ah, Pramote, agreed!

    That is why I am having so much fun with a new-to-me Nikon D2x, which replaced my old one sold long ago. If only I could afford some really nice lenses for it, it would be my daily carry as it was years ago.

    But for now, I have found more uses for my trusty Leica X1 and it really produces excellent results, even with long exposures and ND filters. Interesting fact: Both are 12 mp.

    The Leica X1 goes everywhere since it is so small and light.

    I was looking through the Fun with threads on GetDPI in the different sections one day and I was seeing all this great photography. The quality of the photography was not distinguished by the equipment, sensor size, pixel number, or a host of other technical criteria that are often cited as being important. It was quite liberating.

    The real limit to my photography is not a technical one.

    Totally agree...

    In fact, it might be fun to see more images from our "vintage" cameras, not only older ones but recent work.

    Bar Harbor, Maine
    Nikon D800/Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8

    When I look back, lots of my favorites were taken by older cameras. I guess I was more dedicated back then.

    This picture was taken early in the morning after heavy rain. The place was all mine. I was in and out of the shelters all morning soaking with water. Finally, when the sun broke through the clouds, my hard work paid off.

    Not long after that, other photographers started to show up. Few of them told me I was lucky to capture the moment. I just smiled and politely told them I was just lucky. I was in the right place at the right time.

    I feel very proud of myself every time I looked at this picture. More important, I have a story to tell my kids and their kids

    This was the only trip my camera was dead on me few days after I took this picture. I found out later the D800 was not waterproof. It's recovered though after I put it in the bag full of rice!

    The best camera is the one I can buy second hand for a low price at my local camera shop. There are so many bargains now, many of them hardly used.

    Yep. IMO, Nikon has never bettered the D700 for quality of construction. And it had a lovely rendering of color images also.

    I have never owned a D700, but have used one. I agree it is/was a fine camera. But I would never want to voluntarily stop at 10/12mpx. There are many reasons to appreciate more modern sensors and quality higher megapixels, without getting sucked into the mpx arms race.

    That crane is just very nice and very present! And the baboon and leopard is very special too..!!
    For my part I must admit, that I certainly don't regret the Z7, its reliable and easygoing as my D3 was, its handy to carry and therefore the first-choice compared to the Df. It is more bright and the lenses too, and its hard to get it Df-look-alike in post,
    but still very satisfied, in the nice calm way... (and its so easy to crop without any losses)

    Thanks. Yes, no regrets on the Z7. I did occasionally wish for 3d tracking from my D850, but not enough to regret switching. I find the Z7 a real pleasure to use.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Ha! Lately, I have been working back through some older gear and my favorite of all time showed up in my bag.

    Been trying to sort out a daily carry and the D2x fits fine with me as it did a decade ago when I was shooting sports and weddings. It has been fun getting back to the D2x. The hummers around here are swarming, so I am getting a good workout on technique! They sure are fast!

    Nikon D2x 50/1.8 G (Handheld)


    The past few days have convinced me that I desperately need my old 70-200/2.8 back, as it was a fantastic combination for me.

    Delightful Dave! I love shooting hummingbirds. And the lighting in this one is especially nice. I enjoy my 300/2.8 best for this. And I often pair it with 1-3 flashes at high speed sync.

    Thanks Dave. These are majestic birds, and they are flipping huge! Most of the wildlife on the Chobe are accustomed to the safari boats on the river. And the boat captains are very skilled at approaching gently and quietly. Getting close is just a matter of patience and learning to watch for clues as to the birdís or animalís intentions. The herons, cranes, and large raptors like fish and tawny eagles are a bit easier to read, as their size requires more muscle preparation before taking flight. The smaller birds can dart in one twitch. Baboons, monkeys, elephants, buffalo, and even impala were largely unfazed by us. Even crocs. At one point, I could have easily leaned over and touched the snout of a croc that was clearly over 12 feet long. But the hippos. The hippos get pissed off very easily, especially if your captain approaches with a sweeping high speed motion that sends a wave across its snout. 😉

    We had the luxury of being in well-balanced, flat bottom, shallow draft boats that could glide through the reeds. One time, we even bumped into a stump on which a lilac-breasted roller was perched, and it did not even move as our boat scraped past it with each of us within two feet of the bird. Each of seven seats in the boat was fitted with a custom 360 rotatable, height adjustable seat with a full Wimberley gimbal and Arca bracket that could be adjusted forward and backward, up and down. It was a superb photographic arrangement. These guys were pros. They also rented Nikon lenses like the 600 and 500 f/4 foróget thisó$15 per day. I rented the 600 one day but it actually got me too close to much of the wildlife most of the time! It was easier and more flexible to use my 80-400+1.4TC.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    It has been fun using the Nikon D2x, it reminds me of a long wonderful experience with my first one. Lately, I have been re-organizing my files and when I came across this, I also felt the original sheer joy of using the first generations of Nikon single-digit D bodies.

    And recently, I made a quick snapshot capture of the cameras in my Hadley Pro bag as I was cleaning and re-organizing everything:

    Hi, Darr,

    Ooops, making a correction here, it is Fort Pulaski. I haven't been back there in a very long time and if the weather will ever cool down in these parts, I am looking forward to another visit.

    There are so many interesting things to see and the light is delicious... as is Savannah, just begging for a morning stroll. The natural light here was surprisingly beautiful even at mid-day.

    Ahhh..

    Not only do I appreciate your sharing exquisite images from your ride, but also your posting a photograph of your iron steed! Reminds me so much of my BMW K1200LT which I dearly miss, but the memories are wonderful. Thanks for reminding me!

    Dave,

    If you get back to Savannah and want to head south along the coast, check out Fort Clinch on Amelia Island near Jacksonville. A great place to shoot as the few times I was there (during the week), there was no one else and I had the place to myself. Great image of Fort Pulaski!

    Kind regards,

    Thanks, Darr,

    I appreciate the tip regarding Fort Clinch. I really do need to visit that one and many others because the old forts really are different, and the light is quite different than outside in the harsh sun. Now you have inspired me to make plans!

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Had a blast photographing the most amazing sunset last night. I think this is one of the better pictures I have made in quite a while. I really enjoyed using a proper wide-angle lens again, and will be selling of some gear to buy a 14-24mm of my own.

    Maybe too many but every Joshua Tree is unique. I've been playing with them
    backlit by the setting sun. D850, Nikkor G f1.8 20mm. Processing these demands max both shadow and highlight recovery for starters. But the dynamic range of the D850 is outstanding

    This is from my favorite location to photograph. Now that I have my own wide-angle lens again, I will be finding even more compositions of this wonderful place.
