Just a quick snapshot of a Peacock I took today taken with the Nikon D7100 together with the 18 – 105 Kit lens. I have been using the D7100 for a couple of week now and simply love the camera, I have a large collection of old style NIkon lenses (22 in all) and they all work perfectly on this camera. Of course the older lenses do not have auto focus and can’t use the fully Auto, Shutter or Program modes, but can use use metered manual and Aperture modes. The D7100 can be also programmed to memorize up to 9 lenses, just set the focal length and maximum aperture. The electronic rangefinder will assist you with the correct focus.
Am I worried that this is a DX format camera and not full frame? Not in the least, I just use a wider lens to get everything in. Far too much is made of full frame capture. For HD video one could argue that a shallow depth of field offered by full frame produces a nice movie like effect, but unless you get the focus spot on, then quite frankly it is not worth the trouble, no-one wants to see an out of focus shot on a 50 inch LCD, LED or Plasma screen.
Another photograph taken at my recent visit to Broadstairs, Kent.
The photograph is of a single person walking on a deserted beach, this sums up our British weather so far this year.
Shot was taken with the Panasonic GH3 camera with the 12 – 35mm lens. The image has been manipulated using Nik Color Effex 4, these filters have saved many images from ending up in the Recycle Bin
Today’s photo of the day was taken this week at Broadstairs on the Kent coast. It was a dull but bright day with a very flat looking sky. I added a graduated filter effect from within Camera RAW and boosted the contrast to produce the picture above.
Camera Panasonic GH3 with a 7 – 14mm zoom lens, set to 7mm (15mm equivalent on a 35mm camera). I have been using the Panasonic for a couple of weeks now and it is producing some great shots. Will be posting a full review of this camera shortly.
