Salary is very good, office is incredible, workload is to die for, BUT I am about 35 years to old at this point.
Zach, I got this shot this summer in YNP. Image is not cropped. There were several people standing near me with IPhones, but none volunteered to move forward to get this shot. 🙂 It will be a while before the phone can do it all.
If you are going to photograph wild life get a telephoto lens for your phone.
Yes battery life is very short with it and I am reading a constant issue sport use where due to the view finder lag, the ball is missing from a lot of photos. I am thinking that Nikon is waiting the electronic view finder lag to be acceptable for sports, before they release a high end EVF camera.
Do you not love those images that the D810 captures.
There is not a bridge in the lower float. Eight hours is about right when fishing and be prepared to get your feet wet on the first couple of trips. There are 5 or 6 fish traps in that section and even knowing the water, if the flows are low, you may need to walk the boat through one.Jan 31, 2015 at 9:07 pm in reply to: Anyone seeing any used Nikon Df's on closeout yet? #88559
Nikon generally has them available marked down as refurbished. About every other month they do a 10% off sale on this site.
Great sensor, same as in my D4S but has, reportedly, better noise control at higher ISO.
Once you get a 10 pound lens to go with it, you will be able to make some of those minnows look like trophy fish. 🙂Jan 9, 2014 at 10:31 pm in reply to: New Article: The Loneliest Brook Trout in the World #75945
Good read Zach.
Keep in mind that is a younger man’s game. Before you know it you will be checking to see if the knees will handle the trip.
1450 here also, carries a lot but fits into most bow open storage areas. My D800 with 70-200 attached is an easy fit along with extras.
David, have you taken a look at the free Nikon View/NX2 which has built into it Nikon Transfer. These are great tools for moving files from your camera/memory card to the C: drive and they will propagate all of your shoot/location data per image at the same time. I even have a _and 5 digit sequential number added to each file name to prevent duplicates from multiple cameras. Once I do a preliminary culling, I just move the images to which subdirectory I will leave them in and then do an import into LR catalog later with the images staying put.
Hmmm, just under 3K with the new 50 lens..
It’s awful cute in silver and rings all the right bells for swanning about the place shooting arty farty like, but it’s too much money and a second D800 would be better value (IMHO).
Aww bugger it, I still want one..lol
I already have the two D800s and I am still thinking about one. NAS gone wild, I guess!
Zach, 60 days after retailers start delivering the Df you will be able to find used ones on the FM sale board. Make that 30 days, on second thought. They should be priced at about a $300 – $350 discount. Start saving your $$$$.
When I just look at the specification sheets of both the D700 and the Df I see much of what many would have asked for in a D700 upgrade. Yes the Df is a very capable body and it is an relatively inexpensive route to a D4 sensor.
Zach to your point about it not being a one off. If Nikon is not going to build a D700 successor (D700/D3 pairing) where the D4 sensor will be utilized, then continued versions of the Df would make sense in order for Nikon to sell additional D4/D5/D6 sensors and drive down the per unit cost of its topline camera body.
With the 610 being priced at $1999 and the D800 at $2999, for bodies only, I would be very surprised if the Df were not priced somewhere between the two. If Nikon prices it lower there could be a marketing issue if there is a D300 replacement priced at $1700 which is the current D300 retail price. Come Tuesday next week, we should know.
Zach, on your comment about the D600 being pretty heavy …..wimp!
Hunting is a different sport from target shooting, someone at Remington might want to review the two definitions.
Can’t wait till next year, what is wrong with multiple trips per year?
I am leaving on the 21st for a week. There is, as you well know, a reason some of us make three trips to Northern MI for each one to WY/MT.
I was reading a “tutorial” the other day when looking into ideas for making my boxes, and I noticed that I could see all of dude’s equipment reflected in the shiny surfaces of the gear he was shooting. Not very pro.
If you look closely into the eyes of many models you will see the equipment being used for the shot. The catch light in her/his eyes is of course a flash. You will have fun shooting shiny stuff.Sep 3, 2013 at 5:00 pm in reply to: Sunken Driftboat Possibly "Stolen" on the Yellowstone #75148
Zach, if I remember correctly, it is also a crime to leave it in the river. If it was not hung up in a snag, I would think it is on its way to Billings. Most likely in many pieces.
PS: Wasn’t me either. Any action taken by a fishermen that results in time lost from the bow casting position, is a bad idea!
Zach, as far as finding that kind of furniture, it is just some old office piece from a drafting or architectural office. Your State DOT office building is being redone and if they are getting new office furniture I would expect you would be able to fine a couple of pieces, in wood, available at the State Surplus Property warehouse.Aug 24, 2013 at 8:51 am in reply to: Phil Monahan: "Should I Teach My Wife To Fly Fish?" #74990
Of course you should give it a try. But I would talk with her as see if she might be not only interested in fly fishing but photography as well. Since trout, generally do not live in ugly places, the camera has its place and either interest will have you both looking forward to the next trip.
As John has said, some days you just leave it at home. I know some photographers insist on carrying everything they have all of the time, but I can not nor will I try. Just decide what you want to do that day and which lens you want to do it with and leave the others behind. If nothing else, it will force you to learn that lens.
Anytime I pack a 300mm f2.8 of larger lens the tripod and/or monopod goes in the car. While you can shoot some of these superteles handheld it will not take long for you rethink that decision.
Zach, it stuff like this that just proves that “Common Sense” is mislabeled. It should be “Rare Sense”.
