Nikon 24-120VR AFS

This movie requires Flash Player 9 I think the 24-120AFS is so hot, we filmed this segment in 10degree temps (seriously!). The more time I spend with the 24-120AFS, the more I’m really turning to it and finding it as a valuable tool! I think the video says it best, but I’ve come to rely on the 24-120AFS for a lot of day to day photography and entirely for my aviation photography. I’ve come to really depend on this...

Nikon 24f1.4AFS – OMG

How weird, my original post was deleted some how, so I’m having to recreate it. So, let me reintroduce you to Al, one of the Santa Fe locals that was a subject of my 24f1.4 quest. The 24f1.4 is a spectacular lens! Look at Al’s eyes, look at the stubble on his chin, damn is it sharp! The background, just 18″ behind him though is out of flash. WOW!

TC-20eIII Field Results

Oh yeah baby, this is a freakin better design! It’s one think to take a test shot in a sterile environment and it’s a whole other matter shooting in the real world. Well, I finally had the opportunity to use the TC-20e3 actually shooting and to say I’m damned impressed is an understatement.
