D850 Ship Day!

Ya, this is simply a gorgeous camera! I am really enjoying shooting with it and the images it’s producing. It’s not your father’s D800! Later today a special Podcast will be posted that will cover much more than I can here in writing. I can honestly say that this is the first megapixel camera I really like to shoot! Here’s some more trivia that might help you get started with your new D850. mtc D850 Instruction Manual PDF D850...

The Nikkor 8-15 Fisheye Zoom – a vid overview

The Nikkor 8-15Fish … one helluva lens! I’ve been shooting with it for a month now and have come to appreciate the quality this unique and specialized lens brings to my camera bag. Now shooting this video was a challenge with the Black Bear and the crowd it brought, but I share with you thoughts on the lens, care for it and shooting with it. Check ‘er...

D850 … You Ready?

Pre-orders of the new Nikon D850 are record breaking I’m told by retailers. That’s darn cool, I know I’ve added to that list by two. The B&H site is reporting they will start shipping next week. There is nothing worse than to get a new camera body and not be able to play (you know what I mean) with it from the get go. So now’s the time to figure out your game plan so when that new D850 arrives, you’re ready for it. Here are a couple of the things I’m doing to be ready. First, I watched the Nikon D850 Panel discussions to hear what my peers found and see what they did with the D850 in the limited time they had to shoot with it. From that, the creative thought process began thinking up what I want to photograph first to put the D850 through its paces. It’s key to me to see if a new tool solves problems in our photography business and with all...

Think Tank Streetwalker Roller … Gr8 Bag!

The Think Tank Streetwalker Roller is a great bag! Now darn that Jake though … I was going to do a video on it. But he did such a great job and said it all, why not just share his. Now I had the Streetwalker Roller in England as well and it rocked. Unlike Jake though, mine was stuffed! This is what I had in mine: Nikon D5 Nikon D500 Nikkor 300f4 PF Nikkor 70-200f4 AFS Nikkor 24-70VR Nikkor 105f1.4 Nikkor 50f1.4 Nikkor 24f1.4 Nikkor 8-15Fish Nikkor TC-14eIII SB-5000 Worked killer … check it...

New Nikon 28f1.4 is Schweeet!

I have long loved the 28f1.4 AF lens! The original AF version was spectacularly sharp and the only way you could buy it was used (costing more than the new version). When Nikon announced the new 28f1.4 AFS I got so excited. I already have the 24f1.4, 50f1.4 and 105f1.4, I was thinkin this might just be the ticket for me! Getting right to it, it’s gorgeous! It feels great in the hand and is spectacularly sharp! I have it to shoot at f1.4 and at that f/stop, it performs, oh, does it perform! Already made 24×30 prints so quite sold on the lens. There is a whole lot more shooting to do but oh man, what a lens!...
