Small Files – When with Z7 / D850?

I was out shooting with a friend and they saw in My Menu on the Z7 I had the menu option Image Size. They asked why … why would you want to limit the size of the file if you’d paid for a megapixel camera? Now that’s a really darn good question. I think my response surprised them so I thought I’d share it with you. To start off with, the Z7 and D850 have an option to change the file size they record. The Large file for the Z7 is a 45.4MB Nef (260MB once opened in PS) for example. That’s a great big, gorgeous file that prints up big and beautiful. And when you come back from a week of shooting and file 4000 of those big, gorgeous images, that’s a lot of hard drive space eaten up. But what if you’re not going to make big ass prints, do you need those big files? In this example, I was taking some family portraits in less than...

Targeted Landscape

The story of the Grand Tetons to me is often best told in B&W. Their size, majesty, and sheer beauty fly off the page in those tones. And when you add fresh snow, well I just gotta express that all in B&W. And if there is one thing the Z7 does extremely well, it’s B&W! It’s then no surprise that I’ve spent my week in the Grand Tetons with the Z7 shooting B&W, and I’m loving my results! Playing dodge with the snow front, the Tetons pop in and out. And when they do that at the same time with the sun, I’ve got the 180-400VR trained on those spots. Since I want to use the Z7, I’m connecting the two with the FTZ and the combo as you can see works out beautifully! The best part as far as I’m concerned is the post-processing, that because there is none! If you’ve followed my blog for years, it seems about every six months I find a better way to...

Grand Beauty

Wow, just wow! That doesn’t even really sum up our time so far in the Grand Tetons. The sun found us at The Oxbow watching as the snow started to settle in for the day. Before it closed in, the sun squeaked through to light up the peaks and fall color for a spectacular sunrise. I shot with just the Z7 / Z24-70 until the light was squeezed out then I turned to longer to capture some gorgeous B&W. Shooting hand-held at 1/25 was pretty darn easy with the captured by Z7 / Z24-70 which made the shooting not only fun, but successful....
