Z70-200f2.8 & Z1.4x, Schweet!

Nikkor Z70-200f2.8 & Nikkor Z1.4x photo courtesy Nikon The New Year has brought a couple of new additions to the equipment locker and I can’t stop shooting with them! I have two projects coming up in 2021 where I need the reach and narrow DoF of the Z70-200f2.8 so I called my friends at Bedford Camera who instantly put it in my hands! My projects, one critter, and one aviation I feel need that 200f2.8 DoF and attached to the Z 6II, well just make a great combo (and a perfect complement to the D6 / 180-400VR I’ll be shooting with). Maggie captured by Z 6II / Z70-200f2.8 Why then did I get the Z1.4x? I have no direct need for it at the moment but it goes great with the Z70-200f2.8 so I wanted the option in the kit. I’ve not had the lens that long but I like what I have seen so far. Same basic size and weight as the F Mount 70-200f2.8, same filter size...

Taking Inventory, 2020

Camera gear, the end of 2010 At the end of the year, businesswise, you’ve gotta take inventory for tax purposes. I’ve always taken this as a hint to look at the gear in the locker and challenge myself by asking if it should remain there. Looking back ten years and comparing the locker in 2010 with what’s in the locker right now, only three of the lenses pictured above remain. This revelation, is it a good or bad thing? You might ask yourself if so little still remains in your kit if you might have purchased the wrong equipment to start with. On the other hand, you might think that technology has really advanced being the reason for the big change. Then, on the other hand, it could be that your photography has evolved to the point that much that old gear had to be replaced by new. Personally, I look at all the gear in the locker as tools. While I love camera gear, really addicted to it...

Yep, You Can Use Either

It’s a beautiful thing, running ProGrade CFexpress in my D6, Z 6II, and now D5! The firmware does other goods things too but it’s the upgrade to CFexpress that’s truly exciting. I’ve run both XQD and CFexpress in the D5 since the upgrade, no issues but CFexpress is now what lives in the...

The Nikon Z 6II – ZOW!

photo courtesy Nikon I know, zow, but I’m of the old Batman series age and that’s what came to my mind the first time I hit the AF-ON button. The Z 6II has two Expeed6 processors with one dedicated to the AF system and man, does it sing. Zow (I couldn’t help myself)! The speed, both in AF operation and in frames per second (14fps) is why I picked up the Z 6II (still keeping my Z 6). Yeah, it has dual card slots (the 2nd being SD and there are new settings for that) but that has never been important to me. Having the same sensor as the Z 6, I already had the image quality my clients require, I just wanted the new extra speed. Luckily, I had an instant subject to challenge the system. Maggie captured by Z 6II / Z24-70f2.8 @2.8 The marvelous Ms Maggie has been a “test” subject for the Z 6II faster system. This includes the Pet Eye Detection which is part...

Nikon Webcam Mac & Win

Nikon has released a Beta of their Webcam software for Mac (Windows released a little while ago). The beauty of this FREE software is the ability to plug your Z or DSLR (only some of them) via USB directly into your computer for web conferencing. This is pretty darn cool and if you have a program subscription to Ecamm Live for example, you don’t need a HDMI cable and card. I’ve tested it and it works really cleanly and easily, basicly plug and play. With being “seen” virtually is so much of our lives now, this makes it simpler for...
