"D7100 in action at Costa Rica"


Miami, US
          

Just returned from Costa Rica where I took my D7100 coupled with the 18-300mm lens that used 100% of the time. Many of the pics were taken with a high ISO sometimes up to 3200 with very god results. All pics taken hand held. Check the following tabs on my website. Landscapes, wildlife, sunrise to sunset, etc. Took over 3k pics and just posted a few. Your comments are appreciated.

Really nice stuff! I, too would like to see the exif, but if you'd rather not, maybe we could come up with a way to help me with a decision I'm nearly ready to make. I have

= D7000
= Tamron 17-50/2.8 (mostly for portrait and video)
= Nikon 70-300/4.5-5.6 (for longer distance stuff)

I've been scratching around looking at pictures and yours are the closest I've found to what I'm thinking -- a Nikon 18-300/3.5-5.6 as a single lens solution for my work (samples at johnmesseder.com/).

I write a couple of columns, mostly about water issues, with stills (and getting into video) for illustration. The Tamron works great for portraits and video, and it's what I mount when I know that's what I'm doing, but changing lenses in some places is risky at best, especially when the situations mean multiple swaps, so I'm wondering how the 18-300 actually performs.

It looks as though you've got it working pretty well. I'm wondering whether you, or anyone here, knows whether the 7000 would be any different.

First of all I want to thank all of you for your kind comments. Some of you asked me if I could provide the EXIF and to be perfectly honest with you, I don' have the slightest idea on how to do it.

John, I have a D7000 and I have been really satisfied since I purchased it. I think I bought the first one that arrived at my local store and used it mainly for the compactness and the 16mp capability. Jut before visiting Costa Rica, I paid a visit to my daughters in Raleigh where I used the D7000 coupled with the 18-300 resulting in pics that were very pleasing to my expectations. I also had the opportunity to take action shots using this combo with my grandson who pitches for NC State with solid performance under low light conditions. I wanted to take the D7100 with me to Raleigh but it arrived at my local store a couple of days after I have left home.

The reason why I bought the D7100 was mainly because of it's 24mp, the ability to bracket for HDR from 3 max by the D7000 to 5 or 7 exposures with high resolution situations when needed. Going back to the 18-300 lens, I decided to buy it when it came out since I had previously owned the 18-200 with good results but always felt the need to have additional reach. I took my old reliable 12-24 Nikon lens and never left the bag. The main reason is that I try to avoid if at all possible, changing lens under adverse conditions especially in humid or dusty places such as Costa Rica and I am glad I kept the 18-300 coupled with the D7100 especially at the Arenal canopy where it never stopped raining and I just simply couldn't use the camera due to the circumstances.
I used Auto ISO in many instances starting at 800 with maximum of 3200 and no less than 640 and 1000 minimum shutter speed. In many cases I had to push the EV to +2 because of the poor lighting in the rain forest due to fog or rain. All pictures were handheld sometimes using VR. Shot a few using the P setting but most were Aperture or Speed preferred. Extremely fast focusing with virtually no focusing hunting under poor light. Used Continuous AF in most instances however, I also used single for landscapes.
I will posting a few more soon.
Again, I want to thank all of you for your kind comments. They are greatly appreciated.

You site feels like it's SmugMug based. If so, log in, go to the gallery of interest, and look for the Tools drop list. Select Gallery Settings. Under Look & Feel, check Yes for Camera Info.

BTW, at the top of the Gallery Settings dialog, there's a selection to Change Settings for. You can set for either the currently selected gallery, or all of them.

And if I'm wrong about you're using SmugMug, you may go back and unread the foregoing. =)

Beautiful work. Amazing that it was done with a lens so many people knock. Yet again, it's the person behind the lens that matters most. You have a very good eye.

Superb shots!
I love the texture and feel of your photos. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and you have shown tastes of it well.
I also have a D7100 and a 18-300 lens, I am quickly becoming a fan.
Thanks for the fine contributions,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for such positive comments. I am really flattered especially coming from my fellow Nikonians. My website has received over 12K hits thanks to many of you that showed genuine interest on what this camera can do with just an 18-300mm lens. You have renewed my interest in becoming a better photographer which has always been my passion. Now that I am retired, I plan to polish my skills although limited with weight because of back problems.
God bless!!!

Hi Tony, excellent images. You have made me realize that I should really work to become a better photographer or, at least, a photographer .

I do not know if the problem of EXIF data is with your Smugmug settings but worth a look. Go to you gallery settings in "Look and Feel" and see if you have "Camera info" set to yes or no. Otherwise you'll have to check your PP program.

Many thanks for the link

Nice pictures but cannot find any of Costa Rica.
Only ones I could ID were Big Sur, Amsterdam, and San Francisco.

Tony: You are truly a talented and skilled artist. I love your photos, especially your sunsets. Thank you for sharing with us. When my kids get older, and I have more time to travel, I'd like to get back into shooting landscapes and architecture again. Your work is a good standard to aspire to.

Do you do a lot of post processing in your work?

Your Costa Rica shots are proof that you don;t need to carry around a $3,000+ camera body and a bag of giant f2.8 zooms to get artistic, professional results. For this type of photography, a D7000 and a decent variable aperture zoom are all you need. I play pool, and we always say "...a professional can beat any one of us playing with a broomstick."

Ryan,
Thanks for your kind comments. Glad you liked the pictures. I try to do very little post processing since my eyesight is not that good due to glaucoma and I can't spend too much time in front of a monitor. I also have back problems therefore; last year I decided to start taking only one camera body and just one lens to minimize the weight. I figured that if I needed a wide angle, my body would try to capture the angle that I wanted by moving back whenever possible. I also have the D800 coupled with a 28-300 that I used last year during a European river cruise since I didn't have to carry the equipment for long stretches. I have the 2.8s at home and only use them if I don't have to walk with them. I learned to compromise with the slower lenses and I must say that thanks to the new camera bodies where I can push the ISO to unimaginable settings a short while ago, I am able to capture pics that I never thought I could.
Once again, thanks for your kind comments. They are greatly appreciated.

Great shots Tony. The one that I think particularly typifies the clarity and sharpness of the D7100 is "Coral Gables". Terrific gallery with many shots taken in Amalfi, Florence etc. exactly where I've photographed the same views
