"D7000 Dynamic range..."

OK, this is a lousy image, BUT it shows the dynamic range inherent in the D7000.

This is converted straight from RAW to JPEG for this post. No PP involved. Active DLighting set in camera on HIGH. Note the texture in the foreground snow, and the shadow detail in the trees at left.

As GREAT as it was, my D200 could NEVER have handled this without a good deal of PP.

Indeed, TWO thumbs up, I find nothing lousy about this image, except for some distorsion (and those damn wires). BTW, which lens did you use, if I may ask?

1. Good content, good aesthetics and good tecnique. On that order.
2. Light is more important than glass and pixels.
3. In the digital photography process, software is as important as gear.

At 8mm is could only be the Sigma 8-16.

The detail in the snow is really impressive for both camera and lens.

Yes, the Sigma 8-16mm on a quick run out to the driveway when the sun popped out...

I think the shot is initially a bit freaky looking because the subject combined with wide angle perspective distortion looks a lot like a Google StreetView capture. Then all the fine details begin to appear along with a completely natural looking sky and a complete absence of blowouts. The D7000 combined with an optically clean lens exceeds, by far, many of the technical capabilities of pro Nikon bodies of just a few years ago.

Somebody send this shot to the Google StreetView people. I guarantee they'll be buying D7000 bodies and Nikkor 16-85 VR lenses immediately thereafter.

Can't speak to Google, but this image was a grab shot, done at 8mm...

Here's something that confuses me. I didn't think active D Lighting made any difference to RAW files. Did you convert to JPEG using Nikon software and would that make any difference? I use RAW and Lightroom/Camera Raw and never set active D lighting. I did have a go at a few test shots with and without ADL but couldn't notice any difference.

Thanks for all the informative posts

Dawn.

The EXIF data says ViewNX 2. Thus the camera settings were probably applied during the conversion, which ACR would not do.
