"What level do you shoot at?"


Ocean Grove, AU
          

Hi, what mpx level do you set the D7000 to when firing off?

The full 16 mpx or back off to 'Medium' setting level.

What's the relative merits of selecting the various settings. I have a large HD on my Mac, so storage is not a problem.

The issue of emailing directly from Aperture may cause a problem with file size, even though this is adjustable in settings/preferences.

Advice appreciated.

Ron

Probably the majority of all members of Nikonians shoot in RAW, D7000 or anything else, so, 16mpx, and BIG NEF files.

16 MPX w 14 bit color.
In general any thing less does not use full capability of camera.
If shooting a lot of bursts and running up against the buffer I may switch to jpeg fine.
I found if I use lossy RAW compression I get 11 as opposed to 10 images in a burst so I will experiment with this for wildlife.

Storage is now very cheap so I'm not sure why you would shoot less than 16MP.

If I was only shooting for web posting I'd have bought a D40 on Ebay, and still been way ahead of the game.

But for image quality, that I've never been able to access before, apart from the D3X, I use the Best/largest quality JPEGs or the RAW settings on the D7000.

Why would someone purchase Maserati for stop and go commuter traffic?

For me, the D7000 isn't male jewelry. It's a tool.

Yup, shooting for all I paid for. Deleting 90%, but expecting to capture a masterpiece anytime now. I would be disappointed if it came out in a small jpeg...

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.
