"More fun with a small sensor"

While I was waiting for my son's basketball practice to finish today I went down to the local cove and took photos of some cooperative gulls using my V1, FT-1 and AF-S 400 f/2.8.

Here's a shot along with a 100% crop, converted to TIFF using ViewNX 2 and cropped in Photoshop. (No additional sharpening applied to the 100% crop):








Then, just to be wild and crazy, I added my TC-17EII to the set-up. That's right, a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 1836mm!

Here's an oddity... the V1 reported the 400 focal length correctly in the EXIF, but when I added the 1.7 TC it reported the FL as 950mm instead of the correct 680. That's off by a factor of 1.4 for some reason.

Maybe the exit data won't go that high and wrapped around some how. Pictures are amazing at that length.

I tried using my Sigma 150-500mm OS lens with the FT-1. I get a message saying "attach lens". I guess the camera software can't recognize a non-Nikon lens. Too bad, the result would have been impressive.

Hmmm... worked just fine with my Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 (non-OS) lens.

I took the N1V2 out with a 600 mm f/4 lens today. On a sunny day, need to try it with a Questar birding telescope.
