Taken just the other night while walking my dog. Seen these guys around (two of them from what I've seen) several nights and have kept a eye on me so to speak.

Had to fix the eye closest to me as it was a big red eye even with the red-eye flash.....

Here is a picture I took to demonstrate the amazing resolution of the D800e. This was done with a tripod mounted Nikon 80-200/2.8 AF-S lens at 86 mm on my D800e (before it went into the shop the first time). Exposure was 1/200 sec @ f/5.6 and ISO 100.

And here is a 100% crop from near the center. It's compromised a bit by the JPEG compression needed to meet the posting limits.

Some have already seen this, but last week I posted an album of photos I took on the coast of Maine, shooting with my D800. I think they are a pretty good representation of D800 photos.

Great idea Chris. I was thinking nearly the same thing except I was going to start a post with - What to do? What do you shoot for fun with the D800/E?

Now I'm kinda embarrassed after seeing the other post but what the hey my photos came from near boredom. So here's mine -

I have a couple of photos envisioned but they are dependent on the weather conditions, conditions I have been waiting for a couple of years now. Early Friday evening it looked like I was going to have an opportunity to see if I could record one of my visions. Two hours later the clouds came in covering the San Diego Bay and horizon destroying the near perfect conditions for my vision and leaving me to take this photo at 7 pm.

Saturday kicked off to be as exciting, it was day to get an oil change, see about some brakes, pickup some shoes at the shoe shop and well, what else was there to do. By 11:30 I had the important stuff done, so off to the car wash.

Click on image to view larger version


Why not roam around during the worst of the day for taking photographs, and see what would happen!

Anyway there are several more in my Boring Saturday album in my Nikonians Gallery.

I'm just lovin the D800!

Just curious... I have the D800 and have been getting terrific pics and quite frankly i can't see any difference in iq compared to posted 800e pics. I am not trying to compare the 2 cameras as I know 800e captures more detail...but can someone who knows for sure please confirm that the images on the web would show that extra detail if taken by the same photographer with the same lighting, settings and technique? This is more of a question regarding the detail capabilites for web pics that have been shot, downsampled to the same size and in a controlled test.

It's HIGHLY unlikely you'd see any difference at all unless the photos were offered up at 1:1 sizes. By the time you convert to jpg and shrink to web size, any advantage of the (E) is likely to be lost. This is why I didn't bother with the (E). The great majority of my stuff will end up either on the web, or printed at 16x20 or smaller. The (E) version wasn't worth the wait or expense for me.

The images below were taken a couple of days ago in Northwest Tucson, Arizona, near the town of Marana. I was in the backyard, and the sky was full of lightning. I have hundreds of these images. I used the new Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC lens and I'm VERY happy with it.

The "mountain" in the images is called Sombrero Peak and it is about 1,000 feet high and less than a mile from the backyard location.

NO post processing on any of the images.

Way cool! How long did you keep the shutter open to capture a burst?

For me to shoot lightning I've have to stand in Central Park and my wife won't let me. Not sure if she's concerned for me or the equipment…

I can envision some outrageous PP on any of these images…

Here are 4 shots (2 originals with a 100% crop) from my first outing with the D800. All shots were handheld and converted to jpeg in CS6, resized for posting.

This shoot was when I realized just how much I had to learn about the D800 and improve my technique. It is also when I realized that I had the left focus point blues.

Jon,

In ALL images, the shutter was set for 20 seconds (F10), BUT, all the images are actually showing ONE flash of display that happened all at once.

In other words, no two instances of lightning were captured in any image. Yes, the shutter was open for 20 seconds, but every image shows one second or less of 'lightning attack'. The show went on for four hours.... I was drained....

I shot this dragon fly on the wing at 1/4000s and f/6.3 with my 200-400mm and D800E...manual focus. Yes, it was tricky...and took many shots to get the frame I wanted.

I love my D800 and I'm still learning what it can do.

Experimenting with "Auto ISO" and Aperture Priority (the D800 detects the lens and focal length and sets a darn good ISO).

This is a snap shot of a small dragon fly that didn't stay in one place long.

Old model 24 -85 f 3.5 4.5 ISO 640 f/10 1/250 sec.

The 24 -85mm zoom is no macro lens and this image was cropped out of a larger one.

Agree with others -- some amazing work here! While I'm not overly pleased with my composition on these, I think the detail in the crops is pretty amazing (they're straight crops -- they didn't receive any special PP work).

Here is a pic I took today, just playing around with my camera. Shot taken raw, no post processing except resize and converting to Jpeg. Look at the 100% crop of the boat, even read the license numbers on the boat.

info - hand held, 70-200MM vr2 at 145mm, f7.1, 1/320s, picture control set for landscape, matrix metering, ISO 200 shot in very bright conditions 6:30 pm in Minneapolis, sun was still very bright

Amazing photographs from so many people! I am glad that at least I have the right equipment even though my skills are still very far behind.

The few pics that I am not embarrassed to share are posted online:

This is one I took at Machu Picchu at sunrise. It's been cropped from the original photo and I was surprised how much detail was left after having done so.

Great shots! The dot caught my eye right off. Looks like a hot pixel, but with it moving I am scratching my head. But they are all 3 green. Aliens. That's what it is.

Nice shots. Zoom in further on the image and see if the dots are actually little crosses. It looks like a hot pixel in each to me. Pixels can become 'hot' or 'not' depending on the ISO used and length of exposure (sensor temperature).

Like I said all shots are at iso100 and all 1/400th or faster I believe. Also all were hand held so shows how well a faster shutter speed and VR work... Also these are already 100% crops, but I will zoom further and see how many pixels the dot really is... Also Lightrooms sharpening caused the dot to go green, and NR didn't get rid of the dot either makes me think it could be something.....

Green pixel is one very bright one with 4 very very light ones around it that looks like a "+" sign so to speak, but have to bump exposure +2.0 to see it.

Added info to pics for reference....

Hi Chris!

Just a thought - could your dot be the ISS? From your position and the time of the photos I think you could check if it could be the ISS using the NASA website.

I saw an amazing shot of the ISS crossing the shadow of the moon on the sun in an eclipse last year. It came back to mind.

Anyway they are nice moon shots!

First you need go go out of town.
Even if you got best lens in the world it will still not take any good shots of the moon if you are fighting with smog, city lights and atmospheric distortion.
The best indicator if you have clear sky is if you can see billions of stars with the naked eye.

Which 70-200 were you using and which TC2.0???? Also try F8.0 or F11.0 with spot metering... should be better then F16.0 and 1/30th....

I've been looking at maybe getting the TC2.0III to use with my 70-200 VRII.. but am wondering how much IQ I will loose...

Hi Chris,
I have VRII and the TC 2.0 III (the newer version) . I like that combo.

Thank you much for the sugggestions, I didn't even think about spot metering.

For the moon photos, don't forget Digital Darrell's article. He posted a reference in an earlier forum at Super Moon time.

https://www.facebook.com/notes/ct-digital-photography/shooting-the-moon/383879814988997

Also curious what Chris decided about the spot - ISS, hot pixels or ...?
