I finally got around to shooting off a few frames in the studio, I am impressed with this lttle camera, I cannot say there is anything that I do not like about its performance.
Still waiting on a battery grip just to make it feel bigger in my hands.
I was also given a couple of new batteries, not Nikons own but a company called Hahnel, both failed to perform at all, they took a full charge from the charger but when put into the camera they where both fully discharged. They are on their way back and I am waiting patiently for the Nikon ones to come.

Attached is a couple of shots of a young lady doing work experience with me, we had a slow day so set up my studio lights in every setup I could think of. These are a couple of her favourites, she also took my headshot, so I have included one of those as well.

Cheers

Phil

Hello Phil

Nice images.

Image 2 impresses me most. Probably it'd have been nice if you could've eliminated the light spill on tip of subject's nose.

Cheers

Focus looks out on #2. Yes?

No, focus is spot on, we were using Lee Soft Focus filters, this is probably a number 3, the number 5 was way too soft / diffuse and the number 1 barely noticeable.

Thanks for commenting.

Hi Sam, thanks for commenting, the only light spill that I can see is on my own nose, image 3, and yes this could easily be dealt with. But considering the young lady that took the shot is only 15, I think she did really well.

Regards

Phil

Ahh gotcha! I knew it looked "soft". Much more so than the other images. Thanks for clarifying.
