Had the D800 out yesterday and took these (and many others) but one of the two really got my attention.
This first one is not my bathtub! These ducklings were really enjoying the turbulence at the bottom of this waterfall.
But more significantly, I had been reading that the low light capability of the D800 was potentially questionable. This image was captured in available light using the AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VR. Granted the VR helped a bunch, but we are still talking about an aperture of f/4. I didn't look at the ISO, but I don't think I had it set higher than 5000. I am very satisfied!
Hi Phil! Good to hear from you. I agree about the depth of field, but those apertures don't help gathering light, and that was what I was referring to.
What's even more interesting now that you mention it, is that there is a lot more depth in that image than I would expect any of those apertures would provide (there has got to be something I'm missing here), so where is that depth coming from? Having said that however, I did not consider the hyperfocal distance, etc.
Thanks Devek. Thinking about your question, I was using a 300mm lens and I think I was about between 15 - 20 feet from them (not a difficult shot at all - the biggest risk was their mom who was sitting about 3 - 4 feet to my left watching them - and me - very closely).
