Early Xmas Present from Nikon
I have been lucky enough to be given a D3s and the new 70-200mm f/2.8 to play with over the christmas break by Nikon. I want to thank Julie for sending this gear over and trusting me to look after it. In fact it hasn’t left my side since getting it a couple of days ago. This camera continues to impress me and the lens is superb. The auto focus is brilliant and you just know every shot is going to be pin sharp. I could see this outfit being the ultimate wedding portrait tool, not to mention a cracker for landscapers that are into stitching. I did a landscape yesterday that I will post asap. Yesterday I wanted to get the d3s into the studio for a test under lighting and the results are shown below. Had it on infra red mode to capture this native of Pandora lurking in the back of the studio. Ok, I saw Avatar this week and was almost as blown away by the movie as by this new Nikon outfit. Hell I love em both!
how’s the sharpness of this, and I actually ran a gaussian blur over the image to soften the skin a tad. Pretty cool.
