In order to familiarize myself with the D3 and many AF mode, I went to 20km from Brussels to test and become familiar with a case nothing like the real conditions. I took two goals on 12/24 (DX) from home and tokina 80/200 2.8 Nikon.
Heavy Overcast (with bonus rain when I arrived) that quickly cleared to make way for a beautiful sun (note to self: always take the pola filter even if the weather allows only bode well).
I first used the 80/200 2.8 on the D3 to have a nice compression plans while making the subject better, AF is faster than the D200, as announced vignetting is This is fully open. The D3 has a vignetting correction that can be activated, I guess it cleared up the edges slightly to make adjustments but I have not tested yet.
I tested the famous 3D mode followed, it's pretty, it's full of small collimators which are small drawings and follow the subject, apart from that, it does not put me my focus and I want the I am pressed AFC has a (continuous autofocus).
The AFC is very powerful, lack of collimators is quite frustrating, most of the time I tend to use my central point by memorizing my focus and shifting before my image, in this case the subject movement is clearly impossible.
Somewhere I wonder what the impact of this lack of collimators on the global production of images, I feel that it will help more in the images of sport has composed more focused than before (this that will get sorted out in a box pro full frame with collimators covering the full frame).
Rendering images is stunning, it moutonne, that crunch, it softens, it will revert to the original, my songs are very level plane, no risk-taking, a side order of release was assumed to play with the case, test its speed (the burst is impressive) while the real condition.
THE KENYAN Kiptarbei has become the 20 km of Brussels, having countered Rik Ceulemans. In women, Baouf win without competition.
And high isos?
It's coming! I am preparing a series of images of portraits to be precise with only light the light of the city, so soon images that exploit the beast and make you wait for a picture of Thomas who kindly be my guinea pig for small test isos 2000
