Playing With the New Toy
This morning I went into the city to take some photos with my new camera. I couldn’t wait to start playing around with it. I just haven’t had the chance before today. I went into the city with my photography buddy and the first place we headed to was the library.
My friend and I went to the library a couple of months ago and we took photos in the Domed Reading Room. I used my 14-24mm lens, and got as much of the room as I could. So I was dying to get back in there to see how much more I could get with the D800’s full frame and my lens really being a 14-24mm.
The images I took last time.
These weren’t bad, but I had to wonder if I could get more in the frame. So here are the images I took today.
How much more of the room is there? It is amazing. I don’t know if they are great images, but I love how much detail you can get, you can really show the rooms off. I love the full frame and I really like how my lenses are now what they are meant to be. I haven’t tried all my lenses on it yet, plenty of time for that.
I am finding the camera quite different to the D300s, especially the shutter, it is much louder and clunkier. It also doesn’t go as far as the D300s, it is something that will take a bit of getting used to. When I do bracketed shots on the D300s, it is bam, bam, bam, done, very quick, but with the D800, I have to almost wait for it to happen. It doesn’t take them as quickly. Oh, well, just something I will have to get used to, as I already said.
I am going to do a gallery now so you can compare the images better, hopefully they will go from old to new, each time.
Just on a final note, can I just say, I love my new camera.
