#13350 What is Nikons' best FX DSLR for its' price?

Posted by wedgtail on 12 January 2014 - 04:53 PM

D600 refurb is only $1299 now http://cametacamera....d=wpefAGf2g/g& , made the jump to it recently

A good way to go I have had my D600 for a year now with a 7000+ shutter count and it has no signs of a dirty sensor.

I have a D600 and a 7000 as a back up body I do a lot off event photography late at night one thing I have learnt over the years is not to advertise what gear you are carrying . Just my preference for my safety to not advertise how much money is invested in that small by most peoples standards plane no name camera bag slung over my shoulder. 

#11259 Most memorable shot you made

Posted by wedgtail on 10 December 2013 - 10:00 PM



This one is part of a series that I was called into shoot literally dragged of the street by the club owner as the booked photographer din't show .
I had my D600 with my trusty Tamron 24-70 2.8 . just like the composition and the way the stage light fall on the performer the place was packed so I could not move around ,just had to shoot from one spot.

Snow flakes are in short supply here I live in the driest state on the driest continent on earth .

Hope we weren't bidding against each other I picked up a 7000  in an auction as well on the weekend as a back up to my D600   :)

Now for that cheap 70-200 2.8 in my dreams 

#10746 The Perfect Kit

Posted by wedgtail on 03 December 2013 - 09:23 PM

check out the 105 2 d as a portrait lens i prefer it to the 85 and you can play with the forground and background focus on this lens its a one of a kind to Nikon

#9965 To prime or not to prime. That is the question?

Posted by wedgtail on 24 November 2013 - 05:51 PM

Primes really make you think about your shots and are a great learning tool . 

#9963 Lucky Score...

Posted by wedgtail on 24 November 2013 - 05:44 PM

I picked up a near mint 20mm 2.8 at a gararge sale 12 months ago supposedly not working for 10.00 all Ihad to do was set it on f16 and it worked a treat .

That arm (or whatever it is) in the right part of the image is very distracting. Easily fixable in post.

ok I see what you mean now not the models arm
