In Topic: Is this right? Focus issues using teleconverter

Yesterday, 09:51 PM

Which teleconverter is it? 1.2 doesn’t make sense.

 

What do you mean by ”edit for a closer image of the target”?

 

What shutter speed do you end up with?

 

Can you show us a sample photo?

Today's capture is a street shot showing the complete desolation of a restaurant's permanent outdoor seating area midwinter when the autumn storms have shredded the canvas roof... At least, that is what I was aiming for.

I read that you were aware of the problems already…

For exposures, just make sure that you protect the highlights. Blown highlights can never be recovered fully. Underexposure leads to noise, but this can be reduced in postprocessing without losing fine detail with the right software.

 

Why use all the bells and whistles when you can keep control over the important parameters in manual, but with AutoISO active and using the exposure compensation to override. With the D600 generation of Matrix metering in your Df, you are better off using center-weighted as Matrix will misidentify the scene occasionally. The meter is weighted more to the center  than the F2 and FE meters. The pattern is very similar to the F3 meter.

 

Remember that you have room for a slight crop. 12 clean megapixels are enough for prints on 17” paper stock, you have 16 available… 


In Topic: Advise on wide angle lens to pair with a D850

Yesterday, 01:21 AM

I looked at it recently. And from reviews it has excellent IQ. BUT, the deal breaker for me it does not except screw in filters. The work around is clumsy Lee type attachments. 

Just out of curiosity, what filters would you use with an ultrawide that aren’t as clumsy as the Lee 150 mm setup?

 

Polarizers aren’t usable at 24 mm or wider because the lens takes in too much sky with polarisation at different angles. Screwing in a 112 mm or larger filter is a clumsy operation compared to just sliding in a filter in a holder that is already mounted on the lens. Graduated ND filters are not screw-in anyway.
