#78635 Messing around with two very different Nikons

Posted by krag96 on 15 May 2022 - 04:11 PM

This morning I took some shots in the back yard with one of my ever trusty D700's, (manual).  Boredom set in this afternoon and I decided to try  the same shots with the D5500, (auto-I hate messing with the screen/menu.  WHERE'S MY BUTTONS AND DIALS!?).  Now, the D5500 takes great photos, I simply hate messing with it, hence it lives on auto, (unless I'm feeling very calm and willing to put up with it's hidden controls). 

 

No shooting info, just the finished product, (D700-M  D5500-A). The lighting was a bit different, brighter in the morning for the D700.  Lenses were different also, D700 used a Tamron 90mm f2.8 272E D5500 used a Nikkor 24-120 f4, ( I forgot the Tamron works just fine on the D5500 and used the newer Nikkor G lens because I knew it worked great on the little D5500).

Peter, I share your sorrow.  Dad left us in 1978, and mom in 2003.  So much was left unsaid, and I miss them as I know you miss your parents.  Dwell on the fond memories my friend, and may a gentle hand or paw be upon your shoulder.

This guy has super hearing powers.  I try almost daily to sneak up on him from the desk, which is right beside the recliner he sleeps in.  He not only has super hearing, but radar as well.  I caught him in a deep sleep when the radar was dull and got these in bursts of CH=8fps with the super charged battery grip on a D700.  Of course it woke him.

 

Fast asleep.

All you moon shooters, mark your calendars for this years ''super moons''. 

 

There will be a Super Strawberry Moon on June 14 and a Super Buck Moon on July 13.  Hope for clear sky and scout a good position!

 

Another site lists May 16 and August 12 as super moons also, however they won't be as close as the June and July Super Moons.

 

May 16-225,015 miles

 

June 14-222,238 miles

 

July 13-222,089 miles

 

August 12-224,569 miles
