Messing around with two very different Nikons

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).

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.
