Ok, I’m spending too much time writing about my new camera

Posted by D under toys

D300 w/ AF-S 80-200 f/2.8 ED lensSo there, I’m willing to admit it. But then again, it seems like I already helped one reader to make up her mind and get a D300 as well, maybe I’ll be starting a trend?

Anyway, K2 was giving me a hard time today when I came back from Pro Photo Supply again and showed her my latest purchases. She was saying things like “Oh my! It’s so big!!“. Pah.

Ok, maybe it’s a little unwieldy – at 2350g or 5.1 American pounds (as pictured here, D300 with the Nikon AF-S 80-200 f/2.8 ED lens that I got today as a bargain (it was pre-owned)) it’s not exactly a light-weight. But it takes amazing pictures. I’m having way too much fun with this…

It was sunny today in Portland – what a nice coincidence!

And here are a couple more low light pictures – this time our cats Percy and Oliver, shot with a Nikon 50mm f/1.4 lens at 1/60s, f/1.4, ISO450 and ISO500, respectively. And just to fill the row a picture of S2 that I really love – this one was done with off-camera flash and the Sigma 17-35mm f/2.8-4.0 lens.

    Looks good. I am glad that you like your new toys. I agree that those settings on the Canon for portrait, action, etc. are useless. I also like the idea of it adjusting the ISO without you having to do it in order to maintain a set shutter speed. I am just married to my Canon’s because of my lenses and I have shot with them for over 30 years since I was a teenager.

    I am enjoying my Rebel XTi and it is a good stop while waiting for a Canon D60 (probably about the time I will want to trade up in 2 to 3 years).

    Have fun. The shots are really good.
