Photography anyone? Nikon D850
« on: December 15, 2017, 09:26:09 PM »
Anyone here into photography?  I took it up as a hobby back in 2014.  I just picked up the newest DSLR camera from Nikon, The D850.  All I have to say is WOW. This truly is an amazing camera coming in at 45.7 megapixels.  Too many features to list. It's by far the finest camera I've ever used, and for 120,000 baht just for the body only, it better be!

Some sample photos I took.

The object is well-focused with details of the moment, but it seems to lack a good autofocus on depth of field. In sports pictures need a sense of motion of the object by (also) depicting a focused background.

Aye.  I shot those purposely at 2.8F to blur the background. I was trying to focus more on the individual and not direct attention to the heavily colored backgrounds at this tournament, not to mention the occasional Thai going to town on a booger in the background...I think you know what I mean.  The place was totally overdone with the decoration and sponsor ads.  Good point, though. I got some other fantastic shots at F6-F11 stop. The sensor on this camera has an amazing dynamic range.  I was considering a Sony, but the Sony's are just too toyish for me.  They don't fit well in my hand, and the lack of lenses for them leaves me wanting more.  I can't understand why Sony still sticks with SD cards when they were the ones who pioneered the XQD memory cards which are faster at 400mb/s transfer rate.  Battery life is another issue with the Sony. I can hardly wait to take some landscape shots.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about.  Too much stuff in the background kind of takes away from the player.  I don't know.  What do you think?

This one is kind of cool.  Mother doing the hair check for her daughter before a tournament.

My son actually won the championship for singles and doubles.  He's ranked the number one player now in Thailand for the year ending 2017 age group 8 and under. Nice way to finish off the season and I'm so proud of him.
