A Subtle Difference

This shot taken just before sunset in the eastern sky illustrates wonderfully the ability of the Nikon D700 full frame camera to pull out the ever so slight differences in color and tone in a low light situation.  The camera has the same megapixel load as the D90 (12) but the fact that they are spread across a sensor the size of a traditional 35mm frame makes an incredible difference.  I was anticipating some improvement in this regard over my DX format cameras but this totally blew me away.  The smaller sensor has its place, particularly in close up work on flowers for example but the FX format (full frame) is leap years ahead in the realm of landscape photography.  See you next time on msot of this same site.
