Just back from a week at Duck/Southern Shores on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I was blessed with phenomenal weather despite or perhaps, in spite of the weather prognosticators who kept predicting a washout. I think I spent more time out with the cameras this time than I ever have; out twice a day roaming the banks for hours on end. I filled up three 16 Gb SD cards and two compact flash cards. With weather like I had, it was hard not to snap a keeper. This is the dawn on the beach at Duck September 15th. Sorry for the tilted horizon. Too much Blue Moon Beer.
New Camera from Nikon
Nikon has released the D750, supposedly the replacement for the legendary D700 which was released years ago. I loved the D700 and while the new camera has most of the bells and whistles one would expect in a professional/consumer level camera, the non-pro body left me cold. I passed on it then along comes B and H Photo Video in New York where I buy much of my photography gear with a terrific deal on a factory refurbished Nikon D800E. It was too good to pass up so I traded in my faithful D700. Nikon’s advertising for the D800E was to the effect that “you’re going to shoot everything all over again.” I believe it. The resolution is mind blowing. I’m already thinking about a return to Duck to reshoot everything.
Thanks for the look in and have a great week ahead.
