I’m back! I had a lovely 4 days in the Eastern Sierras with friends, Rainey, Rene, Nik, and Jonathan. We got lucky and went when the color was peaking in the spots we visited. I have quite a few images I like from the trip that I’m still rating and tagging, but here’s one image I made yesterday at Lee Vining Creek. It was so nice to see the creeks, and streams with water. All the creeks near my home are bone dry!
I made this image with my new camera: The Nikon Df. I’ve been saving for it since I rented one back in February.
I used it for 4 full days of shooting and it performed very well in daylight, and low light. I love how light it is compared to my D700.
Right now I only have two complaints:
1) Nikon did not provide a LCD screen protector with it, so I need to get one STAT!
2) The battery drained too quickly when shooting the last morning in 26º ambient temps. I’ll have to get a 3rd battery soon.
Other than those two complaints I’m happy with the camera. I hope we have many good years together.
As of now my D300s will either be passed down or possibly sold, and my D700 will be my back-up/second camera.
