5 days,, onto the Nikon DF,, and how is it holding up in impression, very fine, I used it at a sporting event and even with
the slower Auto Focus and such, I found it up to the task. I took a pile of action shots, using my Nikkor 300 F4 lens, on
The shots in post edit, barely needed any tweaking besides the standard RAW to JPEG flow. The colors were vibrant, and
the details there, with zero noise reduction needed.
I switched to allow Aperture control on the lens, to keep it super old school. I shot with it for about 2 hours, and found
the weight not distracting at all. Put a AF prime on the body, and one has a great city camera, keep the other AF Primes
in the pocket, and you can really go liight, Not as light as say a Fuji Xt1 or XT2,, but still compared to my D800,, way
I went from bright outdoors to indoors, and just cranked up the ISO to 3200, and presto. i can tell now that this
will be the teaching camera I use, just so convenient with a broad range of uses.
oh,, and yup, the door falls off, and you have to put it back on,, and same battery as my CoolPix,, sometimes the way
Nikon Cheaped out, has me scratching my head, for example, for a 3K camera, why have any fake chrome plastics,
but hey, just the way it is,, what is amazing is how quiet this shutter is! The 610 must also have a quiet shutter, since
I hear it was taken from that camera, and it is amazingly quiet. I have never had an SLR this quiet, I wonder how this
translates to sharper images? less noise, less vibration?
anyhow, let the Honeymoon phase continue.
Here is a random pick of the action shot,0 Thanks/Like
