2009 08-06 D700 came today! Woohoo! I thought bike racing, and kid pics in the dark would be good first challenges for putting it through it’s paces. This shot doesn’t really show much different than the D300, but in the evening, we had a party for my bro-in-law for landing a new job. Everyone brought their kids, and with dwindling light, I was shooting at ISO 2000 and higher with no dropoff whatsoever. Today might be a double day, but with the Smugmug difficulty, #2 might come later on (one of the kid ones at amazing ISO’s).
This is an old-school panning shot. Shutter priority, 1/50s. Effect is created by panning the camera with the riders as they whiz by.
