When Details Matter

(click photo to enlarge to see more detail)

This is a SOOC cropped image of a portion of the feathers on an Emu at our local zoo.    It gives you a glimpse of the amount of detail you can capture with the Nikon D800.    This is a pretty drastic crop.    This week, we have been renting a 50-500mm Sigma lens, and below is a picture of the D800 and the Sigma lens mounted to our tripod ....

The picture of the Emu feathers was taken hand held, as I wanted to see how the lens would be for walk-around purposes.   It's big and heavy, but I made out fairly well.  It's a good thing I've been steadily working at getting more fit physically.  I will say that you tend to get a lot of stares when you walk around with this type of gear hanging from your hip.

I've taken lots of pics but haven't had a chance to do more than give them a quick glance.   Will post more soon, for those who are interested in seeing more of what this camera will do.

Thanks so much for visiting.
