More D70 Samples

Tue Mar 23, 2004 2:05 am

Hi All,

I'm starting to understand this camera and what it can do slowly but surely! And I love it! Big grin Also helped that I had some sunshine to work with!

Great images Andrew!
My father bought a D70 a couple of days ago, too bad he's 1000km away..
I can't wait to try it out when I'm home in April!

Phew... lucky me with not a single dust problem yet after over 20.000 exposures...

Great shots Andy. ATI has some top quality coming our way.  Smile

That is a spot of dust that got into the camera and now sits comfy on the sensor, thus creating a nice blob on every photo.

Hi Guys,

Managed to get to the airport today, but the weather was poor  Sad (didn't deter me though from trying out my new toy!)

Have a look at some of the results from

http://www.pbase.com/andyhunt/d70_samples_aviation

I'm happy with the results, considering the weather, but it takes time to get used to a new camera after you have gotten used to the old one (Fuji S1) for three years. For example, the D70 is ISO200 min. setting, the Fuji S1 ISO320, so half of my shots were soft and blurry because I was forgetting that fact and shooting tele without compensating for slower shutter speeds  Big grin

Also, I'm still learning this RAW processing thing, takes time and patience!

Let me know what you think!

Andrew,

How about a full size straight from the camera shot to give a real impression of what the camera is capable of?

What Ben says! But the air shots do look pretty good considering the conditions - colours look well saturated but "natural".

d70wilstreet1000.jpg is very eerie. There are no people or cars to be seen on the sidewalk or streets.

Ben / Colin,

Put up a full size.........RAW, JPEG or TIFF. Happy to do it, but which one. Fear is that the RAW you can't open, the TIFF you don't want a 35MB file, but JPEG doesn't really show the power, or does it??????

Andy - an uncompressed jpg will be just fine - effectively indistinguishable from a tif. Even just sections of the full image would be fine, perhaps areas of the image in shadow, some blue sky, and a section with fine lines (esp. diagonals). Shots with strong lighting (eg. tree branches against the sky) would also be interesting, as this is where purple fringing tens to reveal itself.

If you can, I'd also like to see sections of a shot of a scene at the different ISO range of the D70.

Cheers,

Hi Guys,

OK Unpcompressed jpg uploaded

http://www.pbase.com/image/27246393/original

Thoughts?

Also, for different ISO settings, I have them for landscape scenes, but not aircraft. Want to see them? Big grin

Wasnt purple fringing an aspect of the lens? In my case it was much worse when I used the 75-300.

Well if this is out of the camera (ie. you haven't played around with it except format) them I'm impressed. Colour is excellent - the shadows have a slight blue cast, true, but I would have expected more in the conditions.

The building in the background is probably more revealing than the main subject - very clean, excellent resolution and no nasties ... except I can detect a VERY faint moire pattern on side of the building (or perhaps its my monitor Smile. I can't see this being an issue, and I'm not sure other cameras would have avoided it (maybe the Sigma).

Nose of the aircraft looks a little soft - suspect that's an operator issue though  Smile

Yeah, go on, shows us some high ISO ... but its looking good so far!

Cheers,

Colin

Colin,

Not sure if I played with it. Don't think so. Perhaps with the contrast, but that would be all, let me check! Juggling between the office and home PCs Big grin ...............ISO coming!

Well could be - as a result of chromatic aberration, very much a lens thing - but this isn't necessarily purple.

There does seem to be, with some cameras, a separate sort of uniquely purple fringing which is seen in areas of extreme high contrast and is apparently caused by the sensor (don't know why).

Cheers,

Colin

OK, at home now and checked, I had changed the contrast when processing. Now here is an 'out of the camera' shot :

It looks better now  Smile I guess its just preference, but I still prefer Canons images. But it doesnt matter technically, you should be able to get equal shots out of both of the brands
