So, this is what I shot today while walking around with my new Nikon D810. It’s just a crappy sign at one of the local burger joints but if you right click here and select Save As… and zoom into the full res (it’s a 3.5 meg file so probably best not to do it on your phone) you can see that it’s a thing of beauty. I shot this on aperture priority at 200 ISO at f/4 with my Nikkor 50mm 1.8D lens. Just a quick shot while I was out grabbing coffee. It took me 2 years to save up for this thing. I hoarded away tons of Amazon credit and it is worth it. It’s my first full-frame DSLR and it was worth the wait. My D7100 is a damn fine camera and I’ve gotten a ton of great stuff with it but as someone who used to shoot large and medium format it’s nice to be back into the land of ridiculous fidelity. I’ll be posting a lot more photos in the future because I feel like I have a worthy camera now for all the time I’ve spent behind the lens.
Quick update on some new gear and what’s just been going on and what’s coming down the road!
Damn fine day! Got over 8hrs of sleep. mowed some lawn, got some hairs cut, spun up some servers, and even wrote some code! Also found time for a rant…
A little chit-chat today about attention to detail and a funny thing that happened to me on the way to the podcast.
Resistance Pro wrap-up, travel and car talk, the Kindle is going on a voyage, and a little bit about lenses.
Since becoming a fair weather audio nerd I’ve accumulated too much crap and need to deal with it really damn soon. The clock is ticking!
I discuss the first time I was arrested. The charge was “being under the age of 21 years, had in his possession, Miller beers.” Which is bad enough but I also discuss my new zen method I have to deal with road rage. Take a deep breath and dooosh…
A new day has dawned for Vapid. New episodes every day because I just need to. New productivity tips on how I’m doing it as well as a new 30 in 30 regime that will change your life.
