I had waited 16 years to see Flinders Island. & thanks to Johnno, Craig (Teds) & especially, Ric, who was very easy to get along with, we certainly learnt all about Histograms, apart from other tips & hands on help, from Craig as well as Ric.
The accomodation, food & staff @ our delightful lodgings, were also friendly & helpful.
A fantastic trip & well worth the wait, & now I am going back again!
This was my first lens with a 400d and I have folders of photos that I treasure captured with this fab combination. It is an excellent all round lens. It does fast action, it does landscape and it does portraits all to a high standard! If you can only have one lens, then this is the one you want!
Quality parts put together perfectly, easy to use, solid platform for my camera and light weight, easy to carry.
I have only just started using my new lens and it is great, it is nicely balanced and the tripod mount fitted to the lens is useful to hold when shooting handheld, on a tripod it is brilliant. I love being able to get closer to the subject with the 600mm reach. The more I used it the more I liked it and it became comfortable to use. Smooth zooming and the vibration control is very useful handheld. You can get a nice, pleasing bokeh effect. Image quality was great, I like the results I am getting. A great balance between price and performance. I am very pleased with the Tamron lens.
This is the best 50mm prime lens Nikon do and probably the best lens out there with the exception of the Sigma for image quality, but in terms of weight and compactness it can't be beaten. It's perfect for low light situations with excellent bokeh for portraits. The go to lens for everyday street photography and an ideal travel lens when weight is an issue.
Very happy with my purchase of Nikon S6800, easy to use, lightweight, large screen size, price, and clearness of photos.
After using Nikon for the past +>25 years and having owned 6 of their best in that time, including recently the D90. This surpasses all before it. High praise that is well deserved.
Very Happy with it. It's Almost Perfect, can't really fault this at all !
This is such an incredible camera that I recommend everyone should get if they are beginner or otherwise! Easy to use, great image quality and you feel like a pro! Must purchase
The Nikon D750 is an absolutely fantastic camera with exceptional performance. I have had 3 DX DSLRs in the past, last one being the D7000, and while it works well, I found critical focus was a bit hit and miss with wider apertures. Viewfinder only good for f4, had to rely on AF with mixed results or slow live view for anything wider.
I held off buying the D600 when it came out, since I AF was the same as the D7000. Was tempted to go for D810, but 36MP RAW files really slow my PC to a crawl. Main advantage is cropping, but I think D750 better for noise and 2/3 the price.
The D750 is the first camera I have used where MF at f1.4 is easy and the AF is absolutely and consistently precise. The AF doesn't disappoint even when light is low.
Low ISO noise and detail is also amazing, leaves the D7000 far behind. You really don't need VR now.
I haven't tried sports or continuous focus yet so can't comment, but a faster frame rate, bigger buffer and 4K video would of made this my dream camera. Also although it's the smallest of the Full Frame DSLRs, I'm hoping Nikon will go mirrorless in future for the larger sensors.
Tilt screen on a serious camera is a great addition, too bad it's not touch screen focus as well. Also finally got Wifi, but still GPS through expensive dongle.
The locking button on the mode dial is a simple but great design improvement. My D7000 mode dial had a nasty habit of turning when walking around.
Never had a Nikon that wasn't sturdy, so build quality is their usual high standard.
I avoided D700 no Video,
D800/D800E/D810 too bulky and expensive,
D600, D610 second rate AF,
DF no video.
Finally Nikon made the DSLR I was waiting for and while lacking a few features I would of liked, the features it has it does exceptionally well.
Also thanks to Teds for their service and competitive price. Was planning to wait 6 months before purchasing and hoping the price would drop, but didn't have to wait in the end.
Glynn explained everything in simple easy steps. I started the day a total beginner. But by the end of the day am happy to go from A+ "average" to M for "magnificent"!
I would highly recommend this course to everyone!
