..it may well be...lots of action on my feed page which is xtml and a lot of dodgy Romanian sites bobbing in including pills and ..ahem...chat sites...missive sent to my provider so we'll see, anyhow I've been busy. I don't have the technology to start filtering and excluding so we'll see what Weebly has to offer.
Still learning about the D750 so, looking at the difference between time lapse in video and interval shooting in the camera menu, so as the weather cleared yesterday it give me a chance to faff about in the top field with some scudding clouds and a bit of late summer sun, well, I got stuck in.
Final faff in Photoshop CC, played around with frame rates and quality in camera so not quite there yet but it's a start.
The wooden structure in the first part of the clip is an Iron age Hut I've cobbled together, just need to find some reeds to roof it and I'll have a rather unique garden shed up on the field...
This isn't a 'hi tec, whiz banger stuff that's in there but will never use' review of the D750 body, just a few impressions from unboxing to seeing how it's muscles flex when I try my style of shooting with it.
So coming from a D700, this is smaller and lighter and can I say it, dosn't have the 'heft' or tactile quality of finish to the outer black casing and I'm not sure if it will have the same bouncability as the D700 has. They eyepiece is square with a rubber cup that already has popped off once, not screwed to the body, my prefernce is for a deep round eye rubber cup in conjuction with a magnification eyepiece as I have on the D700 and what's this, no switch on the pentaprism to block out light getting in through the eyepiece when shooting long exposures just a little piece of plastic to cover things after you slide off the rubber eyepiece...night time shooters get a bagful of eyepieces from that amazon place as you and I will drop and lose them or they'll just fly off in your camera bag. Erm , Nikon, your USB cable is far too short, plugged in to a PC the camera has to sit on the floor or perilously close to the edge of the office desk...6" would be nice...where have I heard that before? Arggggghhh, Multiple in camera shooting menu, you can have 2 or 3...why when the old skool D700 has an option to shoot 10, under engineered or is my type of shooting residing in a diminishing niche?? So long exposures and multi image shooting remain as the D700s domain.
Ermmmm why not, when you have the camera in video mode have the shutter button as the record button, not a teensy little red blob on the top casing. Camera strap, not leather backed as per D700, quite harsh on the old neck , it will be changed but then it really can shoot in the dark with an f1.8 on and the ISO cranked to silly levels without chunks of noise breaking out, feels great in the hand and is lighter, has a squishy shutter sound rather than the mechanical thwack of the D700...oh no flash cover on the pentaprism. So i'll come back and tell you how I've set up the menus and customised the bits in there for my type of shooting next. I can forgive all of the above because the low level light shooting, video and time lapse really are something else.
Windows 10....hmmmmmm...maybe just letting you know that I have wound things back to Windows 8.1 may be enough...
Well for me it was all going so well, we met acrosss a cluttered office desk, Windows 10 all sleek and modern with a nice line in chirps, bongs and trills. Me, careworn and a bit tatty around the edges but with a G.S.O.H. , and I was going to need it. Things were going smoothly, windows, quick booting and slick. Me, sweaty palms and innocent...it was going swimmingly until I opened Lightroom CC and the cracks started to appear. Bong....no photos detected...what!!!! I can see your camera but there are no images on your card....what!!! Surely this is some kind of mistake...surely....so , with a tear in my eye I set off to the old Windowss 8.1 laptop and all was fine, images seen and downloaded...hmmmm maybe this Windows 10 character was not all it was meant to be, I made my excuses left and flopped into the bosom of dear old reliable Windows 8.1...no hang on I meant to say old Windows 8.1....reliable..hmmm but at least it works with Lightroom CC
So kids, if temptation strides across and takes you by the lapels, tells you everthing will be okay and it's from Windows and has a 10 in it...just be forewarned, this may not happen to you...but it just happened to someone.
Be safe out there.
What's all this then????
