D700 & in-camera processing
Nov 29, 2009

For anyone still on the fence about the D700, you might find this useful...

How much gear and Post-processing do you really need to get acceptable images with the D700? I decided to try an experiment and see how 'forgiving' it is. So...

I deliberately ignored my normal routine (both pre- and post- processing), shot handheld in low light, no flash, used only one lens (70-200/2.8VR -- the 'old' version), and set the quality selector at Jpeg/Fine not RAW (I.e. left most of the processing to the camera). Here are some of my results. See how you like them.

=

(...mouse already dead when given to the owl by keeper)

=
Shot from behind thick glass (ugly edge colors) but I like the 'story'

=
Cropped approx. 50%

=
Grey subjects, on grey soil, under grey skies

=
Obviously behind glass but so much ... 'soul'

=
Pushing my luck: ISO6400, Thick Glass, f/2.8, 1/10sec, 140mm, handheld

=
Hot spot on tree trunk but not ...fatal (IMO)

=
Tiny subject at close range with a shallow DOF

Shot these earlier this afternoon -- Again, most are straight out of the camera with zero to minimum processing (mostly cropping, as indicated)
