Bald Eagles, Eagles and more Eagles - Nikon D4
7 months ago

After years of enjoyment of my D300 (DX crop), and waiting and waiting for the D400, I finally bought a D4 last year for my eagle photography. I thought I wanted the 1.5 crop of the D300 and was holding out the next generation crop body from Nikon. As we all know, it still hasn't been produced.

I have been having a great time with my D4, and I get to shoot more due to the high ISO and don't go home when the light is too low. If Nikon came out with a D400 today, I would stick with my D4.

Here are a couple of images from last month up in Alaska during the Bald Eagle migration. I've spent the last 5 Novembers up here, and can't think of anything more enjoyable to do with my time.

All images are from a D4 and 500mm f/4 combo.  (who needs the 800mm)

Here is the full eagle gallery if you are addicted to these amazing birds as I am:
