D7100 superb camera gives some great results.
Mar 26, 2013

Really enjoying this camera, it's good to have a dx body again to compliment my full frame cameras, the extended reach is always useful for wildlife!

Here's a few I've capture recently even though the weather has been grim.

Please click on the photos for a larger view.

Thanks for looking.

Excellent captures Tony well done!!!  The detail is fantastic and love the color of the fox.  Brilliant job on the exposures.

I've been working on fine tuning the 600mm with TC's.  It took me two days to get the TC14eII just right with field testing but, I think I got it.  Now its time to have some fun 

How are you liking center weighted  metering?  I usually, prefer it but have been doing better with spot overall with the D7100.

I rather like the tree with the snow sticking to it. Neat effect.

Good stuff

Grainy background again!
In reply to antonoat, Mar 27, 2013

What is the deal with the mottled look to the background, particularly on the owl shots? This seems to be popping up quite regularly at relatively low ISO on several pics posted on this forum. Do you see this as normal? have you noticed anything like this in other shots at low ISO?

That has to be the sleekest, best groomed wild fox that I have ever seen.  Great job on that shot.  The detail and sharpness is pretty sweet.

Yep, the grain in backgrounds appears to be a characteristic of the D7100 images, but detail in the animals subjects is excellent, however. The question is what is the solution for smoothing the background without affecting the subject?

Great pictures. I envy you guys that live close to areas with so much varied wildlife. I live a big metropolitan city and all we have is Dove and (ugly) ducks

I'm thinking the shots were underexposed to protect the highlights on the very light bird.

Very nice work and good portent for  the D7100. Nice high key treatment of the tree. The spot of blood on left side of the innocent looking fox's snout fortuitous.

I guess I'm not  as observant or critical as I really don't notice the grainy background on these shots but can see it at higher ISOs.  If it really bothered me I would do selective noise reduction on the background with topaz denoise or noise ninja with layer mask.

Nice shots BTW!

These are crops and some at 800, which would definitely show grain on either the D7000 or the D7100.  It's early days to be getting worked up about grain, gentlemen.  The right raw conversion settings are still being found by all who care.

Hi Ray,

Thanks for your kind encouraging comments.

I use center weighted metering a lot for wildlife, still early days getting to understand the metering

of this great camera fully, matrix does not respond as readily to exposure compensation as my other cameras, Nikon mention this in the instruction manual, guess it's just a characteristic of the camera.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work with this camera Ray.

Have a good day

Tony
