  • Although I shoot Nikon APS-C DSLRs (D7100 and D300), perhaps this may help… Some zooms work well with a TC, but many zooms do not. Normally, the expensive pro glass zooms will work pretty well with ...
  • Merry Christmas to you too Don! And... May you have many "feathered friends" visiting your stump. ;) Sometimes we just are blessed when they land nearby and sit for a bit. Wayne Female Ruby-Throated.
  • Hi and welcome to the DPR forums. I like the scene very much - the goose, the flag and the sun. For high contrast scenes like this, it is often difficult to get the "best" exposure. Although I ...
  • Thought that you might enjoy these "long distance" birds done with a Nikon V3 (mirrorless) and a 600 f4... http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3771450 Wayne
  • After further review (I downloaded the P600 manual), it looks like a "better" implementation than I had expected. Good to know. :) Wayne
  • They do sell a separate charger and battery... http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1029647-REG/nikon_25883_mh_67p_battery_charger.html http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1029645-REG/nikon_2588 ...
  • bontemps, Thanks again for your feedback in your other thread. I appreciate your experiences. Just in case you were not aware, I believe that the Nikon ViewNX2 image viewer will show you the in-cam ...
  • I recently purchased a V2, 10-30 VR kit lens plus the FT-1 and wanted to share my experience and thoughts about this system. I also have a few questions for those that care to respond. A little ...
  • Thanks for the info Steen Bay. If I had the P600, I would definitely reduce the in-camera picture control settings that you mention above. With the RAW files there is no need to do that - only for ...
  • Hi Augustin. Thanks for your feedback. With JPEG output, by "baked in" I mean that the sharpening settings are applied to the JPEG file and cannot be removed. You can always sharpen more of course ...
  • Thank you for your prompt reply bontemps. With regard to the "smearing" I was referring to the grey feathers in your partial Blue Jay image above. It just seems that there are areas of flat ...
  • Thanks for you input Mcbrig. The main reasons for my RAW preference is for the highlight / shadow recovery capability and so that it doesn't have the sharpening "baked in". I checked out your ...
  • Replied in P600 vs. SX50...
    Thanks for the info Steve. I checked out some images from both of those photogs. Very nice indeed. Since the SX50 can shoot RAW and the P600 can only shoot JPEG, other than the increased FL and ...
  • Hi bontemps. Thanks for posting your P600 images. I have a couple of comments and some questions for you. Background… I shoot wildlife with 2 Nikon APS-C DSLRs (D7100 and D300). My max FL is 300mm ...
  • With regard to your question about “is the extra $1000 for the Sigma Sports over the Tamron worth it?”… imho , based on everything that I’ve read and my multiple experiences with the service depts. of

    Glenn, Beautiful images. You certainly have the right gear for capturing these birds (600mm + 1.4xTC + 1.6x APS-C sensor body with 20mp sensor). If my math is correct, that is 1344mm EFL. Glad that ...
  • Welcome to the DPR forums. I would read through the posts on this current thread... http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3769426 The Sigma 150-600 OS Sports would be my recommendation for the ...
  • Andy, Thanks for showing another good alternative to big, heavy, expensive birding gear. Your image is quite sharp considering that you were over an "American football field" away. Keep up the good ...
  • Don, Nice set of images. I love the Flicker. Been trying to get one of those for years. When you view the original and zoom in you can really see the details and beauty of this bird. Keep up the ...
  • Beautiful image Don. Lots of feather detail for sure. It's really great when birds get that close. Thanks for posting. Wayne
