rocklobster: Now all we need to complete the picture i.e. shake off the last mechanical hiderence (noise, limited working life) is to get rid of the focal-plane shutter. Yes , I know that the Fuji X100 has a leaf shutter in the lens which is better in a number of ways but an electronic solution should be possible shouldn't it? Some expert knowledge required here to confirm that it is technically feasible.
EDit: Sorry, that should say 1/8000th for D70 and 1/4000th for D90. I am certain that the focal plane shutters in either cameras are not that quick
I'm pretty sure that is false. I thought that shutter of over 1/1000th used an electronic mechanisms to keep costs down. For example, in the Nikom D70, you could go as high as 1/4000th (which sadly dropped down to 1/2000th for the D90 I replaced it with). Some folks have said yu get artifacts with high shutter on D70, but ai didn't ever notice them. Matt
Great photo, and lovely contrasty light, but (...there is always a but) since this is a enthusiast photography website, I suggest it would benefit from a slight rotation to make the lake horizon lie perfectly flat. Well done for capturing the shot!
