Wow...stunning shot! well done!
australopithecus: What is a Pilot Watch ?
The main reason no automatics were used for the moon missions was that there were no automatic chrono watches in the mid sixties. Manual was what was available at the time.
Automatics dont work based on gravity, they work based on centripetal forces (when you move your wrist). RUcrAZ, hate to pop your balloon but the Speedmasters that the original Apollo guys used were purchased earlier than 69 and were likely 67's. Still a very very classy watch (I've got one, but model 2000).
geoffmalter: I have an Oris divers watch. I also have Rolex and Omega, but I think for biggest bang for your buck, Oris wins.
Yep, agree. I also have other watches but the Oris is superb value for money. Cheers
very very good. Should have placed higher. Well done.
Agree the selection is small, should have been @ least 100 pics
UNREAL!. Simply stunning, not to mention that it was done with "consumer' gear. Hats off to everyone making beautiful pictures and maxing out their gear (I know I'm not!)
Good shot!. Proof you dont need top shelf gear to produce good quality images.
How many ppl are really going to fork out 3K for this? Dont know how many ppl out there have got 50 year old lenses that are desperate to use again but if your purpose is to create pictures, you'd be better served with a much cheaper and better spec'd D610. Will it sell? I have no doubt. I'm looking forward to the rationalization of the purchasing decision on the FX forums..."I got the DF because it is PURE photography...dont you get it?"I also hear Nikon is asking all buyers to grow a 4 day beard before getting anywhere near the camera.
DC Akowua: I agree....too much Hype
InTheMist: Why this Nikon guy doesn't want mirrorless:- The mount and it's defined focal length allows for a mirror. I certainly don't want to replace all my Nikon glass.- Adapters suck.- I want the instant start, low-power standby with wake-to-exposure times measured in tenths of a second.- I don't want an EVF sucking juice in the background and taking a long time to start.- I want no-compromise focus tracking.
Besides that, I don't want video, don't want the button, don't want the menu items, don't want the engineering time spent on it nor the corresponding increase in price.
mate, you need to start your own camera company...
If she is in her 40's I'd like to meet her.... ;-)
I had this EXACT set....like 30 years ago. Nostalgia trip!
GREAT shot. For me, this one was the winner....
After watching the tour of the factory and knowing about the processes and precision that they (and others too) need to abide by, I kind of wonder why a 16 element 2.8 ED etc piece of optical precision glass can cost 400$ and a pair of Gucci or Rayban sunglasses with a SINGLE piece of UV-protected plastic can cost the same?
Mr Fartleberry: I want to believe ... but the fact is no one is abandoning their Canikony lense in any class to use the Sigma. Unless they're a shill like I've seen in the Canadian photo press.
Nothing against Sigma but your past history follows you around. It's just not a simple case of throwing your shittty underwear in the wash with a sheet of Bounce and think you'll come out smelling like .... mountain meadow.
Im VERY happy with both my Sigma lenses....cant say the same thing about the Tamron though
