richiebee's recent activity

  • Interestingly, photography kind of replaced playing the trumpet for me.
  • Middle finger fits it perfectly. Grip sizes differ, and I must say my D500 is the most comfortable of all, but really my D7100 and D610 have been comfortable using BBF (or FBF) for everything, ...
  • I can't imagine not using it.  In fact, I've tried to not use it on a couple of assignments and failed miserably.  It's a reflex action for me now, having used it for a couple of years. The only ...
  • D500 will be quite noisy at 3200 and beyond too (though it is a very fine grain kind of noise that's not unpleasant and might actually add some nice grit to your band images). Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 ...
  • Replied in How much...
    ...do you want to spend on a system, and will you have money periodically to upgrade, or is this a one time deal? It would also be useful to know what you like to take photographs of.
  • equals angle of reflection.  I've not always got this theory to work in my favour due to the dispersal of light sources, but people keep screaming it at me, so there has to be something in it. :)
  • I tried NX-D and it was marginally better out of the camera.  Shame the UI is so bad. I really couldn't make the switch. Since landscapes aren't my thing really, I'll stick with Lightroom. I've ...
  • Raw to Lightroom.  Never had any issues with any other camera, no reason to suspect Lightroom is adding anything. Not going DXO. Been there, tried it, not buying the t-shirt. I will admit that I'm ...
  • I agree with lots of what has already been said.  As a weekend warrior, I find it easy to find work, but I'd struggle to make a living at it if I had to. While technology is partly to blame, and ...
  • I can't help you make a choice, but I recently upgraded my D7100 to a D500 and the difference in response is mind blowing to me. I haven't done any concerts with it yet, but low light performance, ...
  • Nice captures. Would love to see what they look like without the super-aggressive noise reduction. Can't help but feel that you've obliterated all the detail to remove a bit of noise.
  • New Sandisk cards come with free software for this purpose (as do Lexar, but since you've switched to Sandisk, you should already have the software). R.
  • No question, the D750 is a better camera, just that I don't see you using the improvements for what you want to shoot. If you can't buy another lens in the next while, I would go D610 plus kit ...
  • Can you post samples and state what metering mode was used?
  • I don't do much PP. Unless its a killer shot (rare!), if I can't fix it in under a minute, I move on. Depending on the type of show, I can take anything from 500-1500 shots. To this point, I've ...
  • I would start at 1/200th for dance, and go up or down depending on the speed of movement and effect.  I aim to stop down just slightly from wide open - maybe f/3.2-3.5, but be prepared to go wide ...
  • Live streaming isn't a function of a camera. From your comment below ("phone takes crappy phone video...") it sounds like your camera does work as a camera better than your phone. Get a Terradek ...
  • I think that's more brand specific.  Leica is all about the lifestyle.  Fuji is very style oriented, and Olympus is to a somewhat lesser extent.  Sony has always been about sleak and small in all ...
  • One of my clients asks for a handful of 16:9's when I shoot their concerts.  I'm glad they only want a few because I find it hard creating them by my 3:2 camera.  I can usually come up with a ...
  • ...the D500. The shutter sound is gorgeous. The speed at which it acquires focus, the speed at which it actually takes the photo (I didn't even realize my D7100 and D610 had shutter lag til I used ...
