I have borrowed a Nikon 800 mm f5.6E for the weekend, doing a Motorcycle Race!  My thrill last night and tonight was that we had a relatively clear sky and a half moon.  Funny how the little things get me excited!

 

Two images!

D850

 

The first, at:

 

800mm

f6.3

1/1250s

ISO 800

 

Attached File  Moon-800mm(1500px)-D850.jpg   113.61KB   0 downloads

 

 

The second image, at:

 

Nikon 1.4x TC

1000mm

f7.1

1/1250s

ISO 800

 

Tripod

Self Timer

 

Attached File  Moon-1000mm(1500px)-D850.jpg   89.59KB   0 downloads

 

Amazing clarity!  Such an impress lens.... $21,000 CDN

You know, Herman, I considered selling off other things, like collections and things like that I have that have some value.  I just CANNOT justify this type of pricing.

The problem in TORONTO is no one appreciates good PHOTOGRAPHY much less willing to pay for it.  A selfie from an iPhone is now considered a standard, "professional-grade image" by most clowns.  I have barely made back gas money from attending the Race on the weekend.

 

I will post some images of the race.  You can judge as harshly as you like on the quality of the images, but believe it or not, most will no pay for their memories of participation in the Race!

 

Mind-blowing.  You have to get on a some lucrative assignment to make these purchases possible.

Cracking image, Art!!

How's the Sigma 800? Anyone ever used one??

Edited by justshootit, 10 September 2019 - 09:59 PM.

Don
==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Thanks, Don.  

 

No, never used a Sigma.  I found them too big, too heavy and pricey so my interest towards the brand has never been there.

Just a little update on this image.  I took it in to be printed, 8x8" matt finish ..... jaw-dropping.  The clarity is really something.

 

May go bigger if I can figure out where to put it.

I use Lexjet Metallic Finish for such work, it produces stunning results.

Thanks, Don, was wondering about Metalic.  It will cost me $80 to experiment with a 20"x20".  Tempted.   

 

Trying to get the OK from my "interior decorator" on where to hang it.  A waste if it ends up sitting in a corner collecting dust!  Seems I am the only MOONIE in the house !  :rolleyes:
