After a long period of thought I purchased a new addition to my Photography Arsenal. My New Nikon D750.
I had debated between the EM5 & upgrading to Full Frame last year. In the end I decided to go smaller and purchase the EM5 as a kit last December. My thoughts being that the EM5 is mirrorless and so a lot different to the D7000, as that is a DSLR. It took a long time to get used to it and on a few occasions I was tempted to sell it. Then something clicked and I was enjoying the fun of it.
However in the back of my mind was always the D750. Well with the go ahead from Irene I purchased it on Friday, just in time to get to Cardiff to try it out with the last 2 games in the Rugby World Cup in Cardiff. Boy was this so much easier to adapt to than the EM5. The D7000 had become part of my arm, so attaching the 85mm to the D750, straight away it felt right. I set it up the same way as the D7000 and was ready to go.
Here are a few samples of shots taken with the D750. Although I have put a shot of the New D750 with the 24-120mm Lens attached, all the following shots were taken with my trusty 85mm.
The girl looks a little concerned as she turns towards Cardiff Castle, maybe wondering where she has to go.
There are always lots of people dressed up to go to the rugby matches. So many pull weird faces when they see the camera.
I don’t know why this woman has such a frown, it wasn’t due to me honest, as I noticed her frowning before I lifted the camera. Maybe it was the thought of having to get through such a huge crowd.
This Irish supporter was making his way to the game, probably with the same thoughts as all the other supporters, that this was a game they had to get out of the way before they proceeded to the next round, but it wasn’t to be.
I really like the separation and clarity the D750 gives, and the images are so sharp. I’m really looking forward to getting out shooting again.
