    Beginner Motorsport photography, where to start.

    Agree about Mallory. It's down the road from us, a great place to start, loads of different spots around the track to get snapping, and try different techniques etc. Many shots can be taken from an elevated position too, as well as good old low down shots due to fairly low fences.

    I have the 50mm & 85mm 1.8G. Both cracking lenses, very light, great colours and contrast. I wouldn't swap them for anything - they are the definition of bang for your buck!

    First Waterfall Pictures

    Great shots - I really like the first one especially. Pretty good for a first effort, you should be proud of those. Maybe try converting them to B&W for more impact?

    Beautiful day here....took the D750 to our country park this morning and promptly instructed my daughter (and our dog!) to run as quickly as they could directly towards the camera whilst I fired a few bursts. I tried the AF-C group focusing, as well as single point (sometimes off centre too)...

    Nikon D750

    Further to my previous post about AF in near darkness, thought I'd test the dynamic range/shadow recovery too. I decided to push the camera to the limit, and took a photo out of a back window (it won't win any awards....), exposure compensation at -5EV (yes, that's 5 stops!). Below are three...

    Nikon D750

    I received my D750 today. Just done some very brief initial testing and it's very impressive indeed - the AF capabilities in virtually complete darkness are astonishing - and the outer AF points are damn near as good as the 9 in the middle, they just 'work' - truly superb AF. :)

    Yikes, let's not start flaming the 24-120 on this thread. It's a solid lens for sure, and has its followers. Anyway, for me it might be a means to an end...

    Nikon D750

    I believe it comes in a larger box, with the lens also inside, probably in a white box of its own. I'll let you know in a couple of days :)

    Nikon D750

    Have you had one? Assuming you know it's the constant f/4 version, and not the previous variable aperture one (which was a lemon) it actually reviews very well as a good general purpose FX walkabout lens, great colours and contrast, and excellent sharpness across the focal range. It doesn't...

    Nikon D750

    Just ordered mine, with the 24-120 kit, thought it was worth it - I'll either keep the lens, or leave it in its box & sell it brand new unused. I had one a couple of years back on my D700, and liked it, but the 24-85 is a cracking little lens as well, and it's a good way of making my D750 body...

    Can someone who has bought a D750 from Panamoz tell me what I need to specify? Read something somewhere about need to ask for a UK manual and charger/lead, is there anything else?
