  2. It's been a very exciting day! I'm glad I had my trusty D3 with me. Even
    under Baltimore's harsh and poor lighting I was able to catch this biblical
    event at ISO 6400. Word on the streets is the D3 is the second coming of
    Christ. With this level or performance I believe it!

    Oh gee! A downsized web image from our resident troll to backup a
    6400ISO performance claim.... how convincing.

  4. Needn't waste your breath Mike, he's your typical Canon user, the proverbial
    fly on the outside of the window wishing he could get in. Looks like Canon
    lost its only appeal, high ISO performance. Since Canon can't do optics,
    really, what else have they left to offer the pro?

    Mike is not wasting his breath at all, as I am more than interested in
    the results that the camera produces and am willing to admit that it
    is very good with it's high ISO noise. As I have stated elsewhere in
    the news groups that it it seems to have 1/2 to perhaps 1 stop
    advantage over the canon, although perhaps at the expense of a bit of
    detail when compared to the Canon. So in real world situations both
    camps now offer very good usable cameras in this regard.

    The BIG difference here is that Mike is willing to offer samples at a
    meaningful size where an informed opinion can be made, rather than
    small web reductions that make even the noisiest of cameras look good.

    As the elaborate tap certainly doesn't make the beeer taste better,
    neither does the best equipment in the world make a dull photograpgh
    interesting.

  7. Nah .... the D70 / Sigma is still tops. This took me a couple of
    minutes to set up, including the two trips to the fridge & downing the
    first glass.

  8. How true! But the journey is so much fun and doesn't get any better! Good
    beer and Nikon, what more could one ask for?

  9. Cool! That's funny and a great one! I got one that will dwarf that. Out
    of respect to Mark and the boys I'll reshoot it later with the D3 and post
    it, time permitting of course. Oh, before I forget, if you ever get a
    chance to taste Resurrection you'll never touch another Heineken, it's that
    good.

    Don't be so stupid. Christ has already returned to live among us, and
    he still walks on water.

    I for one am glad Nikon has finally given up and produced a full frame
    camera, Canon has had no real competition for far too long. It does
    look like the D3 is going to be a very good low noise camera. For me
    I will wait and see what follows the 5D.

    Enjoy your new toy, who knows in 18 months you might be back to Canon.

    You're a hypocrite Russell. You have monster bandwidth available (if we are
    to believe your story) and you have it because it's a part of your business.
    You can well post images of any size with no additional inconvenience or
    expense. Not so with those you use for entertainment.

    Rita plays around on the Internet without to need for such expense yet, you
    give him a pasting for exceeding his bandwidth one day and the next for not
    posting larger images. There's just no pleasing some people.

  15. Was in a bit of a rush as I didn't want to lose the head on the beer
    before drinking it. Also have to look at a new tripod one of these days,
    mine is an old aluminium thing from 1976 and is still pretty heavy
    compared to the ones I've been salivating over in the shops.

    WTF are you on about you loon?? If I post an image for IQ purposes I
    will always post 100% crop as well as a downsized full view.

    As for my bandwidth... no I don't have "monster" bandwidth available,
    because POTD is a mega data muncha... and if I go over my servers
    allowance I pay extra bucks and that I would rather not do.

    Rita on the other hand, could post 100% crops to back up the
    statements that constantly get made.

    Why not get one of those 12mm lenses so you can take a pic of your ass
    without resorting to stitching?
