Mom here. I have finally moved up to the Big Leagues with a full frame sensor camera, the Nikon D750. All I can say is "I have SEEN THE LIGHT"! Wow. I honestly didn't realize what I was missing, but now that I know, I'm going to see what I need to do to have my backup camera also be a full frame sensor. All of my past cameras have been crop-sensors - which have worked well, but when photographing Little Black Dog, I have noticed times when the auto-focus can't quite pick out what part of the black blur should be the primary focus point. I was also getting to the point where I wanted to replace the cameras I have (they are in fine condition, but I like to turn them over while the are still in good shape...), and when I began researching the FX Nikons, I liked what I read about the D750 - great auto-focus, great in low-light, and not much bigger/heavier than the D7100.
I am still figuring out how to set up the camera (and I'm adjusting to not having the 'telephoto effect' that a crop sensor gave me - 85mm is not as much of a telephoto lens on a full sensor camera - and I have no idea how my 24-70mm lens is going to be!), but I really, really, really like it!
|The first photo I took outside in very low-light. I hadn't figured out the focus points yet, but I love how it came out.|
|85mm is much farther away with this camera! I think my 70-200mm lens is going to be on the camera a lot!|
|Fi is happy with it!|
My camera has definitely not improved Daisy's catching skills!
However, she looks quite good when she picks the ball off the ground and holds it....
Look forward to more pictures of the dynamic duo in the days, weeks, months (and more) to come!
