Things are not always as they seem. Find it out by clicking on each picture.
The 36MegaPixel sensor of your Nikon D800 allows you to crop small parts of your photos and still obtain very good quality images.
Exactly. Working with a 36 Mpx sensor “elongates” the power of the 200 mm. Almost all these birds are around 1/20th in size of the full picture.
However, to get crispy 100% crops a few tricks are needed:
– ISO 100 to 400 max otherwise noise will be easily visible.
– Very fast shutter speeds above 1/1250. Minimal movements will be otherwise visible. VR helps a lot
– Aperture values below 2 are not as crispy. I try always to use around f/6 if I know I will crop down to 100%
– Use only the central AF. At least with theD800. Live view might be better, but birds do not always wait for it.
do you think the lady ducks get drowned when mating??
I heard this may happen to lady frogs and lady ducks , once harmed by the male partner. I suppose lady ducks might escape the deadly embrace easier, unless the male partner peck her to death.
it’s a brutal world!
