What might be the D800 1/8000 for?


It for freezing time! If the light is strong enough for low ISO… if the subject is as thin as a f/2.8 focus plane… then the 1/8000 time option of the D800 let you capture unusual points of view. Like these upside-down single droplets out of a fountain . Click the picture to magnify.  Here below the full size picture: find the waterman!

      Sure, I have no real macro (yet). I chose the 70-200 for its f/2.8 and not the 16-35 f/4. In this way I could keep low ISO and fast shutter speed. The pictures are 100% crop.
