My daughter after a long walk up and down some hills. We may have found a way to keep her quiet for a little while.

I think I’ve finally decided which lens will live on the D850 camera … The D850 camera and the 70-200 2.8 lens feel as if they were made for each other.

I’ve been asked why I bought a DSLR when I already have two mirrorless cameras (in fact my last two camera purchases were DSLRs). I love my two Z6 mirrorless cameras and will turn to them when I need to shoot in a hurry. The file sizes produced by them are fine for everything I do and the colours straight out of them are beautiful. But for me, my D810 and D850 will hold my favourite portrait lenses, the Nikon 105 1.4 and the 70-200 2.8 respectively.

I can use both when under pressure or a time crunch just fine, but where they really perform and shine is when I can take a few seconds and really line up a portrait. Plus at 36 and 46 megapixels the images have a certain extra depth to them that I LOVE for portraiture. And although not represented as much within this blog, portraiture is my true photographic love. Especially one on one, just me and the subject.

In other photographic news, the new iPhone 13 was officially released today. I have to wait until the 30th to order my upgrade to the new Pro Max model. I am very much looking forward to the increased lens sizes and improvements in computational photography and all the reviews I’ve seen have shown some amazing capabilities. I definitely take more photos than make phone calls so the camera is the most important part of the phone for me. The accessories have been ordered and now it’s just time to wait for the contract to tick over on the 30th.

You can bet you’ll see the new phone in action on this blog.

That’s it for now. Talk to you soon. Stay safe.
