Profoto! It took me awhile to finally accept the fact that I needed better strobes. Like many photographers, we grow in sort of a predictable fashion. We buy more and more cameras and tend to forget that the essence of photography is LIGHT! Yet, we buy cheap speed lights and wonder how someone […]

So the question is (to me), can a Nikon D750 replace a Nikon D4? Yes!
It is safe to say that the D750 is up to the task of wedding photography. The lighter body is welcomed and the deeper grip is one of the best I have experienced. But, what really floored me was the autofocus speed. Oh my! You really have to experience it. It focuses down to -3 EV. So, it basically sees in the dark. It is really remarkable. It focuses at the limits of what humans can see when the lights go out. It would grab focus in the middle of a dark dance floor and find contrast in the absolute worse lighting conditions. I don’t think I missed one shot all night.
The High ISO is crazy great. The AF speed is insane. The tilty LCD screen comes in handy when you want to grab a high shot looking down on the dance floor. It is a great all-around tool that will (and has) replace many flagship bodies in the bags of a lot of wedding photographers. I could be very happy with 2 D750 bodies.
I think Nikon really hit a homer with this camera. It is a great camera for both a fast-paced wedding as well as your child’s softball game. It balances fine with a variety of lenses and it is comfy and light. The video is fantastic as well.

When I started seriously getting into photography I was always told by those more experienced than me that it is “all about the glass.” “Forget buying the newest camera bodies,” they would say. Did I listen? No. Not me. duh. Well, now I am saying it. Maybe those that are brand new to photography will […]

I went against my own word this week. I have been telling fellow photographers over the last year or so that I would never, ever, under any circumstances, get a Nikon D800. The file sizes are too big. I don’t need 36 megapixels. Etc. Well, I was wrong. The files are still huge. But, and […]
