My photography websites:
http://jackmoskovita.com/
http://1-4u-computer-graphics.com/
Got some new photography related gear!

I like to have a notebook in the field to check the photos I take as what you see on the cameras LCD is not large enough to see little flaws or if it is truly sharp enough. Don't want to get all the way back home from like say Mt Rainier, to go "
Whoops!
" Also I will use the Notebook or Tab 3 to show clients my work / website / slideshow etc. I use the S3 for like if I'm in an elevator or doctors office to show clients. I got a nice gig doing that with my heart doctor last year. Was showing the nurse some pics on my phone, she told doctor, he looked and then asked if I did any tutoring.  Cheesy

This is what I got:
Samsung Ultrabook 13" Series 5 NP540U3C-A03UB Touch-Screen Laptop,
Core i5-3317U, DDR3 8GB Memory, 500GB HDD + 24GB ExpressCache


Perfect for photography! It gets between 5-6.5 hours a battery, very light and compact @ 3.73 lbs., Loaded with Adobe CS6 Masters Collection and other photography programs.

This is what I use the Samsung Ultra notebook, Tab3 & S3  for:

Hey Scott... I know you love your D300 and been waiting for the D400 to come out... well, nine years later they finally got the D300 replacement, the D500 and what a camera it is, the little brother to the D5. It's a wildlife/Sporting dream camera that shoots 10fpm and 4K video. I couldn't resist! I sold my D3 and got one with a Nikkor 200-500mm VR to go with it. Now I'm gonna be broke awhile.  Cheesy

I'm alive!


WOW! Looking at B&H and that set isn't cheap! LOL!
I really like the specs on the D500! Probably more camera than I could ever use!
I still run my D300 very happily! In fact, we took Destiny to Buchart Gardens in BC this last year. Oh man, talk about feeling stupid! My AF wasn't working. I was getting pretty frustrated as the lens was set properly and I know I did not change anything in the menu related to AF!

About half way through the garden my lights came on! LOL! there is a hard switch on the camera body I had inadvertently flipped! DOH! Sheesh, time flies and I forget the very basics sometimes!

We had fun and our Corgi is always very popular in Canada!
I told Diane I was going to take pictures of all the people that ask to pet our dog!
Bad timing. A very nice looking couple of ladies walked and asked . . . .Can we pet your Corgi! LOL!

Well Scott, being you've had your D300 for so many years, maybe it justifies splurging for a D500 that will last you just as many years... I'm really liking this camera now that I've had it over a week now. The way tech is advancing lately there is a big difference between the two. This thing is fast and not just fpm but in focusing and everything else.

Yeah, I was looking at the detailed specs. Very nice but the D300 will suffice for now!
Speed will be what eventually entices me to buy!

Hey Alan, a year ago Christmas, our daughter received a Polaroid Camera from her big brother. She knew it was a camera but had no idea what it was!

She was so amazed when he loaded it for her and took a picture! She had NO IDEA! She loves it!

Guess some of us are getting old! LOL!

When she was younger she once asked how to play the big CD's in the garage! I was like what are you talking about. Well, they were records. 

Heh heh!

That will blow their mind. Yup I still have my first laptop and desktop from 1985, or was that 1984?

Well, I've been waiting for a sunny day around here to try out my new outfit with ducks etc at the local lake but it didn't happen. So I shot some pics of birds in my backyard, trying for BIF with the BIF settings ISO’s @ 1250, shutters @ 1/1250 aperture @ f/5.6 or so. Since the little birds were too fast and in the shade no less I didn't get any BIF. Next time I will do some test shots with lower ISO settings and lower shutter speeds on those birds. As it is, the shots came out really good, very little grain.

...

...

...

This is one reason I got the D500... I could't get this type of shot before with that harsh backlighting behind it AND the thorn branch in front. and those Chickadees move quickly never stay in one place for more than a second. I had to virtually point at it and fire away. At 10fps, only got two... normally this type of pic gets washed out.

Nice shots Jack,

the first Chickadee shows the focus capabilities! I assume you were on a single point focus? Nice!

The second Chickadee shot, to me, looks very natural too. I really like those!
The coloring on the first two are wonderful but look slightly saturated.
The third,  hummingbird shot looks about perfect! LOL!

Hey, what do I know! LOL!
Awesome camera though!

Nice pick and nice pics!

I'm loving the low light capabilities of this D500!

We had a rare snow storm in Tacoma/Seattle area, thanks to Canada. Two pics attached are from my weekend job at Gig Harbor of placing & picking up Home Builder homes. Usually easy, good money, but not on this night. These two pics shows the ISO ability at night, no flash, hand held while driving too in first pic! First at around 11pm and the other around midnight Pretty happy with this camera so far.

First pic was
...
ISO-2500
F/3.8
Exposure time: 0.77 sec
+0.7 step
Focal length: 22mm
Center Weighted Average
Lazy, Program mode as I was driving when I took these two pics


Second pic was
...
ISO-2500
F/3.5
Exposure time: 1/3 sec
+0.7 step
Focal length: 18mm
Center Weighted Average
Lazy, Program mode as I was driving when I took these two pics

I see deer every time and one time a monster buck. Wow! Didn't have my camera at the time and that camera wouldn't do low light like this one.
