    This is a out-of-production rare lens. Easily US$3k.

    Cool fella!! But pity need to MF on the D60.

    The rangefinder indicator in the viewfinder helps and is accurate. I'm used to manual and stick the 1.4 to my D60 most of the time. Plus I prefer lugging around the light body. Super lens, can turn night into day!

    As for lenses, think you should invest in those later. But indeed, those f1.4 lenses can make your night shot easier. =)
    wanted to buy.. but too expensive..

    Here, the issue of pixel density comes in.

Then if you will to take a shot and then crop the image (on computer) to the same as DX sensor size and then print out. The view angle will be above the same (as DX), about the same pixel density for the image and when printed out - also about the same... So now what? may I ask? The 1/mm rule change for D3X also?

    Magnification factor here refers to the image size on the sensor vis-a-vis the acutal - not the printed image size- that you can enlarge to cover the whole building if needed)


    PS - I am trying to present my understand on this thing - no agitation intended.
    Ok, so let's take your example. Assuming I took a pic of the ball mentioned above in FX with the D3X. If I cropped it to DX size and NOT presenting it to any media, the magnification will remain unchanged, just as you said. No disagreement here. This is the same as saying the optical image projected onto an FX sensor is exactly the same size as the optical image projected onto a DX sensor, using lens of the same focal length.

    Now if I took both the original FX image and the cropped DX image and printed both to 4R size, fully filling the 4R frame. Are you telling me that in both pics the ball size still remain unchanged? We know that the ball from the print of the cropped DX image will be bigger. Why? Precisely because it is enlarged.

    Now if the ball is magnified, so will any movement captured in it. So the answer to your question is yes, if you cropped a pic from D3X and present it onto a media of the same size, the 1/focal length rule will need to factor in the crop factor.

    If you still not convince, let's take a look at this wiki (especially the section "Secondary effects").

    And don't worry, no agitation taken.

    P/S: apology to TS for hijacking this thread for this discussion.

    Sorry...dun mean to doubt you...was just looking at the info specs. And curious.
    Yes, u prolly don't wanna know how many photos I trashed as well for that shoot.

Make it a habit to always check the shutter speed and aperture before pressing the shutter release. If the light is too dim and the shutter speed drops below acceptable level, shot with your flash. Pushing the ISO too high is not the way to go as it introduce noise, unless you're using cameras with good high ISO performance like the D3 or D700. In your case, ISO3200 is definitely pushing the limit of your D60. The reason why Nikon calls it "ISO HI" is simply because the sensitivity of the sensor is no longer linear but flattening out, and Nikon can no longer guarantee it to be 3200. I personally won't exceed ISO800 with my Fuji S5, unless I absolutely need to.

    Cheers and have fun learning/shooting.
    Agree, D60 would not be handle anything more than ISO800, IS1600 is to be used with care.

    AFAIK, ISO setting will tell you how much light your sensor will amplify. The lower the ISO the less sensitive the sensor to light and lesser distortion on the picture. Here is what I do with my D60. when taking night shots I use ISO 100-400. then controll my aperture and shutter speed depending on my ISO settings. (I'm using manual mode by the way) so if I'm using ISO 100, I make sure that my apperture is wide enough I guess f5-f8 then use a shutter speed of 1 second (really depends on the outcome). I always use tripod on night photography. A lot of trial and error actually, thats the good thing about Digital Photography.. hehehe.. you don't have to worry about the amount of films you would use.

    I took this shot using ISO 800, i forgot the aperture and shutter speed settings as this was taken about a three months ago.



    This may not be a good example though.

    Read this article.
    http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tut...era-lenses.htm

    A good example I can think of is digital PnS. The actual focal for a particular model is given as 6.4-32mm, which gives a 135-format equivalent of 28-140mm angle of view. Does it mean that you could handhold to 1/32 at the maximum zoom since the actual focal length is just 32mm? I don't think so unless you have really steady hands or you used vibration reduction.

    You could always check the EXIF for the shooting information.

    yeah.. probably because of the lights in MB that moment was mostly purple.

    Ah.. you stripped the EXIF.. Are you based in SG? Still in the office at this hour?
    It's a nicely exposed shot which brings out the mood of the lighting.

    yeah!! finally upload the photo. will try to upload more for advice.
    That is a quite cool looking picture - the noise gives it a "vintage" look.

    This whole thread is a bit of a headache to look at... don't meant to be a knob, but why the hell do people not spell things out fully, there seems ot be a trend on this forum for that . But OP - I just wanna ask you, what the hell do you expect - use the goddamn flash, and why use 1/10 or so for shutter with a flash, wtf?

    learn the fact, that no matter how powerful or expensive the camera is, you cannot make light appear when there is NO light to begin with.

    I can see that the shot was taken in very low light. so learn to use flash. If you still prefer to shoot without flash, please do consider using a D700 with higher ISO performance.

    you can see noise everywhere (which cannot be helped), you can see motion blur everywhere.
    Nise, yeah, but no motionblur.

    yeah, im based in SG and working in graveyard shift..., thank you so much, but have a bit of regret of using ISO 800, can still see some distortion on the skyline.

    many people condemn D60 for the fact that its cheap.

    singaporeans associate price with quality.

    i beg to differ. but its good you made that statement clear to all. with your works.

    there is motion blur to that picture.

    look at the lady on the left, her right shoulder back.

    and a lot more of a features have motion blur also. very obvious, if u look just a bit closer.
