Dragonfly eyes with D7200

Postby Stany Buyle » Fri 28 Aug 2015 21:34

:idea: Exif shows D7100 because of RAW2NEF conversion

D7200 is a fantastic camera for macro. First of all the 1.5 crop factor makes my beloved 105 AF-S a 157.5mm F2.8
Secondly it has a big advantage compared to my D810 and D750 because the AF coverage is much bigger, which enables to focus directly on a much wider part in the viewfinder.
I hope Nikon will respond to the Sony 7RII who has a much bigger AF coverage than any other FF DSLR...

Weather was excellent for dragonfly hunt today: Humid, warm and sunny. I made about 400 pictures.

What causes the 6 angular reflection in the eyes? Is it the 6 blades of the aperture?

Hi Leen,
The reflexion is from the sun or flash.
The shape of the reflexion is hexagonal like each facet individually.

I like better one good shot in a day than 10 bad ones in a second...

Dragonfly in flight

Postby Stany Buyle » Thu 3 Sep 2015 20:27

Dragonflies in flight taken from above when they are hanging in the air is relative easy, but when they are hunting it's nearly impossible, and is of course what I tried...
The result is quite poor, but it was big fun! :lol:
D7200 AF did an excellent job though...

And a 100% crop
