The Power of Nikon D700

My previous post on the test shots of Nikon D700 has attracted much attention from the Nikon devotees. There were many requests for more test shots taken with this yet to-be-released camera model, so I'm posting three more shots using another copy of the camera at the 'Nikon Digital Live 2008' in Tokyo.

I first took the shots with the manual white balance set by the Nikon staff. I find that the colour tone was set towards a warmer cast.

Japan_0537
Picture #1. Shutter speed = 1/320s, f/4, ISO400, WB = manual.

Japan_0538
Picture #2. 100% crop of Picture #1.

Japan_0539
Picture #3. Shutter speed = 1/320s, f/2.8, ISO400, WB = manual.

Japan_0540
Picture #4. 100% crop of Picture #3.


I set the white balance to 'Auto' after that to check the power of the auto white balance inherited from its big brother D3. I find that the skin tone is nicer and more natural, but the colours of the flowers are not as vivid as in the previous shots.

Japan_0541
Picture #5. Shutter speed = 1/320s, f/4, ISO400, WB = auto.

Japan_0542
Picture #6. 100% crop of Picture #5.

Sometimes too good a camera is at a disadvantage as it reveals all the flaws on the model's face. Haha!
