Grim day to test Nikon D500.

Postby petefletch on Mon 06 Jun 2016, 8:58 pm

Hi guys,

Took delivery of a Nikon D500 the day they were release on sale in this country, pity they didn't arrive a day earlier as the Raptors would have been its target! Anyway, couldn't wait to test it so went up Cad West all day as the weather was not great. The cloud was present all day and the light wasn't great for a lot of the passes.
Suffice to say, I have A LOT of learning with this new beast. I felt like I'd never used a camera in my life before, it is so many miles different from my trusty old D300.

Thanks to everyone that I met up the hill on that day, was really good to see friendly old faces and spend the day chatting.

Anyway, as first tests go these are ok, but by far not my best results, I think more learning is required.
