  1. Siberian cat is the official international name of the breed. Nice series, well done.
  2. I will pick up mine tomorrow. Unfortunately, I'm short of time (as usual) so haven't even had time to try out my new D5 properly!
  3. Testing the camera(s) at home for a period of time would be the next step in my procedure. It will only happen if I find the camera(s) interesting enough after the Nikon presentation. Otherwise I just cancel my preorder(s), without wasting more time on the gear
  4. It is hard to avoid changes in prices due yo currency oscillations Expensive or not, I will attend a presentation of the new D5 and D500 by Nikon this week (got an invitation as I preordered both cameras). This should be interesting in any case. I don't know if they will be beta-versions or the final ones though.
  5. I must say the quality is quite good with the tc 1.7 on! No wonder they wanted to buy them. Great for you, hope the money will eventually arrive. Would like to visit such a place for birding some time.
  6. Good luck! I am considering the new 500mm f/4 FL, but don't have an old lens to sell.
  7. A siamese cat with 300/2.8 @ f/2.8 (for better bokeh), 1/400, iso 100, -0.67 eV, and Nikon D810
  8. Thank you, Frank. So far the D810 AF has been struggling with action shots. My D7100 seems to handle the 70-200/2.8 better.
  9. Practicing with the D810. Looks like mastering action shots will take some time. Here is one effort though. (D810 + 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II @ 200mm, 1/1600, f/5, iso 560, -0.67 eV)
  10. It's quite easy: By having a demanding full time profession outside of photography, some of us can easily afford photo gear that we might hardly be able to purchase if we tried to earn our money on photography. On the other hand, our very limited time for photography must be used mainly on taking pictures. There simply isn't much time left for post processing. Such luxury will have to wait until retirement (if health permits).
  11. Ann: What you write may be right from your point of view, whereas others could have different ways of looking at things that will work better for them. When looking around at various kinds of software, including freeware like Gimp, you may even end up as a software developer. For some of us that could in fact prove far more rewarding than taking pictures.
  12. Right, that's why I use GIMP mainly for pics I expect to use mostly on the WEB. Of course, you can always save the original NEF/RAW file or even the CNX2 edited version of it. GIMP claims their next version (2.9), that is presently under development, will support more than 8 bits. The 3.0 version is supposed to be 16 bits or more.
  13. I dont know if anyone mentioned Iridient developer here before? Isn'that mainly for Fuji? EDIT: I now realize that Iridient applies to many brands, including Nikon.
  14. Let me also mention that there is a program that makes D810 and D750 NEF-files work in CNX2: RAW2NEF: http://bagnonm.blogs...h/label/RAW2NEF However, this only works for the previous version 2.4.6 of CNX2 (which is no more available from Nikon). Hence the program RAW2NEF will not work if you have the 2.4.7 version of CNX2 installed.
  15. Aha, it is interesting that Lr seems to work for some, but not so much for others. By the way, using exitool I am now able to change virtually all tags in my nef files, in particular: Camera Model, Creator Tool, make, model, Serial Number. However, CNX2 still fails to open my D810 NEF files. There must be other tags that will need to be changed. I suppose the processor is Expeed 4 in D810, versus Expeed 3 in D800E, but I haven't found any tags for this in the METADATA yet. I forgot to mention that I have been using Gimp 2.8 occasionally when CNX2 was not enough. I suppose PS may be more streamlined, but GIMP is not so bad when you get used to it (and its costs cannot be beaten!)
