Further Confusion 2016

San Jose CA

I'm secretly writing this days before Further Confusion 2017. Shh~!

Looking back at this album from a technical perspective, I'm hyper enjoying the colour rendition. A particular pastel tone across the event. Scary thinking this is the last major event with the Nikon D3s before it's succeeded and the learning starts again.

Thanks for everyones support! The reception of the Further Confusion 2016 photo stream is inspiring.

And, onward to 2017's event just days away!

Further thoughts on the Nikon D5.

Nikon has peaked the interests of quite the may photographers with the D5. A call to arms with new generation focus processor, and a mind boggling 3.3 million ISO peering through all darkness.

I have several views inside and out the new Nikon flagship along the CES 2016 gallery.

Below is my reply to a Flickr comment.

Can't speak for contrast focus. Video isn't my arena. The bit of play with phase focus was brilliant. Miles ahead of the D3s. Flawlessly snapping into any dark corner of Nikon's booth I set it to.

I can't say I'm not a little disappointed the focus sensor doesn't cover a full frame, only covering a barely perceptible larger area, but seeing that focus overlay packed with points is stunning. Along with new options with lock on and tracking, I'm confident and excited to exercise Nikon's first completely new flagship sensor since the D3.

Nikon hasn't put much utility into the touchscreen. Functions you'd expect like tapping settings on the info screen won't let you change its value. That said, swiping previews is quick, and multi-touch zooming snaps into a 1:1 pixel preview. There is a faint fish bone pattern if viewing a blank screen at a sharp angle.

Although I'd be hard pressed to find any additional sharpness to the LCD, it does feel noticeably larger than the D3s. It's actually quite pleasant to to view.
