D90 sample images

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by landon wright photography, Oct 3, 2008.

  1. Since there seems to be a lot of interest in the D90 I decided to post some sample photos here. My setup: D90 with the 18-105 3.5-5.6 G ED VR.

  2. Great, where are they? Do you have a link you can post?

  7. I Guess you get the Idea on the camera data.....
     
  8. that's pretty clean for 1600
     
  9. Pretty clean for 3200 too!
     
  10. Looks like at f8 I get a 6 inch depth of field. My focal point was on the middle of the rubiks cube.
     
  11. Nice, even in the usually vulnerable tan/beige type color (typical of many skin tones) the chroma noise isn't too bad at 3200. Luminance noise not bad at all. The D90 really should be a winner for Nikon if they market it effectively. (And I don't mean the recent Ashton Kutcher ads. Nikon can do better than that.)
     
  12. Hi Landon. Thanks for posting those photos. 'You know what surprises me? The vividness of the colors when I compared ISO 200 to ISO 1600. I toggled between the highest and lowest ISO photos. The only difference I could see in the colors was that the green on the stuffed toy was ever so slightly more vivid than the green in the ISO 1600 photo. And of course, very little noise at ISO 1600. You are so lucky to have a D90!
     
  13. I would like to see more videos from this camera because the ones posted by Nikon are not really that great.
     
  14. I'll see what I can do... The HD video files are fairly large. I was impressed with the quality of the video although the handling and focus are lacking. We ask too much of our first generation D90 to turn it into prosumer video gathering devices. It is not designed for that. For casual work it far exceeded my expectations. I would even say that a carefully planned out scene with top notch lenses and minimal subject and camera movement you would be hard pressed to not be in awe of the results.
     
  15. If you have a fast prime, dialed it to a wide-opened aperture and shoot the video, It should provide for a Hollywood feel in your video. You can upload it to Flickr.com or YouTube.com.
     
  16. I must say I am disappointed in the lack of character these photos exhibit. I would have to add substantial grain in post processing, which is very hard to do and have it look like film. Clearly Nikon has a way to go in re-creating the look and feel of film grain. Perhaps Nikon need to look to other chip manufactures for "Noisy" sensors or use sensor heaters to increase artifacts. Here is a shot from the Canon 50D at 3200 iso. Clearly more megapixels make for better images. Canon has the advantage with their "Digic" processor and the nicely visible banding.

  17. Hmmm ... I did not know that grain == character I shoot in digital because I hated grains, so are you saying that all of my published and sold images have no character?
     
  18. @John - Grain-like effects can easily reproduced by employing moderate amounts of noise reduction. The in-camera NR-algorithms are not necessarily the best choice. Furthermore, noise goes along with resolution. You have to decide at some stage in the algorithm whether a RGB value is contaminated by noise or not. Obviously, higher noise levels cause these decisions to get harder. The usual thing these algorithms do to suppress noise is to recover an approximation of the RGB value by considering what its neighbors do (this can be done at different resolution levels - multiscale). If the neighbors are also heavily contaminated, then fine image details get more and more lost. So your argument that more megapixels make better images is only true at virtual noise-free ISO levels. At ISO6400, a 5DMII with about 21MP has effectively no more resolution than a D3 which has about half of the resolution.
     
  19. Hey! I was being snarky! You people have your sarcasm filters turned up to high.
     
  20. Snarky: Pronunciation: \ˈsnär-kē\ Function: adjective Etymology: Snark="snide remark", dialect snark to annoy A witty mannerism, personality, or behavior that is a combination of sarcasm and cynicism. Usually accepted as a complimentary term. Snark is sometimes mistaken for a snotty or arrogant attitude. Any language that contains quips or comments containing sarcastic or satirical witticisms intended as blunt irony. Usually delivered in a manner that is somewhat abrupt and out of context and intended to stun and amuse.
     
  21. Thank god you were being snarky. I was sitting here deliberating a response until I saw snarky... The intrawebs is not a great medium for sarcasm.
     
  22. Next time use a C-notation such as /* SNARKY ON ....blablabla ... SNARKY OFF */ then even me is able to notice :)
     
  23. John, don't listen to them. I was chuckling as I read your post, then burst out laughing as others missed it. Giving up snark on the intertubes is like shooting in full auto mode - where's the challenge?
     
  24. LOL John. I was just wating for you to get flamed. Funny post. Yeah, the D90 looks better than I thought it would be. Supposedly as good or better image quality wise as the D300 (at least that's what I was told) and it has most of the features the D300 has for a lot less money.
