  1. Keep shooting with out of fashion camera, and yes?
    Show your photos here.
    Enjoy sharing, cheers!

    (D1H+14-24mm @ ƒ/2.8 105.0 mm 1/160 100)
  2. Just started using my D300 again, mostly with a 50mm to keep the weight down. Unloading Anchovies, Monterey Municipal Wharf.

  4. Nikon D80, ISO 100, 70-300mm at 220mm, 1/400 DSC_2619.jpg
  5. Sorry for wrong EXIF in 1st post. True value is 24mm S1/8000 ISO200.

    (D1H+14-24mm @ ƒ/4 24 mm 1/6400 200)
  6. Hi Bill,
    Is ISO100 native for D80. The lowest ISO on my D1H and D2Hs is 200.

    D2Hs+17.0-55.0 mm f/2.8
    ƒ/8.0 17.0 mm 1/800 200

  7. YES...ISO 100 was the lowest value on my D80. This shot taken at Ft Worth Stockyards in July 2008. D80 is long gone and I now shoot with a Nikon D750.

  8. Out of fashion? Perhaps but old fashion? No. The DX was a newly introduced format.
  9. Maybe this is cheating a bit since it's not a Nikon sensor, but at least it's a Nikon body and Nikon lens. This was taken yesterday.

    Fuji S5 Pro, Micro-Nikkor AF 105mm f/2.8D

  10. I'll bite. Does an ir-converted D90 count? (My local lake.)

    690nm-converted D90, ISO400 (for no good reason), 1/800s, Tamron 24-70VC @24mm f/5.6. R/B channel swap.

  11. Here's one from a D200 from a couple of years ago. I'd put one up from last night's fireworks show out of the same camera but like this better. Lens was a Tamron 28-75/2.8. I think.

  12. amazing
  13. ? Blurrist did post a correction (I can see why I'd think "macro" for that shot, even though it's clearly wide). I like it, nonetheless. Though I'm not sure I'd call the 14-24 an "old school DX" lens.
  14. Due to not able to do adjustment, I’ve added the amendment in later post.
    Images come from old sensor attached old lenses would be a nice idea. I’ve some ais version and will post photos from them sooner.
    Nice weekend keypals

  15. This is breaking the rules on two fronts as it's not DX and not Nikon aside from-ALSO-being the ubiquitous N80 body. It is using the the old 105mm f/2.8 Micro, a lens that I absolutely love.

    In any case, here's the same image as above captured on the first FF sensor available in Nikon mount.


    If the weather holds tomorrow, I'm headed out to a favorite location and will take along a D1 for some real old DX fun :) . I just need to charge some batteries tonight. I may also cart my D100 along-again once I charge a battery or two. D1/D1H/D1X batteries don't last very long in or out of the camera, which is why I have a dozen or so of them :) . The EN-EL3 batts last a long time charged or uncharged, but it's a shame that I can't use EN-EL3es in the D100. I have a pile of those, and use them enough that I always have some charged ones handy.

    I normally use my 14-24mm f/2.8 pretty extensively at this site for both film and FX, and it will come out tomorrow. In the spirit of "old lenses", though, I may use the 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5-it was touted in the early days(before the ubiquitous 18-55 kit lenses) as an ideal "normal" zoom for DX even though it's an FF lens. Space may dictate using the 12-24 f/4, though. As great as the 14-24 is, it's a shame to use a lens that big and heavy as a DX lens.

    Not exactly sure what the theme for this thread should be; i.e. what is "old school" vs. "new school"? Are we restricted to images using DX lenses only?

    In any case, this is one of my favorite images from the DX era: (obviously) it is a wedding inside a Greek orthodox church with the 10.5mm DX fisheye and D2x, from 2006.

    Is that 'old school' enough?
  18. I remembered I already had some "old lens" shots to go with my IR D90 (I tried this out first because the lens is tiny and I wasn't sure when the camera would arrive, so I wanted the smallest lens to carry to work). The Tamron 24-70 is a bit modern by comparison.

    Mostly red flowers. D90 690nm IR, channel swapped red->blue->green->red, ISO200, 1/1600s, probably f/8, 50mm f/1.8 E-series.

  19. I prefer to go with Nikon sensor not over 12mpx with any Nikkor lenses. So, the youngest is D300s.
    Any idea?

    17.0-55.0 mm f/2.8

    Blurrist, since you are the OP, it is up to you to decide the theme for this thread. However, when I first saw "DX" in the subject, I was thinking about dedicated DX lenses, but of course DX can mean body sensor size or lens image circle. (It can also be 35mm film canister ISO-decoding, but I am sure that is not what we are talking about on this thread. :rolleyes:)

    The 2009 D300S or older seems to be a reasonable description of "old school." In any case, my choice of image with the D2X and 10.5mm DX lens meets all of those requirements. :)
