Camera Talk / Re: D5 - long term experience?
« Last post by Jack Dahlgren on January 22, 2021, 00:05:01 »
I've read criticism of the linked site and it's findings. I believe the chart linked is good enough for a practical evaluation of various cameras. I believe dynamic range is only one criteria to consider.

From practical experience that I found the Nikon D2H deficient in dynamic range under many situations. In particular I found it near impossible to record shadow detail in a groom's black tuxedo while holding diffused highlights in the bride's white gown. I was shooting a cousin's wedding by request in a photojournalist style in deference to the official photographers. I was shooting with on camera flash as mandated by light in the church and reception hall. A better photographer probably would have dealt more constructively with the challenge.

I would have preferred to have shot the wedding with a Nikon F5 using Tri-X. The family wanted color and I could not find but 2 rolls of color negative film with in miles.

I'm not a Nikon D5 owner. I made the post above to stimulate discussion believing D5's dynamic range is not deficient but rather consistent with the primary use photographers put the D5 to.

I think that since the D2H is nearly 18 years old, that most people (who could afford a D5) could decide between D2H and D5 without using that site.

As for your experience in that wedding, a minor suggestion... if the groom would have considered perhaps a baby blue tux the contrast would not have been so grave.  :)

Indeed, I find the previously referenced chart to be thin justification for choosing one camera over another.

Birna,
sorry to learn about your alien.
Hope that the neuroma is of benign character and that its removal will be returning you to normality.
All the best for sure  :)


Thanks, Sten. I do hope to keep hearing (cannot be guaranteed) and avoid most of the other nasties incurred by this neuroma.
