I recently compiled an extensive Bucket List for myself, I hope to be checking them off one by one and posting them on here as I go!
Fist up is Bucket List item number Ten!
Own a Full Frame Camera
A quick shout out to Ken Rockwell, I use his expertly advise for all of my photography purchases and for keeping up with the trade. I highly advise reading Ken's website HERE. I researched my next camera for over a year (closer to two years) and I landed on the Nikon D610 after reading every possible piece of information on the competing models from both Nikon and Canon.
I've been dreaming of owning a beast of a camera for ten years now. I got my last Camera (the Nikon D50) in 2005. It was more than time for an upgrade, and what an upgrade I got! My old camera still works like a charm, built like a rock. A full frame camera is a whole other breed; larger images, higher quality, better focus, more focus and better results from my existing lenses.
I am using my Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 for almost all of my photography. The other lens I use is the Sigma 105mm Macro. In addition, for all street and travel photography I'll be using the MB-D14 Battery Grip (better grip, extra shutter and double the battery life)
Below are the first photos i've taken with the new full frame camera.
