Tauhou - シルバー・アイ


Nelson, New Zealand

Nikon D200
Ai-S Nikkor 300mm F4.5 ED-IF
Tamron SP AF 2X Teleconverter (300F)
F11, 1/30, ISO-400

I can't believe I did this with hand-held. 300mm + 2x teleconverter on DX camera = 900mm effective focal length with 1/30 of shutter speed. Not bad at all! Well, this is the most sharp one out from about 10 trial shots. Obviously better with tripod, no doubt about that.

Compare to the reflex 500mm lens, I prefer this combination to gain 500mm+. it's mainly by bokeh that rendered by the reflex. This is more natural than doughnuts rings all over (that was fun or effective in some case).

Quick snap at the bridge street corner; where this mobile cafe is usually open. There is a sushi bar at the other end. It was very nice warm Easer Monday at central Nelson.

Maple Leaf - もみじ


Nelson, New Zealand

Nikon D200
Tamron SP MF 500mm F8 Reflex (55B)
Tamron SP 2X Teleconverter (01F) (optics removed and just act as a tube)
F8, 1/60, ISO-160

Snap away with hand-held. The optics of 2x extension tube was removed and use as a macro extension tube. This is not particularly a macro shot but aimed a small Japanese maple leaf about 2+ mater away to see how DOF is looks like.
