Opening for Tegan and Sara, DIANA was a great warm up in this shoot where I used the Nikon D600 exclusively. How did the D600 perform? Just check the full set for the answer.

Photographer’s Notes:

Cameras Used:

Lenses Used:

I decided to give the Nikon D600 a little workout with DIANA. I figured that, at the very least, photographing the openers for Tegan and Sara with this new camera would be a safe test. Overall, I came away extremely impressed  with the D600 after this shoot.

Processing the files, I found the 24mp full-frame sensor of the Nikon D600 more than up to the task of a live shoot. High ISO performance—here mostly ISO 3200—was extremely good. AF performance was overall great, though the small spread of the AF points in the viewfinder meant that I mostly just relied on the center AF point.

Don’t worry, full review of the Nikon D600 is coming this week!

My Camera DSLR and Lenses for Concert Photography

D800_24_70_front-squareNikon D800:
I use two of the Nikon D800 for the majority of my work. High resolution, excellent high ISO in a robust but still compact body.
nikon-24-70mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 24-70mm f/2.8:
For most gigs, the 24-70mm is my go-to lens. Exceptional image quality at wide apertures and super-functional range.
Nikon-70-200-squareNikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR:
A perfect pair to the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, I can basically shoot any job with the midrange and this lens. Superb image quality.
nikon-14-24mm-f28-lens-squareNikon 14-24mm f/2.8:
Ultra-wide perspective, ridiculously sharp even wide open at f/2.8. I love using this lens up-close and personal, where it excels.

    First I want to say how greatly I enjoy your website and your photography work!!! About Nikon, yes they did improve a lot in the ISO department. I’m a Canon user but lately I had so many thoughts of changing my system on base of the new Nikon’s performance.
