Wedding shot @ Prince Hotel

Wedding shot for Irene and Raymond at Prince Hotel 20th Sept 2008.

No photos but got souvenir from there. I was using 'the studio' memory card and have to return to them at the end of the event. Will ask from them few photos for portfolio. All the photos was shot with Nikon 17-55mm f2.8 DX lens on D300 with either ISO 800, 1600 or 3200. Next day right hand was muscle pain, carrying the 2kg camera (D300, SB-800, 17-55mm f2.8, 4 pcs batt, MB-D10 Multi-Power Battery Pack, aka vertical grip and 1 pc EN-EL3e batt) for 5 hours.

I also found out that both Sandisk Ultra and trancends 1 GB CF card give different number of frame that I can shot. I have formatted both of the cards using the camera. If not mistaken with Sandisk I can take 130 shots and with Trancends I can take 170 shots. 40 frames different. Both card using the same frame resolution and same pixel quality. funnie!

This event I found out that the MB-D10 vertical grip shutter release button is super sensitive.

D300. Changing the ISO setting is very fast which is on the left dial but not easy to access to the ISO noise reduction level , few options for noise reducing and there are OFF, LOW, NORMAL and HI.

SB-800. No issue at all but the GP rechargeable battery wont last anymore like last time. Luckily got Maha Powerex as spare.

And finally the Nikon 17-55mm f2.8 DX. Cant evaluate the sharpness of the lens as I don’t have any photos to see. Non. But the only comments are very silent (SWM engine), very fast focusing and freaking heavy, 700g ++. Talk about this lens another disadvantage of this lens is a waste to use it on a D700. DX lens crop factor is x1.5 and D700 – full frame :)
