D600 : about a thousand shots later

D600 : about a thousand shots later

The sensor’s been cleaned about a month ago, by Nikon themselves (it was totally clean when they sent it back to me, but it took them 3 weeks !). This is the 2649th shot of the camera since I bought it. The sensor’s cleaned by the camera each time it’s turned on and shut off.
I shot a white screen from my computer (cleaned glass).
You can see that the spots are quite at the same place, most of them come from the top left corner, middle left area, and also the same big one at the top, in the middle.
Still no informations from Nikon about this big issue on a 2300 € product.

Then, I’ve read some skeptical people, saying that this probably doesn’t affect pictures in a normal shooting. So I’d like to share one of the pictures that made me wonder about that, because until this particular day, I didn’t care about any "dustgate". I’m not the kind of worried guy about products, I just want it to work properly. Sending it every two weeks of use to Nikon for sensor cleansing, and wait three weeks for that without having my camera, it’s not exactly what I’ve signed for.

Depression And Insufficient Sleep Will Undermine Any Beauty Regimen

Depression And Insufficient Sleep Will Undermine Any Beauty Regimen

You’ve decided it’s time to bite the bullet and learn a bit more about beautification. It’s always great to put effort into your look. There are certain things you must learn first, but don’t worry, these ideas are presented in this article. Are you aware of how you should apply products? If not, read on.

Place some moisturizer in a small sample jar or even in an empty lip gloss container. This perfectly portable container may be stashed inside your purse, car, travel bag or perhaps your desk drawer at the job. Once you feel your skin layer drying out, apply moisturizer for the affected areas of your own face.

Beauty is subjective. Beauty can be obtained just about everywhere. As an example, the trees around your neighborhood could be amazingly beautiful or your beloved may constantly strike you as beautiful. Once you admire beauty, you’ll find you really feel more beautiful yourself.

You can create the illusion of bigger lips should you put just a bit of shiny white eye shadow on the cupid’s bow. Adding highlights for this element of your lip produces the illusion of fuller lips.

Should you eyes are red, no amount of eyeshadow or eyeliner can hide that, even though they give you striking eyes packed with sexiness. Often be prepared with drops to your eyes inside your purse. These can be used for instant relief should your eyes are blurry from sitting on the computer or if they are dry from being in the sun.

Baking soda is actually a cheap replacement for helping the hair be shiny again. Place a small number of baking soda inside your palm and mix it thoroughly with all the shampoo you’ll be utilising. Wash the hair. This may restore the luster in your hair.

If you are planning to go out soon after work, you can actually get yourself a fresh look by dusting some matte powder on oilier areas using a big brush. You could apply a shimmer powder to each and every cheek to advance boost your appearance.

Finally, your curiosity about this data indicates that you may have a hunger for knowledge when it comes to beauty. You may have known just a little or even a lot before looking at this piece, the good news is you hopefully know newer and more effective tricks. Great news! Don’t forget to re-see the above tips consistently therefore you don’t neglect the procedures. What is important is basically that you enjoy your very own beauty. www.marketpressrelease.com/Overnight-Cure-for-Dark-Spots-…

Culprit

Culprit

All I can say is "filthy". I had been having to clone out spots from time to time under certain conditions of shooting. Today I was hitting those conditions quite often- low apertures, bright light and white backgrounds and it just got to be too much work to clone them out. So I looked for how to spot sensor dust and found this:

Take a longer lens (maybe 100mm), smallest aperture possible (f22 if possible), and open Notepad on your computer (has a white background). Handhold the shot (several seconds likely at f22 and ISO100 (important if you can lock it to that) and make sure focus is set to nearest focus. Make sure the screen is *not* in focus- hold the camera maybe an inch away. The motion from handholding will ensure you are only getting white light in.

After you take the shot, import it into Photoshop and automatically process the levels.

This was the result for me. "Wow" is all I can say. Besides "filthy" that is. I’m gonna have to get this thing cleaned. I’ve been shooting a lot of 3D stock, and this is doubly problematic in that mode, because unless you are very careful with cloning, the clone spots themselves can reveal themselves when viewed in 3D.

I do not see this level of dirt in my images most of the time, but in those certain condition I was seeing dozens of the worst offenders. But that is "dozens" and this is hundreds and hundreds. I had not clue it was *this* bad. Wow.

Truck, dust, and windmills in the sun

Truck, dust, and windmills in the sun

I heard this truck coming down the road and immediately turn my camera so I could catch the truck and the dust on the road. Had to do some adjusting to the F stop so was only able to get off two shots. This was the better one. Not much traffic on these narrow gravel roads, but coming up here we almost met a bigger truck head on that was traveling at a ridiculous speed for the condition of the road. I pulled over and waited for him to pass. Guess he was anxious to get home, or somewhere.

These are huge compared to the ones in central CA — at Altamont Pass.

From a news article written in July 2001 www.bluefish.org/outjuice.htm

"The blades are mounted on a housing unit the size of a minivan and sit atop a massive tower about 165 feet high. Wind propels the blades, which turn a shaft that drives a generator. The electricity goes to an underground distribution line, where it is carried to the main substation.

The blades need a minimum wind of 7 mph to turn and start generating electricity at 9 mph. A computer shuts down the turbine if the wind reaches 56 mph."

"Each windmill has a footprint of about 40 square feet, which means much of the land remains useful for agriculture and grazing. ‘The cows can go right up and lean against them,’ Brown said."
