Nikon D600 captures Santa

December 28, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Santa at Christmas in St Ives, Cambsblog1

Nikon D600 - 24mm lens at 1/80th sec, f4.5, ISO 3200 - from original raw file.

It's December 2nd on a cold and frosty evening in St Ives. The local children are wide eyed and hyper, their parents seem to be happy about it all as well. To be honest I was looking forward to seeing Santa tonight as well - it was a great opportunity to test out my new Nikon D600 digital SLR camera in extremely low light without the help of a flash.

Santa was about as authentic as I have ever seen before. No middle aged guy in a false beard here. The elf on the other hand was not quite as convincing, but full marks for the false jumbo size ears. The young girl, with ears a flapping, was constantly on hand to keep our Santa on two feet. Santa's little helper was much more than that.

My new camera was fantastic - and it was quite liberating to shoot in such low light and not use a flash. It does help to blend into the background when not relying on a bright burst of light going off at all times. Well done to Nikon for the latest offering for professional photographers, I would thoroughly recommend the D600 to anyone.
