ok what does "a patch on yours" mean, or in reference to an earlier post about a d300 (or some such nikon) his d300 isnt a patch on our a700s
Why are all of these A700 owners so obsessed with the D300? It's only a camera, very similar to your A700.
OK, it's built a bit better, had better bracketing, 14bit processing, the same 51 point AF with 3D motion tracking as the Nikon flagship the D3, micro adjustments for your lenses, more fps, and even more fps when you have the vertical grip attached, a better flash system that supports ratios like the new A900, but apart from that - what does the D300 offer that the A700 doesn't?
I actually don't think Rob was talking about Gary's D300 at all, it's just you bunch are drooling over the D300 again.
Rob, my later photos looked very similar to yours. I think you would have got nicer long exposures if you'd stolen my 'ND 10 Stop' earlier - when there was more water and the tide went out. I couldn't believe how fast the water disappeared. Also (if you look at Gary's photostream), you'll see some of his long exposures when there clouds in a blue sky on a windy day, so you also get the motion seen in the sky.
We started chatting, I turned around and the water was gone. BYW, if you are thinking about going back - I spoke to Gary about the best timings for Kilve. He suggested that it's much better and easier when the tide is coming in, as the rocks are less slipperly and you can see where you are putting your feet.
Anyway, a top day out...
We'll have to do it again some time.
