Lamborghini Gallardo and Murcielago (pix)

Hi all,

So I was at the Toronto Auto show with my camera when one of the Lamborghini salesman saw me and invited me to the back of the showroom for some exclusive pix. 25 minutes later, I got these....

Excellent photos! You have a good eye for that...

One observation...
On one of the shots, you listed this comment:
"Side profile. This proves the viewfinder on the D70 doesn't show 100%. When I framed the shot, the front and back were just cut off."

In fact, if your viewfinder showed the entire car, then it's providing MORE than 100% coverage, not less. Bear in mind your final images are affected by the 1.5x crop factor of the D70's sensor. Your camera has plenty of resolution; as a general rule, you should "shoot wide and crop later" to ensure you don't cut off parts of your subject.

He said the viewfinder didn't show all of it though.

Hmmm. When I first read it, I thought he implied that he was able to see more of the car in the viewfinder than in the final image...now I'm not sure what he meant.

"When I framed the shot, the front and back were just cut off."

I read that as meaning the front and back were missing from the viewfinder.

Yeah - I thought he meant that he framed it 'properly', but the extremes were missing in the image.

Hey asiliat - clear this up for us...?

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo and Murcielago (pix)

Thanks all. Taz, err, through viewfinder, picture is smaller than actual shot.

It means a lot to me that you don't think my pix suck. heh. Oh well, I enjoy the process.

My goal in life is to be able to sell at least one picture. I'll keep trying.

Be fast or be last.
