Photo Tips From The Field: SD Cards and Lens Caps

Posted Jan. 28th, 2012 by Daniel J. Cox

Here’s the first installment of Photo Tips From The Field. This will be a regular feature here on the Corkboard/Blog where I share with our readers new ideas, photo accessories, photography tips and tricks etc. This first video was shot on my recent trip to Kenya, Africa, where a good friend of mine, Joel Kleiner, introduced me to a new product I really appreciated. It’s the  Don Zeck Lens Cap for the Nikon 200-400 Zoom and other large Nikkor Lenes. I also had  chance to use Sandisk’s new Extreme Pro SD Card that writes at 95mbs! What a difference that card made when shooting the Nikon D7000 that has a rather small 10 frame buffer when shooting in RAW mode. If your paying attention to the video, you’ll notice a technical gaff where I mention the Sandisk Extreme Pro writes at 96mbs when in reality it is 95mbs. Sorry about that, but it wasn’t enough to reshoot the whole video. Let me mow if you have an questions and feel free to pass this around to your social networks. We always love to hear from our readers.

    Hey Dan!

    I heard on the video that you are now shooting primarily with the D7000. Why did you decide to change from the D300s?

      Actually, I feel the D7000 has a bit less noise at higher ISO’s and the AF is considerably more capable. All just part of technology moving forward and though the D7000 is considered a cheaper camera in actuality it has more current, usable features such as those two I mentioned.

      Mainly due to the improved AF of the D7000.
