D700 Returned

I was very happy last Friday to collect my D700, back from the camera doctor. Looks as good as new and the sensor is clean again – I don’t suppose that will last though. It feels so different from my old D50, lovely large, bright viewfinder, heavier of course, and having the ISO flexibility so useful.

I managed to get out on Sunday with the Christchurch Photographic Society on Onawe and Okains Bay on Banks Peninsula. An interesting trip and well attended. I had never been to either of these locations. At Onawe there are interesting rock formations, lots of colours, shapes and patterns, as long as you get there when the tide is out 🙂

After Onawe we traveled to Okains Bay and spent some time at the Okains Bay Museum, including the Blacksmiths which was working.
