D600 4000iso Cuban Market

This image was shot on my very first day in Cuba during my Palmbeach Photographic Workshop with the D600 inside  an old warehouse that housed the Sunday market. I shot this at 4000iso. I am still blown away that we except this as an everyday thing that Nikon cameras just do. Not just th etop of the line flagship D4 but the "pro-sumer' Advanced amateur cameras too. I took this camera with me because size and weight were issues. I could get away with 2.5 cameras. (The V1 is the .5) So I know I need high ISO and I know I want as big a file as I can get. D800 is out, 800iso is as high as I want to go, D4 can go so high on ISO that all you need do is wish that there was light. But nothing says "HEY!!! I'M A PHOTOJOURNALIST PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER!""" better than a D4. AND it is heavy. I am allowed 44 lbs. TOTAL weight. D800IR is going for sure. V1 is going for stealth capabilities. So that leaves which of the full spectrum cameras? Only one choice D600. 24mp 4000iso.

This image was captured by a Nikon D600camera. 70-300  coated VR II lens in the Nikon Electronic Image File Formant (.NEF) Shot on Lexar 64 gigabyte Smart card. ISO is 4000. file was post processed using Capture NX2 Photoshop CS6, Nik Color Efex 4.0.

Final file is stored and scaled using Genuine Fractals.
