The Bronx Zoo TWO~ Monkey

While this guy is super cute, the story behind this image is the amazing technology which makes this image possible. Shot at ISO 1100, my 70-200mm racked out to 200mm, f2.8, 1/2000 sec. There was a little noise in the image, but NIK’s define 2.0 (noise reduction app) got rid of it, without having to resort to a final Noiseware (another noise reduction software made by Imagenomic) makeover. This is where the D3 really shines. If this had been my Canon 40D, the amount of noise would have been unbearable, now shooting at 1100 means, there might still be a bit of graininess, but its manageable, and the clarity of the image, well… take a look at the monkey’s face and eyes… even at this low-web resolution, still pretty sharp… By the way, this must have been the ONLY moment I was watching this guy where he sat still, most of the time he was a running, jumping, leaping, well… monkey 🙂 Enjoy!
