Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-s, Nikon...


Rattlesnake Point is the ultimate vantage for Lake Dunmore and most of Salisbury, Vermont. I took a panorama from here on August 1, but it was so hazy it would not stitch properly. After a month of hazy or cloudy weather, I returned to this point on September 2, but it was the day public schools opened in Vermont, so there were no swimmers and few boaters. There was also no one else on the trail, which climbs 283 m (930 feet) above the lake, and it was a wonderful morning hike.

    Notes: This is the first GigaPan I have taken with a 300mm prime lens. The 70-300mm zoom lens was not producing clear images, so I bought an old Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-s on ebay. It weighs 2.6 pounds, but the Epic 100 handles it fine with some modifications. The lens vignettes at all but the smallest aperture (as does the 70-300mm), and makes images with dull colors, so Lightroom was used to devignette those frames with sky or water, and for all frames I changed exposure ( 0.33 stop), vibrance ( 20), and saturation ( 20). The NEF images were taken at f/16, 1/60 second, ISO 200, Vivid, and focused a hair this side of infinity. Equivalent focal length is 450 mm.
