As of 7:03am PST I will be on my way to Iceland for 10 days of shooting. I will have with me Nikon’s newest camera the D-700. I have had the camera for two weeks now and what I’m finding interesting is that I’m starting to view my D3 as my back-up camera. So 10 days in Iceland should show me what the camera is capable of. During the course of my trek I’ll be hooking up with John Paul Caponigro to shoot a lot and teach a little. I’m sure JP will have a word or two rto say about is journey in Iceland. (A link to his blog can be found on the Acme Blog Roll) I have some files I’ve shot already but have not processed I’ll be doing that on the flight(s) over to Reykjavik . Broadband internet willing I’ll try to post those files soon after land. So back to packing.
