Nikon D300S Photos and Video Samples

First published on: Sunday, 16 August 2009

This page is a collection of noteworthy photo samples taken with the Nikon D300S DSLR (digital SLR), image galleries and user pictures that I’ve come across in forums, online communities, blogs and related websites.

I’ll also link to examples of footage / movie clips / movies that were shot with the D300S.

Bear in mind that the majority of these still photos and videos have been re-sized, and may have gone through post-processing, retouching or other edits. I just thought that it would be interesting to see, at a glance, what Nikon D300S owners and users are shooting with their camera.

Gorgeous portraits by Roberto Peradotto
Roberto, aka “OldPic” shared some portraiture on DPReview, all taken with a Nikon 85mm f/1.4D AF Nikkor lens mounted on the Nikon D300S. Some of the images aren’t available anymore, unfortunately, so here are some links to D300S / Nikkor 85/1.4 portraits from Roberto’s Flickr photostream: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

The D300S was put in “… Auto ISO setting with a minimum of 1/1000 and Max ISO 3200” for this series of images.

SCHMEGGA mounted a Sigma 70-200mm lens on the D300S for this shot (although a replacement Nikon 70-200mm VR II Nikkor is already on order).

Nik Software Dfine 2.0 was used for post-processing / editing.

See more of SCHMEGGA’s photos on Flickr.

AkihabaraNews has posted a couple of full-sized test sample photos taken with the D300S plus 16-85mm VR lens. These can be found at their Flickr account.

Read their D300S review for the links to the test photos. I like the portrait of a little girl.

At the time of writing, the photographer did not create a specific gallery of D300S plus 18-200 VR II photos, so I’ve just linked to all the pictures tagged D300S. The related forum thread is here, and this is the ISO 6400 image of a bicycle that was referred to in the post.

Low-light, night photos also test the D300S’ image noise at high-ISO settings.
