Tacoma Glass Museum – Nikon D850 and 50mm f/1.2 AI-S

This was my first time going out and shooting with a manual focus lens on the D850. I’m used to shooting with a mirrorless camera that gives real-time exposure feedback, or modern Nikon lenses on the D850 that really make great use of the camera’s metering system.

I was getting inconsistent exposure results shooting with the 50mm f1.2 and decided to try live view to see my exposure changes in real-time. However, my changes weren’t showing up in the live view. I looked all through the menus and couldn’t find a setting that would show me the correct exposure.

I asked on this Nikon D850 Facebook Group and got the following advice from Dharun Raj: “On live view press OK button.” Brilliant!

This was exactly what I needed! Now that that was sorted out, I was able to start really enjoying this combo.

Images were edited using my new 2018 iPad Pro and VSCO. I’m making this my main editing and computing device, and there’s definitely a learning curve – stay tuned for a future blog article on how to make the most of your iPad Pro from a power user’s perspective.
