Would be a waste to not put the new tripod to waste, darou? Took some test shots with nyx now that i can finally do portrait orientated shots again. Makes a big difference when shooting with a 100mm lens with a 1.6 crop factor ^^; Unfortunately… I totally forgot to check my ISO!!! So used to having it stuck at 100 for my reviews I forgot I had shot some non-figure stuff and it was at 800 ;_;
One last thing before we get to the mini-“review”… oppai warning!
Resized you can’t notice the noise as much but still not the sharpness I aim for ;_;
Also I can’t enjoy the pics at wallpaper resolution -_- Ah well. Must remember to switch it up next time.
Chose nyx for these shots ‘cuz I discovered a spider had left it’s mark on her! ;_; washed off a couple bits of web and ended up giving her a thorough cleaning so the time was ripe for pics
Do not plan on switching her back and forth between clothes and no clothes. I’ve had her outfit on for the past… oh say 10 months or so? The results:
oshiri too ;_;
For my display purposes it doesn’t matter I guess since her outfit covers it, but still annoying. Drop of water on her shoulder from her bath, not related to damage or age :P
Kinduva a rushed set of pics and my first time out with the new tripod so framing wasn’t quiiite what I was aiming for on some shots.
out of focus oppai
If you were wondering what I was complaining about in the beginning in regards to image quality… here’s a 100% crop of nanoha with this iso 800:
(errr dang, resized to 550 due to my theme ^^;;) you can see the pixelation, especially in the shadow caused by her bangs.
100% crop from a saber pic. Much more smooth.
Final random shots.
I was actually able to manage a full body shot of nanoha with a portrait orientation! ^^ (with my 100mm ^^;)
Nice to have the full range of angle available again ^^
Hmm, I guess since this is technically my nyx review I should throw in a few more comments about her ^^;
Nyx was released… almost 2 years ago now? ^^; As far as her details and pose go, nothing jaw dropping… I’d say she’s pretty average… But I really liked her character design so that’s what really got me in the end ^^; Long hair, quite a nice outfit, oppai, what else could you ask for? :P Tentacle thing is a little weird but oh well.
Reviews posted long ago await you if you need more pics. Post necromancy engaged!
