I thought that you might like to see what the D700 can do under really low light conditions. Yesterday evening I began a project shooting a rugby team - it was a practice. This is not professional caliber but it is local and the team has a passion for this game.

They were practicing on a municipal field under the lights. It was actually a baseball field so it wasn't marked out for rugby and had no goal posts. I was shooting with the D700 and the Nikon 70-200 f2.8 lens. I quickly realized that I would have to pump up the ISO considerably. I routinely shoot a 1600 ISO for indoor events like concerts and am usually OK. This time I found myself at 6400 ISO. I had never gone there before. Even at that ISO and with the aperture wide open I was shooting between 1/80 and 1/60 shutter speed. Not really good enough to stop the action as I would have liked. Thankfully there regular games will be played during the day. At any rate, I did the processing in Lightroom 4 and used a touch of its really great noise reduction capabilities. So here are some results. On a couple of these I purposely kept the shutter speed low. You will know which ones. I find the capabilities of this camera amazing. Don't you?

The images in this gallery are part of a book project on which I am working. Hope to be finished before the end of the year.

You can find the gallery here: http://www.pbase.com/mnoble/cowtown_rodeo

I used two D700s along with the 70-200 f2.8, the 24-70 f2.8, and the 28-300 f3.5-5.6 Nikkor lenses. Except for the beginning of the event it is stadium lighting. So I start at ISO 400 and end up at ISO 1600.

Hope you enjoy the images.

Great shot Louann, and yes the 50mm f/1.4 is a great piece of glass especially on a D700.

Couldnt agree with you more.  The D700 and 50mm 1.4 is a killer combo.  Always in awe at the results I achieve. - here is one of my recent ones with this lens. No adjustments have been made to this pic, except for 1cm crop off right.

I recently purchased my second D700. To say that I love this camera is an understatement. I had purchased a D300S as a back up but I really was unsatisfied with it when compared to the full frame sensor of the D700. Luckily I found a buyer for the D300S and I got a good price for it. So, a quick visit to B&H filled the need.

Here is a photo I took this passed weekend with the D700 and the wonderful Nikkor 50mm f1.4 lens. A fantastic combination.

I was considering a sensor loupe.  It is very difficult to see debris on the sensor, at least I would have a better chance of knowing it was clean.  Thanks.

A Dotline sensor loupe may come in handy with their cleaning kit is about $60.00

It is not recommended to use a methanol based solutions or canned air.  Maybe time to send it to Nikon Service Center. I have used the Photographic Solutions Sensor Swab™ on my D300 have not had to clean D700 yet.

Photographic Solutions has been providing photographic cleaning solutions for quite some time and were the forerunner in developing cleaning products for digital cameras.
Advantages    Disadvantages
• Fits most sensor sizes    • Expensive compared to alternatives
• Streak free    • Manufacturer recommends that swabs be used with Eclipse® or E2™ (methanol based solutions)
• Works with other manufacturers cleaning solutions   
• Popular within the professional digital photography community

Tried it all.  Own the Giottis Rocket Blower, swabs, wipes, and fluid.  I just shot a bunch of pictures and had a repeat of something that looks like an eyelash show up in every shot where the background is a light color, or at a particular focal length?.  I carefully cleaned and got the thing out of my pictures a month ago.  I even cleaned it in a position where debris would fall out.  It is hard to see things on the sensor, maybe I missed it?
Comment by Bill Perry on March 3, 2011 at 3:20pm
My first thought is _how are you getting that much dirt in it?" Several sensor cleaning kits are available on line the 24mm swaps (for D700) with cleaning solution works very well, also get a Giottos Rocket air blower.(large) Have you tried using the built in camera sensor cleaning ?
