I have had my 7k for about a year now and through that time of working with it I know I am nowhere near mastering it and the problem is probably just me. However, my images just do not come out clean and crisp. I have read many threads over this subject and I am thinking the main problem is because I use studio lighting instead of flash. Could this impact my quality as much as it does? Also, I am not using a tripod for my work... I usually shoot handheld for flexibility. Are these key factors in my quality? Here is a screenshot of a comparison I made with a C-5D Mark II and my 7k. Now I know that the nikon is not on the level of the M-II BUT please let me know how I can improve... Image L: Focal length- 90 F/8 Exposure time: 1/60 Flash Image R: Focal length: 105 F/5.6 Exposure time: 1/15 Studio Please HELP. I just want tips to make my quality as close to that of the Mark 5D - improvements in general. Thank you.
