Riverside Cafe

by Camellia Staab March. 21, 2020 160 views

Sitting along the Indian River Lagoon in Vero Beach, Florida, is this little restaurant/sports bar called Riverside Cafe. It's one of those hidden gems found only by the locals.

Personally, I would call this place a true definition of Florida living.

It is located right on the water enabling visitors to dock their boats and walk right in to enjoy the wonderful food created by Chef Brandon Howard. The place also has a stage for live performance by local musicians as well as like all sports bars, T.V.'s galore to watch sports. But the best attraction is the view, especially during sunset.

I didn't catch the sunset this time around but did capture some nightscapes.

All the photos were taken hand held in manual mode with the kit lens. I played around the with both the ISO and the shutter speed just to see what would happen. Some are noisier than others and some definitely show camera shake. But all in all not too eye damaging .😁

Nice work, Sis! 
Looks like your new rig is doing a nice job for you!
Can U use regular Nikon lenses or do you need to buy an adapter for your old lenses???
Did you trade in your D750???
I'm sure the Z7 is a lot lighter to carry around......

Do you have a preference between the 750 & the Z-7, image quality wise??? 
i'm sure the Z-7 is a lot easier to carry around....+1

I'd say, although I still love the D750. But Z7 really does a much better job in low light and the photos come out a lot more sharper in my opening. Two things I don't like about the Z.....the price of the memory cards (and the fact that it only has one slot) and the fact that it does like to consume a lot of battery power. I have been able to buy extra battery because they are not that expensive, but can't justify buying a second card. Presently I have a 64gb XDQ card  and can take approximately 700 photos on it, which I know sounds a lot but when traveling ( whenever we get a chance to travel again) 700 is not enough and I always start worrying that I am either going to lose the photos or I am going to shoot over previously taken photos. Otherwise, it is a little, light, gem.

Thanks, Camellia, for the detailed report! 
I guess with every rig there are advantages and shortcomings. 
Are the sensors in those two rigs (D-750 & Z-7) the same?
I'm surprised that the the Z-7 does better in low-light situations....
I guess you'll just have to get a bigger camera bag to accommodate all your gear now.....smile I
Have fun, stay safe & healthy, and keep posting your fine images!+1

The Z has a much larger sensor;46mp versus D750 's 24mp.

WOW!!!! That's a whopper!!! Pixels a'plenty!

No wonder the resolution is so good!

I guess you will need extra&big sd cards, to accommodate, that hungry sensor!
Maybe need an extra external hard drive, to boot!

Rock On, Sis!!!

Always a pleasure!!!
