Vente trottoir rue Mont-Royal (street fair)

Published September 7th, 2011

Twice a year, there is a "vente trottoir" (street fair) on Rue Mont-Royal in Montreal. On labor day week-end, the street is closed to automobiles for a stretch of about 1 Km and welcomes pedestrians. I just went through for some errands and took these pictures. I was just trying to see if the Nikon D700 with the 24 mm f1.4 was a good combo for street photography. Ever since I have the Fuji X100, the D700 shutter seems so loud.

This one was shot from the hip and the autofocus did not catch the man but rather caught the belts, which turned-out to be OK

Oh, you will love the Fuji for that matter. Completely silent, you have to have faith that the picture was taken. Check my picture "Goose bumps" in the "Photos" section and you will see an example of a picture taken from the hip, really close to the subject who did not noticed anything (the sharpness of the lens/sensor combo is also great

Yeah, I shoot with the D700 as well and the shutter is so LOUD !! What I would give for a "quiet" shutter release... now all I have to do is talk my wife into letting me buy the X100 .. mmm
