645d vs d800
Apr 25, 2012

As you can see there is more detail and scale on the 645 image. I ran some large scale print test with these images (40"x60" 55') and I can see a little more detail in the printed 645 image when within 10" away ; but I don't think my customers will ever see the difference.

the d800 seems like a much more flexible tool.

I own a 645 now but am thinking about going to the d800

645d Pros
30 x 40 prints are 40mp (30 x 40 on the d800 would be only 32mp)
Good Detail

645d Cons
Slow 1 frame per sec
No Live View (my eyes are not as good as they once was)
Limited Lens (25mm cost $5000.00)

I shoot mostly landscapes and sell large prints.

looking for some input
