Just thought it was worth mentioning that i have just discovered something unusual? The D4 comes with a XQD memory card. This is the card that I have been using to download the images I have taken, however by accident I forgot to put the card in and thus some images I have taken went straight onto my CF card. When I took them of this, a whole load of images were on there from previous takes so it must have been set to backup.....the images on my CF are completely different from the poor quality ones I have on my XQD?? Jury is out while I investigate more but could the problem be the all new XQD card??? or reader???
Focusing problems when you zoom in really close? Well I have a problem on that score with my D4 purchased on the 16th March and since then I have shot over 1000 images trying to achieve the perfect photo, something which still evades me? I swapped over from my D3x....something which at present I totally regret doing. My D3x was perfect. This D4 is flawed and I have a D800 on preorder hoping to get back what I had before. Now you say on close inspection the images seem out of focus even on the D800??? Every image I have I have had to put through LR4 and try and enhance. Not impressed really.
HiFirst impressions of my new D4 collected today which I reluctantly gave up my superb D3x for!!! Firstly this is fast and mean superb fast. Maybe I was spoilt because I went straight from D700 to the D3x which I found slow. But this is quick and each picture is perfect which I found unusual for me. Thing is, I didn't bargain on having to upgrade my Lightroom 3 for Lightroom 4? Currently using LR3 and it wouldn't accept the RAW file so of course carried out the update which was running v3.4, now running v3.6. No use won't accept D4 camera. Downloaded trial of LR4 and it works but not happy, further expense. Second gripe, battery. There nearly identical in shape and size but Nikon made it impossible to use D3x battery in D4? So further expense for second battery. SB910 works better with D4 than D3x. Will do more when I have really tried it but apart from expense which I feel unnecessary for extras, its the Bo..ocks
Auntie Ginzy: Love to know the lens you used
Hi thanks for the question, I used a Nikon 24-70 Lens.
A bleak reminder that it will soon be cold again!
