Waist of resources that should have been allocated to NX2 and D810 Raw support and possibly to create NX3 With Nik Plug in support.
The improvements are small but all in the right place for me. The better LCD, Better ISO, Faster Frame Rate, better Focus.. These little changes makes an awesome camera even better. I will be upgrading from the D800E to the D810..
Just one very important question, I see that they will be releasing their Stupid Nikon Capture NX-D on July 15th for free. Does this mean that there will not be Capture NX2 Support for the D810? Can anyone confirm this? If so this will be a deal breaker for me.
TeriF: Congrats for your second place, Arsen. Very beautiful shot. Teri
Thank you.. Lots of good entries ..
Congratulations,, very nice capture. The photo tells a story.
Very nice capture .. Well done..
Arsen: I just picked up mine about an hour ago.. Must say for a small camera the image quality is very good. Still no comparison to my Nikon D800E , but for a light camera has lots of features that my wife wanted in a small package. Overall very satisfied with it. I bought it with the kit lens, Ok overall, but like the compact size. The reason that I bought this camera was to use it when my D800E would be too big to take along. Its hard to sacrifice great IQ. So Far I am quite impressed, but time will tell based on various shooting conditions..
The 50mm would be for FF camera.. Its my only prime I have.. All my other lens are 2.8 zoom..
I use the D800E 95% of the time, but sometimes with my 2.8 lens and external flash, little big to take along to a small function or restaurant, it gets too much attention. I refuse to use a cell phone camera to take pictures, so the A6000 is a compromise in between. I can always use a small 50mm prime and internal flash but again sometime I want something light to carry along with me.. The camera is going to be used 95% of the time by my wife, and with Wi-Fi and NFC she can easily post pictures on social media or share via email..

Stunning Photo, colors, composition, detail.
Love the colors and Composition,, great capture..
Congratulations, well done!!
Justin,, I actually thought this was better than my capture of the owl.
The photo tells a power full story.. :)
I have to say this was a great capture.. well done..
Thanks Guys for the kind feedback..
I don't get it.. Been waiting for Nikon to Release a compact camera with crop or FF sensor like Sony with built in view finder and flash to compliment my D800E on days where I don't want to carry the big SLR.. I also wanted a camera to be released before they stop support for the Capture NX2 with Viewpoint Technology. The camera looks good on paper,, but need a bigger sensor and built in View Finder, NFC and Wi-Fi .. Common guys get with the program and listen to what your consumers want. The new sony A6000 really shines now as a second camera for me.
Thank you Barb.. appreciate your kind comments.
Nikons FAQ on Capture NX-D is clear.. This is not right.
Q: Do you plan to include U Point functions (for portional editing) later?
A: No, we do not plan to include these functions. We are looking into the possibility of being able to open and display images to which effects have been applied using U Pint functions for support purposes with future versions.
Q: For how long will support for Capture NX 2 continue?
A: We will continue to update Capture NX 2 as needed to add support for new cameras until the official version of this software is released. At this time, the official version is scheduled for release in summer this year. We will no longer update Capture NX 2 after the official version of this software is released.
The Mick: Hey Arsen,That is an outstanding photograph! Love the details and especially like the lighting on the wings. I can see why this one speaks to you. ;o)Regards,Mick
Thank Mick.. I was able to get the wings light up because I was the only photographer that day to use a flash. But the sun also highlighted the wings.. Everyone thinks flash is for indoors, but its better for outdoors..
