On Nikon D810: A sport photographer's impressions article (245 comments in total)
In reply to:

michael2011: "And yes, the D810 is waterproof."

I seriously doubt it. Is this Nikon's claim or just the author's opinion?

Thanks for an interesting and informative post, as well as your thoughtful responses to many of the comments and questions.

On P1030193 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

Awfully good detail and color for ISO 3200 and f/2 -- what a sweet little lens, and this sensor and JPEG engine look terrific.

Many dancers look remarkably tall, even when they aren't, because of the way they carry themselves.

If the assignment had been to create a photo doing everything possible to counteract this tendency, I would give this an A+.

1. Use a wide angle lens and shoot from above waist height to foreshorten the legs.

2. Point one leg toward the camera to make it disappear entirely.

3. Use the dancer's hand to hide her neck.

4. Have her lean forward (again, pointing toward the camera).

5. Put her head against the upper edge of the frame so it looks like she has nowhere to go and is getting crushed.
