I have been using Nikon's D800 for the past 6 months. I bought it second hand and I'm more than happy with the pictures its producing for me. Its FPS for sports in its FX mode may be a little on the slow side, but when you switch it to the DX (x1.5) crop mode, its able to hit 5 FPS which is a much better rate. Not only that, seeing as how it has 36MP when you switch it into DX mode it goes down to 24MP which is more than enough quality for your shots. This means that you can get those fast ...

D800 - different copies, plus repairs with tight tolerances - continued pd unpredictability. Not sure what to say about this camera.  Mega frustrating.  Same lenses on different bodies do not yield same problems.  Mansurov etc. seem to have similar complaints - but this doesn't seem to get much press.  Basically not reliable through the viewfinder, which sucks because it makes nice images.  Perfect in liveview.  Video is beautiful - but somewhat limited compared to competition. Breakdown:  PD ...

WARNING:  Just dropped my D800 off to Nikon Repair. ( just out of warrantee)  Another 10 pin connector problem.  Used port only 2 times with MC30 remote, socket started to float.  Repair est. $246   Nikon refused to repair without charging, however did offer a 20% discount.  To them, it seems to be all about money, so I will get camera repaired and sell all my Nikon equipment.  If you have not used the port yet, avoid using it,  especially if your out of camera warrantee.  Been a ...

I purchased this camera about a month ago and have taken several hundred photos. I have combiled this camera with the Tamron 24-70 F:2.8 VC because I need the VC. I absolutely love this camera and lens combo. the photos are crisp with excellent color and contrast. I can easily shoot at 1600 ISO without any noise. The noise becomes aparant at 3200ISO, but barely. Together with the Tamron 24-70 VC, I have not encountered a situation that required a higher ISO that 1600 (indoor wedding, ...

I walk out of the camera shop in July 2012 with my first DSLR Nikon (D800) paired with the 200-400 VRII. After primarily using the D800 for over a year I can say that at this time for me it’s the most versatile SLR I have ever owned. I primarily photograph wildlife & landscape and using the D800 fits in nicely with the way I photograph, giving me a tool that has an equal balance of IQ throughout all the lighting conditions that I subject my camera to. (1) AF- simply the best I have ever used, a ...

Pros : - At the moment I believe this is the best DSLR ever. Simply. ALL things are great inside this beast except for minor complaints (see cons). - Killer raw files (dynamic range headroom, color, sharpness, fine details even after a strong denoising...). It is possible to recover almost ANY error. Cons : - Occasional sky banding in jpgs. Raw is often needed (I shoot raw+jpg). - Jpg clipping (expecially reds) is not rare (but shoot raw and you are invincible :-) ) - It is very bulky, a pain ...

There is little point in reviewing something until you have got to know it well. So I have held off reviewing the D800 until I felt comfortable I could give an honest, rounded opinion. I should also explain that the D800 is not the only DSLR I own - and for much of my commercial work I currently use a company D7000 converted to FS. My first DSLR experience was a D200. This was moving (down-grading) from an F5 - although I worked a lot with scanned 'wet' film I was slow to adopt digital ...
