I've come to the D600 from a D3 ... where I naturally didn't have a plastic cover for the LCD. The D600 does come with one ... in use, how necessary is it really? We use it for studio/location portrait work, no journalist slamming around or sports shooter tossing things in bag stuff ... --Neil
In your usage of the camera, would you consider using it in a live performance setting for theatre or classical music concerts? Or is the shutter sound still too loud for these venues? I have a D3 which I cant use and three Nikon V1's which I can-but I really dont like going above 400-800 ISO. The V1 is absolutely quiet but the files require a lot of time to post process . Thanks --Jeff Smith
Hello, This is my first post, you can call me Erik! I'm a professional Fashion and Beauty Photographer and have 20 years of experience in the industry shooting with film mostly. As it is important to always be on the edge in this field I trained myself in matters of retouching a couple of years back and so far my workflow was to scan and then retouch in Photoshop. Today working with film is no longer an option and is neither economical nor time saving so I bought myself a Nikon D3 and a D800...
Currently I own an older Nikon D3 + Nikkor 80-200 f2.8D-ED and have shot two games so far. I am sitting center ice 24 rows up so approximately 150ft from the center of the ice. The arena i am shooting at has excellent lighting and able to comfortably shot at iso 800 ~ 1/1000 @ f2.8. Autofocusing speed could be slightly faster but overall i am happy with it - even though i was told that this lens had very slow focusing. I would love to be able to extend my range as 200mm is just not getting me...
Why are the Nikon D1, D2, and D3 series cameras grouped under FX sensors? Those cameras have DX sized sensors, so it's confusing. (No judgment intended). They are pro bodies, but pro bodies with DX sensors. I used to shoot with a D1X, and loved it. It was most definitely not a full-frame camera however. Then I got a D200, and loved it too. Also an FX sensor. Now I have a D600, which DOES have a full-frame sensor, and FABULOUS high ISO performance. --Regards,Duncan Cdpreview and PBase...
Spent a day at the low fly zone to try out my 80-400mm AF-S on my D7100, but I also took my 70-200 f2.8 which was mounted on a D3. I gave the D3 with 70-200mm f2.8 to my brother, who does not normally shoot with a DSLR and he came up with the first two images, which I think are crackers. I was using my D7100 with the 80-400mm and I shot images 3 and 4. I don't know why the 3rd image looks so soft, or is it just me and my dodgy handling? I did better with the 4th, but I'd also zoomed the lens...
