I used this camera for 2 years straight shooting about 3 photo shoots a week, taking about 1000 shots each shoot. This camera never let me down. Well, only once and it was because I added an off brand battery grip and when the cameras' internal battery was out and it went to the one in the grip, the LCD went white and wouldn't come back. The camera was still barely under warranty from Nikon and they repaired it and cleaned the sensor, etc....and I was back in action. Needless to say I bought ...

Nikon D700 still is a great camera. Nikon should update this camera to a D750 with 24MP and professional pro body and top AF. A modest increase in resolution to 24MP for Raw, not 36MP. That said, the D700 still provides incredible image quality, descent dynamic range, great color, crisp images at 12 MP, (when using pro lenses like Nikon 24-70mm or 24-120, primes etc.) and excellent build quality and control features. One of Nikon's best and most popular cameras. For taking large volumes of ...

I bought my D700 back in December of 2010. I used it for 2 full years and I just checked the shutter count and it has taken 150,150 shots! So yes, I've used it heavily, mostly model shoots --some studio and some on location. This camera became a part of me and it was very hard to switch to anything else. I switched to the D4 so you probably know why I finally did switch….anyway, I never thought I'd ever need anything else and could have kept on going with it for a few more years probably. I ...

Pros : - EVERYTHING except for the cam jpg engine. Usable iso 4500-6400 (and sometimes 8000!) were a REAL revolution. Cons : - Disappointing cam jpgs : sky banding (a real problem...), clipping (red channel  and some whites). I switched from raw+jpg (first 1-2 years) to raw only... - Bulky and heavy with the 28-300 and the SB-800. Conclusion : Great... what else?

I bought this camera as a backup to my D3s, and I have not been disappointed. I like the fact is has a small, pop-up flash built in, and with the extra grip, makes a great second sports camera. I bought mine used in Sept. of 2012, with only 1,200 shutter actuations. I don't need the huge files of a D800, so the D700 is the perfect second camera for me.

Purchased this as a move to Nikon because I just hated the current Sony SLT stuff. I was looking at a camera dedicated for low light work, and that is full frame. So as a move to Nikon I was looking for Nikon Kit. I had tested a D700 a couple years ago and loved its capabilities, but with the D800 rumours waited to see. Well the D800 for all its 36MP glory just didnt seem to work suit me for low light band photography, and when I got a chance to buy a well priced second hand D700 in excellent ...

How can a camera give you Rock and Roll? Well, when i get a great shot, and I'm in the zone while working in Photoshop....I feel like I'm a rockstar! (I've been called that a few times....no lie!) I have the same feeling you'd get (I imagine.) of being one, anyway. I used the D50 then the D300 which I loved. The D300 would do just about everything anyone would need (except video). The D300 was only lacking the ability to shoot in low light with out getting grain when you cracked up the ISO. I ...

I bought this camera to replace my D300 and I have found it a superb camera to use, it has never let me down, always produces excellent pics and is simply a joy to use, far superior to any Canon I've seen and at better prices. I cant fault it and recommend it to anyone wanting a quality camera

A great camera. A stills camera. A photographers camera. No video, who cares.

No Video, thank God. Anyone wanting the best full frame without Video this is it. Should I ever want Video I will buy a Video Camera. This is a serious Photographers Camera. Problems: None. Nor do I expect any.
