I've had my D800 for over a year now.  Took a few months to get used to it (coming from an old D80).  The question I have is in Aperature Priority mode, I have to dial EC down to -2.0 to -2.7 (depending on the lense) to get correct exposure.  ISO is usually manually set to whatever I feel is necessary.  Rarely use auto ISO.  Do other D800 users have this problem of dialing down EC or have I mucked up a setting in some bank somewhere? I should note, that it really hasnt bothered me (as I've...

Hi all, In aperture priority mode, I've noticed some strange blinking behavior in the viewfinder that tends to occur in the following, low-light context (to name just one). Initial parameters: aperture priority; auto ISO off; ISO set to 100; aperture set at 3.5 (on a 24-85 VR); auto-ISO min shutter speed (which remains off, I remind) set to AUTO, but biased in the 'slower' direction If I point the camera into a dark(ish) room lit by an incandescent bulb or two, no objections - the D800 will...

Sorry, but I don't get it: Consideringg the pixel density/size the 16MP of a DX camera (X-E1 or a D7000) are nearly identical to the D800s 36MP. So, why are the D8x0s so prone to camera shake? Thanks, Martin

Hi community, this is the first time i post here, wonrderful page! I recently bought a second hand D800 and bought a new sandisk extreme class 10 SD card. I'm still testing the camera and discovering all it's feautures but i ran into a problem yesterday. I was taking photos to my dog and everything was fine, i was able to see the preview of the pictures and everything but then 5 minutes later 90% of those NEF files were somehow corrupted. I mean, i couldn't see them in the camera and i get...

Just got back from a shoot and went to transfer my photos and noticed that my D800 stored the photos in two separate folders. I had formatted the card before the shoot (in camera), and have used the card many times before. Didn't do anything differently this time around as far as setup or the way I was shooting is concerned. Any idea why this might have happened? Could the card be going bad? Anyone think it's something to worry about? Or is it possibly a setting that might have gotten...

Hi, I have been shooting video with D800, I always record my video separately with a PCM recorder. But two months ago I brought a Sony ECM-CG50 shotgun. I didn't start using it until last week, and I realized when I plugged the mic directory into the camera, it gives this horrible hiss in the footage. Then I realized I need a preamp, or a mic with preamp to get better audio. From the online reviews the Rode Videomic Pro really gives clean audio on D800,but I'll end up with two shotgun mic,...

Hi, Currently I'm checking up my options to upgrade from DX (D200) to FX. What would be your advice: A D810 (3100€) or a D800 at about 2200€? I'd still like to see a comparable DX body at about 1500€ but Nikon seems not to go this way ... Thanks, Martin

Hi guys Can someone confirm that the above unit (Multifinder for Nikon D800) will fit a D810 please. Varavon has a "Universal" unit which may fit a D810 but it has more parts than a dedicated unit. Thanks in advance

I have been reading through some of the threads about the new 5d's and I don't have much experience with the anti AA world as I have used only canons. And I haven't found much discussion about the AA filter or not to filter. For a little background; I am a working pro, with 25 years+ shooting only advertising. But my client base is broad. I have made my living shooting over the many years now from starting in college working with a busy portrait studio shooting 50 weddings a year + seniors,...
