Ok, so I just bought a D800, will be delivered sometime next week. I am more than excited and have discussed the buying process in a couple threads already before I had made my decision (I started this here thread in Open Forum because the question isn't just a Nikon question). I had originally asked the helpful Nikon users about the comparison between the D800, D700 and D600. I listed many things I liked, preferred, disliked, ect. At the same time I continued to research the web, much of it...

The RAW file of my D800 is about 50 MB, and the JPG is around 20 MB (I chose M size for all my JPG images). I understand the latitude of adjustment/manipulation on the raw file is afforded by the tremendous amount of raw data stored in the file. How about opening a JPG file in raw? You get the same tools. But do you have lesser amount of latitude in adjustment?

Hello all this is my first post ever here. I have some casual experience with DSLRs, I had received a gifted D5100 back in 2011 and got to know the system a little. I hit financial hardship shortly after and sold all my camera gear except my 50mm F1.8D. Im now getting back into this and have about $1500 to spend up front. I have been keeping up on my technical knowhow over the years even when I didn't own a DSLR because I always knew I would be back to it. So suffice to say, I want FF for...

On my D800, I shoot 14-bit Lossless compression raw + Jpg Fine, M file size. I use a Sanddisk Extreme Plus SD with 90 MB/s and a Extreme (CF) with 60 MB/s. On my camera, it has r13 on the viewfinder telling me that I have only 13 clicks of buffer. In real life, I got up to 18 clicks before the camera stops and the buffer is full. I don't have to wait until ALL images were written before I can click again. Is there any work around, or what can I do to increase the buffer size to allow more...

I played it cheap on the grip and purchased a Vivitar off brand. The buttons and controls work well and it seems to be solid. I don't have enough time and experience to tell how the batteries should work. If you are using a real McCoy and have been for a while, I'd appreciate your knowledge on how the two batteries should work. My questions are . .  . 1. Does it matter, and what determines, the selection of MB-D12 or D800 first? 2. Should the battery automatically switch over to the secondary...

I'm having troubles getting some definitive answers without dropping cash on printing experiments. I have a 28MP Samsung NX1 and am considering a purchase of a second, 24MP camera (Fuji / Sony). My problem is that as an avid landscape photographer, I want to print large size prints. Realistically, what sorts of sizes can I comfortably print a 24-28MP image to be framed and placed on the wall in a house (i.e. viewing from around the room, not pixel peeping)? Do I need to be stitching multiple...

Hi All, I've always been just a reader on this site, but had to make an account as I'm hoping to make a big purchase and really need your sage advice. :) I've been saving for ages for my first really "good" camera and have a number of options I am considering. What I'm hoping for is help on narrowing this list down to a top one or two options. Price-wise obviously there is a huge gap here, but if it ends up that the pricier ones really are THAT much better, I will continue to save on for...

I have the Auto ISO on and the max. ISO to MAX, and the shutter speed to Auto. I normally shoot Aperture preferred. I believe, in my D3 (which didn't have the Auto shutter speed function, just the min. shutter speed). it would maximize the shutter speed before bumping the ISO up. In my D800, the shutter speed doesn't seem to go down to the max. tolerable speed before it bumps up the ISO. In the following 1st picture (shot with the 35-70mm f/2.8D), the focal length was 58mm and I set the...

Some time ago, I recall reading some gossip that Nikon were going to release some significant (maybe even paid for?) firmware updates to give some extra features to existing or slightly older cameras. EFCS for the D750 and D800 etc. Did anything come of this? was is simply one of those rumours that turned out to be nothing by hot air? or is it still something in the pipeline? (or has it actually happened and I've been asleep for the last 6 months!! often happens ;-) ) Just curious. TIA Ga.
