You all D800 days ARE coming. (D800E to be exact) but there are always arguments from and about people and needing gear vs. wanting gear......better cameras = better work....blah blah blah.

Here are two shots. I was at the gardens and a very nice fellow had a D800 where I was shooting and we struck up a conversation. He was nice enough to allow me to put my card in his rig and rip off a few rounds. Below are similar results. D600 is the tighter crop, D800 is the wider shot of the whole falls.

Keep in mind this is geared toward the people who say they only post on the web or print small. Yes I know this is anything but scientific...yes I know I can print MUCH larger with the D800 shot. But in the DX vs. FX world.....and considering these two cameras are about 6.5 years of technology apart (huge in dog years) the end result can easily show that both cameras are very capable and that you dont need the newest and most amazing wizbang camera to produce compelling results.

D300 shot...( purposfully desaturated the reds a bit)

D800 Shot

Even if you print so small as to hide it. I also see that you could get the entire fall into the D800 frame in landscape. Then, if you want the D300 framing, snip snip.

Oh please...I got a shot of the entire falls in my D300 as well. This is just the one I processed. This is not about crop...its about quality...any lens can be bought for either system to get the desired results.


Then post your newbie-ass BS on the crop forum where folks need the validation even if it is false. What do you [possible hope to gain from such a ridiculous comparison?

LOL...far from being a newbie...been on here as long as you my friend and opposite of you I DO sell my work and have a very valid point I am making. If you have nothing nice to say....move along.

Your response only reflects poorly on yourself.


You could be a 30 year veteran photographer for all I know but you come across like stone-cold newbie with regards to digital imaging in this thread. Maybe you meant something else by the term "compelling". Okay educate me.

I tried to be nice in my initial post but my efforts angered you. I honestly thought you were confused. I guess you are a regular here considering all of the sycophants who came to your rescue, but I would say that if you are so thin-skinned, maybe you should move along. I mean, you knew you were going to get slapped, look at your subject line for God's sake.
