Re: Backup camera for Africa

I could consider that option.  I'm not sure would be able to get used to that much weight though.   Something to think about- I've never actually held a D4 so I should just to see what I thought of it.  Thanks for thinking of that option.

Just had another thought....

Is this a "once in a lifetime" trip? If so, rent a D4. The D800 is not a low light specialist and once you go above 800ISO you are throwing away the benefits of the high megapixel sensor. Image quality from the D4 at 1600 and higher is head and shoulders above the D800 at the same ISO. The D800 is clearly better at ISO800 and lower though. Also with the D4, the higher burst rate could be handy with moving animals or birds in flight.
