NCB: Could get me back to shooting film, if the quality is there. A big reason why I stopped was because the processing in the UK after Kodak dropped out was lousy.

I've been trying to sign up, but it seems that the service is available only in the US. Brexit or not, you'll have to keep waiting...

esmufotografija: There are those out there that will enjoy using this....... but not the fun police that post here.

The worst of both worlds. Help yourself.

Is that an iPhone in your pocket or are you just VERY happy to see me?

Alphaloki: "and while the flight didn't break any local regulations and was done in a remote region, it's still an incredibly reckless and stupid thing to try." What a cowardly and safe thing to say. I am happy that many, many brave innovators do not share your obvious lack of willingness to challenge the limits of their chosen fields. In your world, transatlantic flights would be completed in hot air balloons or sailing ships instead of jet aircraft. There would be no spacecraft, because flying to space is risky. Still risky. Humankind has many people brave and innovative enough to test the limits of their equipment and abilities. I am very thankful those people share the planet with me. You can watch on your iPad from a safe space I suppose...

Has he got any decent pictures? Let's see them, or else this record-breaking thing is just useless babble.

Sion H: They're generally good. Not too keen on the Benjamin Graham one as I don't think it reflects the beauty of our green and pleasant land. In fact, I actually thought it hadn't loaded properly and there was some HTML element placing a semi translucent filter over the top.

I agree too. Too minimal for me, like Andreas Gursky's "Rhein II", by the way.

I have a dream: NIKON D750
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
or
Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM Nikon

That's ridiculous.
Recommending a rather slow 18-300 or a rather fast 17-50.

Do they recommend those lenses for a full frame camera? I don't get It.

h2k: Is something wrong with my connection, or does this Throwback text really end after about 6 lines?

There is something wrong with your connection.

"Mirror and shutter vibrations require workarounds at certain shutter speeds and focal lengths". As a Nikon D800 owner all I can say is you can bet on that.

In reply to:

Galbertson: Have isolated my next camera to nikon d810 or pentax 645 Z. I have many older manual nikkor glass as well as many pentax 645/67 manual glass. Certainly 645Z better image quality and dynamic range. Know well its other pros and cons for my particular use. I strictly shoot landscape, concern for large prints. Only tripoded, f16 and above, 1/15th second and slower.

Pentax lots more money, for sure.

But my question, can older manual f lenses use resolving power of d810, or hinder it. If i have to start building bew lenses, pentax looks affordable.

My experience with old Nikkor lenses and D800 has been awful, to say the least. With the new D810... just forget it.

This is not about piracy, no way, this is about monopoly and greed. Well, you can count me out, boys.

tarnumf: So much about lenses sharpness, high ISO and bokeh - no, they don't really matter.

You can't compare Kodachrome to pixels, what you see on your monitors is only a digital interpretation of Kodachrome., not the real slide. Project these on a screen, then we can compare.

Maybe some of the lucky owners of D800 (I'm still waiting mine) can solve a little doubt I have... How long does a 14-bit uncompressed NEF take to record (and green "writing" LED to extinguish) in a 400x CF card? I fear I'll have to buy a couple of Lexar 1000x new cards... Are you having troubles with writing speeds in real life photography?

jorgeysusa: According to many of the comments, if I use D800 handheld with average Nikkor lenses (that's what I mostly have) and no VR I'll get no visible focus point. Really?
Shall I not be able to get at least same focus as I get in my D200? Are Nikon engineers so stupid? Come on, boys! I know D800 won't make a better photographer out of me the moment I buy it, but my pix won't be worse either. That's simply absurd.

That's the point. All I'm saying is that, given the same lenses and the same photographer, the big resolution of D800 sensor CANNOT be a problem, it's a bonus! If you do decent photos with D200 or D700, it's not serious to think that you'll do worse with D800.

Do I realy need a D800? Isn'it wiser to buy D700 and spend the difference in an extra lens? Well, that's another question, with different answers.

Non fotis, noi. Messi isn't a catalán either. I think I'll keep mine.

jmmgarza: I am still holding out for the new full sensor Sony. Can't wait for that camera to come to market.

Well, select ISO6400 and RAW with Sony A77. That's what I call noise.

Nuno Souto: Hmmm.... Put the D800 against the EM-5 and the Nex-7 and quite frankly, up to 1600ISO there is no major diff... Of course: higher ISOs, things change dramatically. But do I need to take all my shots at nose-bleed ISO? No way.
It's looking very much like the EM-5's all-lens compatibility and in-body stabilisation is winning the day. Ah well, roll-on the SD1 test, that might be a true eye-opener... Sorry, just realized this is dpreview and they don't do Sigma!

Nuno, you must be looking at jpeg samples. Try RAW instead and you'll find out that Sony samples are a lot noisier.
