Nikon D800 D-SLR Camera | High Dynamic Range Camera
The Nikon D800 information has been released, and so far I’m excited. Now, I will not say this is a D3s replacement, no way will it be. But for my sake, I’ve considered it as being my next camera, given the fact that I am shooting with a d40x right now (by choice, d3s was sold to cover month’s worth of bills and to cover a trip to PDNPhotoPlus NYC). I’ve thoroughly used the D3s and appreciate it dearly and wouldn’t mind using that camera again. I’ve tested the D4 at ImagingUSA and have considered it as a valuable resource for me, in many regards, especially with storm chasing. I would be more than willing to test its low light capabilities in field and in studio, as well as while chasing. Anybody want to contribute to my D4 fund?
The d800 is going to be my next camera, regardless of the BS other people have posted on their blogs about newer cameras and whether or not it can improve one’s photography. I’m not going to get into that because I have my reasons for wanting to pick up the d800, as well as why I haven’t gone medium format. And those are: (and in some cases a comparison to my d40x – note i sacrificed alot of what i used to do by selling my d3s, to attend my first PhotoCon)
36mp = 7,360 x 4,912 (L) = 24.533 width in inches x 16.373 height in inches at 300 pixels/inch. In comparison the D3s was 4256×2832 and print size was 9×14(+-) inches at 300 pixels/ inch from a 12 mp camera.
Okay but why 36 mp and not medium format?
I’m cool with the fact that it has both a CF and a SD card, file size is not an issue because I will deal with it appropriately (note I didn’t fuss about it like some people do).
So what am I going to do with it? More model sessions, weddings, engagements, portraits, storm chases w/video and timelapse, large scale panoramics, 4k and up HD motion pictures, and anything else that may tickle my fancy that i’ve already been doing. I’ve done alot with many cameras in various levels in technologies, I embrace new technology and use it, but my knowledge and skills evolve when I find new or creative ways to use what’s available.
