  • Worth the wait

  • September 01, 2012
  • By: Stephen

Not since my F3HP days shooting Kodachrome 25 Pro and cibachrome prints have I seen anything come close to this resolution and colour saturation in a FX (35mm) format. Unquestionably what I have been waiting for. 7 test shots with Nikon 50mm f/1.4 G lens, RAW uncompressed 73 MB files; can?t wait for a chance to push this camera harder. It will be some time before the competition can catch this one.

  • About time Nikon!

  • April 06, 2014
  • By: William

The D800 is the ideal wedding photography camera. Beyond the thousands of features it has, was it does well in raw(NEF)is remarkable. You can have shots that are between 3-6 stops below exposure and with a few clicks of the button it's look just as good as it would have had you taken the picture with the correct exposure. The only thing I don't like about this camera is that it only has Large Raw, I really like Canon's concept to small, medium, and large raw features. Hopefully Nikon will come to their senses as most people don't need large raw (36.3MP) for all commercial stuff. I've had mine now for 2 years, and have about 165,000 accusations on it and it's still going strong.

  • Beyond My Wildest Expectations

  • July 29, 2013
  • By: NIN

Since I am moving up from a D70, the difference in performance between that camera and the D800 is like night and day. It is like going from a compact car to a high end luxury or sports car. I am amazed by the low light performance and Nikon's auto ISO is an excellent feature. Many other reviews cover the specs so I shall avoid repeating other reviews. Let's just say that it is worth the price. The high pixel count does not impair sharpness and allows for cropping in post. Dynamic range is stellar. Just be prepared for the extra storage capacity and computer hardware to deal with the larger file sizes. Speed of shooting may not address the needs of sport or high speed nature photography, but adding a power grip or shooting in DX mode may help. I have absolutely no left focus or oil problems whatsoever (despite my pre-purchase fears). The clear bright viewfinder reminds me of my F100 film camera. The size and weight is greater than a DX body, but very manageable, especially compared to the D4. The feel of the grip on the hand is very comfortable. Depth of field on an FX sensor is amazing. If you get a clean copy, you will be pleased with this camera. For all day intense shooting sessions, an extra battery and memory card (depending on the capacity) are nice to have handy. I cannot recommend this camera highly enough.

  • Awesome D800

  • February 27, 2013
  • By: Michael

Camera has been great to me thus far. The dynamic range it has is great and everything else about it just works for me. Not a sports/action camera, but great for portraits!

  • Nooooo Regrets

  • December 22, 2012
  • By: Korona

I've had the D800 for over a month and I have to say that trading up from the D90 was the best decision I made. Coupled with NIKKOR lenses, my images come out incredibly sharp and crisp and I could not be happier. For great pictures, you need the proper tools/equipment, talent and technical know-how; the D800 is an awesome tool...the rest is up to the user.

  • Fabulous ... but it's no D4.

  • January 27, 2013
  • By: Steve

Yes, this is an amazing camera, but it can't compare to the D4. Hence being half the price, but you do get what you pay for. If you don't need all the advanced features and HP of the D4 then you should be happy.
