First Clicks With the Nikon D800

with 18 comments


  Nikon D800 + Nikkor 24mm f/1.4G | 6 sec, f/8, ISO 100

Bridget and I made a brief drive out to one of our favorite spots to view the Golden Gate after work tonight. Well, she drove. I was busy unboxing the D800 I received only a couple hours earlier. I set it up the best I could in the car, and as soon as we arrived, took a few frames of the bridge during dusk. Hoo boy does this thing bring on the pixels.

More impressions to come…

  6. I am sooooo jealous! I work with the Nikon D40 and truly love this camera, but I dream of getting the D800 one day! Amazing quality on the D800.

    • There’s a big case to be made for the 5DII now since the price has dropped so significantly. I say go for that one :)

  15. [...] side note: I did not stitch full resolution, 36 megapixel frames from the D800 here, but can you imagine the final size of these images if I had? Hoo [...]
