I have and still use both the d7000 and d7100. What is the biggest difference between those and the 800 that I will notice? Thanks in advance! Jul 8, 2014
This camera is a massive improvement over those. It is full frame, so the dynamic range (light vs shadow) will be leaps forward. Not to mention the incredible resolution of the D800. I had the d7000 and the d800 has truly been my first "real" professional camera. You will notice the difference.
Almost any Nikon lens will work on this camera. I believe the lens you're inquiring about is a DX lens, which means the sensor will crop. It will still work, but you'll get less picture. If you already own this lens, fine. If you don't, you'd be better off getting a full-frame FX lens.
What is the different between FX and DX format ? Jun 9, 2014
Anh, please don't take this the wrong way - but if you don't know the difference between FX and DX, this camera is likely WAY too much camera for you. To answer your question directly, it relates to the sensor size of the camera. An FX camera has a sensor the same size of a 35mm slide would have. A DX is roughly half this size. There are advantages and disadvantages to each - but while FX is the future, they tend to be on loaded cameras. Without know what you like to shoot, I'd nonetheless recommend a Nikon 7200 with an 18-200 VR lens to get you "into the game". Minimal investment, maximum return, and not so much that if you DO decide to migrate to FX in the future, it won't have been financially a hit.
Is the D-800 a good camera for weddings (formal picts)? Retired film photographer (shot approx. 1500 weddings), recently purchased d300 and d300s (for ceremony and reception) with 17-55mm f2.8 and 18-200mm, and 3 Metz 76 mz5 strobes, considering... Jun 6, 2014
I used my D800 to supplement a friend's wedding shot by others. I think they were using D300s, and was surprised they were lower end Nikons for something like a wedding. I love the amount of detail I get--I bought the 24-120 F4 due to cost considerations and an extensive test done by Photography Life. The lens does have slight vignetting which was aware of from the review but I don't mind. I don't recall any focusing issues in the dark reception but the file size eats chip space. You can go to DX for a smaller file size, but why would you do that with a full frame sensor. I bought the camera mainly for better detail for product work for offset printing. The quality in my opinion is equal to 2 1/4" film that is drum scanned for offset printing.
Please need your support, which one is the best for landscape nikon D700 or D800? please advice May 27, 2014
My Nikon D800 takes amazing landscape photos. I've never owned a Nikon D700, so no clue with that one...
I was not aware that the D800 was not recommended for sport shoots. I can't comment on that issue since I never shoot sport events. Sorry. Gilbert.
As far as i know there is no "oil" issue with the D800, but rather the D600. Which has been replaced by the D610. I love my D800 and highly recommend it.. I hope this helps, Scott
