Debunking all myths

I recieved my D800E in time for a two-week photo trek through Peru. It was intended to be used as a back-up to my D4, but it quickly became the go-to camera for portraits and lanscape shots. The camera perfomed wonderfully under all types of conditions. Unlike all the reviews I had read, this camera can indeed be: Hand-held at slow speeds instead of only being tripod mounted. Used at high ISO speeds with incredible detail. Used for shots involving a lot of textile and colors. If moire is an issue, stop down the lens a bit more and eliminate any concerns. The lenses most often used on this camera were the 50mm f/1.4 and the 16mm - 35mm zoom. I am attaching some photos and 100% crops to show detail. All are hand-held, speeds up to 1/90th and ISO between 200 and 800.

Great Images -- can not use Adobe RAW or see SD card

I waited 6 months for the camera to be delivered and after getting all the accessories and new lenses I was ready (new CF & SD card, software updates from Adobe Lightroom 4, Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended, USB 3.0 router, New GPS and Nikon Microphone) It finally arrive two days before Father’s day (great present for me) and I started shooting some test shots at La Jolla shores seals. Shots look great in the camera so I attached the D800’s new USB cord to the new 3.0 router plugged into a 3.0 port and right away there was a problem. I get a message “Your transfers will go faster if you use a 3.0 USB portâ€�. Could it be the router is wrong or the cable? Re-cabled the camera directly into the USB 3 of the computer and got the same message. Ignored it and started Nikon Transfer (newest version) and it was slow and the images came across and were displayed in Viewer. Also, opened the images in Nikon NX2 NEF (RAW) and they looked great but after making some corrections, I was not able to save as a NEF file â€" got an error message and had to convert to TIFF to save the changes. No problem â€" yet. Next, I tried to open the NEF files in Adobe Lightroom 4, and they would not DISPLAY or copy. I was using “Lossless compressionâ€� so I thought it might be an incompatibility with Adobe’s new RAW version 7.1 but I got the same results when I tried to open the NEF in Photoshop CS6 Extended. Nothing would display, only an error message saying Adobe does not recognize the file type. Shot some test shots without compression (NEF/RAW) and tried to download them directly from the camera in Lightroom 4 and Adobe CS6, same error message. Took the CF card OUT OF THE CAMERA, and put in a card reader and tried to view them in Lightroom 4 and CS6 and FINALLY!!! I could see the images and copy them directly to Adobe, open them in NX2 and work and save them as NEF files. Next problem showed when I tried to format the two cards in the camera. I should have been given a choice to select CF or SF but there was no choice and the format process only took place on the CF card (a Lexar 32gb 1,000x expensive card). The SD card (SanDisk Extreme Pro 64gb 95mb/s) card could NOT be seen through the cable using NX2. To format the SD card you must REMOVE the CF card first. I called Nikon Technical support and after two hours waiting and talking to “NU_DELLIâ€� I was told to ship my brand new Nikon D800 to a Nikon Repair station for repair. WHAT??? No one tested this before shipping millions of cameras or was it just mine. I called three friends that just got their D800’s and they all came over and found the same results. THERE’S SOMETHING IN THE HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE THAT CORRUPTS RAW IMAGES IN THE CAMERA if the cable is used to transfer the images and the format operation needs an update. By the way, the first thing I did when I got the new camera was upgrade the camera BIOS to the latest version. What is Nikon doing about it? I called today and they said “We’re working one itâ€� The work-around for all you Nikon lovers before you switch to the dark side and dump Nikon for Canon â€" AGAINâ€"is to get a good USB 3.0 card reader. Amazon has some at great prices. Shoot your RAW images, remove the card, insert it into the card reader and transfer your images using Nikon Transfer or windows copy command and then everything works some-what OK. Needless to say I still have my Nikon F1, a NASA Titanium F2S servo & motor drive with data back, FE, FG, F4 with data back, F5 with data back, D100, D200, D300 all with grips and they all still work great. I have spent almost $10,000 on a new system to find it doesn’t work correctly and I will have to ship it to El Segundo for how knows how long at my expense and wait. I’ve already waited 6 months to get it and now I’m going to have to give it up for repair. My recommendation, wait and don’ buy another Nikon product until they fix the problems, and bring Technical support back to the US where we can understand them.

Light unit with almost everything.

Comments about Nikon D800 FX-Format Digital SLR Camera, Body Only:

As a nature photographer with my ability to reach the great satisfaction, D800 is the camera I enjoy most .I still love to use D2x and D3 as backup. I carry D800 and D3 in my bag,almost all the time. With my nature work using D3 and D2x, D800 is great addition to my work.

Excellent Camera

By ThomasP

from Maine

Comments about Nikon D800 FX-Format Digital SLR Camera, Body Only:

I have been shooting with this camera for a little over a year and am very happy with its characteristics. Excellent low light shooting and incredible detail. I have used it all over the world shooting wildlife as well as landscapes and people. I have added it to my D3x when traveling and especially like it on days that I don't want to carry around the weight of the D3x. Both of these cameras perform especially well when paired with high end Nikon lenses. The picture of the owl shown was shot at 8:00 in the evening with the D800, a 200-400 f4.0 lens, at 1600 ISO. Amazing color and clarity. Well worth the money.

Great Camera

By Brownbomber2

from Missouri, USA

Comments about Nikon D800 FX-Format Digital SLR Camera, Body Only:

I went from a D3200 to the D800 and found it easy to learn. I use it with a Nikon 500mm F/4 super telephoto lens and love it. It recently developed a focusing issue and is currently in the shop at Nikon, forcing me to use my D7100. There is night and day difference in the two cameras, even though the D7100 is an excellent camera. My wish and advice for Nikon is to improve this camera by removing the ability to do video and concentrate all the electronics and image processing for still photos and maybe to increase the ability to shoot and focus a bit faster. I have never done a video with the camera and have no intention of doing one. I love outdoor photography and the resolution of this sensor is outstanding. The new D810 just looks like a D800 E to me with a different number. Make a camera for just still photography for us die hard camera buffs!

D800

By Kyle1234

from Minnesota, USA

Comments about Nikon D800 FX-Format Digital SLR Camera, Body Only:

I have decided to leave Nikon. Quality problems and Nikon's refusal to take video seriously. The D800 is an OK camera. There is really nothing special about it. I honestly think the Canon 6D is a better camera than this and its cheaper.
