Nikon D800 Review

The Nikon D800 is a 36.3-megapixel professional-grade full-frame digital single-lens reflex camera produced by Nikon Corporation. It was given a Gold Award by Digital Photography Review.

It was officially announced on February 7, 2012 and went on sale in late March 2012 for the suggested retail price of $2999.95 in the U.S., £2399 in the UK, and €2892 in the Eurozone. Shortly after the camera went on sale, Nikon’s UK subsidiary increased the price of the D800 in that market by £200 to £2599, saying that the original price was due to an “internal systems error”. However, Nikon honored the original price for all pre-orders placed before March 24, and added that no price changes would be made in other markets.

The successor is the Nikon D810 – announced June 26, 2014.

GPS interface for direct geotagging supported by Nikon GP-1

At the time of its release, the Nikon D810 became the Dxomark image sensor leader, replacing the Nikon D4 in the top position.

The D800E is a specialized version which uses a new optical anti-aliasing filter with no low-pass filter effect (no blurring) to obtain the sharpest images possible. Nikon claims that possible aliasing effects (moiré) can be lessened by software-processing in camera or external programs like Nikon’s Capture NX2.

Reviewers have pointed out that whilst increased moiré is difficult to remove in post-processing, it is relatively easy to combat while photo-taking (such as by changing the angle, aperture or position). Furthermore, moire is rarely found in photos (besides man-made, repeated patterns such as in architecture). Hence, most recommend the D800E, as the lack of low-pass filter brings about a noticeable improvement in optical resolution.

Mislabelled D800 as D800E fraud

Nikon has advised that there are mislabelled Nikon D800E in circulation that are actually the D800 model with the front cover replaced so as to appear like a D800E. A D800 modified to appear to be a D800E is not covered under Nikon warranty. Nikon advises users to “please take all necessary precautions to ensure the authenticity of a camera before purchasing one”.

To detect fake models the user has to display an image captured with the camera in the camera’s monitor. The name of the camera used to capture the image will be displayed at the top right corner of the display, when the overview display option is enabled in full-frame playback mode. If the correct model number is displayed, it is supposed to be authentic, otherwise it is a fake.

Iceland travel photography visiting Jokulsarlon, Skogafoss, Godafoss, Seljalandsfoss, waterfalls, Reykjavik, Fluidir, Harpa building, Akureyri, Gulfoss, Vik, Myvatn and the great Geysir.

Iceland has some of the most beautiful scenery and landscapes to see and photograph. A relatively small Island so easy to navigate although a 4×4 vehicle is the best way to get around and explore.

Photos taken with the Nikon D800.

How to do Night Time Long exposure photography | shutter speed ISO and aperture settings

My camera settings of long exposure photos Ive taken during the night. With my shutter speed, ISO and aperture settings.

Photos taken on a mixture of cameras including Nikon D800, Sony A7R and Samsung NX3000. But all these photos can be done with similar results using any camera.

A tripod is required and remote shutter release or if your camera has a timer then that will work fine.

Photographing Antelope Canyon Navajo slot canyon Page Arizona USA Navajo Nation

Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona. Antelope Canyon includes two separate, scenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as “Upper Antelope Canyon” or “The Crack”; and “Antelope Canyon” or “The Corkscrew”.

The Navajo name for Upper Antelope Canyon is Tsé bighánílíní, which means ‘the place where water runs through rocks’. Lower Antelope Canyon is Hazdistazí (called “Hasdestwazi” by the Navajo Parks and Recreation Department), or ‘spiral rock arches’. Both are in the LeChee Chapter of the Navajo Nation.

Exploring Abandoned Packard Motor Plant Detroit Michigan USA

The Packard Automotive Plant is a former automobile-manufacturing factory in Detroit, Michigan where luxury cars were made by the Packard Motor Car Company and later by the Studebaker-Packard Corporation.

The Packard plant was opened in 1903 and at the time was considered the most modern automobile manufacturing facility in the world with skilled craftsmen involved in over eighty trades. The factory complex closed in 1958, though other businesses operated on the premises or used it for storage until the late 1990s.

A number of the outer buildings were in use by businesses up through the early 2000s. In 2010, the last remaining tenant, Chemical Processing, announced its intention to vacate the premises after 52 years.

Since its abandonment, the plant has been a haven for graffiti artists, urban explorers, paintballers and auto scrappers, and much of the wiring and other building material has been scavenged. In one incident, vandals pushed a dump truck from the fourth floor. Karen Nagher, the executive director of the nonprofit organization Preservation Wayne, stated that she was irked to see people come from “all over the world” to poke around Detroit. “Piece by piece, they’re disassembling those buildings, making it harder and harder to restore them”.

Despite many years of neglect and abuse, the reinforced concrete structures remain mostly intact and structurally sound. Portions of the upper floors of several small sections in various buildings have collapsed or been partly demolished and lay in ruins in the wake of several aborted attempts at demolition over the years.

Many films have been shot here including most recently scenes for the Michael Bay fifth Transformers movie, staring Mark Wahlberg.
