Tapioca Farm House, Sitting comfortably

On my last trip out to Belgium with Matthew Adams and Danny Batchelor one of the locations we visited was Tapioca Farm House. A little wee farmhouse in abit of a state but quite photogenic with some nice bits and pieces and the odd religious cross here and there.

This was back in the summer and the weather was glorious which made the mooching rather relaxed and pleasant. Only a small house but a couple of nice shots to be had.

Shot with my Nikon D800 and a Samyang 12mm fisheye f/2.8 lens.

Ok im sold, im going to preorder a D800 🙂

The specs are really just crazy, ok it’s not a low light monster but those ISO’s are really above a D700 and considering how old the D700 is it’s no wonder. Ok, there will be a low light monster from Nikon shortly maybe a D400 but what the D800 has to offer is really quite stunning.

Yep, 36 megapixels is going to be crap to work with but where talking the same specs as a medium format camera for a fraction of the cost. So im also going to need a new computer.. but I say that every year 🙂

So the D800 was announced yesterday, looks to be a serious studio camera. But I really need a low light monster like it’s predecessor the D700. Ive been waiting for the official specs and checking the internet almost daily. So Im back to square one should I get the fantastic low light D700 even though it’s ancient now or maybe even the D3S. Only thing is the 12 megapixels.. but do I really need big prints? Well, not today but I want a body that I can keep and what if I need more then 12 megapixels in the future.

Maybe I should wait to see what the 5D Mk 3 has to offer 🙁
