Speed and power, without compromise. That’s how I’d sum up my impressiono the new Nikon D800. Established medium-ormat image quality isnow inside a phenomenal, incredibly responsive Nikon machine. At 36.3megapixels, the D800 produces unprecedented image quality and resolutionwithin a body that boasts revolutionary technological advances. The 3D colormatrix metering III, wide dynamic range and the improved AF perormancein low light are just a ew eatures that are glaring improvements. The D800allows me to concentrate on the light, the composition and my subjectwithout having to think about much else. In years past, wedding photographywas traditionally captured with medium-ormat equipment or maximumimage quality. When the 35mm ormat was adopted within the genre, it waswidely accepted that image quality was compromised in lieu o speed andconvenience. Now, my wedding portraiture will have a depth it’s never shownbeore, and my style o shooting will be enhanced rather than compromised,thanks to the D800.When I’m shooting beauty and jewelry in the studio or ashion on location,36.3 megapixels changes the industry standard: in image quality, dynamicrange, color rendering and the nal print. The detail rom the D800 producesthe look o a medium-ormat camera, but gives me the eel and response o aD-SLR. The improvements in rendering skin tone and specular highlights, aswell as abric and hair detail are superior to anything that has come beore.Autoocus quickly tracks models in motion. Nikon’s 91K-pixel RGB sensorhas noticeable improvements in metering accuracy, while the larger LCD iseasier to read. The camera body eels solid and ergonomically simple, whilealso eeling lighter and smaller than previous high-resolution Nikons. Newcameras always inspire me to test and explore, and all the useul eaturesin such a compact package will open huge creative possibilities or my high-quality prints and video.To me, cameras are more like paintbrushes than technology. The goal isnot megapixels or technique but the image, and while camera modelsare important, they are not the be-all or end-all. But ater a lietime usingcountless cameras, I have ound a new best riend. It was not love at rstsight. The sharpness and detail were initially intimidating, exposing my fawslike never beore. Subtle camera movements showed and dierences oacuity between aperture choices on various lenses were apparent. But now Iam enthralled with this technology. Why? Because the images almost eel asthough they were made with a 4x5 view camera! Special eatures like time-lapse photography and the improved HD video quality and fexibility also addtremendously to the camera’s personality. Ater spending a month with theD800, I’ll never be the same again. Perhaps the best compliment I can expressis that now I will think dierently about the images I make.As a modern architectural photographer I am always looking or a lightweight,compact and reliable camera system ullling the requirements o my personalartistic and client expectations. The Nikon D800 will set new standards orthe high-end 35mm D-SLR market. I have never worked with a 35mm digitalcamera that produces images with such exceptional quality and detail tillnow. Particularly, the live view mode enables extremely precise compositionsand easy ocusing in dim lighting, which simplies my workfow. Superiorquality lenses such as the PC NIKKOR tilt & shit lineup are indispensable orarchitectural photography. From my hands-on experience I ound that theyperectly match with the newly invented system and produce breathtakinglyclean, clear and sharp les. This camera gives me the photographic fexibilityto work at unusual shooting locations and capture images in an exceptionalrange o light. It denitely takes my photographic versatility and image qualityto a new level. What a new companion!
