Liveview not useable with studio strobes, limits usefulness of camera

Mac, Nikon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: Very excited about the potential of this camera, but it urgently needs a firmware update. It "should" be a top-notch studio camera, tripod mounted for very high-res portraits.

More down sides than up

Snappy, buydig.com
1 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Disappointed in the images as compared to my expectations, based upon what I'd been reading. I certainly did not do an exhaustive comparison, but to my eye the pictures were no better than my D300 and the green tint made for more work in post processing. Was this review helpful? |
  • Pros: Controls Akin To My D300
  • Cons: Huge Files Slow To Load, Green Tint To Screen, Did Not Fit My Hand Well, White Balance Difficult

Stars Off For Quality Issues and Poor Support

Preston S. Page "Preston Page", Amazon
4 September 2012
  • Summary: The Nikon D800 is for me an upgrade to the D700 and has been a mixed blessing. In general, I like the camera, but it turns out to be very high maintenance. Pros - First, the resolution and dynamic range are superb. No DSLR does better.

Left Focus Issue - Two Times

Spartan27, Amazon
20 August 2012
  • Summary: Ordered one in mid July. It had the left focus problem. Sent it back for refund. Ordered another one in late July. Same thing--left focus issue. Also sent back for refund. Amazon customer service is excellent about this, but it's still frustrating and time consuming.

batch #303xxxx still has the left AF point issue

Alexey "Alexey", Amazon
2 August 2012
  • Summary: Batch #303xxxx still has the left AF point issue. No green tint though, at least to my eyes. Good that I've bought this warranty that came with it, this should cover shipping to Nikon for calibration.
