The d800 has arrived! [May. 9th, 2012|07:53 am]

I was hoping that my Nikon d800 would show up before the last group of roller derby portraits or before the Amanda Palmer shoot but it showed up the day after. The big difference between this and my 4 year old d700 is that it's 32 megapixels rather than 12. The files are enormous and it's got everybody curious.

Here's a shot of trillian_stars we did in the studio last night and it's linked to the full res 14mb image if you're curious as to how those things look. I'm sure we'll have more in the coming weeks, and a full blown review.

Y'know, even as a Canon/Leica guy I gotta admit that is one HELL of an image. Quite aside from the subject - just as a technical question that's damned imnpressive. Did you shoot raw and convert, or is that the camera file?

I got a Nikon D5100 for Christmas and love it. I did encounter a shutter failure that Nikon fixed as part of the warranty.

I have always been a point and shoot photographer, but would love to utilize all that my new toy has to offer. I don't have the time to take a course and am curious if you know of any simple resources to learn about photography (long exposures, f stop, etc). Any help would be pretty excellent..

I guess next time you take my picture I better make sure I trim my nose hairs first.

As big as my monitor is, this pic gets pretty close to life-sized. Wow.

You could make Trillian Stars beautiful with only one pixel.
