Nikon D800 at 100%



Jim is very excited about Nikon's new D800. As we mentioned in our previous post, he was astounded by the image quality, and we wanted to show just how much detail the new camera produces. Below is Jim's French tree image and corresponding crops showing the image at 100%.



 This image was made using a Nikon D800 with Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II lens at f/8, 1/15sec and iso 100. The source of the crops are marked in red. ©Jim Brandenburg

  3. I'm looking forward to the D800E too, but the 100% samples on Nikon's web site look like bad cell phone pictures at 100%. I'm assuming they did something to the files during the jpg conversion process that ruined them, but if the real photos of my camera end up looking like that, I'm going to return it.

  4. Hi Jim,
    Did you do any manipulation in PhotoShop on this or are they straight from the camera?
    Thanks.

  5. Excellent work ant thank you for you insights on the D800. Will you use your D800 on your wildlife in addition to your landscapes? I enjoy shooting both and was considering the Nikon D800 as the body of choice.
