    D800E for bird photography, May 22, 2012

    This review is from: Nikon D800E 36.3 MP CMOS FX-Format Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) (Electronics)

    Like others, I debated on whether or not to choose the D800E or the D800. I’m primarily a nature photographer, so my inclination was to get the D800E. The one potential problem situation was with moire on bird feathers. I ultimately chose the D800E based on the logic that birds have so many feathers at different angles and proportions that significant moire would be very unlikely.

    Well I received my D800E two days before a planned trip to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. After more than 2500 images under all conditions, I have to rate the camera as spectacular – a step beyond excellent. Image quality and detail are stunning. I was using a Nikon 200-400 f/4 VR and a Nikon 600 f/4 VR for most of my images. The level of detail is simply stunning. There is detail that I have never before seen from any camera. I’m seeing resolution at 100% (1/7th the image) that is suitable for a web post or small print. And noise is completely absent at lower ISO levels and minimal even at ISO 6400.

    You know going in that the D800E only has a frame rate of 4 fps. That’s enough for a quick burst at critical action. With birds I’m shooting at 1/1000 second or faster so I am already trying to capture critical action and a catchlight in just a few frames. At burst rates it does take a little time to write to the card, but I never came close to filling the buffer.

    One of the things that has been underappreciated is the new AF system. The new AF system of the D800 is excellent – very quick and accurate. There have been some reports of AF errors with the D800 – especially using the widest sensor and a wide angle lens. I have not seen that issue on my copy of the D800E.

    The ergonomics and controls are very intuitive. This is a camera you can immediately pick up and use – just like other Nikons. The one adjustment I had to make was with exposure compensation. The direction of the exposure comp has been reversed, but can be customized in the camera menu settings.

    While there have been reports of the need for a tripod or special technique, I shot the D800E just as I would have used earlier cameras. If you miss focus the image is still soft, but there is no problem using the camera handheld or on a gimbal head.

    File sizes are large – and as expected the large files put greater demand on your computer. Large files understandably take longer to open and to save. But this is to be expected.

    Colors and dynamic range at ISO 200 are spectacular. Even at high ISO levels, colors are very acceptable.

    Overall, I am very pleased with the D800E and highly recommend it for advanced amateur and pro nature photographers. This is not a camera for a beginner or someone who is not skilled. This is a camera for someone who is skilled, understands the tradeoffs involved, and wants the best image quality possible in a DSLR.

    EDIT June 16, 2012
    I’ve continued to use the D800E and my opinion has not changed. It’s a great camera. One thing to be aware of is the depth of field. Because the in focus area is so extremely sharp, your specific focus point and depth of field require a little more thought. Your choice of what parts of the image should be in sharpest focus will be rewarded, but if you make the wrong choice you can really tell the difference.

    Why I sold my D800 to buy a D800E, August 10, 2012

    This review is from: Nikon D800E 36.3 MP CMOS FX-Format Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) (Electronics)

    I bought one of the first D800 bodies Nikon sold. And, yes, I had the left-side AF issues that other folks describe in these reviews. I had been using the camera for a couple of months, and was very pleased with the quality of images I was getting. However, I decided to have the left side focus points fixed in case I ever needed to move my focus point over to the left side. I sent my D800 in to Nikon USA Repair in Melville, NY. It came back fixed and worked great.

    In the meantime, a D800E arrived that had been on order since February 7th. After a week of shooting both the D800 and D800E, I decided to sell the D800 and buy another D800E. I like to have two identical bodies so I always have a backup camera on treks, and one that has the same controls as my other body. I was planning to keep the D800 as my backup until I saw the images coming out of the D800E and after I did extensive testing with the FoCal software from Reikan Technology.

    I only shoot RAW (Nikon NEF format). While I could post process the images from the D800 and D800E using Adobe Creative Suite CS6, and make them look almost identical…they were in fact not identical. As long as I was shooting landscapes, the images from the two cameras would appear to have the same level of details in my first prints. However, when I started to do prints larger than 16 in x 24, I was convinced the D800E was the winner. You could clearly see the finer details.

    After I started using the FoCal software to do my AF Fine Tuning, I also found major differences in the sharpness the D800E could produce. While FoCal is not currently designed for use in comparing camera bodies, it does provide that capability if you carefully control the lighting on your target, the distance to target and the camera/lens settings. When I did this apples-to-apples comparison between the D800 and the D800E on all of my Nikon lens (14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, 200-400mm), I found the aperture sharpness results for the D800E were substantially higher than the results from the D800 for every lens…and consistently so. When I zoomed in on the shots of the target for a visual comparison, I could also see a difference, especially in the fine details in the target.

    I don’t yet know how much more details I will get for all types of shots, but I do know I can crop the D800E images significantly more than I can crop D800 images and end up with better details. For any kind of animal or bird shot, where I do not have the luxury of setting up for perfect composure, having more details means I can worry about composition later because I know I can crop more. I have cropped down to 10% of some D800E images, and still had enough details to make a nice 8×10 print without using special fractal software. Now that is detail I can live with!

    Amazing Clarity – Nikon D800 vs D800E, October 2, 2012

    I originally ordered a Nikon D800E but after 4 months on a waiting list I settled for a Nikon D800. I shot it for a week or so, but when the Nikon D800E became available I jumped at the opportunity to own the camera I had originally pre-ordered. I shot both camera’s with a Nikon 85mm 1.4G and they were both amazingly sharp with detail I’ve never seen from the format before. I started shooting the Nikon D800E today and it is plainly evident that their is a fidelity that is simply beyond what is available from the Nikon D800. The colors are also better, its hard to explain but they seem to be more true/accurate. Overall, I am highly impressed with both cameras but simply cannot believe the fidelity and quality that I am getting from the D800E. Well worth the wait & cost. I hope this helps a prospective buyer!
