Practical realities of D800 file size

Featured Sunday, 08 July 2012 05:22

Travelling whilst shooting extensively with the D800E has raised some issues.

It goes beyond buying bigger HDDs to put in your computer.

    Hi Mat,
    I’m not out to scaremonger, I too am a Nikon guy and I have been so, professionally, for much longer than you but the ten pin socket on my D800 has just broken off and slipped inside the body. This type of thing has never happened on any other Nikon of mine in forty years. Nikon UK claim this is physical damage, not a faulty component and so is not covered under warrantee. All I can say Mat is, be very gentle with that 10-pin socket on your D800/E.

    Mat,
    I don’t know if the above post has had any material effect on the outcome or not but having agreed the estimate my D800 was repaired in super quick time and returned to Calumet my dealer here in UK, who charged me nothing for their part in the after sales service. Having collected it from them today, I arrived home just a few hours to find a message from Nikon UK saying that they had reviewed the repair and decided it should have been, as I suggested, covered under warrantee and the charge would be refunded.
    I am posting this to put the record straight and assure your readers that while I am unhappy with the whole incident, I am more than impressed with the camera and remain a Nikon Guy myself, through and through.

    Hi Mat
    I´m getting into macro and now have a D800, a 24-70 2.8, a 70-200 2.8 VR2 a 28-300 3.5, 5.6 VR2 and a 50 1.8,
    I´m thinking of buying the Kenko extension tubes I saw in one of your videos.
    I think that the 50 mm will be the most comfortable lens to use because of the weight.
    I would like to know what happens if I use all 3 kenko extension tubes 12,20,36 with the 50mm 1.8 lens, will I get 1:1 macro capabilities?
    The quality of the pictures will be similar to what you get with the 105 nikon 2.8? or not.
    Kind regards
    Jorge
