p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Nikon D800 or the D800E that is the question ???


Hi All

This is my first post on here and I would like to ask you all the question do I get the D800 or the D800E

Im a equestrian photographer and alot of my work is out side and I am doing more and more adverisitng work for equestrian brands in and out of studios.

I am really set on the D800 however after seeing the images posted on here in teh D800E post and looking at the 100% crops it does have that slight edge over the D800.

As you can imagen for my advertising work I would need the highest quality possible (remeber alot of the adveritisng images are shot outside at comps) however I am a little worried about the D800E with its anit thing filter taken out and risk of having to do alot of post production work before sending images off.

so which do you all think I should get ? the D800 or the D800E ?

Personally, I think they are pretty close, but if I had to sell one, the regular 800 would go and I'd keep the E.

Go with the E and be happy! I had tried both for sometime, and the 800 went back, the E stayed. Moire is not an issue. It's not just the details or resolution. The E version is void of the cloudiness that I've seen in almost every 35mm format DSLR. I can easily use 100% crop of an image without further processing.

I have the d800. Not saying there is no difference, but from all my testing from images online and reading digilloyd's in-depth comparisons, I have to say I cannot tell the difference between a properly sharpened d800 and d800e.

I say get which ever one you can get your hands on first. They are the same camera and imo unless your printing @ max all the time, your better off working on your PP than worrying about a tiny bit of sharpness.

My experience as well, especially cropping . . . . . . but

This is true as well. It's hard to tell one from the other. My E doesn't have any AF issues though, the 800 did.

If I was involved in paid advertising work that includes photographing equestrian events, neither! I'd choose a D3s or D4: a professional camera.
