Nikon D810 Official Underwater Sample Photo

Nikon announced the Nikon 810, its D800 and D800e replacement earlier today. Embedded with an EXPEED 4 image processor and a 36MP sensor with no optical low-pass filter, this looks like a really cool machine for underwater. Not to mentioned its ability to lower  its ISO setting to ISO 64 where brilliant noise free images is expected.

Here’s one of the first D810 underwater images taken with 100% cropped.
Image was taken with Ai AF Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm f/2.8D as 14-bit RAW then converted to and resize to JPEG. 100% cropped also included.

I am really looking forward for more underwater sample photos taken by Nikon D810, this is definitely in my watch list for my next underwater camera hunt.

Nikon D4s Official Video

Nikon D4s Official Video

I am impressed with the level of seriousness that Nikon had decided to showcase their most up to date shooting machine the Nikon D4s.
While reading the full of text press release and product specification of this full metal machine allow you to get the level of details you will need, this video provides you another interesting view of this machine. This video was shot in Bhutan

What I like about the Nikon D4s:
1. ISO ranges from the standard 100-25,600 and can be expanded up to 409,600. This is incredible for those who enjoy shooting with natural lights only.
2. Faster auto-focus with multiple intelligence group AF points activated during its 11fps shooting interval.
3. Compact Flash, I can still use those leftover from my D2x!

Nikon to continue servicing D600, may replace if you get lucky

Nikon released earlier that they are going to continue to service your D600 even if it is already out of warranty period.  They may replace a D600 or equivalent model ( we are looking at D610) if the issue is persistent after a few services.

This is extremely beneficial for potential buyer from the 2nd hand market, you can be rest assured that you still get Nikon’s support even though if it is already over 1 year warranty period. Continue reading “Nikon to continue servicing D600, may replace if you get lucky”
