aglet, I've been reading your posts a bit now. Can you post some of your D800 Photos here?
I was saving some good examples to post on my web site but, considering how laggard I've been updating it this summer, i could maybe post a little something here.
, the most impressive is the inside of a black lens cap, shot at 1/200s, f/16, in a dark room and pushed 4 stops in post.
Anything specific you'd like to see? I haven't been able to get out and shoot much with it, despite intents.
I've got an ISO 3200 close-up of and ant I took when I first got it and was playing around with it in the back yard.
It's kind of impressive considering very little NR was used.
I took a few colorful, post-storm, sunset-silhouette shots at Lesser Slave Lake AB last month. They were done with a D800 and ancient 20mm lens at ISO 400 but that doesn't really showcase its abilities. Even Canon bodies can shoot great sunsets and I proceeded to shoot dozens more of them with my 60D after taking a few shots with the 800, all of them more impressive than those I shot with the D800.
I DO have a landscape of sorts tho, where extreme shadow pushing in post yields a nice HDR type effect covering a Dynamic Range from sunlit cumulus clouds to the texture of charcoal in shade. With ZERO NR applied and no noise visible in the pushed shadows. Similar shot from my 60D is already on this site in the HDR gallery, near the bottom of page 2 -www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=8065.15
The other one with the charcoal is a bit more extreme. I intend to prep that one for a poster.
