Title: Why Buying a new Nikon D600/D800 ?
Post by: REX (aka TG) on February 23, 2013, 05:13:26 PM


For the first time Nikon officially acknowledged the dust/oil spots on the sensor inside the D600 camera

Few updates on the Nikon D600 oil spots issue :) The good news is that no new oil spots get accumulated over time as reported today by LensRentals: “Things are definitely better. Where 20 of 20 cameras required cleaning 6 weeks ago, only 11 of 20 did this time (our average for all SLRs would be about 5 of 20). Like [...]
The root cause is a misalignment of the AF module when mounted, outside of Nikon's own production tolerances....

They just need to admit the faults with the D800 now? :-)

Left sensor issue
10 pin connector issue
green screen issues

Wonder what the D7100 will have?

It will be interesting to see if they've cured the focussing problems that plagued so many D7000's, but which Nikon never admitted to!

I was chatting to a photographer working for a private air ambulance company thats based with us at work a few weeks ago.

He shot with the D800, he said it was a fantastic camera but it had changed the way he shoots. The sharpness and level of grain in the pictures overall was greater than he had expected.

He now frames a shot with much more space at the sides to allow for crop. In short he said that only 1/2 to 2/3 of the sensor is usable for a pro photog making the camera a very expensive 16-24mp system.

The most interesting bit about speaking to him was watching his shoot. He used 12 bare flash guns to shoot the aircraft, positioning them both outside and inside to get the looks he wanted.

Interesting Dave, you learn all sorts of things on here.   I did not know that the D800 had issues.
I am sure all makes have "issues" at times and most would quietly patch them.
Did we not have a case of a firmware update for a Sony model ( I forget which one) recently that  accidentally cured a  Minor irritation at the same time as updating what it was claimed to update?   john

Some friends with D800 say....(i am using only the center one AF sensor so no problem if the left one is out of alignment) :D


D600 not any body from my friends have but why shall a new camera must be actuated for 3000 shots that the dust and oil come out from the shutter mechanisms?:D


Mechanichal and software issues are always there but for me what Nikon makes this is not acceptable at that Price range and if there are issue problems i prefer to be software :)
