Moving from D800e – D850
I have been using Nikon camera gear for over 7 years now and I have never been let down by the quality of their products. My first Nikkon Camera was the D3x which was the flagship model at the time. Pro body camera with 24megapixels and over 13 stops of dynamic range. I loved that camera for many reasons even though it was the most expensive piece of photography equipment that I had ever purchased, over $8000 and that was with a great discount. Shortly after that, I added the D3s to my kit which was an amazing camera too. This was another pro body camera but this time it allowed me to shoot amazing quality images in low light or handheld situation. You have all heard the saying, It’s not the gear that takes the photo, its the photographer’. I agree with that to a certain extent but having good quality camera gear definitely does make a difference.
Step into 2012 and the Nikon D800e was released and I jumped at the chance to grab a couple of them immediately. This was a lighter camera with better image quality and larger file sizes. Again, megapixels are not the be all and end all of photography. But they’re kind of important when you are producing large format prints. And at that time I was really excited to be able to print at up to and beyond ninety-inch prints with amazing detail. I continued to use my D800e’s for 6 years and I was really happy with how they performed.
