Here is another of our videos offering tips and inisights into the business of photography. a transcript of the video is included after the jump.
TRANSCRIPT:Here are a few thoughts on the Nikon D4 versus the Nikon D800. I'm John Harrington. We really like the Nikon D4, but truth be told, we really like the Nikon D800 as well. We actually got the D4 first and then decided well we'll get the D800 as well. We think that both cameras are two different tools that need to be in the same tool chest. If you need that extra megapixel and you're shooting under a controlled environment and you don't have to go up to those crazy high ISOs that the D4 can go to, the D800 is a great tool. We use it for magazine covers when were doing a lot of work with magazines. When we're trying to do advertising work, or were shooting tethered straight into the computer. A D800 as a great camera, but the D4 is awesome. We do not use D4 using, you know, continuous high you know maximum shutter frames per second, we're not that type of photographer, but the D4 is great. The file size is awesome the high ISO is just incredible. So as we're sitting here saying D4 vs D800 it really is both.
