    Nikon D800

    16mm should be easy to handhold at much slower shutter speeds so I don't think a great test. Try handholding 300mm at 300/s :) I think the reality is, it's a great camera and we will all learn to use it in our own way. If we are getting bad photos, adapt to it or ask for help :)

    Applecross road (The Bealach na Ba) Scotland

    Drove it last week for second time. Lovely road. Applecross Inn is to die for. Not digging the shot I'm afraid, low qulity of light and general lack of focal point. A very hard thing to get I guess - buy a helicopter :D G.

    Really? Can't stand weddings :D We are fairly high volume and lowish average spend, which is a difficult animal to keep feeding. We have made a LOT of changes recently and in our two largest studios we have managed to increase our average sale by an additional £80 ish. It's been really...

    Ha :D It's mental. Taking a well deserved rest - have a few wars on the way - I need to prepare for them, some of them rather big :D We have halted at five studios and a hair salon, any more and the loony bin would be my final destination! Missed this place but it seems to be completely...

    I prefer the larger bulkier feel of the D3 which to be fair, is a tank. Add a battery grip to this, I'm sure it will make up the difference. Hey Hoppy :D How are you? Gary.

    Could be very long exposures? Moving objects are rendered invisible sometimes. Escalators though are still :D

    Well according to various sources, which I cannot claim are correct, the higher the resolution, the more problematic hand holding becomes. Perhaps this is ONLY in the world of pixel peeping, and the reality is different. I read that the camera should be treated almost like a medium or large...

    Ever since I had my D3 I have had a complete OCD over trying to keep the camera as vibration and shake free as possible. I used to do a LOT of long exposures (in excess of 10 min). G.

    For Landscapes? Yes - I use a tripod with any camera if I am doing landscapes to be fair. Gary.

    For the record, any landscape shot I take on any DSLR I use a tripod. I also use a self release timer, and shutter delay (if available). I don't have the knowledge to claim any FUD about the D800. My techniques might be ridiculous but Ill get over it :) Gary.

    Just purchased this to help with the processing. It's not bleeding edge by any means but its practical and neat / tidy. Screen is lovely too, and touchscreen friendly :) Quad Core I5 and 6GB ram with 1TB HDD. I think it has a shedload of dedicated graphics memory too. 23" Touch...

    I bought the E because I was bored waiting for the non E. 70% landscapes, 25% candid portraits, 5% studio portraits.... G.
