Nikon Body Purchase

After retiring my Nikon D50 and the older 80-400 vr lense for bird photography my plan it to purchase the latest 80-400 AFS VR lense from Nikon but I can't make up my mind about which body to get. My thought is for birding a DX body would be best. If I were to photograph the same subject side by side with the same settings; light; exposure etc between a D7100 and a D7200 would both images look the same. I don't do alot of buffer type shooting mainly still owls; hawks; deer etc and the odd landscape shot.

Nikon D810A: The ultimate gift for the astronomer who has everything

Nikon has announced a highly-specialized version of its popular Nikon D810 DSLR, optimized for astrophotography – the Nikon D810A. It is nearly identical to the D810, except for a few key upgrades that make it ideal for astronomers:

  • Sensitive to H-alpha wavelengths (helpful for solar & nebulae photography)
  • Enhanced Live View operation when long exposure times are used
  • Additional information displayed in the Viewfinder to assist night time shooting
  • Manual-mode shutter speeds extended to 900 seconds (in M* mode)

New Nikon D750: Powerhouse upgrade for Nikon D600, Nikon D610 and Nikon D700 owners

nikon_d750_dslr_camera_body_1082599Nikon’s new Nikon D750 has something for nearly everyone. State-of-the-art Autofocus, improved 24MP sensor, brand-new, high-performance body design, 6.5 fps full-frame, 100% viewfinder, pro-quality video features, tilting LCD, and a fairly sane price tag of $2300. It is going to be a hard camera to resist for current owners of the Nikon D600, Nikon D610, Nikon D700, and even those who have a Nikon D800 but would love a little more speed and are getting tired of super-large files. I’ll be doing a full field-test when I’m back from Africa, but based on the specs, here are my quick thoughts on pros & cons:


Nikon’s Manual Viewer mobile app is a ‘must have’–and it is free
