Many opinions on the web, including seasoned reviewers who ought to know better, seem to dismiss 12MPs as too little for general photography at base ISO. Of course more may be better, but that doesn't make what was previously available work any less well than it always has, as many, many images on this thread prove.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Thank you Steve.

    Well... I had the chance to own many gears like S2, D800 and all. At the end I find more pleasure and character in the D700 photos because of contrasts and colours (less DR). The D700 print very good, even cropped, on A0 prints. At the correct viewing distance it is as awesome as the D800. For me, the D800 is a tripod camera, really. What I do with the D700, I can't with the D800 because of shaking. Even for beauty shoots I either use the D700 or the DP3m (or MF). So I sold the D800.
    In my area, the D700 is the most wanted second hand camera, even for landscape photographers. So no, it is not a niche. PPL who say that are technicians or hobbyists. It is an extremely capable camera, very actual but who tend to be rare

    The magic of fat pixels

    When dpr reviewed the Canon 1Ds in 2002, they wrote in their conclusion:

    "Canon's full size CMOS sensor is certainly something that their R&D department should be proud of, it's clearly cutting edge technology to be able to firstly (a) have a full 35 mm size sensor which is economic enough to produce, (b) deliver a huge pixel count across that large frame size and (c) have enough bandwidth and processing power to shoot at up to three frames per second. On top of all that image quality is simply superb, great resolution, low noise and the excellent color response that we've come to expect from Canon Digital SLR's."

    The 1Ds, and the Nikon D2X that was introduced later were both considered amazing tools 10 years ago. They still are. There is a need for more resolution among some kinds of photographers, but fortunately, that doesn't seem to include me. On Monday, I'm going to the print-shop to check a 3 x 2 meter print of a photo I captured with a 16MP Panasonic camera last year. The photo will be used as part of the background wall for the exhibition booths at coming international trade fairs for one of my clients. I know they will be thrilled.

    One can always claim that 12 years is a long time, but pre-digital, it wasn't. The Nikon F3 was introduced in 1980 and remained in production until 2001. It was superseded twice (by the F4 in 1988 and the F5 in 1996), but still, it was considered a highly relevant tool for many photographers, and even though it isn't as relevant anymore, it's still a great tool. Film didn't progress much faster either during those times.
    I don't care what gear I have.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I think both Jorgen and Hulyss are spot on, it's all about what you do with your camera and that you DO something with it...

    When I shot MFD I stuck with my trusty P25 for years, it's in a way, the D700 of the phase backs, just a fab look from fat pixels.

    On the other hand I found moving from MF to the D800E liberating in so much as I could pick it up and go... yes it keeps you on your toes, if you chat too much whilst photographing a model it will let you know later with a few 'not quite sharp' files..

    We should all just get out more and shoot more, one of my fondest digital cameras was the trusty Fuji S2, as I walk down my stairs every day i glance at the 1m x 1m print of a shell, cropped of course from the APS sensor, it still blows me away and people often thought it was shot with a hasselblad V and macro lens.
    Here is the photo plus two editorial pics I did last year down in Antibes with a D800E.

    I stopped looking at Nikon cams after my D700...It still is a cam I love to use.

    For me, it has enough of everything; maybe more than enough. A true classic from Nikon.

    Two images from the archives..one cropped significantly..




    Both ZF lenses. 100/2, 50/1.4

    I agree Rayyan. It is a classic, and in capable hands like yours, it's easy to see why.

    +1 Fantastic photo and it gives me a feeling of a much larger format than anything that Nikon makes. What lens/camera did you use?
