    Updated deliver status D800/D800E/D4

    Thought this would be a useful thread as a lot of us are buying in on these new models to keep folks updated on shipping progress and from what retailers. I'm sure many have preorders and such and this may just help kill the agonizing time till Fedx shows up at your door. I know I have ZERO patience waiting for gear. Lol

    Odd though I can't get the newest version of ACR 6.6 to work with the raw files. On Adobes website they state it works for the D4, but my version does not recognize the files. Can't get the wireless transmitter utility to work on my Mac Pro either, though it does work on the MBP. Early stage hiccups.

    Thanks Guy, that worked for PS CS5 but oddly enough not for Lightroom 3.0. Not sure why one program would recognize ACR 6.7 and the other apparently revert to 6.6.

    Lots of folks reporting their D4's arriving, but I haven't seen any reports yet of a D800 ready to be picked up from the dealer.

    I guess the real way to know D800's are shipping is when one shows up on eBay. First D4's are already there.

    Makes sense since the D4 was announced about a month prior to the D800. If the D4's are arriving, I would guess you will see people getting thei D800's in the next couple of weeks.

    with the d4 i got the standard 'it's shipping email' from NPS, then i got a personal one from the NPS manager in charge of the early delivery program. so my guess is the D800 will be same--emails first a day or two before arriving.

    btw, associate was doing a job for a major retail chain this week and lots of issues with moire with canon 5d mkii. hope d800 is better

    Same thing here on my delivery, D4 arrived much faster than I had anticipated.

    Have lots of garments to shoot next week but early test indicate no moire. Clean as a whistle thus far.

    Just posted a few D4 images will show more shortly.

    Yesterday salesman at B+H said they were expecting the d800 any day, but he wasn't sure about the size of their allocation or how long it would take to ship them out. He had heard they had 7000 pre-orders.

    There is a small Nikon dealer in Memphis that I happened to visit and he actually had an 800 in the back room for a customer...... so they are being delivered.

    I have to buy a lottery. Lucky me! I've got the D800!!!!!
    Thanks to a customer at Mike Camera who told me to run to BestBuy as this is the last one out of 4.
    The problem is I have no Nikon lens to use with it.

    Amazing! I thought the world would be sold out for months.

    Please get your hands on some lenses!


    I put in an order yesterday for both a d800 and a d800E.

    This felts strange, since I cannot afford either camera. But my assumption is that when Amazon is caught up on their backorders and can ship, I will be ready to buy one of them, and will have gotten enough feedback to pick one and cancel the other.

    The joke will be on me if $6300 worth of camera shows up on my stoop next week.

    Re: Updated deliver status D800/D800E/D4

    Seriously. I strolled into my local Best Buy at 3:30 in the afternoon. The manager told me they didn't get any, but he could sell me one from another store, and he knew a store 30 miles away that got 8 of them. So I had him ring me up and took a drive -- in the bay area at rush hour, but I took it anyway

    PS: When I got to the other store to pick it up, the manager in that store asked what the big deal was -- she could not believe there was so much interest in such an expensive camera!

    PPS: Manager from first store told me that they sell more camera equipment that any there store in the bay area, but that new items are distributed to stores based on total sales volume, and this particular store is low on that. So the reality is, the one store where they had two salesmen that knew photo product and understood exactly what it was, didn't get a single D800 to sell directly, but probably sold the majority of them for other stores in the surrounds.

    My local dealer (and a good friend) was not on vacation, but he has not been notified by Nikon that any D800Es have actually been shipped to them yet. I'm second on the list here in Anchorage and hoping a camera shows up here this week, despite the lack of notification from Nikon. There are no NPS members with orders for a D800E at my local dealer.

    Re: Updated deliver status D800/D800E/D4

    I just got home and opened the box. The camera looks quite a bit different than the regular d800 I've been shooting for a few weeks - it has a small e on the front. I'm going to shoot some pinpoint stars tonight before hitting the road, and that may be all that I shoot for a while with it (my main reason for getting it). My local camera store is Bedfords.com, but they also have sold a lot of d800s via their online store, and delivered 40-something already, but this was their first E. Great folks to deal with...

    Hey Jan, it's the cheapest digital camera I've purchased in many years by a long shot (except for the d800 last month), so you might want to grab a different camera bag out of the van with a more expensive body in it first!

    Heard from my dealer today that only limited supplies of the D800E bodies are being delivered now and only to NPS members. I'm not an NPS guy (strictly amateur), so will continue to wait patiently. In the meantime....I look forward to hearing what the NPS members here (Tim!) think of the D800E. :-)

    trying to determine the "return" rate (?) -- hit the 'paid' members club first.

    I hope they aren't building these in 2 full redundant lines, but in 'fork' style, so they can increase throughput of both models.

    Do you know if the MB-D12 will take the new En-EL18 battery (from the D4) . Lots of buzz on the Nikon USA website implies it fits and works but Nikon does t seem to want to confirm it .
