A few weeks ago I got the Nikon D800 and immediately took it out for a spin. After visiting some friends in Culver City I decided to hike up to the top of the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, where I was lucky to find Hernan and his daughter Satya flying a kite high over the city’s distant skyline. Despite Satya’s apparent disinterest at this moment, she was actually untangling the kite string, which you can see quite clearly if you zoom in on the massive 36mp file this thing produces. Since then I’ve also had the chance to use the camera’s video features. No fooling around, my first use was helping my friends shoot a documentary film on up-and-coming Olympic swimming star, Missy Franklin. The film’s trailer can be seen here and is due out sometime in the next year. I’ll eventually cobble together some footage from that to share, but will hopefully have some more video opportunities in the meantime. So far I’m loving it! Anyone wanna buy a Nikon D3?
