Thanks. The 1Ds MKIII I'm using has both the compact flash and SD card slot, but I've never had any reason to use the second slot. Although, it seems SD cards are much cheaper than the comparable compact flash cards,
"The only area in which the D800 feels even remotely sluggish is its rather pedestrian frame rate which - in FX mode - tops out at 4fps." And in DX it's 5fps. Other than the speed, how does it handle the extremes of dark and light, snow and brown bears? Are you slightly over-exposing for these shots?
On a list of "dream" things, is a mid-eighties "Blue Bird" and a full tank od diesel and a good GPS!
Yes slightly exposed is right
And I have problem with camera too
In middle of cubs standing up camera won't take any more pictures....
So when I reset to factory defaults it corrects that ....but soon I try to change white balance the way I wanted
It quits again ......something is not right ....and I ain't happy
I've not experienced with my Nikon D800e what DWN is saying, and I've already taken thousands of shots with it.
However, I have experienced the very same thing many times with my Canon. I had to detach the lens and attach it again before the camera started to work again. Thankfully no Nikon D800e problems so far whatsoever. Knock on wood!
There was a firmware update for the D800(e) camera in April, although you're right Rich, Nikon do seem to issue far fewer updates than Canon. That may or may not be a good thing, as new features sometimes accompany an update.
My D800e has never skipped a beat. Some minor niggles, then again I used to have some of those with my old Canon system. These days I stay with the system that gives me less headaches :)
FOUND PROBLEM with D800e
And why didn't work properly
Since I use battery pack first time, never really used on other cameras
I have learned that battery must be put in camera and battery pack otherwise will not work properly
I only had it in battery pack...
