SB800 vs. SB900

July 05, 2008

The SB-800 is a large flash. The SB-900 is even bigger, by quite a margin! Check out this animation…

Nikon SB-800 vs. SB-900

Official Nikon D700 Sample Shots

Up to the launch of the D700, we never actually saw any leaked photos taken with the camera. Nikon have now posted their official D700 samples. Click the images below to see the full-sized versions on the Nikon server.

Nikon D700 - Master-stroke or Misguided?

July 02, 2008

Michael Reichmann over at Luminous Landscape has posted a very interesting article exploring Nikon’s strategy concerning the D700, and what it means depending on how Canon’s much-rumoured 5D replacement turns out.

For Nikon to enter this arena so soon (just over a half year) after shipping its first full frame Pro offering, and by doing so with a camera which offers all of the image quality and almost all of the features of the D3, at some two thousand dollars less, is either a master-stroke or misguided. At this time I can’t quite figure out which it is, but for photographers it’s a big win, and ultimately that’s what counts the most.

Well worth a read.

More on the SB-900

July 02, 2008

Although most of the focus on Nikon’s recent announcements has been squarely on the D700, they also announced something that’s of a lot of interest to many strobist-types: the SB-900 flash unit.

Joe McNally has had a pair of these for a couple of weeks now, and has written up his experiences in his usual entertaining fashion.

Along comes the 900. I’ve had two for a few weeks now, and the unit is, well, smooth. What can I say? Ed Fasano, a General Manager at Nikon, asked me what I thought after handling it, and I told him, “Well, if the SB800 is a real nice Chevy, this baby’s a Cadillac.”

Nikon D700 information round-up

July 01, 2008

So it’s official - the Nikon D700 exists. You’ll know the specifications by now, so here’s a run-down of the latest news from the internets:

Well - it’s real! D700 details.

July 01, 2008

It’s the first of July here in Europe, and the news is coming out before the embargo is officially lifted.

It’s everything we expected - The D3’s sensor in a smaller (but not small) body. Throw in a built-in flash and a sensor cleaning system, and there’s the D700. Nice!

Yes, it has Hi-ISO 2 (ISO 25,600), 14-bit RAW, 1/250s flash sync speed, the fantastic 3″ LCD, and uses the EN-EL3e battery.

Full updated specs to come in the morning.

Here’s a shot of the new SB-900 too:

The first D700 spy shot?

June 25, 2008

Spotted on a Chinese camera site:

The image looks quite real; even though that could be a D70 strap, the terminal covers and prism look about right. It’s also possible that the d700 is currently being produced in China, so it would make sense that this is where the images are leaking from. Time will tell!
