NIKON D800E

PHOTO GEAR by KRISS on 05 october 2015

I acquired this camera after owning the D800 already and I was expecting a lot of it.
I had tried it before since a friend of mine owns it but I needed more tests.

So the first thing that strikes you is the sound of the shutter which is more metallic than the shutter of the D800.
It does sound more real ! It seems to me it does focus faster than the D800 even if that’s just a tad.

As regards to the quality of the images, everything depends on what you do really.

For example portraits shot with big lenses wide opened will show similar results on both cameras but studio work will definitely be crispier on the D800E, more detailed, the same applies to landscapes and long exposures.

I will come back on the focus because I actually ended up taking the D800 and giving the D800E to Kate for most weddings and when we switched, Kate would often ask me for the D800E (or the D4s but that’s another matter) back because of the faster focus.

Both cameras I believe have the same build and I couldn’t notice any difference between the two of them.
As a matter of fact I got a few particles of dust on my D800 sensor and I had to clean them a few times.
This never happened to the D800E shot under similar conditions.

They both take a little rain (I never dared do heavy rain with either one of them and never had to) and they dry quite quickly.

As of today I know the D810 is out and supposedly a much better camera on many levels but I chose the D4s at that time so I could not really say.

If you are looking to buy either the D800 or D800E and can get either one of them at the same price, I would say go for the D800E, if the difference is bigger, don’t bother and just take the D800 which is an excellent camera.
