Here’s she is--- the first shot from the new D800e! Literally this is the first frame I shot with her. All I can say is I am supremely impressed by this camera so far. The dynamic range is eye popping as I can pull scenes together from one exposure that used to require two or more, and the shadows at normal ISO (100 through 800) are super clean, making it easy to bring out details without concern for introducing noise. Can’t wait to see how she performs over the summer!
Have to give a big thanks to Justin Reznick who thought of me when a friend of his, Jim Newkirk, had the great misfortune of seeing not one, but two D800e’s show up at his house on the same day last week. I was able to meet up with Jim and we spent a long, full day romping through the Gorge shooting many of its classic scenes.
