Nikon D810 Shooter’s Report Part I: The quest for sunshine and razor-sharp detail


posted Monday, August 25, 2014 at 6:02 PM EDT


Last week, we posted a big selection of real-world sample photos -- today, our Nikon D810 review takes another step forwards with the addition of my first Shooter's Report section. After days of uncooperative weather, when the sun peeked out briefly I shot all manner of subjects around downtown Knoxville, Tennessee, in the quest for ultimate resolution.

So what am I thinking of the Nikon D810, thus far? You'll want to read my Shooter's Report for the full story, but I don't think it would be too much of a spoiler to say that I'm greatly enjoying my time with this detail-hungry DSLR. It captures oodles of detail, and image quality in general is great. I've found a few minor concerns that you may want to bear in mind while considering your purchase, but nothing hugely significant -- and more than ever, I'm looking forward to shooting some more, and filing my next report.


There is going to be a slight delay before that can happen, though, as our review sample of the D810 is affected by a recently-announced service advisory. Even though we've not personally seen any issues as yet, we're arranging service so that we can be sure of a truly representative result.

Watch this space for part II just as soon as we can manage, and in the meantime, read Part I of my Nikon D810 Shooter's Report now!
