Walk in New York with the Nikon D800 Version uncalibrated.

All are in the title or almost, I published a version of my little uncalibrated assembly to satisfy the curious … I asked my team to play with images and find me a look … I was happy with the result but I understand that some claim untreated version to better reflect the quality of the source. I worked on a fairly neutral profile with the contrast and saturation reduced almost to a minimum.


Nikon D800 First contacts, New York mars 2012

D800 Diner Shot, A treat in this picture D800

After a few days in New York a brand new D800 hands here are my impressions. We were a good sixty in New York 3 days to test the brand new race of Nikon. It must be said that the D800 has the expected, Many people have dreamed and hoped that would have a response on the part of Nikon to Canon 5D MKII video. This is now done, it is, there and I played with. 2 jours la main rivée ou presque sur le boitier mais au final c’était trop peu pour le tester vraiment. Je me suis un peu fait avoir et je manque d’outils performants emmené sur place lors de ce voyage c’est fait cruellement ressentir pour pouvoir vous donner des conclusions définitives. I left “too light” with a small macbook air 11″ which does not allow me to view the video image of the D800 with sufficient accuracy to draw conclusions, you will have to wait a few minutes this … Our program was responsible, too may be because the organization has forgotten that we had time to do our tests, it is not only to walk and make images must also be able to dissect; the work, I would say the grind …

Sets and situations were chained on the run and even if everything was perfectly organized, a bit more time would have allowed me to go a little further and be more efficient in the handling of this case. On 2 days (the first day we traveled and I got the box in the evening) we made the chopper, of vessel, we attended a performance of Blue Man Group, a boxing workout, an incredible place with graffiti in Brooklin, not forgetting the super class meals and various transfers / Bus rides in the Big Apple. The City of New York is very photogenic and I loved it, I took great pleasure in taking pictures and videos. For starters let's talk about the subject, it is class, it's cozy, the coating is very nice and feel is very good. Buttons and other controls are well positioned and the interface is quite effective. A beautiful beast in short ! Concerning the usability disappointed I am by cons, the guys who designed the tree of these menus are not often use this box. It has never been the highlight of Nikon but there, it borders on anything … Small example, the ability to choose the useful size of the sensor (the famous drop factor) in video mode “FX” or “DX” is Full Frame and APS-C is not accessible when live view mode is activated, we must return to camera mode and enter a maze of menus … yuck ! The pleasure of this feature is highly malignant spoiled …

What a pity ! In picture you can program a feature button but it is inactive in video. We can reassure a simple firmware change could put things in place, has noted that we have on the D4 3 drop sizes and 2 only on the D800. At first the people at Nikon Japan is present on site took note of our comments and trace information for possible future firmware changes.

In terms of ergonomics I confess that I always have more and more trouble with these DSLR that do not offer truly effective in sight video, and on this side there is no improvement, no swivel LCD and referred reflex is of course blind when you're in video. The screen is good but it is certainly uncomfortable as much as a 5D or other Photocam lacks electronic viewfinder. Despite its good definition and contrast it is unthinkable to point accurately all that no assistance is provided, a mode “peaking” would be welcome as well as other assistance in shooting.

The auto focus is slow but it works it's already a good point. I suggested an LCD hood and more, top notch it would be a system or the optical viewfinder would be replaceable by an electronic module for video … But a small viewfinder that grefferait on the accessory shoe would be a real plus. The image produced is very interesting video, even if the compression is quite limiting. When used with an external recorder it is clear that it will be very good but one thing is really annoying, to prevent whatever, HDMI output edge does not switch between 1080i 59,94 to a mode 720 see 480 … When one wants to have the recording output can not be recorded in H.264 on the map simultaneously, and the mere presence of an SD or CF is change the HDMI output at 720p. La bêtise c’est que quand on veut utiliser un viseur comme l’EVF Zacuto ou un Cineroïd par exemple ben on a un truc qui est impraticable … Again it's a small detail that spoils the party.

I fell back on a magnifier for any degree of accuracy but I'm not a fan either. The magnification of Z Finder is too important example we see the pixels and it still lacks precision to point correctly given the size of the sensor and its 36 Million pixels ! Yet even when I practice a few years now photocams … or I aged ?

Aliasing side I did not see things too ugly, but there are a lot of moire (look at the images of skyscrapers on the video) and the rolling shutter is still present but now we know we have to do with these defects … Pour revenir à la compression, 24mb / s is not honorable enough engineers. While it is fairly well managed and that it's still good, why impose such a limitation ? The D800 records in H.264 encapsulated in QuickTime, why is any limitation on time or memory cards support high flow rates ..? The AVC HD is limiting side flows to the QuikTime but there are ways to do something else. Canon offers the 40MB / s and it is already critical with this 4:2:0 8 bits … The requirement of moving image makers is as important as photographers, the NEF 14 bit is killer … why not go to a better quality video ? Que d’autres marques qui ont des logiques de gamme soient obligés de sortir des produits “qualitatively worse” not to cannibalize sales of the more expensive cameras I can understand, but Nikon does not make video cameras … or they will announce a 4K camera ? I do not get it … J’ai noté des artefacts et autre macroblocs assez gênants dans les noirs et dans les aplats en général. So yes there is the HDMI Clean, but even if it is important to consider the offer must be the fact that most of us, will not use the recorder to issues of practicality … When you know that the GH2 hacked saves the H.264 intra picture until 178mb / s you wonder why manufacturers leave us no choice. I wanted to try the photo as much as the video, I confess that 36 MP intrigued me, the dramatic increase in resolution has often been synonymous with problems in high sensitivities. On this point there Nikon is doing very well, it is not free from defects, swished it but it's not ugly, Nearby, the grain is even more sexy.En picture is better managed than in video, but in one case as in the other I found the sound very nice, enough film.


You will say that I criticize a lot, While, but it is to advance the Schmilblick, because even if this case has some teething problems, I am delighted that Nikon has finally proposed a real challenger to the 5D. Unfortunately if the master standard to beat was the MKII to develop this product, 5D MKIII is the output and offers interesting arguments especially in terms of codec. Otherwise next picture is a small bomb, the 36MP are not disadvantageous to the picture in terms of sensitivity was very interesting things up 6400 See more by iso against the only downside is the storage and Postprod. But we can not reproach at this level, it is a choice to make as 36mp is a choice to make 4K or 5K for filming digital cinema … In any case I find NEF files (Nikon RAW le) incredibly good in terms of dynamics this is pretty terrible, a pleasure !

In conclusion, yes I complain because this case could have been awesome and super innovative and he is content to respond to those who have a range of Nikon optics and which have not been tempted to go over to the red, I think for them it'll be a relief … Nikon's will to go tickle the filmmakers is well stated and I am delighted to know they fit into the race but I am a bit disappointed it's true. Nevertheless the image produced by the D800 is really good, it is very cinematic, it goes something interesting in the texture of an image can be more organic side ? I really enjoyed the images produced even if the ergonomics remains to refine. Again and to conclude this is just my point of view, and it is my business and maybe I set the bar too high …? By dint of using these tools I feel like they progress, I still enjoy making images that they are made with GH2 or RED Epic, this is not the tool which is the most important, but what is actually. Nevertheless we must choose one and the selection criteria are not for everyone the same. I have the chance to have fun with all that is almost done but I also have personal or professional choices based on criteria that are not the same as you who reads these lines. The D800 is a beautiful box, deserving and I am disappointed because I expected a crazy thing, and it is simply good.

This film has no claim, it's just a ride, A summary of our activities during these 2 day in NYC. I told Thibaut and Axelle care to play with images to calibrate and make them look …

And thank you to Mary's 5ptz & meventusa ainsi qu’a Cocoa Sarai la talentueuse chanteuse …


Nikon 48h challenge New York avec le D800

The program is announced live the incredible standard hotel in the heart of the Big Apple …
We will make images in Helicopter and boat is going to peel the loaves … Since yesterday there's wind here and it's nice but quail, beautiful.
Almost 75 which invited people here 5 French are here to test the d800 which I got a copy last night.
The object is well built and it will take some getting used to the ergonomics because I have no usual with Nikon ergonomics, My last Nikon was an F801 that dates back to early 90 😉 je l’ai aimé et c’est sans aucun doute celui avec lequel j’ai passé le plus de temps.
I will try to test things in a Max shortest time …
Testimony of the director of Joy Ride, Sandro Miller who made the lovely short film with the bike I just saw on the big screen.

There is nothing to say it's beautiful ! The most amazing thing is that they say they have not used for external recorder, So they would have turned on the cards with the internal codec I remind you is encapsulated in Quicktime H264 at a rate of 24mb / s

First day with the D800 is a fine case, well born and the image quality as pictured in the video seems to be an appointment. I would make you a more detailed account of the worst Thursday.

Nikon Trip to New York … & more …

It is not without some emotion that I take off tomorrow for the Big Apple to test the new Nikon D800 and its big brother D4. Say that some years ago when I created this blog I wondered how I could get in touch with builders to try their new …

  • Berlin in in November 2011 for the presentation of the European C300 Canon
  • and finally I am part of 40 Nikon has invited people to go try the new D800 and D4 … Not only is it great to be able to test these new cameras in 3d but this is my first trip to New York and I'm excited like a chip …

I'll try to make regular reports live from the big city, I then took a few days off to have a little fun in the USA and I take this opportunity to make images and show them to you … I then chained to the NAB in Las Vegas, from 13 April with a little surprise …

By I try to go against Light, côté editing ce sera un simple macbook air 11″ with FinalCut Pro X and LightRoom 4 and a disk Lacie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 1to.

Nikon D5100 approaching ..?

It's not quite official, but it seems that the brand Yellow decided to launch a new model of reflective, the D5100 and D3100 after the D7000 left end 2010. It seems to address directly the Canon 60D with its angle LCD.

The D5100 is also equipped with a function with a high sensitivity mode 102400 big !


  • Video HD 1080p30
  • 16.2MP sensor
  • New Feature HDR
  • Special effects on the image in video (color selection, Miniature Effect, etc.)
  • 2 processeurs EXPEED
  • ISO range 100-6400
  • micro stereo
  • Raffale 4 i / s
  • Silent shutter mode
  • Adjustable LCD

    Surprise Nikon would come out a priori as a stereo microphone for these Photocam.

    I hope that the mistakes of D7000 with respect to including an inability to change the aperture settings when recording video will be corrected launched ? I also hope that 30p will not be as fixed ?! How do you one of these manufacturers say that the lives of budding filmmakers and video artists as written in the pro 24, 25 or 30 i / s but must give us the ability to choose ourselves ! The 30p is useless if you want to make images for television in Europe and even make a DVD for my grandmother with a 30p source, it can not read ! C’est pourtant pas compliqué ? one ?

    'm Saying information from Nikon Romania ( a little late for an April Fool but ..? )

    filtrées par Nikon Rumors : http://nikonrumors.com/#ixzz1Iane5pCC

    The small user feedback on what I had done during the handling of the D7000 the month of December 2010.



    Nikon D7000, grip …

    First know that it is with great pleasure that I received there is little a phone call from Nikon that I proposed to test the new guy. A few days after a first contact friendly, here I am delivered from the D7000.

    The handling of this new case is very nice, He exudes strength and the grip is excellent. We feel we have a tough tool in the hands. Side orders this is the same, the positioning of buttons is rather well thought out and their use appears to be fairly easy. The viewfinder is nice and the display of the grid and Colima superimposed AF gives him a small side “for”. If we did a little tour of it soon realized that the traditional Compact Flash port given way to 2 slots SDXC, the risk of offending those with lots of CF cards. For my part I take my hat off to notte good idea to have added the functionality of recording two ways raid 1 (mirror) on 2 cards, This allows you to add security but also to deliver faster customer hurry. You can also save the raw example of a map of the JPEG on the other, bravo !

    On the software side, we have already found that Nikon is moving in the right direction by offering an intuitive interface, while allowing to go very far in the possibilities of customization is always full and the informed user will be filled.

    So I received the kit D7000 version of the 18/105 and a 50mm f:1,4. I must say that the plastic frame of the zoom 18/105 may leave a bitter taste to all aficionados of the brand yellow, it can be tough even if it is also doubtful but it's not very serious and you saw that the price you pay … bof ! When was 50mm f:1,4 is a gem !

    Note that Nikon changed its range since the D7000 replaces the D90, but eyeing a few on the market provided with expert D300s, get there a successor or should it take with the D7000 as a case supposed to meet customers D90 and D300 ?

    I will not dwell too much on the photo part is excellent and has been commented many times in the press and on internet. So I'll focus on the video portion. I await the D7000 as a true messiah, Nikon broke new ground as the first drawing with the D90 the first DSLR offering video on the market in October 2008, as many people like me were disappointed by the feature that leaves a sense of unfinished business.

    LiveView mode switches from any mode video picture. Rather clever but would rather keep a video mode with specific settings from. Other flat, no 1080p25 ?! but what happens now in the minds of those who design these products ? You did not realize that professionals had a passion for your case to use it in production for television ? In Europe must be the liver 25 i / s !!!

    The 24p is great for film, but this is not the will of all to finish in the dining room ! After Panasonic and Aber of GH2 that fate as 1080p24 or 1080i50 of it continues along the same lines … I do not get it, and it put me in a foul mood !

    After the rant, the video portion of the D7000 is no doubt that Nikon has done better since the beginning ! The launch of D90 at the time, they had opted for a Motion JPEG codec of another time and a resolution in Half tint (720p24 only !). D7000 finally meets today with our expectations with a more modern codec. Nikon has made the same choice technique Canon, a QuickTime H.264, but not at the same rate. The player QTimer X my machine shows a flow 25 mb / s. The quality of the signal processing is rather good, can grow up 1600 iso without much concern, noise is not too annoying, but we left wanting if we compare with the photo mode. A picture is absolutely amazing, Sony Exmor sensor that, I recall that is the same as in the Alpha 55 Sony and Pentax K5 combined with the know-how and processing power of the processor makes prowess Nikon Photo, video we are not at the top but it's well and progress should be welcomed. The other thing I have to acknowledge is that the AF can be used in video mode, there or Nikon also offers a super efficient autofocus camera they were able to do something very corect video. Side the large possibility of not setting and still no headphone jack (Photocam any on the market today has this feature, one wonders why ? So next audio settings, we have the right to 3 levels of sensitivity or an automatic gain, and a microphone jack to record in stereo.

    Next screen is good but why not about the direction as do more and more manufacturers ? It's still handy.

    Another thing that annoys, exposure settings are not changed during that run, and f-stop wheel is silent when you're in live view, a peak, must quit the LiveView to vary the f-stop when you are in manual ! I hope this will be fixed soon in a firmware update.

    My conclusion is that the K5 as part of Pentax camera is pretty good, next video is not as bad as the K5 but of course it is not on top of what we expect from a brand like Nikon. The 7D Canon came out a year ago and the update of the 5D mkII has set the bar a little high probably ? I did not think it would be so hard to meet the concurrency with a Canon product at least equal to what already exists in red. As you can see so it's a little disappointing, Not that this is not good, progress is notable but I expected a real little slap and there is still some way to go. Have to wait over the D700 and see what the yellow mark is going to lay full frame.

    I made some pictures with the D7000, miles excuse is not good but the guy is sick 40 fever, and must make the case for Nikon. You will see that it is rather well until 1600 iso but this little collage is not yet super yavait things to do in Lyon with the Festival of Lights this week.
