Very happy with my purchase of Nikon S6800, easy to use, lightweight, large screen size, price, and clearness of photos.
After using Nikon for the past +>25 years and having owned 6 of their best in that time, including recently the D90. This surpasses all before it. High praise that is well deserved.
Very Happy with it. It's Almost Perfect, can't really fault this at all !
This is such an incredible camera that I recommend everyone should get if they are beginner or otherwise! Easy to use, great image quality and you feel like a pro! Must purchase
The Nikon D750 is an absolutely fantastic camera with exceptional performance. I have had 3 DX DSLRs in the past, last one being the D7000, and while it works well, I found critical focus was a bit hit and miss with wider apertures. Viewfinder only good for f4, had to rely on AF with mixed results or slow live view for anything wider.
I held off buying the D600 when it came out, since I AF was the same as the D7000. Was tempted to go for D810, but 36MP RAW files really slow my PC to a crawl. Main advantage is cropping, but I think D750 better for noise and 2/3 the price.
The D750 is the first camera I have used where MF at f1.4 is easy and the AF is absolutely and consistently precise. The AF doesn't disappoint even when light is low.
Low ISO noise and detail is also amazing, leaves the D7000 far behind. You really don't need VR now.
I haven't tried sports or continuous focus yet so can't comment, but a faster frame rate, bigger buffer and 4K video would of made this my dream camera. Also although it's the smallest of the Full Frame DSLRs, I'm hoping Nikon will go mirrorless in future for the larger sensors.
Tilt screen on a serious camera is a great addition, too bad it's not touch screen focus as well. Also finally got Wifi, but still GPS through expensive dongle.
The locking button on the mode dial is a simple but great design improvement. My D7000 mode dial had a nasty habit of turning when walking around.
Never had a Nikon that wasn't sturdy, so build quality is their usual high standard.
I avoided D700 no Video,
D800/D800E/D810 too bulky and expensive,
D600, D610 second rate AF,
DF no video.
Finally Nikon made the DSLR I was waiting for and while lacking a few features I would of liked, the features it has it does exceptionally well.
Also thanks to Teds for their service and competitive price. Was planning to wait 6 months before purchasing and hoping the price would drop, but didn't have to wait in the end.
Glynn explained everything in simple easy steps. I started the day a total beginner. But by the end of the day am happy to go from A+ "average" to M for "magnificent"!
I would highly recommend this course to everyone!
Compact, covers full range of cards, USB 3 is fast and reliable. Sits well on desk and the vertical position makes for ease of use. Looks great too. Good price, practical bit of kit.
I had a great time thank you, the weekend was a great photo experience for me, giving me more confidence handling my camera, especially histograms, I had read about using histograms, but having first hand tuition on it made them easier to understand.
I would recommend one of your trips to anyone interested in going further with their photography, the on hand lesson was most helpful.
I want to thank you for a fabulous weekend get away. Sue and I both enjoyed every minute from the time we arrived at Lilydale Airport on Friday to our return on Sunday. Johnno is a wonderful pilot and made us all feel very comfortable.
We both learned a lot about photography in such a short time. I now feel much more in control of my camera.
The accommodation was as comfortable as the food was delicious and we felt as though we had covered most of the island and saw the best it has to offer thanks to your preparation and the good driving by Craig Robinson from Ted’s.
I have yet to edit the many RAW photos I took, however with Sue’s jpegs and mine we have some marvellous new photos. I have set my screen saver to the Flinders Island file and when it comes on I don’t want to touch the keyboard!
We look forward to joining you on another trip in the future.
This is a great lens and good value for money. No it is not as good as a Canon 600mm f4 lens but it doesnt cost over $10k either. The beauty of this lens is that it gives you up to a 600mm equivalent focal length in a lens you can easily carry and afford.
Olympus IS also makes handholding a reasonable proposition, which is out out of the question with a FF 600 mm telephoto lens.
With good technique image quality will be easily sufficient for a good quality A3 print and so should satisfy most users. It is not a lens for dim light however.
I have used this lens now for a few weeks and have not taken it of my camera.
The focal lenght of 17 to 70mm suits me fine and the macro feature is very good.
All in all a great lens . The good price enhaces this even more.
