See I told you I’m not just a Canon fanboy! Even though I’ve used Canon for most of my life and normally avoid talking to Nikon users (kidding), I’m very impressed with what Nikon have produced with their newest full-frame camera, the Nikon D800.
comes out pumped up with a vengeance especially with the huge huge 36.3 megapixel capability on this camera. See the video below by @digialrev on how it performs in real life. However I must say, it’s not the prettiest filly in the stable….
