"RE: D800 report - Ming Thein"

I really like his photography. His Monet water lilies from Japan are very nice. I love his street stuff.

I didn't realize the D600 fixed the LiveView issue for studio photographers. Would like to know more. ""If you shoot manual exposure, live view mode always shows you a preview of the actual exposure. Guess what this means if you’ve got things set up for a studio strobe exposure with zero ambient: a black frame! You’ll have to toggle back and forth between P and M modes to focus, which wastes time and is unnecessary – especially since they fixed this on the D600. I hope it’s something that gets addressed in a future firmware update. Or, at least give us an option…

I don't get why people tout Power Aperture - it doesn't work whilst I am recording. It works before hitting record and after stopping recording. Did Nikon forget something here or I am continuing to miss something?

I didn't agree with his next blurb down, about dials and controls at all. Or his last bit, how can one not bond with this camera!!!!

Best regards, SteveK
