My wife and I stopped into our camera store last Saturday to pick up a box of Epson 22x17 inch printer paper. On the way out, she said she wanted to look at new point and shoot pocket sized cameras.

Long story short, we left with a new Nikon Coolpix S9300 for her, and a new Nikon D800E for me. I've been shooting with a D3 and D3X for several years now and knew it would just be a question of time before NAS struck. I made it in time for the $200 instant rebate.

I was looking for a quick test of my initial settings. The images below are one of three bears carved into the trunk of a tall pine tree that died a year ago. The chain saw artist requested that I provide an eleven foot high trunk to work with. Three days after he started, it was finished. Then he blackened the nose and claws with a propane torch, and sprayed it top to bottom with three coats of boiled linseed oil over the next couple of days.

The top image is full-frame, and the bottom is a 100% crop from it. Notice the little fine hair on the left side of the bear's nose (camera right), and the little fine cracks in the front of his nose. The detail just keeps coming ... and coming ...

Now, on to more serious testing. Thanks for dropping in.

D800E: Hand-held, 1/125 sec, ISO = 100, Manual mode
Nikkor 24-120 mm F/4.0 at 85 mm and F/8.0
Uncompressed RAW, 14 bit color depth
Serial Number: 30087XX
