Dan,

Thanks a lot for the help.

I will try this out at some point in the future. For the moment, I am still learning how to use the D800. I've been reading Thom Hogan's D800 guide, and trying some things out. I've only had the camera for a week or so.

Let me explain what I intend. I have been doing view camera photography for many years, in 4 x 5 since about 2002. It is a bit difficult to lug my 4 x 5 gear around at my age, so I've been looking for alternatives. It seems as if the D800 will allow me to produce images I can print at 16 x 20 without seeing much difference compared to scanning 4 x 5 negatives on an Epson V700. I will miss most movements, but tilts and swings are probably not so necessary in FX format because of the greater depth of field. I plan to use live view to compose and trim to shift in the long dimension. But there may be occasions when I need a somewhat larger image to look at when composing. So using a smartphone would be a help.
