Armando, my Training and Counseling officer said RTFM was Read The Fu . . . . rnished Manual. Same meaning.
Bob, people have been buying new cameras and taking horrid photos for years. The D800 will be no different.
I'm the fool who hand-holds cameras at insane low shutter speeds. It would drive you insane. <shrugs> It works for me. A tripod would be better and I carried one for over 10 years. Now I do sports and journalism photography on deployment with the Army. Tripods are a pain. The photos I get beat any P&S and anyone else's DLSR photos from the unit. Brigade HQ has some photographers who can give me a run for the prize.
Bottom line. The D800 can do amazing things. As in the past some will actually do what is required to get all that detail. Most of us will do what is required to get what is acceptable to us. Some will just complain.
