I can't put my finger on why this Nikon D800 is so very pleasing to me. Maybe it's the giant prints, the ability to crop again, the uncompressed HDMI video output, or the feel of the thing in my hands.

Whatever makes me feel this way about the camera is the same thing that makes me happy with my Jeep Wrangler and My Gibson Les Paul. When I see them, I smile and feel better about things.

Is this merely pride of ownership? I don't know. I don't remember feeling this way about my D2X and I paid twice the amount for that camera.

I have an inkling that the feeling comes from the fact that I love medium-format photography. I used to carry around a Mamiya RB-67 and several lenses. This camera makes a better image than my wonderful 6x7cm Provia F transparencies. I think that's it! That's why I am so enamored with this camera.

What makes you happy about the Nikon D800?
