- first hand review on the Nikon D800E.
I’m pleased to say that I have two wonderful parents. They have given me a fantastic start in life;- interest for nature and people. Encouraged me to be curious and see possibilities and not obstacles.
This is really my first hands on review on my new Nikon D800E. However, I’m not the first to do so. In stead, I’ll use this to tell a story. Hey, that is what cameras are made for, isn’t it? Telling storys, creating images, not counting pixels, dynamic range, dwelling over the possisioning of buttons and so on. Tech talking or tell stories… I go for the last bit.
Back to my father. He is a bit like Hagrid, for those of you that reads Harry Potter, in the best meaning. Tough as hell, soft and caring. A very rear gift, given to only the best in my eyes.
I can’t even remember not beeing in the great outdoors with my father. Fishing, hunting, bird watching, picking berries or just camping out for the hell of it. At the age of over 60, he still does. Hunting and fishing has been his whole life, but he does so in a mysterious gentle way. You would think a hunter thinks of only taking lives, filling the freezer and trophy shots. But who other than him, goes out in the woods mid winter cutting down trees for the rabits, if the ground ices and they have a tough time to find food. Or making sure, he doesn’t pick all the blueberries incase a hungry bird desides to drop by. He is a motivator and a inspirator in more than one way…
Back to my brand new camera. I took it out of the box, put in a memory card, got a 24:1,4 and a 85 PC (two of my favourites), and spent a couple of hours with dad at home… and yes. I loved the camera!
… Yes, they do.
What knife to choose.
Nothing that can’t be fixed.
Method to the madness.
