TRANSCRIPT:Here are a few thoughts on the Nikon D4 versus the Nikon D800. I'm John Harrington. We really like the Nikon D4, but truth be told, we really like the Nikon D800 as well. We actually got the D4 first and then decided well we'll get the D800 as well. We think that both cameras are two different tools that need to be in the same tool chest. If you need that extra megapixel and you're shooting under a controlled environment and you don't have to go up to those crazy high ISOs that the D4 can go to, the D800 is a great tool. We use it for magazine covers when were doing a lot of work with magazines. When we're trying to do advertising work, or were shooting tethered straight into the computer. A D800 as a great camera, but the D4 is awesome. We do not use D4 using, you know, continuous high you know maximum shutter frames per second, we're not that type of photographer, but the D4 is great. The file size is awesome the high ISO is just incredible. So as we're sitting here saying D4 vs D800 it really is both.

I made the choice last month between the 800 and the 4, I had problems paying the extra money for the 4. But the main reason that I chose the 800 is because of availability. I am a working pro, i use a 700 as a back up, If anything happens to my main camera I can get a replacement same day at nearly any corner camera store. So for me the availability is the reason for the move to the 800.

Best wishes

That's right: D800 very good for studio (where high resolution is important) and D4 is good in the field. Both cameras are great! And I'm happy that Nikon and Canon issued D600 and 6D: it is now possible to have a full-frame ticket for only about 2000 bucks!
