In Topic: ikelite D800

thanks a lot for the link Udo, most useful indeed. Now we just need to wait for the uw videos I guess

best wishes,

Today a side by side review was linked in dpreview:


The D800 it's better then the markII and compared to the Mark III they both have plusses and minusses as stated in their conclusions:

'Essentially the output from the D800 and 5D mkIII is very close. I would give it to Nikon for sharpness and the addition of the crop mode. The Canon has a clear win in terms of moire and low light performance. Personally I prefer the control layout and the colour rendition from the Canon (especially under mixed lighting) others may prefer the Nikon.'

i guess underwater we have little to do with moire effects, however, low conditions do apply to the waters where i dive....

best, udo

yeah I looked at the discussion here on the advertisement movie for the camera but its such a big production and its not providing sufficient answers for me.
I just need to see more user videos online to be able to understand the abilities. The shutter, aperture ISO adjustments are always great to have it together with two card slots, HDMI and voice recording. In comparison some of the aspects are even better than MKIII but thats in theory. Canon has been producing good quality video cameras for ages and i so want to believe that Nikon achieved that too. I am sure about the quality should have no problem on that respect.

MKII has found itself in the market with the low budget filming productions all around the world. Nikon had to give an answer to that. My question is : how efficient is their answer???

I guess nobody at this point still really knows, but in the preview of the D800 on dpreview they wrote:

'The D700 didn't have a movie mode (amazing how much has changed in 3, 1/2 years) but the D800 offers one of the most advanced video-shooting specifications around - a clear sign that Nikon has its eye on the semi-pro and enthusiast videographers that Canon captured with the 5D Mark II.'

so i suppose it's pretty good.... i noticed with my D800 that when you film in manual mode you can easily adjust shutterspeed, aperture and ISO, during recording. I'm not a filming guy, but i can imagine that this kind of controls are important to filmers

just saw this ikelite product for 800 $ back compartment which allows using the video function.
thats sneaky, 800 bucks for just pressing the video. i am wondering if there is a way to convert one of the arms inside to press that button :D

Not sure about Ikelite but with Nauticam you'd need a new lever for the video function button or a new back plate.
