In Topic: Any feedback on Nikon D7200 yet?

10 November 2015 - 11:12 AM

D7200 is an excellent camera. Fantastic image quality and better AF than a D800. 


However Thom Hogan thinks the D400 might finally appear in the first half of next year. I am sure I written that most years since 2009!






thx Alex


LOL...as an avid follower of Thom Hogan, I have also seen that "the world will end on..." prediction for the D400 year after year. It could be someone at Nikon is "punking" Thom. LOL


I have used a rental D7200 on the surface for wild life photography in Yellowstone and was very pleased with the focus speed and the image quality and improved hi ISO performance. It is lighter and smaller.  Didn't fit my hands quite as nicely as my D300 and I missed some of the dedicated buttons.....only a few of those are issues once in a housing. 

In Topic: Your Favourite/Best Image of 2014

Thanks for the pics everyone


Though far from my normal NC haunts, this is my favorite.


At San Benedicto Island in the Revillagigedos Archipelago. At approximately 6:30 in the morning, first panga on site at "The Boiler", with only me, the dive master and another diver on board - the remainder of our team decided to sleep in.  I watched as this group of 6 dolphins came together from their separate activities, gathered in the distance, and seemingly make a conscious decision to come see just what the heck I was. They approached, swimming tantalizingly slow, straight towards me. Heart pounding, I kept praying, "Please keep coming! Closer! Stay together! Closer! Keep coming!" I literally had to "bow up" to get out of their way, as they passed as it seemed they were going to swim right through my chest. I likely could have wrapped my arms around several of them. Made the trip.

I think that the D7100 is the best all-round underwater camera on the market. Alex

HI Alex or anyone


was wondering if the Nikon 10.5mm FE image quality holds up going from 12MP (my d300) to the 24MP of the d7100?


thx in advance
