Could the waters be any more muddy, Elmer?

 

You reckon a topside comparison (D500/D800) would be the same?

Tim,

 

You should be able to see any difference in the photos between the two bodies with the settings, lens being the same.

Totally agree, Elmer. Doing that underwater would, wait, likely involve me buying a housing for the D500......

Oh the temptation, the temptation.

Tim,

 

I think if you just do it on land, that should be good enough.  Just rent or borrow a D500 to compare.

 

To muddy the waters more, Nikon is coming out with a replacement for the D810, rumored to be 42 mp with D5 focusing

Tim,

 

I think the only way to compare the D500 vs the D800 is to take the same exposure of the same subject with both using the same lens.

Then process their photos the same way and see if you can see a difference.

Tim,

 

So the question is, does the D500 have the same WOW factor as the D800 or D810 photos?

 

Does the D500 20.9 mp photo equal or surpass D800, D810 36 mp photo in overall quality ?

In Topic: Poor View through Viewfinder

19 May 2017 - 02:07 PM

Changing viewfinders is housing dependent. In other words, some housing allow changing viewfinders and others do not.

In those that allow changing from the standard viewfinder to magnifying viewfinders it is usually a screw in nut, C clip or washer that holds the viewfinder in place. On some housing like Nauticam the rear window will need to be changed.  

Many housing allow a different manufactures viewfinder to be fitted with an adaptor.

 

In regards to using live view, the focus is slower, uses more battery, the time of shutter release is longer too.

Using your viewfinder negates the slow focus and delayed shutter release
