quote: Mr. $700 FF Camera.
quote: Do you really have to be a ass, or can you also react normal?
quote: You shot your mouth off without knowing what you're talking about. You were wrong, and were an ass about it.
quote: Vast majority of amateurs who buy camera at this price point belong to one percentile
quote: Actually i do know a lot about about photography and cameras, and even own a D800
quote: Which class was it that taught you economics, engineering, and integrated circuits?
quote: Why because it is a pro product, they can now easily make a FF $700 camera, but that would cut heavy in there margins they have now on there FF line .
quote: WHAT, exactly, is your complaint about the D810?
quote: What i say is that in +99% of the time, a four times cheaper D5300 is just as good.
quote: A lot of Prosumers that buy this camera actually dont need this camera, and most of them would be just as good of with a $500 camera.
quote: Unlike wit PC gaming, ware faster hardware and more pixels give's you a edge, or a faster faster car lets you get faster from A to B (if you ignore tickets).
quote: A better camera dose not let you take better pictures, just like amateur with $10.000 sword, can not win against a master swordsman holding a $2 piece of rebar.
quote: But i am glad all those Prosumer idiots are out there, they pay for all the cool R&D, that later also gets in to the cheaper models.
quote: 'master swordsman' thing
quote: the camera dose about 2~3 stops better
quote: No, what i saying is that a real talented photographer will take more on average better pictures, then most properly you and certainly me with our D800's.
quote: And that even all the training and equipment only counts for a small part, compared to talented people.
quote: And that you cant buy your way in to be a better photographer.
quote: Right, training doesn't teach you photography so much as it does how to operate a camera and how various settings and lenses affect the end result.
quote: you can sell the body and lenses for 70-80% of what you paid for it (if you bought new). If you buy it used you can usually recoup almost all of your money if you sell the equipment.
quote: Actually 95% of the training i got at school was not about how to use the camera, but how to control your surroundings and the lighting of it.
quote: Me personally, i properly buy a D620 or so, if it start to support 4K filming, as that is one of the main things i really like with my D800, and there is no comparison with normal consumer video camera's, that a photo lens brings to the table.
quote: I just really not looking forward to fork out a other $4k for the body and underwaterhousing.
