    Vincent... I would have thought you would have gone with the 800E. What was your reasoning for the D800 instead?
  • Blaine 3y

    Fab! thanks for the production details too.

    Curious about your choice to band this beautiful image with black.
    Would you address that?

    Love your body of work!
  • Vincent Versace 3y

    I thought long and hard, but those in the know advised me that the 800e is best suited for the studio environment. I shoot way more in the field run ad gun.
  • Vincent Versace 3y

    I band them because I up load the same files I put on my iPad which are 1700 pixels square to Flickr. I make the image 1600 pixels at the widest dimension . Because the image is a rectangle a square border makes it so that however you turn the iPad the image is always the same size whatever the orientation. No aesthetic reason just workflow ease.

    Hmmm... I'm still debating between the two. I shoot both - studio & on location. In addition to landscapes and such I also do a lot of corporate and commercial work. I'm leaning toward the 'E' but I'm a little concerned about the moire in things like business suites. That's why I don't understand why they are saying the "E" is good for fashion/studio work. I would expect moire to show up more in studio situations.

    Vincent ....thanks for taking the time to explain questions.

    Also love the detail in the dark sky ! ;-)

    I was told light control in the studio was the key to solving the issue. On the other side I have a very good friend who his is a super high-end fashion/beauty photographer in NYC and he said he stopped seeing issues at 32 MP, he shoots 90MP now. I shoot a lot of pattern and a lot of wild fabric when I go in the field. Just did not want to take the chance, I run my Lazarus Effect action and can get any lost detail from the anti-aliasing filter. I have a tutorial on Kelby training if you subscribe or a DVD on how to do it on Acme Educational.

    I hope this helps.
