Thanks for sharing.
Lewis Perkins, when I grow up I wanna be just like you. Great job on the color management! Are you doing anything special there? Expodisc? Gray Card? Please don't tell me AWB! frown

The D800 is really good on colors out of the camera.
I am limited on what corrections I can ethically make in photojournalism. Yeas some of us still have ethics.

Color correction I do in photoshop curves numerically. By using the numbers in the info block to read the color temperature of a neutral color on the photo I find one within a range and that is not more than 10 points different between R G B. then I zero out on that color, and it corrects everything.

That reads like voodoo but it takes me about a minute per photo to do, and I could show it to you in five minutes. Gannett once trained their photographers to correct like that. I dont know if they still do.

You might have seen this one on the news.

A Humvee from a C-17 fell short into a rural area in Harnett County during a routine heavy drop exercise. There were no injuries nor damage to residential property.
Thanks to all those who worked with us to recover the equipment.
Watch the video for on the scene coverage

He’s Dead Jim.


After 6 years and about 200,000 shutter actuations, the D800 has given up.
This was one of the last frames.

I have taken it up in C-130 cargo aircraft and Blackhawk helicopters, it has been slightly dunked in the Atlantic, several rivers and lakes. Water sprayed while in boats at Special Forces water jumps, or on charity event fishing boats on Jordan Lake.Been out in three hurricanes,and sandblasted by prop wash. It has been rattled while standing near a firing 155mm Howitzer, 105mm Howitzer, live fire ranges, Carl Gustavs, and 1600 pounds of C4 plastic explosive. Walked for miles and miles, dropped a few times, photographed countless sporting events and cute little kids.
It gave it’s all.

Nikon you build a good camera.

Sorry to hear the final curtain went down (pardon the pun) on your D800. Looks like you resisted the pull to go Sony. How's the D810 working out? Canon just d/c'd support for my 1D MkIV so I'm doubling down on trying to get a back up (don't need FF for everything). Did go through the mental process of switching to Sony (and Fuji) though.

The 800 was mine, the 810 belongs to the paper. I picked it up when the 800 died to go along with the D4.
I will have to buy another camera for myself. I still have not ruled out fixing the 800. Finances being what they are and the real threat that I may be out of work in a few weeks are keeping me reeled in.
If and when I start over with camera buying I may just jump into the mirrorless world.
