Here is a quick test I did in my yard using the 1080p/24 setting on the D800 (FX mode). Focus pull and zoom tracking done by hand since I have no video gear yet!
Finally got the new Nikon D800 from the great folks over at PCNation. Pearl Conley somehow got this unit delivered to me within 7 business days after having been on Adorama’s preorder list for 78 days. Needless to say that order was canceled.
I don’t hesitate recommending PCNation and especially Pearl for any of your camera or accessory needs! They are a Nikon Authorized Dealer and a reputable shop run by friendly and honest people.
Here are just a few of the first frames I shot after unpacking the camera and getting some basic options set in the menus.
On March 29, we traveled to South Beach, Miami, FL with a group of 10 to celebrate Andrew & Elena’s upcoming wedding with a coed bachelor/bachelorette party. It was the perfect three-day weekend and included all the staples — lounging by the pool, great food, the beach, a few extraordinary nightclubs, and the best weekend-long permabuzz I have ever achieved. I can’t thank everyone enough for making the trip down and being such a kick-ass group, and especially Andrew & Elena for being such a fearless and fun pair and coming up with the idea of a “pre-bachelor and bachelorette party coed bach/bach weekend vacation”. It was a perfect trip and I’m sad it’s over, but at least we have the regular parties to look forward to now!
Special thanks to all others who joined us, including Lisa, Colleen, Laura, Wally, Aaron, Jason, and Angela.
Extra thanks to the Surfcomber Hotel for not kicking us out and simply giving us unlimited warnings! We weren’t that bad, were we?

First stop – Andrew & Elena’s condo for a lot of Guinness and some tasty snacks. After a few hours we headed over to Emmit’s Irish Pub for some green beer, then Miller’s Pub for dinner. We hit Exchequer right down the block for a few more, then met up with more friends at RPM as the night wound down. It was a beautiful day in Chicago!
