    macrumors 601


    Sold the D7000+15-55 f/2.8 and got the D700. She has arrived. And she's a beast to hold.


    Only 233 shutter slaps, now 234...

    Full-frame is where the party is.

    I hope to help someone else in the world go full frame soon (that's if my 5D sells on Evilbay).

    Actually I've gone in the opposite direction with a 1.3 cropped body (1d Mark II), nice to have both though.

    Congrats! I'll be getting one soon too :)

    Also, what app did you use to get the shutter count?
  4. macrumors 601


    Macs have it built in.

    Just use Preview app and Selector Tool

    Don't think it works for Canon though since Canon seems to hide that info.

    I'm not sure, but you can upload an image to this site..... http://www.camerashuttercount.com/

    and you get a result.

    (sadly not for my old Canon gear though)

    No kidding? Been using my iMac for 2 years now and didn't know this lol

    Awesome into too!

    Thanks guys!

    *We now return you to your regularly scheduled congratulatory thread posts*

    You camera's more shredded than a Julienne salad, man.

    Nice and congrats

    VERY nice :)

    I do adore full frame. When I went from my Canon 20D to my original 5D I was amazed. (Now I have a 5D II, amazing camera).
  12. macrumors 601


    I don't ever think I could go back to a crop body. This thing is amazing.

    Well, if I was shooting birds and wildlife, it would be a different story.

    Congratulations! Once you go FF, you never go back. Every since I went FF with my now sold Canon 5D, I will not go back to a crop sensor body.

    Nice photos too!
  14. macrumors 6502a


    The problem with FF is that you want to get the FX lenses to go with it.

    What application do you use to see the shutter count ?
  16. macrumors member

    I'm thinking of going that way too

    While I can't afford the new d800, the used d700s are really dropping in price. I have 5 Nikkor Ai-s lenses that have been gathering dust and your camera choice (the Nikon d700) is a logical one for me.:) You have taken some great example shots (good eye!) and I guess that I have to get a bid in on Yahoo's auctions here in Japan.:D
    Have fun!
    (in the Tokyo area)
  17. macrumors 68000


    Agreed. I have the Nikon trinity and I simply love them. I just got my D4 a few days ago. My goodness.... This camera is amazing....
  18. macrumors 601


    As said above, Mac's Preview app.
  19. macrumors member

    Your d700

    I assume that you bought it used?? How did you find one with so few shutter cycles? I see that you held a pretty good range of contrast in your first shot. Is this due to some Photoshop manipulation or just an indicator of the contrast range that comes naturally with this camera?
    Sorry for all the questions but I am thinking of getting one of these cameras and am collecting all the info I can before I buy.:D
  20. macrumors 601


    I bought it used. Some guy bought it, found out the D800 was coming out and missed his return window.

    The test shot (not longer on Flickr) was to test at small aperture (checking for dirty sensor) and dynamic range. It was straight out of camera.
  21. macrumors member

    Thanks for the info! Very helpful. I just need to get started on bidding on one of these. I wish that I could find one with that level of shutter count but they go for a premium here - if they are available.

    Fred Miranda buy/sell forums.
  23. macrumors member

    I'm in Tokyo. I am afraid that the shipping would be a little much:D
    Interesting site!
  24. macrumors 68020

    Many camera stores in Japan have a sizable used section, I know I'll be looking for an X100 once I'm back :)
  25. macrumors 601


    The X100 is a complete waste of time and undeserving of the hype it has received. It's frankly effectively a broken camera.
