Is a Nikon D800 worth the money? I'm debating on buying one in the near future, but it's quite a lot of money so I want to make sure it's worth it :P
I’d definitely say that the D800 is worth the money. BUT there are a lot of things you’ll need to look out for when purchasing a camera such as the D800.
Firstly, it’s a lot of money to fork out if you don’t have that great an interest in photography. The D800 isn’t a camera to just sit on the shelf and get dusty when you lose interest - the body alone will cost you a good £1,400. Secondly, you’ve gotta determine what you’re wanting out of your photography. The D800 is a pro camera, resulting in no ‘auto’; it’s entirely manual. If you can’t handle that, bump yourself down to something like the D600 which is slightly cheaper.
Other things to watch out for are things like the ergonomics and the aesthetics of the body. If it doesn’t feel comfortable or you don’t like the way things are laid out, try a Canon or possibly just another Nikon model.
The manual for the D800 is like my bible - I read it pretty frequently even though I feel like I know the camera inside out. There’s always things you’ll forget, and it’s good to refresh your memory to get the best out of your camera.
The D800 is what you make of it, use that to your advantage.
Good luck homie, let me know how it goes!
