Shooting the streets with a Nikon D800, a few tips using this megapixel beast to make it more useable.

  1. shoot 12bit raw
  2. shoot compressed, not lossless but full on compressed
  3. if you really want to feel like you are using frames like on a Leica, change the image area to 1.2x crop and that way you will see what is coming into the frame.
  4. Change to silent mode, hang 5 silent mode on a Nikon is pretty much crap so don’t bother.
  5. Your file sizes are only 25mb, which is more than manageable.
