Photography has entertained, informed and infuriated me for over 55 years. This blog covers my interests in still, video, cine, monochrome and colour photography as well as dealing with optics for bird-watching and viewing wildlife. The reader will also find something on the history of photography in Britain from the 1950s to the present day.

Extra Detail or More Crunch? Nikon D800E
There were useful photographs comparing the Nikon D800 with the 800E in ePhotozine:
There was a discernible difference between the two cameras. In some photographs it appeared that was genuinely more detail whereas in others it seemed there was more ‘crunchiness’ as one would expect from a lack of anti-aliasing. Has Nikon achieved a good compromise whereby they have enough anti-aliasing to get extra real detail while avoiding the artifactual over-crunchiness? I suspect they have. Failure to prevent moiré patterning is the downside. The choice between the D800 and the D800E would now be a difficult decision for me.
