The res­o­lu­tion of your shots will mat­ter, so be pre­pared to in­vest in kit

Photo agen­cies want the largest files they can get, and no D-SLR can touch the mar­ketlead­ing res­o­lu­tion of the D800/ e and D810.

“The Nikon D800 has brought the qual­ity of my dig­i­tal work up to and pos­si­bly be­yond the qual­ity of large for­mat (5x4), which I had been us­ing for 25 years be­fore go­ing dig­i­tal,” re­veals Tom Mackie. “I deal with clients that re­quire hi-res im­ages for mu­rals. I lost a lot of busi­ness when I moved from 5x4 to the Canon 5D and 5D Mk II, but now with 36 megapix­els in the D800 I’m re­gain­ing this part of my busi­ness.”

Richard Peters agrees: “Those large file sizes mean you can crop in to an im­age and still re­tain a large file size. I’d love to get ev­ery shot per­fect in-cam­era but the re­al­ity of work­ing with un­pre­dictable wildlife is that you can’t al­ways get close enough. The D800 means I can crop in­stead of us­ing a tele­con­verter, which would re­duce im­age qual­ity and fo­cus speed.”
