Fall of a Giant… the tragic death of my Nikon D850

Fall of a Giant… the tragic death of my Nikon D850

"Fall of a Giant... the tragic death of my Nikon D850" is by Zoltan Acs (Facebook | Instagram):

Probably many remember the post about a year ago when a photographer left out his borrowed D850 - before it was available for to the public - at night somewhere near water to take time-lapse photos at night and by the morning the tide finished its work on the camera. When I saw those photos I almost cried and hoped this will never happen to me.

Not so long ago here on NR there was a post about how Nikon extensively testing the D850s in a very hard environment, humidity, temperature, dust, water and the cameras tackle everything.

I have been shooting in piss pouring rain time to time for 6 years. I love to shoot in the rain, I love those photos. Back then I had a lot less “pro” bodies and lenses and never had any problem.

Using a Nikon Z6 to photograph a newborn baby

Using a Nikon Z6 to photograph a newborn baby

Using a Nikon Z 6 to photograph a newborn baby

Guest post by Lee Pullen, a photographer from Bristol, UK.

I first dipped my toe into the Nikon waters back in 2008 with a D80. Before long I progressed to a D700, which was my faithful companion for almost a decade. I then invested in a D810, and most recently a Z 6. I planned to put this new mirrorless camera through its paces to document the first days of life for my baby, creating an album for them to enjoy when they’re older.

The first thing to note is how welcome the lighter weight and smaller size of the Z 6 was. Space in my hospital bag was at a premium – who knew that newborn babies would need so many clothes, nappies, blankets..! Due to space constraints, and aiming for simplicity, I elected to take just one lens: my Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 G ED, a workhorse I’ve used since 2009. The smaller and lighter upcoming 24-70 f/2.8 S lens would have been appreciated in this situation, but given the price I expect my current 24-70 will see a few more years of use!

Nikon D6 update

Nikon D6 update


The Nikon D6 has been delayed due to issues with the buffer design (this is the rumor I heard).

Nikon's goal was to create a camera with more MP and buffer that can provide the same performance as the Nikon D500.

The Nikon D6 announcement is still expected this year with shipping to start at the end of 2019 or in the first quarter of 2020 - just on time for the 2020 Summer Olympics that will begin in Tokyo on July 24, 2020.

Adobe Lightroom issue with certain Nikon D850 NEF files

Adobe Lightroom issue with certain Nikon D850 NEF files


Adobe Lightroom Classic CC has a bug that prevents it from importing or previewing Nikon D850 NEF files shot while the camera is in Live Movie Mode set to DX (NEF files in 16:9 ratio). Adobe has just acknowledged they have duplicated the issue. Capture One Pro and Luminar open these files just fine. Apparently not a new issue with Lightroom and happened with the Nikon D800.

Thanks Chris!
