It’s been an exciting day at Seton Towers today with the arrival this morning of my new Nikon D800. I immediately dug out the battery and charger and set it charging so I could use it at lunchtime.

With the battery charged I just needed a subject – drizzle outside and a flat grey sky wasn’t too appealing so the chap who sits next to me at work became the guinea pig. I popped the battery into the camera, attached my 50mm f1.4 and took the shot….hummm, why does it have “demo” showing on the picture…oh bugger, forgot to put the memory card in!

So, this is picture number two taken with the new D800 – I was delighted – I’m not a portrait photographer and I had no idea how to set the camera properly and I still got this shot.

A number of people commented it must be a good camera to get such a shot…. 😉
