I'm tempted to try the D810 for air shows...

I use my 1D4 for air shows and I'm pleased with the results.
But I found these Nikon D810 images on flickr. I'm very impressed with the IQ and detail.
The clarity is amazing. I may rent this camera some day.

Of course the photographer's skill plays an important role in capturing these images.
But my post concerns the D810's IQ. I wonder if he new 1DXII or 7DII can match the Nikon.

Check these out...be sure to view in large size...press keyboard 'L' for best view.

Gotta say, those are quite impressive. You can see every rivet.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

I think 2 of the 5 were shot air to air & many who do that use camera stabilizers which are expensive but get results. I'm not seeing EXIF info for any of them but see the Nikon 80-400 & a 150-600 mentioned on some I assume were ground to air.

You have all these Canon lenses.. why not a 5DSR?

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

The EXIf is given for the last two.

Right on, looking into that as well. I'm just not sure how a 50mp camera will work with fast moving subjects.

The 5DSR has an excellent focus system - as good or better than the 5D3 with 41 cross-type points. The D810 has much fewer cross-type points - 10 or 15 to the best of my knowledge. The D810 has, as can be expected, a bigger RAW buffer. I think I would pick the better focus sytem over the buffer personally, especially if I an invested into the Canon ecosystem.

Already having Canon lenses, I really would like to try the 5DS for airshows. I would not worry about all those saying you need really high shutter speeds etc with that sensor. Remember it is only the same pixel density as most of the current APS-C sensors, you just have 2.56 times the area, so 2.56×the number of pixels, about 19 MPixels in the APS-C area. So if your images work with a 7D of either flavour, they should work with the 5DS. If you are having to crop an APS-C sensor, as I find I do, even with a 600mm lens mounted (Sigma C in my case) cropping the same area from the larger sensor will pretty much identical.


The advantage that the bigger sensor is that once the image fills the middle 22.5×15mm of the sensor, instead of having to zoom out, you can simply crop less, which should give better final results.
