It’s front heavy now, but it’s not bad. I’m not going to feel comfortable handling it until I get it strapped up and everything. I was just playing for a few minutes before I saw the stuck pixel and packed it up so I didn’t even have a strap on it. A grip will be a priority for myself.

And all the damn buttons! The manual is at least 3 times thicker than the 5D MKII manual and the lens manuals are as thick as the 5D MKII manual. :D

There’s going to be a lot to learn and I’m going to have to see about configurations. The standard AF was OK. Out of the 5-6 shots I took of my dog, only one didn’t focus on the eye area and instead was on his snout, but he’s a Doberman and there’s a lot of snout the focus on.

My next purchase will be a 24-70 f/2.8.


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!

I've shot a lot of Nikon bodies and a lot of Canon bodies.....I still think Nikon is easier to learn and use. I probably just got use to using Nikon more.

Just trolling through the menu it’s pretty easy to see what’s what, but I haven’t gotten very in depth yet. I don’t care for the ISO button position as of now and that it has to be held down, but again, I used it for all of 10 minutes yesterday.

I just got off the phone with Best Buy and they got me set up. They’re shipping another kit out to my house and I’ll return the camera when I get it, so I’ll probably have a look at the manual and whatnot. I’m excited to get the 24-70 so I can start really using the camera. That and the 70-200 are my most two used Canon lenses, but having just a 70-200 is limiting. I have a family’s Christmas photo shoot tomorrow evening. I may take it for a test drive, but I’d honestly prefer to not be using a completely brand new camera system for a paid shoot two days after I get it. :D

Check out "Easy ISO". It may help you with dealing with the ISO button.

I have the 70-200 2.8 VR I and no grip on my D750, and I have no issues with the balance. I am sure the 70-200 VR I/II would look and feel more natural with a D810, but I have no issues with that lens on my little D750.

For what it is worth, as far as the video shoot out between the D750 and 5D3 is concerned, I chose the D750 13 out of 13 times in the WB test. I have noticed how accurate the AWB is on my D750 when compared to my previous camera's like the 5D3 and 6D.

The two outer blocks of ten cross-type AF points are nice to have, as with the 5D3, but they are only useful when using a lens that is f/4.0 or faster. I got rid of my 5D3 because those outer cross-type AF points would not work with my 100-400 L or the 400 5.6 L. I should have paid more attention to the tech specs on the 5D3 before I purchased it. After selling the 5D3, I bought a 70D and 6D, and preferred that combo over the 5D3.

My D750, nails AF with any of the 15 center AF points at least 99% of the time, and this is with moving targets. I am not sure why the guy in the video was having so much trouble; maybe the 5D3 is better at focusing on tiny little moving targets than the D750 is.

I believe you can reassign the movie record button for ISO. This is something I'll definitely be doing on both the D810 and D750 when I get them.

I will still select Canon :)

Not me. The 750 has several features I need and use that the Mark III does not.


I use a Kodak Brownie

I personally love the Nikon battery grip for the 750. It's one of the best ones they've made. Unlike the camera body itself, the grip is a solid magnesium shell and adds some nice heft to the body. Also, the attachment dials are quite a bit smaller than the ones on the D600/610 grip were, more in line with the older D700 style, and that streamlines the whole thing.

I used to buy 3rd party grips, but the buttons and fit of the official Nikon ones are so much better, it's worth the money...


As for balance: I don't have much of a problem as with my large lenses (Tamron 24-70 F/2.8 & Nikon 80-200 F/2.8) I tend to cradle the lens and just lightly hold the camera body.

Wow, good thing I have a replacement on the way, there are a lot of stuck pixels on the rear LCD. I can easily see 15 of them. Anyone else have it that bad?

Yikes! I have 0 stuck pixels on the rear LCD. I purchased mine in-store at Yodabashi Camera and it's registered with Nikon Japan. (As I will be living here for as long as I expect to own this camera anyway.)

Switched the shutter speed and aperture controls. The aperture is controlled by the back wheel now as it should be. Changed the JPG from standard to flat and that seems to have helped out the image preview. There's still a really painterly-ish quality to the images. I didn't have my card reader so I'll have to take a look at them in LR tonight. The AF is just mind blowing compared to the 5D MKII and I haven't even figured out how to put it on single point just yet. :D Live View AF is much better than the 5D MKII as well, but it's a 4 year old camera, so I would expect it to be.

Nevermind about Best Buy. Now I’m having issues with getting them to exchange it and doing what one rep said they would. Looks like I’m going to have to go back to the store tonight. So frustrating…They sell you a defective camera but make it nearly impossible to exchange it for the same thing.
