The Nikon D800 for Street Photography?

Well, yes and no.  The camera is too large and conspicuous to allow you to shoot and not be noticed.  But one advantage of the 36 megapixel sensor, as I see it, is that one can be relatively far away from the subject and do some serious cropping and still come away with a richly detailed image.

I think my poor results when I was first starting out with the camera were due to not having really learned the various auto-focus options at that point.

And then just take it down to b&w for that Leica Monochrom look?  Sure, why not?

I noticed I’ve got a stubborn little bit of schmutz on my sensor.  The standard method of just selecting “clean sensor” from the menu doesn’t seem to be dislodging this. I guess tomorrow it’s over to Stanley Street to buy some sort of sensor cleaning solution – hope it won’t be raining.

    D800 for street photography? You have got to be joking.

    How about a Caterpillar Bulldozer for sweeping the backyard?

    If you want the ultimate street photography camera, get the upcoming Nokia 808.
