Camera Porn – Nikon D810 – Look Away Now

I couldn’t resist.  I fought it with every fibre of my being.  I have been debating buying a new camera for a while now and I already adore my Nikon D750 but as a live music photographer I really do need a second camera.  My Olympus e-520 has served me well for many years but it simply does not have the versatility required of gig photography.

When I bought the D750 just over a year ago I spent forever trying to choose between it and the D810.  The D750 is such a good camera that I very nearly bought a second one and it would have certainly served my needs admirably.

In the end I plumped for a new D810 because I am getting more into portrait photography and I am really keen to develop this aspect of my work.  The resolution of the D810 will open up new aspects in terms of photo-art as well.

As a result a D810 will shortly be winging its way to my front door courtesy of SLR Hut and DHL.

I can’t wait to put it through its paces.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
