The D700 has many functions like other cameras of equal value so no need to review the obvious. What I like about the D700 is the full image size chip as this eliminates all the factor conversions that we had to deal with in the past. Also, the most useful feature of the D700 is the high ISO speeds and the low grain that goes with it (up to a point). To me this opens up a whole new world of photography that you just can't get when using flash. Recently I photographed a wedding inside a church that was moderately lit. The first half using flash and the second half upping the ISO to 2500 and turning off the flash. This resulted in much better images as compared to the usual flash pictures where the subject is illuminated ok but everything else is black. These kinds of photos make for poor pictures of beautiful brides. However, using available light and high ISO speeds everything blends well and while there may be a small amount of grain it is definitely unobjectionable. On slide shows the grain is not noticed unless a pix is blown up many times. I use high ISO setting all the time. D-lighting is another good feature that you can use when you have a wide range of lighting in your picture. With the D700 you have the option of using 'Auto' or chosing your own settings of 'low', 'medium', or 'high'. As with all digital cameras not all enviornments can be handled by the auto metering. As an example I was using a telephoto to photograph dance performances on stage which used all kinds of different lighting. The background was black or highly reflective in most cases and as a result performer's faces/costumes were over exposed due to average metering. Center weighted produced better results but still not perfect and spot metering is too hit or miss. Once I switched to manual and spot metering and taking a few test photos the results improved emensely. Keep in mind though that these types of environments are tricky and difficult for any camera to handle properly. The message is don't expect to get perfect settings just because you bought a higher end camera. The only other negative is that I was expecting a more vivid pix with this chip technology. While the pixs were totally acceptable they didn't jump out at you regarding color brilliance. Maybe this is a limitation of our current chip technology. The D700 is well built, rugged, and a tad heavy but then again it is packed with a lot of features so this is understandable. Ergonomically the D700 fits like a glove and all buttons are in the right position. I should comment on the placement of the 'menu' button though as when using the viewfinder I often hit the 'menu' button with my nose which turns on the display. Maybe my nose is larger than normal but I would like to hear from other users about the same. Speaking of menus those in the D700 are laid out VERY well. I own some lower end point and shoot digital cameras that to this day I have to use the manual everytime I used the camera to learn how to operate some of the most basic features. However, this is not the case with the D700. Good job here. As for the instruction manual it is well thought out and easy to locate a description of the features you are interested in. The manual also starts out with the basic settings/features so the user can get started quickly. Next in the manual each feature is covered in detail and finally the advanced functions are described. Good manual layout indeed. The only complaint I have about the manual is the grayish, light print ink that is used. Maybe the younger photographers can read it ok but I find it very difficult to read the manual due to it's light print. When at a photo shoot and you have to look up something usually light conditions are very poor which makes reading the manual very difficult. I would recommend the D700 to anyone who is willing to spend the extra money IF they have a need to use all of its features......which it has many. If you don't need all of these features Nikon makes plenty of less expensive cameras that will do the job just fine. I'm looking forward to the next generation of the D700 and how Nikon will make a great camera even better.

I shoot D3's...needed a backup body in a pinch and bought the 700 for the sensor to keep consistent in the settings as I swap between bodies - shooting live editorial and events. I'm a pro and NPS member. The D700 I own- DIED and by Nikon's Tech team - is beyond economic repair. The damage it suffered was "moistness" leading to the effect of liquid damage....frying 100% of the circuit boards...turning the device into a $2800 paperweight. I am really disappointed with the LACK OF WEATHER SEALING on this body.....the same conditions that killed my D700 are the same that numerous D3's have lived through. The D700 is not a pro-sumer or Pro body - it's a consumer camera with a great ship that is over priced. The sensor is the king....the shutter is a joke and doesn't compare tot he D3....some say no biggie - at the price...the D3 shutter should be in this body. Where is the weather sealing that supports worldwide professional use? Why can nikon NOT fix circuit boards at a cost? I want the FX sensor with the D3 shutter...leave other things out and sell us that combo.....the added price of a D3 body is quite a spread.

One of Nikon's Best Ever DSLR Camera Bodies in Terms of Quality and Value

By 

from San Diego, California

Comments about Nikon D700 Digital SLR Digital Camera:

The Nikon D700 DSLR was Nikon's first full frame sensor camera body. This camera's image quality is superb and the camera is still relevant today. With its 12 megapixel sensor, I have printed images that are 24" 36" with virtually no loss in resolution, as is the case of the photo below off a mosque in Instanbul, Turkey

A few years old and 12.1 Mp but up.to the task. ISO performance is awesome.

By 

from Northern, VA, USA

Comments about Nikon D700 Digital SLR Digital Camera:

Just recently picked up the D700 used and didn't know what I had been missing. I can shoot at FX format or if I want some longer legs I can shoot the DX format. rarely use the flash anymore. Can shoot beautiful ISO 3200 shots with my 80-400mm AF-D VR at high shutter speeds (+1/1000). Don't really need the VR at those shutter speeds. Summed up: Great camera with lots of life left.

Great all round camera

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon D700 Digital SLR Digital Camera:

I've been using Nikon since around '74 or so and purchased my first digital a year ago. A D2x which is a great camera at ISOs up to around 400. I wanted to take advantage of my FX lenses especially the wide angle ones and have better low light performance. The D 700 delivers. a nice size, enough weight to stabilize long lenses hand held, but not so heavy it causes fatigue carrying it around all day. I read the complaints about the hot shoe, but I learned way back in the '70s not to put a big honking speed light on a hot shoe, use a bracket and there are no problems. Pros: build quality, weather sealing, size and feel. Focus is fast and accurate. works with all my older AF Nikors as well as my AI/AIS manual focus lenses. Cons; None that I've found. In short the D700 delivers what you expect from a Nikon

Problem child camera, hot shoe can fry the circuts, did to my first, replacement doing the same

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Nikon D700 Digital SLR Digital Camera:

This is a problem child, when I first got the D700, it was great, no issues, SB900 on hot shoe will loosen then short, starts with LCD screen on SB900 flickering and no flash output, this during a wedding is a no go, or any event for that matter, Nikon replaced mine after it shorted out the circuit and they could not fix it, it was a case of pointing to the grass below me and taking a photo of a cat laying down, Ginger in color, cloudy day, everything reset to make sure camera was set correct, and the exposure was 8000 of a second at 1.5, on cloudy day looking at deep green grass, but then the image was over exposed by three stops at least. Got a refurbished D700 with just 65 shutter count, got to 6500 shutter count, same thing happening at a very expensive and high end event we were paid for. I am done with D700s, not good, and not reliable and the camera cannot hold its own, even so grainy at ISO 400 and 200 with perfect exposure. Requesting Nikon replace with another model, I have been dealing with this with Nikon since April 2011 to today July 2013 yes those dates are correct. I cannot tell you how many times the D700 let me down on very important jobs and I had to rent a better camera and use my backups and not trust the D700 again. Without going into too many details other than above, Nikon along with the D700 has cost me so much money and work since 2011 I am constantly trying to fight my way back up to where I was when I started the business! Nikon let me down and still does until they replace with a better model for the damage they have done to my business and my clients and my pocket for all the rentals I have had to do. And I will be shocked if they post this as its damaging to Nikon and Nikons past good name that I have stood by, so when are Nikon going to stand by me for loyalty of years now they have cost me so much in so many ways

Best Nikon I've owned, and Used!

By 

from Boulder, CO, USA

Comments about Nikon D700 Digital SLR Digital Camera:

I have had the D700 for two years now, and it has been a wonderful camera. I travel alot and this fits perfectly with me. I have taken it to Canada, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Germany without any hiccups. The performance is phenomenal, the autofocus is fast and precise and even though it only has 12.1 megapixels it produces great looking, extremely enlargeable pictures. I will only purchase a new camera when this one fails to meet my expectations. It been two years and she's still going strong! Thanks Nikon for the Best Camera I've ever owned! Nikon for Life!

Long-term Review

Comments about Nikon D700 Digital SLR Digital Camera:

I have owned and used two D700 bodies since 2008. Even today I have D4 and D800 in my bag, D700 still never fails to do a fine job. The only issue is that its rubber grip materials needs to be glued once in a while. Both of my D700 bodies have been sent back to Nikon for grip replacements a few times. Here is a low-light image captured recently with D700 at f/3.5 1/500 ISO 12800

Comments about Nikon D700 Digital SLR Digital Camera:

I bought this D700 to replace my D2X for a year after spend lots and lots of hours read and compare it with its brother D3 or its competitor the Canon 5D Mark II. I never regret my choice of excellent image quality and perfect built quality of this monster.
