I bought this Full Frame model (24X36 = 35mm equivalent) after gaining experience with the APS-C smaller format D300s, which I love. The D700 is an older model than the D300s (which is based on the D700, with almost the same features, plus video.) The D700 has a rugged Magnesium alloy frame with dust/moisture sealing. It is easy to use with user-friendly and mostly intuitve menus. This is truly a model that can be called 'high-end'. It is an expensive model, and utilizes the expensive AF line of lenses, but if you are buying this camera you are obviously very seriously into photography. In relation to its nearby high-end models, the D700 sort of sits by itself with only one CF card slot. The other nearby models either use a CF/SDHC combo, or TWO CF cards. I don't know why the D700 has only one card slot, but it is not that big of a deal - you just need to use a 16GB (or higher) capacity card if you really need a large file volume. The 'dust-off' feature does a good job of removing a dust particle from the sensor, should you get one (and we ALL do eventually.) This model is also the 'highest end' camera to retain an on-camera pop-up flash. It is OK, but most users of this model will certainly be using a separate shoe-mount flash unit. Functioning of my D700 is smooth and flawless. The photo's are almost always perfectly exposed, including on-board and stand-alone flash. The many auto-focusing modes are VERY quick and ACCURATE and the exposures are almost always spot-on. The 3D Predictive Tracking is absolutely amazing. The many features of this camera are very useful without providing any meaningless 'gimmicky items.' The D700 is really a professional item that serves the serious enthusiast well.

I've been a professional photographer for 25 years during which time 've used Nikon cameras. I've had a series of problems with the D700. It randomly switches from RAW to .jpg. I've been in the middle of several shoots and noticed that is has done this. It also has a problematic hotshoe. While shooting on TTL at -3, it can blow out the picture by several stops. Not all the time, but when it decides to. While using it with a transmitter, at times when pushing the shutter button, nothing happens. And most recently with a Nikon strobe on the hotshoe but off, the camera will only shot at 250 sync as if the strobe was on.

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

By Jarhead

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 KeithM

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 Pete

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 Nikon4Life

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

By NIkonShooter2009

from Undisclosed

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.
