Review: Nikon D4

I took delivery of my Nikon D4 about 3 weeks ago (April 17th) and, while I haven’t had the time to really use it, I’ve been able to do some casual shooting and start to get comfortable with it.

Like my Nikon D3 review, I’m going to keep this review short and only touch on problems I’ve had and bring up features other major review sites haven’t already discussed Ad nauseum.

Webkit Bug #23364 - Font Smoothing

I’ve created a test page for a bug that’s been driving me batty for a while. The problem arises when you have relative positioned elements inside of relative positioned elements and animations (apparently when Flash players are embedded on the page too) appearing on the page.

I’m done supporting it. In fact, I don’t even officially support IE7. So, If you’re wondering why my site looks broken or funky, you should update your browser.

I recommend one of the following:

Aperture 2: Max Supported File Size

Ok, this is totally ridiculous. I found out from an Apple support agent that Aperture currently has a supported file size limit of 250MB. This is why I have been getting the maroon, “Unsupported Image Format” error all the time.

I sold my 1st-gen MacBook Pro on Craigslist last week and picked up a new unibody MacBook Pro and a new 24” LED Cinema Display to go with it.

Review: Nikon D3 and 14-24mm f/2.8

So, I have been using the D3 and 14-24 since December and have been really impressed.

There are already 9k other sites out there doing D3 reviews so I am going to keep it short. I just wanted to touch on a couple things I really find helpful after using the camera for a few months.

Aperture 2: Nikon D3 NEF Support

...is great but has one major issue for me. It is clipping the color detail too early. This means I am getting monochrome shadow areas on my colored subjects and it looks really bad.

Let me expound upon this and give some examples.

Aperture’s raw conversion for the Nikon D3 is clipping the color from shadows…. generally. (About 99% of the time.) It is possible that the couple of images I haven’t seen the problem occur in have color detail just above the clipping threshold.

This really makes for some ugly images. I know, I said that already, but now you can see it for yourself.
