Around the world with a Nikon D800

Olivier Abellan is a passionate photographer and this year he started with his wife an 11 months world travel journey. You can see the pictires of their trip on their website www.thebeloons.com.

First of all, I would like to apologize for my English. I'm a french speaking person, who practices his English only on rare occasions. Yet, I really wanted to share my experience on [NR], because I'm a big big fan of this website, and have been following it for many years now.

I'm not a professional photographer, just a passionate one, who has been living in New Caledonia for the last 7 years. What ? New Caledonia ? Where is that, might many of you ask. Well, to be perfectly honest, I couldn't have answered this question 7 years ago before we settled in. But now, I can... it's an island in the South Pacific, and it's about 3 hours flight East of Sydney. From France, it's a 24hours flight, so let's say my family doesn't come every weekend.

As you probably already know Capture NX2 is no longer supported by Nikon and it is replaced by the less capable Capture NX-D version. Few weeks ago I published a post about the free RAW2NEF software - an alternative solution that allows you to edit Nikon D810 NEF/RAW files with Capture NX2. The latest version of RAW2NEF now also supports Nikon D750 NEF/RAW files. For additional information, visit this website.

Nikon-Df-camera-sale
Nikon-Df-camera-price-drop
I am not sure if this is part of the Cyber Monday deals, an upcoming price reduction or just a mistake, but the price of the Nikon Df camera dropped at OneCall's website and also at their Amazon store: the body only is now $2,346.95 ($400 off) and the lens kit is $2,396.95 ($600 off). OneCall lists on their website that the camera comes with one year Nikon warranty. The MSRP of the Nikon Df in all other online stores is still $2,746.95.
