Today’s guest post is by Roie Galitz (website | Facebook) on his recent trip to Tanzania (click on images for larger view):

Tanzania is one of my favorite places in the world. The incredible planes of the Serengeti and the little brothers of mount Kilimanjaro are home to the great natural wildlife as it has been for millions of years. For me it is an amazing experience, going there year after year is a dream come true and an opportunity for many wonderful experiences and images. Africa never stops surprising and amazing me and every day is an uncharted journey with countless opportunities.

I have started with the D300, moved on to D3s, D4 and the D800. Which is my favorite? You probably want to know. Actually the big competition is between the D4 and the D800. Speed vs. Quality. With both cameras on me I could have a choice and I choose quality, aka D800. Sure, it’s much slower than the speedy D4. But when it comes to quality – the D800 outperformed big-time.

The D800 is capable of wonderful 1080p video and Tanzania has given me many opportunities to capture. Here is a video with some of the best moments I managed to capture with my D800 and a wide choice of lenses – Nikon 500mm F/4 VR, Nikon 80-400mm AF-S, Nikon 24-70 F/2.8, Nikon 16-35 F/4 and Nikon 14-24 F/2.8:
