Nikon D810 Camera for Microstock Photography, Review and opinion

Should I upgrade to Nikon D810 Camera for microstock photography work?

Well, this question deserves an answer and of course it makes sense to go deeper to invest some time to understand whether it is sensible to upgrade to this camera which is worth of $2000 or so. This is a serious money and the most serious if it does not work in microstock markets.

Going by the market standards and the experience of the people who owned Nikon D800 or D800e model of Nikon, reported the higher earning and increased revenue after they upgraded from their previous models of cameras.  There are various agencies which are camera neutral, and it means; they are not going accept what ever you submit directly from any camera.

So, what makes this Nikon D810 camera worth for your work and selling images commercially. Well, it makes some sense to examine the specifications of this new camera. The specs look perfect and this 36 MP camera with Full Frame capabilities is certainly the top notch.  $2000 may not be earned very soon if you are just beginning in the microstock markets.

If you are established contributor and earning great money even today’s times, you are certainly a candidate who can and should invest in this camera.

Canon may be able to match D810 so soon because their line-up is not seeing any new entry so soon.  Canon may be working on something path breaking technology as I see in some forums. Canon users have 5D MarkIII system already which is expensive but very good camera for professional work.  Model shoot is a different paradigm and that requires much more than a nice camera.

Should you upgrade to Nikon D810 or not?  Well, the decision is entirely yours. Consider this; if you bought D800 or D800e recently, I do not see any point upgrading to D810.  There is no need to upgrade because there are no real benefits which would impact the quality of image which is everything.

Your camera may be the most expensive one but at the end of the day, the quality of image matters and if it is not there, the instruments are useless or may be you are not able to harness their full capabilities.

What about buying D810 as the first camera? Well, there is a learning curve attached with all DSLR cameras. It is good choice to begin with this particular camera. You would need extensive know-how to make it work the way it is expected.  If you have money and interest in learning about DSLR then go for it.  You would be having giant in your hand which you must explore to make that work.

What about replacing Canon old camera with Nikon 810?  Changing from one brand to another is not an easy choice because you build your kit and lens system around your camera. If you see real benefits changing from old brand to new brand, you would be investing much more than you can think because you would need to replace everything.  May be some lenses could be mounted on new camera but largely it would require a re-think and re-do everything from scratch. It is an expensive decision and if you need to do for sure, then only go for it otherwise live with your Canon camera and wait for Canon to release something new.

Will there be impact on earning in Microstock market with this camera? Yes, certainly, you would see the improved earnings and improved sale for sure. BUT, image from camera is half work done.  Rest half is always done and completed in post production or post processing stage which takes time.  A finished image in microstock market is result of camera and some manual work by photographer or the editor.

IF YOU HAVE MONEY AND CAN AFFORD NIKON D810, JUST GO FOR IT.
