DCP 60: The Uber-megapixel Nikon D800 and Has FCP X Got Its Groove Back?


Are the new Nikon D800 and D800E - each sporting a huge 36 megapixel full-frame sensor - worthy competitors of the venerable Canon 5D Mark II? planetMitch (planet5D.com) gives us the details on these new Nikon cameras. Canon also released new product this week - the successor to the 24-70mm f2.8 L lens. The new lens is $1,000 more than the original. Is it worth it?

The big news last week was Apple's 10.0.3 update to FCP X. Post-production guru Chris Fenwick (chrisfenwick.com) gives FCP X's new multicam feature a thorough work out on a new music video that was shot last week. How does the new multicam feature stack up against other NLE's? Is this finally the FCP X release everyone has been waiting for? Has FCP X finally got its groove back? Listen to the show to hear Chris' reaction to this new update.

Thank you for listening. I appreciate, too, planetMitch and Chris Fenwick for contributing to a lively discussion of all things photo and video. Please keep your questions and comments coming!
