Nikon D810 About to Ship

Pre-order the Nikon D810 at B&H Photo. Also, LensRentals.com rents the Nikon D810.

It appears that the Nikon D810 should ship on July 17. I’ll be looking at it very closely over the next few weeks.

See previous discussion:

One concern I have is what appears to be a restricted scenario use for the electronic first curtain (EFC) shutter, as per the manual. It appear to be available only in M-up mode, which would make it useless for executing the shot at just the right moment in Live View. Also, an EFC shutter available in Live View mode means no shutter-bang from exiting Live View mode, if indeed the D810 requires that procedure. But that worry is probably unfounded as per Tom S below.

The strange note on “lines or fog” is also worrisome (I dont’t understand what it means).

Nikon D810 EFC shutter

Tom S writes:

That freaked me out too but the official Nikon press release states:

“Additionally, the electronic front curtain can now act as an electronic front shutter when using live view or first composing through the optical viewfinder in mirror-up mode", under "Refined Controls and Construction”

Would be nice if the manual did not appear to contradict that by omission!

DIGLLOYD: this sounds very hopeful.
