Photography & video, D800 vs 5D Mark iii. Hear & read a lot about the two bodies and how they fullfil a niche but not best for both. D800 is great for photography but best for video.
What are your thoughts and recommendation on the ideal camera body?
There is no "ideal camerabody". Sorry.
I definitely prefer a D800 over a 5D3 - also for video. But in a way itÂ´s a matter of taste.
PS: in terms of video - the D800 provides recordable, uncompressed HDMI-output. ThatÂ´s a killer-feature. I donÂ´t know whether the 5D3 provides that also - 5D2 didnÂ´t.
