Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our Exposed! listings (if available), usually marked with a green badge. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Nikon D800E Camera
This is the Nikon D800E, not the standard D800. While all its controls are identical, it does not have the low pass/anti-aliasing filter that is found on the D800. This camera is useful for shooting extremely high-resolution images with optimum sharpness. However, this does come at the expense of moiré possibly showing in repetitive areas or patterns in your images. This is usually prevented by the low pass/anti-aliasing filter, but the D800E does not have the filter. While the description below is for the D800, all of the features are the same for the D800E.
The D800 series offers Nikon’s highest resolution to date in a DSLR at 36.3MP. The D800 series has many of the same features as the Nikon D4, including the improved 51-point AF system, Nikon EXPEED 3 image processor, 3.2" rear LCD, and the 91K pixel metering sensor.
Among the unique features of the D800 series are a 15.3MP DX-mode, allowing high-quality images when DX lenses are used. Sports shooters may also find the 25MP 1.2x crop mode useful for giving just a little more distance to their telephoto lenses. For continuous shooting, the D800 is capable of 4fps in FX mode and 6fps in DX mode. The button layout has gone through a slight restructuring, including the adoption of the Nikon D7000 AF mode/function control. The D800 has both CF and SDHC/XC memory card slots.Like the D4, Nikon has included the same beefed up the video mode in the D800. It records 1080p at 24/30fps in H.264/MPEG-4 format in camera, or uncompressed 8-bit 4.2.2 footage via external recorder. The on-screen audio levels and headphone jack simplifies monitoring with 20-step increments for adjusting audio levels in-camera. Full manual adjustment of exposure settings are possible, including the 1/8th-stop power aperture mode, allowing extreme fine-tuning. For situations where external monitoring is required, the D800 allows simultaneous on-camera Live View as well.
Yep. It really does increase resolution noticeably (given a good lens in front of it) compared to the D800. No question about it. I’m a resolution hound so guess which camera I wish I was shooting with? I say “I wish” because we can’t keep any in stock long enough for me to do more than take pictures around the office. Several people who have used the camera stated moire was really not an issue, even with things like printed fabrics, etc. I’m sure it will show up once in a while, but I really don’t care.
