@obajoba - that shouldn't be a problem for d3s. as I wrote before, had bigger waves hitting my cam in the past. and if You want to be more creative, for the price of d4 You can get d3s with some housing.
@obajoba I too got my D4 for $5000, I jumped on it like a Grizzly bear on a salmon!
And another question: are you sure to be better off without selling pictures and making them only for fun? If that surfer guy was your photo, it is pro level and should not be given away for free except you take revenge on some pros.
@obajoba Mike is the voice on one shoulder...I'm on the other side whispering: D4...D4....D4....muhaaaaaa! By all mean start posting on PAD man
I understand your concern...in the end you will do what YOU feel is the best gear for you AND within your budget. Please don't take me humor the wrong way. Do not put yourself in any financial hardship...Period! Rent the D4 for trip, if need be, and make your discussion afterwards.Glad you found PAD :P
In a pinch, this will get you upgraded to an FX camera on the cheap.http://shop.nikonusa.com/store/nikonprt/en_US/pd/productID.255745400
Oh <>, who am I kidding, I'm just doing circles and in the end I will tell the wife I spent $3k but actually spend 6k and buy <> D4....
