A 36MP sensor may be the first impress for most of the customers. With the highest resolution in 135mm DLSR, there must be a place for Nikon D800 in the market. As Nikon has been the arch-rival of Canon, the D800 is focused on beating the new high-end DSLR of Canon, the Canon 5D Mark III. So let us see what’s new in Nikon D800.
Expressively smaller than the D4, the D800 is not the most compact full-frame DSLR Nikon has released to date. It is taller than the D700 with a smooth appearance and higher pentaprism. A new body design differentiates the D800 from its predecessor. Due to the DSLR's larger footprint, the user will need to upgrade his grip along with the camera. Intuitive design makes D800 operation an awesome experience. A streamlined ergonomic body allows tough photography including Live View, Movie Record, Picture Control and White Balance to be performed at the touch of a button. Auto brightness control and anti-glare coating adds value to its design, no matter what the environment is. Alloy construction and environmental resistance make the D800 as comfortable in the field as in the studio.
D800 offers amazing pictures and some of the sharpest images around at sky-high ISO levels (ISO range is 100-6400 natively). Nikon D800 can take great pictures in low light and permit photographers various preference of venues in which they can take pictures with confidence irrespective of lighting conditions. The Nikon D800 comes with the mega-sized 36.3 million pixel sensor which lets photographers to blow up images to extra-large fine art prints without worrying about losing detail. Actually, the resolution of Nikon D800 is more than doubles from that of Nikon's iconic D4 and has become a standard among many professionals. The Nikon D800 strikes a perfect balance between sharpness and moiré for consistent performance and preventing the occurrence of false color. Therefore it is ideal photographers who do not wish to alter their workflow to mitigate the happening of moiré and false color. The Nikon D800 is an amazing 36.3 MP FX-format camera for artistic genius whether it is wedding, commercial or landscape. Its new Advanced Scene Recognition System featuring a 91,000-pixel RGB light meter is capable of rendering extraordinary levels of precision to AF, AE, i-TTL flash control, auto white balance and face recognition. Its Versatile AF area modes and superb AF detection in even the dimmest lighting deliver instant, pinpoint focus.
The innovative EXPEED 3 technology of Nikon assures and extends breathtakingly rich image fidelity and diminishes noise, even at high ISO's. Its EXPEED 3 is so powerful that it caters to the data-intensive jobs such as Full-HD video recording at 30p with effortlessness. With Nikon D800 you need not to worry about putting the camera away after the sun sets. With D800 you will adore taking pictures inside where light is dim and well after dark for some long exposure and amazing low-light photography. It was designed keeping all professional photographers in mind, but with 36.3-megapixel captures the Japanese camera maker's DSLR output is expected to surpass the needs of many. Its high-ISO performance is at par the likes of the D4 or Canon's 1D X.
There is EN-EL15 Lithium-Ion Battery with a capacity of 1900mAh and output voltage of 8.1 V. It is relatively compact, lightweight and handy. There is no effect on the battery while charging or discharging the battery. The built-in micro-processor notifies the battery life promptly. The battery life is displayed on it’s LCD and the viewfinder.
Nikon is proposing a second version called the D800E, which costs more than D800. This D800E model captures slighter finer detail and "enhanced" resolution in comparison to D800. But if you look at side-by-side images captured by the D800 and D800E, you cannot differentiate between the low-resolution samples. The differences are most distinguishable when you capture fine details, like hair of an individual in an uncompressed D800E image.
Overall, the Nikon D800 is an incredible DSLR camera that integrates all the features that a professional photographer would wish and any enthusiast would dream about.
