Nikon D800E Price in US

The staggeringly high pixel count of the Nikon D800 and D800E’s 36.3-megapixel CMOS sensors was the feature that initially drew everyone’s attention to these cameras, and it continues to do so to a significant degree even after their announcement. When the goal of a moderately sized full-frame DSLR body is to compete head-to-head with medium format cameras and backs at a fraction of their price, other characteristics may appear less important. But don’t let it fool you. Nikon has improved a great deal more than just the resolution in their new D7100, which is the company’s successor to the D700, which is now three and a half years old. The Nikon D800 boasts a feature set that is noticeably more advanced than that of its predecessor, notably in terms of the video capabilities it possesses. These features, at the very least on paper, make it a viable and appealing alternative for pros.

A revolutionary new sensor that was created by Nikon is at the core of the D800. This sensor has a total of 36.8 million pixels and is capable of producing a maximum effective resolution of 36.3MP. It has a native ISO range of 100-6400, with the capability of expanding to a range that is similar to 50 (‘Lo1’) to 25,600 (‘Hi2’). The D800/E is Nikon’s highest resolution DSLR to date, with a pixel count that is more than twice as high as the company’s flagship model, the D4. The D800 should spark the attention of a great many enthusiast Nikon customers as well; many of these people may have been “trapped” at 12MP for years, using a D300, D300s, or D700 camera. The D800 has the potential to be highly appealing to pros who work in studios and in landscape photography.

The D800 obviously confronts stiff competition from a field that has also achieved substantial advancements in recent years. Canon, one of Nikon’s chief competitors, has just released an improved version of its best-selling full-frame camera, the 22.3-megapixel EOS 5D Mark III. It is a fact that the D800 needs to demonstrate that it is a compelling upgrade for existing Nikon shooters in order to be successful. In spite of this, a cursory examination of the camera’s features reveals that Nikon has evidently been paying close attention to the achievements of Canon’s EOS 5D Mark II, in particular the camera’s video capabilities. The dedicated Nikon users have great hopes that the D800 would match or even outperform the previous Nikon DSLRs in terms of their remarkable high ISO performance, all while delivering the benefits of a resolution that has a far larger pixel count.

Both the D800 and the D4 have a number of other features and characteristics that are similar to one another. Although the D800 has a much slower maximum frame rate at full resolution (4fps, compared to 11fps in the D4) and lacks some of the pro-oriented “frills” like built-in Ethernet connectivity, it shares the same redesigned 51-point autofocus system that is effective down to -2EV, the same processing engine, and almost exactly the same highly advanced video mode as the D4. This is despite the fact that the D800 offers a much slower maximum frame rate at full

Good

Outstanding image quality is achieved with the Nikon D800, which is particularly striking at high ISO settings due to the camera’s lightning-fast performance and intuitive control layout. Those users who need to generate both still images and video while they are on assignment will find the expanded video capabilities appealing. If you are willing to hold the highest standards for both your technique and your equipment, the camera’s 36-megapixel sensor enables class-leading resolution in a 35mm format camera. However, this only applies if you are using the camera in conjunction with the highest possible settings.

Cons
  • It is not as user-friendly as we would want it to be while shooting uncompressed video to the recorder through HDMI.
  • Continuous filming at a very sluggish 4 frames per second when set to FX mode (6 fps with optional battery grip in DX mode)
  • Despite the redesigned design, the rear LCD is susceptible to glare in intense sunlight.
  • The new "simplified" AF mode switch takes more steps than its predecessor in order to move between the AF-S, AF-C, and AF area modes (compared to the D700)
  • The screen goes black when shooting in live view, and it stays that way until the data is recorded to the card.
  • There is no option that is comparable to Canon's "small RAW."
  • The appearance of artifacts in fine detail at high magnifications in live view is possible.
  • Live view and video modes both include a slow AF (compared to phase-detection)
  • The ISO button is located in a somewhat inconvenient place for operation when the camera is held to one's eye.
