Nikon D800

 

Much more than just a collection of big numbers, the D800 is Nikon's best DSLR yet.

36.3MP sensor produces bags of fine detail ; Pro-grade build quality ; Phenomenal image quality in all conditions

36.3MP sensor produces huge file sizes ; 4fps may be a tad slow for some pros' needs

Nikon D800 review

 

The Nikon D800 is the highest resolution digital SLR in the 35mm camera format

Rugged construction ; Practical layout ; Excellent picture quality

Hefty price tag for a step-up ; Quite bulky and heavy

Nikon D800

 

Several years ago, Nikon announced the D90 - the first digital SLR that could record video. Clips were short, at under five minutes, and restricted to 720p, but it was the start of a revolution. And we're not exaggerating, because SLR-based video has...

Image quality is insane, video is nothing short of superb, camera layout is practical and simple to use,

Expensive, big images can cause buffer to fill too quickly, LCD panel hard to focus by, will cost you a fortune in lenses

There is little doubt that the D800 is a terrific camera. Photographically speaking, the 36.6-megapixels is an amazing leap forward, images have an awe-inspiring level of detail and this gives a lot of flexibility over using the camera. Shoot something...

Nikon D800 review

 

Are 36-million pixels too many?

Excellent detail resolution ; Extensive dynamic range ; Large images ; Superb AF system

Large files sizes ; JPEG HDR mode ; No in-camera rating

The excitement surrounding the announcement of the full frame Nikon D800 has been unprecedented.

Nikon D800 review

 

This slight edge might prove advantageous to commercial photographers shooting on very high-resolution (and even more expensive) medium format cameras. This Nikon therefore straddles two markets.

With the 18MB file sizes produced by the D800’s 36MP shots providing peace of mind plus incredible realism, this is the DSLR for those wishing to future proof their photography and enable a multitude of uses.

This year's best camera is the Nikon D800. Its 36-million-pixel full frame sensor offers exceptionally high resolution capture and, according to EISA magazine tests, no compromises have been made to the extent of the camera's dynamic range or noise...

Nikon D800 review

 

For a camera costing around £2,600, the D800 is unrivalled in the level of detail it can resolve and is an enticing prospect, particularly for landscape photographers.While luminance and chroma noise are gradually introduced up the ISO range, and the...

Nikon D800 review

 

Does the world's highest resolution DSLR deliver a global best performance?

Tough workhorse-like body construction, highest resolution sensor in a DSLR to date provides incredible detail plus very reasonable future proofing, compatibility with a very wide range of Nikon lenses increases creative flexibility for HD video and...

Pricey if you don’t require all those pixels, or are stepping up from a consumer DSLR, while big and bulky construction means it’s not the most convenient option

With the 18MB file sizes produced by the D800’s 36MP shots providing peace of mind plus incredible realism, this is the DSLR for those wishing to future proof their photography and enable a multitude of uses.

Nikon D800 Review

 

We review the Nikon D800, a full-frame all rounder in the DSLR market

All this serves to make the Nikon D800 a delight to use. The reassuring build quality and the relative ease and speed of use makes it a great camera to handle, regardless of whether you're a hobbyist or a professional using it as a working tool.
