Nikon D800 vs D800E Digital SLR Review

 

The Nikon D800 offers 36.3 megapixels in a full frame Digital SLR, the D800E does as well, but offers even more detail, find out how the two cameras differ.

More detail visible with D800E; Excellent image quality; Extremely high resolution images; D800E includes Capture NX2; Includes printed manual; 2 year warranty

Close attention needs to be paid to focusing

Nikon D800E review

 

The D800E promises even sharper images than the Nikon D800, but with a couple of compromises. Do the benefits outweigh the negatives?

Just like the D800, but with even more detail at wider apertures

Costs more than the D800, while moiré could be an issue on some images

Nikon D800E

 

June 2012: This review has been significantly expanded to include detailed analysis of the performance of the D800 alongside its closely-related stablemate the D800E. We have also added samples and analysis of the D800/E's uncompressed video feature....

The Nikon D800E - at low ISOs and optimum lens apertures - offers slightly higher resolution than its less expensive sibling, the D800. Its raw files respond impressively well to a moderately aggressive sharpening routine while avoiding visible...

Nikon D800E Review

 

Boasting a 36-megapixel FX format sensor, the Nikon D800E is currently the highest-resolution “35mm size” digital SLR camera in the world. The D800E employs an optical filter with the anti-aliasing properties removed, producing sharper images than the...

The Nikon D700 has been a hot seller ever since it was introduced back in the summer of 2008. It had a great sensor, a robust but relatively lightweight body and a comprehensive feature set, and was sold at a price that many thought was reasonable for...

Nikon D800E

 

The Nikon D800E digital SLR is identical to the Nikon D800 , except it's designed to remove the effects of the optical low-pass filter (OLPF) for slightly sharper images than normal. That puts it at risk of producing moiré patterns, false colors, and...

First Test Report: Nikon D800E: Lab Test and Comments

 

The Nikon D800E contains a 36MP full-format FX sensor, a resolution normally associated with digital backs. This makes the D800E a competitor with medium format cameras made by Hasselblad or Phase One. The “E” version of this camera is contsructed...

extremely high resolution sensor ; very high dynamic range even in images take with high ISO speed settings ; large LCD screen ; uncompressed, Full-HD-output of video for high qualityexternal recording

only four frames per second in burst mode ; handling of 36 MP images needs very fast memory cards with high capacity, large hard discs and a fast PC/Mac for raw image conversion

As for me, I saw the D800 as an opportunity to revisit the Nikon marque and to look in some depth over a period of time at where the current state of the art from that company finds itself. So I put together a two camera, eight lens system for long...
