5fps continuous shooting ; Image colour options (inc clarity setting) ; Auto shutter speed control for auto ISO (based on lens) ; Very good noise performance ; Excellent image quality ; Infrared and astrophotography (H-alpha) sensitivity ; Can also be...

Needs the better / best lenses to get the best quality from the camera ; Buttons don't illuminate in low light, which would be handy for night photography ; Higher sensitivity to red could cause issues for general photography ; Nikon D810 offers lower...

The Nikon D810A is designed specifically for astrophotography, and it delivers excellent results. As with the other Nikon D8x0 series cameras, the Nikon D810A has very good build quality, and the camera gives excellent handling with a solid metal body...

Nikon D810A


The D810A is the universe's first high resolution, full-frame DSLR built specifically for shooting astro images. We find out more...

The D810A is a far more advanced model than any previous astro-DSLR, and is really the only choice for serious astrophotographers. The obvious downside over Canon’s 60Da is that it offers less reach on account of the larger sensor, though the 36.3MP...

Nikon D810A dSLR reaches for the stars


Given the huge interest in astrophotography these days -- then again, maybe it's just us -- I'm surprised at how few cameras have been retrofitted for it in the past few years. The only current model from a major manufacturer thus far has been the...

Nikon has not yet released pricing or availability information for the US, but it'll go on sale at the end of May in the UK for £3,000, which roughly converts to around $4,500 or AU$5,900.

Nikon D810A Review


While Canon seems to have taken a page from Nikon's playbook with its twin versions of the 5DS and 5DS R (one with and without an anti-aliasing filter) like the D800 and D800E, Nikon's now using one from Canon's. Enter the Nikon D810A, a new...

This specialized DSLR, aimed at hobbyist and professional astrophotographers as well as for other scientific applications, is set to be available in late May 2015 with a list price of US$3799.95, about a $500 premium over the standard version's price...

NIKON D810A DSLR Camera - Black, Body Only


I bought tnis camera to tepkave a Nikon d610. The camera has excellent image quality, and it extremely comfortable to hold. There are a number of additional features which help to get the correct exposure.

Slightly heavier than other cameras but being easier to hold and more comfortable the additional weight is hardly noticable.

NIKON D810A DSLR Camera - Black, Body Only


Designed for astronomy and does a much better job of recording feint nebulae than a standard camera. It can also be used for normal photography with excellent colour reproduction and sharpness. Has a lovely shutter action - quiet and smooth.
