NIKON PROMO - Add the Nikon 70-300 VR Lens for $549 when purchased at the same time as a D810 (body or kit). Offer ends Mar 2.
The new Nikon D810 features a 36.3-megapixel FX-CMOS sensor, designed without an optical low-pass filter, an ISO range of 64 to 12800 (extendable from 32 up to 51200 equivalent), and an Expeed 4 image processor (the same image processing engine as used in the D4S).
The D810 has a multi-cam 3500FX 51-point AF system, which enables full-resolution images to be made at up to 5 fps, and, in DX crop mode, the camera can take 15.3-MP images at up to 7 fps. The new ‘group area AF’ mode offers improved background isolation.
The LCD monitor is 3.2" with 1229k-dot resolution. Live view split-screen zoom allows users to check levelling and sharpness, while the second-generation ‘picture control system’ provides tools for making before and after adjustments, including sharpening, contrast, brightness, hue, clarity, and saturation. New settings include the ‘clarity’ and ‘flat’ settings, the latter preserving detail and tonal information in both highlights and shadows.
RAW Size S file format delivers 12-bit uncompressed Nikon NEF files, for faster image transfer, while a new electronic front-curtain shutter is designed to minimise internal vibrations, and so reduce the risk of micro-blur.
The D810 raises the bar in video recording by offering full HD (1080p) movies in FX- and DX-format at 50/60p frame rates. 3D noise reduction reduces noise, distortion, and flicker when filming at high sensitivities, and ‘Zebra mode’ reveals blown highlights.
