An FX-format full-frame image sensor design with 36.3-megapixels and no optical low-pass filter is paired with Nikon's innovative EXPEED 4 image processing for flawless detail retention from snow white to pitch black, beautiful noise-free images from ISO 64 to ISO 12,800, an extremely wide dynamic range, flattering well-saturated skin tones and much more.

For those seeking the ultimate in D-SLR image quality, the D810 delivers.

The D810 is the full-frame D-SLR that cinematographers, camera operators and multimedia photographers have been waiting for. Bring the camera's remarkable image quality and dynamic range to 1080p videos recorded at 60/50/30/25/24p uncompressed to an external device, compressed to an internal CF/SD card or both simultaneously. Move between dark and light scenes without any iris or frame-rate adjustments thanks to ISO Auto Adjust. Smoothly change a shot's depth of field with power iris control.

The D810 performs with astounding speed and precision. Capture 5 fps at full resolution and in 5:4 crop mode, 6 fps in 1:2 crop mode and 7 fps in DX-crop mode*. Enjoy tack-sharp focus—crucial in high-resolution images—thanks to an Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX AF sensor that uses 51 focus points, including 15 cross-type sensors, 11 of which work all the way to f/8, plus a new Group Area AF. Internal vibration has been nearly eliminated with a newly designed sequencer mechanism and Electronic Front Curtain Shutter system. You can even quickly spot-check your focus by zooming in 46x on the large 3.2-inch 1,229k-dot display with RGBW alignment and monitor highlights during video capture with zebra striping right in the display. The D810 is as nimble as it is precise.

D810 - An Elegant Update

By: Photomagica
This is a first impressions review - having worked with the D810 for a day alongside a D800 as part of an aerial photography project.. Several hundred frames later I have some observations that may be useful if you are considering the D810.

First the image quality is indeed impeccable. My files are incredibly sharp and detailed. However to achieve all the detail the sensor will deliver requires careful technique and truly excellent lenses.

The sensor does not have the anti-aliasing filter that reduces moire patterns when photographing striped or grid patterns. I did get some moire when photographing the linear patterns of metal roofs from 1000 feet altitude. For my work I don't consider this a problem, however if you are shooting a lot of fabrics close up or other patterns that could moire, then the D800 or the Canon 5D MkIII would be better choices as these have anti-aliasing filters.

The D810 body is not a large departure from the D800 or D800e, however it is just slightly smaller and sculpted in a subtly more comfortable and ergonomic way. I always regarded my D800 as a bit bulky and clunky for a DSLR. While the D810 doesn't look that much different, in use the added compactness and the re-sculpting makes for a more appealing experience.

The D810 viewing screen has more pixels than the D800 and this makes for a much better live view or image review experience. Personally I considered the D800 viewing screen just barely acceptable. The D810 screen happily corrects that problem.

There are some control differences; none that make the camera dramatically better to use or so different from the D800 that switching or using the D810 alongside a D800 is an issue. The most important functional difference for me is the reduced mirror slap of the D810 compared to the D800. This is a welcome change for those of us desiring to wring every pixel of quality out of the sensor.

In summary the D810 has taken everything good about the D800 and delivered it in a more elegantly and ergonomically designed package with technical upgrades that let users take fuller advantage of the amazing sensor.
