Nikon launches new HD-DSLR


Nikon recently announced the arrival of its latest addition to the DSLR market.
The D810 replaces the D800 and D800E and essentially consolidates the
features of both, while adding a few new improvements. The camera includes a
36.3MP full frame FX-format sensor, while the optical low pass filter (OPLF) that
was included in the D800E, and the anti-aliasing filter in the D800, are not
present at all here. The absence of the filters is intended to boost resolution
and dynamic range and could potentially help the camera outperform several
other DSLR on the market in terms of image quality.

The camera is designed to perform under extremely low light conditions. Among
other features being heavily marketed by Nikon are: meticulous autofocus, fast
frame rates and image processing, smaller and more manageable file formats,
and excellent energy efficiency.

Features include:
• 36.3MP Full-frame CMOS sensor (no AA filter)
• ISO 64-12,800 (expands to ISO 32-51,200)
• Electronic first-curtain shutter and redesigned mirror mechanism

• Improved Scene Recognition System allows face detection in OVF
• ‘Split screen zoom’ display in live view allows horizons/lines to be leveled
• 51-point AF system with new ‘Group Area AF’ mode (inherited from D4S)

• New ‘flat’ Picture Control mode (intended to appeal to videographers)
• Auto ISO available in manual exposure mode
• Zebra strips for focus checking in video mode
