Nikon D810 launched new 36.3-megapixel sensor

The Nikon D810 has been launched as the replacement to the Nikon D800 and D800E, offering a new 36.3-megapixel sensor.

Although that’s the same resolution as the old models, Nikon has done away with the low-pass optical filter for the Nikon D810.  

“Feedback from professional photographers has been integral to the development of this product, upping the game of high resolution photography,” said Simon Iddon, Group Product Manager for Nikon’s DSLR products.

“Significant increases in speed and ISO versatility, along with new features that minimise the camera’s internal vibrations during shooting for incredible stability, make the Nikon D810 the ultimate tool for visionary photographers working across a broad range of genres.”

Nikon D810 Features
The Nikon D810 features a new FX-format sensor that is designed without an optical low-pass filter to improve image and video detail. The DSLR has a natural ultra-wide native ISO range (ISO 64 to 12800) or you can even extend it to ISO 32 – 51200.

For precise shots, even when your subject is in motion, the Nikon D810 has a Multi-CAM 3500FX 51-point auto focus system. Plus it can shoot continuous images at a rate of 5fps at full resolution or 15.3-megapixel images at 7fps in DX crop mode.

That matches the Nikon D4S and the D810 comes with the same EXPEED 4 image processor too.

As for movies, the D810 shoots full 1080p HD movies at 50/60p frame rates, with ISO sensitivity ranging from 64 to 51200 equivalent in manual mode.

Another new feature for the Nikon D810 is its second-generation Picture Control System, which offers tools before and after the shoot to give you more control for sharpness, brightness, contrast, saturation and clarity among other things.

The new Live View split-screen zoom also lets you check the sharpness and levelling of your shots. You’ll be able to view your image on the 3.2-inch 1299k dot colour tuned LCD screen too.

Nikon D810 Release Date and Price
The Nikon D810 will go on sale on July 17 with a body only price of £2699.99.
