Designed for the serious photographer offering 36.3 MP in full-frame format.

The much-anticipated Nikon D800 Digital SLR is designed for the serious photographer offering an astonishing 36.3 megapixels in a full-frame (FX) format, and incorporating many of the crowd-pleasing features of the recently launched flagship D4 Digital SLR camera. The Nikon D800 features a newly developed CMOS sensor with an area of 35.9 x 24mm, a standard ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to a range of 50-25600), the Nikon 51-point advanced AF system, continuous shooting up to 4fps (or up to 6fps when using DX Crop mode), as well as the exciting addition of full 1080p HD movie recording, including many of the revolutionary new video features found in the D4 such as a clean HDMI output. Providing incredible depth and detail in still image photography and broadcast quality video, the D800 is a truly impressive piece of equipment.

Nikon's newest format DSLR with groundbreaking 36.3 megapixels and the powerful EXPEED 3 image-processing engine offers imaging potential that rivals some of the best studio cameras, but with the agility and durability of a Nikon digital SLR body. Depict the slightest change in light or shadow, on a piece of jewelry or in the glow of human skin. Still images reach a completely new height with unprecedented depth and details, both indoors and out.

Nikon's exclusive 91K-pixel RGB sensor enables the Advanced Scene Recognition System to detect human faces even when shooting through the optical viewfinder, adding even more of an edge to your AF, AE and i-TTL flash performance. If your workflow demands broadcast quality video with high-fidelity audio recording, D-Movie will satisfy even the most demanding clients. Moreover, the D800 shoots 1080p Full HD in both FX- and DX-based formats, offering cinematographers total versatility.

The EXPEED 3 image processing engine with 14-bit A/D conversion and 16-bit image processing offers superb tonal gradation. EXPEED 3 manages massive amounts of data at faster speeds than EXPEED 2. Even with specialised processing features like Active D-Lighting and high ISO noise reduction, capture speed is not affected. EXPEED 3 is so powerful that it handles data-intensive tasks such as Full HD video recording at 30p with ease. Still images and videos have minimal noise and even richer colors and tones. In addition to these fundamental advantages, the D800 reduces the kind of color phase shift that some cameras have difficulty with in similar situations.
