The Japanese maker of digital cameras Nikon has announced a new digital camera known as D810. The new camera is the company’s latest mid-range FX-format digital SLR.
The new camera measures 146 x 123 x 81.5 mm, weighs 980 grams and arrives to replace both the D800 and D800E cameras. The specs are impressive – the D810 sports a 36.3 MP sensor with no low-pass filter, unlike the earlier Nikon D800E but there’s more to it too. It has ISO sensitivity between 64 and 12 800 and a powerful Nikon Expeed 4 image processor. The specs list continues with a large 3.2-inch OLED LCD display at 1.229 MP, a Nikon Multi-CAM 3500FX auto focus system, Wi-Fi, a USB 3.0 port, a slot for CF (UDMA 7) and SD (SDXC and UHS-1) cards and a lithium-ion EN-EL15 battery that packs enough power for up to 1200 shots.
The Nkon D810 also supports 4K shooting as well as Full HD video recording at 50 or 60 FPS. The mirror mechanism has been redesigned and there’s an electronic first-curtain shutter option to reduce the risk of “shutter shake” reducing resolution.
The camera will be available in late July but the price is rather high – it will be yours for EUR 3229.
