The Nikon D810 DSLR Camera takes its place as the high resolution option. It features a 36.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor without an Optical Low Pass Filter for sharp and detailed still imaging.
With the addition of the EXPEED 4 Image Processor, performance speed is increased compared to the EXPEED 3 and noise is effectively reduced throughout the ISO range.
Continuous shooting speed in FX format is 5 fps and in DX format is a maximum of 7 fps. The Full HD video capabilities of the D810 have been upgraded to include 1080p capture at 24, 30 and 60 fps. The improved efficiency of the processor enables up to 1200 shots on one battery charge and 40 minutes of video recording.
The advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor offers 51 AF points with 15 cross-type sensors and Group Area AF enables five AF sensors to be used as one group. This is useful when shooting subjects that cannot be tracked easily by one AF point due to lighting conditions.
The D810 features recording in both FX and DX formats including simultaneous recording to memory cards and an external recorder as well as recording 60p output to an external recorder. The ISO range for video has also been expanded to run from ISO 64 to 12,800 and expand to 51,200.
A 3.2″ LCD with 1,229K-dot resolution provides playback viewing and live view, and improved coatings on the optical viewfinder components provide brighter images and more accurate colors.
With Live View function now includes split screen display zoom for stills, and zebra highlighting display in video mode. Full aperture metering during live view for still shooting is supported.
The EXPEED 4 processor provides 30% faster performance over the EXPEED 3 as well improved low noise imaging throughout the ISO range. Support for 1080p video capture at 60 fps is featured and the processor’s increased efficiency enables up to 1200 still shots and 40 minutes of video recording per charge.
Versatile AF Modes of 9, 21, and 51 points and 3D tracking enable fast, precise auto focus control. AF sensitivity down to -2 EV is effective in low light and sensors of 15 cross-type are compatible with AF NIKKOR lenses and open aperture of f/5.6 or faster.
In FX mode, the D810 can shoot up to 5 fps, and in DX mode it can capture up to 7 fps when utilizing the MB-D12 battery grip with AA batteries.
In addition to standard, neutral, portrait and landscape, image control options have been expanded to include Flat Picture Control which is geared for shooting in RAW modes and for video capture when adjustments will be made in post-production.
Video recording is supported in both FX and DX formats with an ISO range from 64 to 12,800 and expandable to 51, 200.
Simultaneous recording to memory cards is now supported. Auto ISO adjustment is possible in manual mode for smooth exposure transitions. Nikon’s 3D noise reduction reduces random noise, distortion, and flicker when filming at high sensitivities.
A built-in stereo microphone as well as jacks for external microphone and headphones are provided. You can fine-tune audio levels in isolation both before and during recording and select the sound range (wide/voice).
A high resolution LCD provides detailed playback viewing and live view capture with color balance and brightness control. A split screen display zoom for still shooting.
