Nikon D810 review

 

The replacement for the D800 and D800E promises to deliver even more detail

High pixel count ; No anti-aliasing filter for better detail resolution ; 5fps shooting at full-resolution

Huge file sizes ; No Wi-Fi built-in ; Moire interference be more of an issue

Ratings in depth Nikon's D800 and D800E caused great excitement when they were first announced in February 2012 largely because of their groundbreaking 36 million pixel count. These two full-frame SLR cameras are identical apart from the fact that the...

Nikon D810 review

 

Landmark cameras come along every once in a while. In 2012 it was the super-high-resolution Nikon D800 that astounded us. We couldn't quite believe how much this 36.3-megapixel full-frame beast defied our initially doubtful expectations.

Huge images can offer epic quality, sturdy weather-sealed build, excellent autofocus system in single or continuous autofocus

Where’s the 4K video?, single SD slot (single CF slot), slower shutter speed deficiencies are amplified due to resolution

Rather than look at the D810 like a small upgrade to the D800, we've been impressed with what this camera can do. So much that we consider it to be Nikon's best DSLR camera.

Nikon D810 review - first look, release date and UK price

 

We take a look at Nikon's brand-new high-end DSLR

Nikon will make the D810 available from 26th July, with the body-only model due to cost £2,700. We don't have a price for a kit yet, but expect to see a variety of deals available.

Nikon D810 review

 

Nikon's new top-end DLSR is all about image quality - but is it missing too many techy features?

Superb image quality and dynamic range ; Great handling and control ; Super-fast focusing

No 4K video ; Missing a few extra features ; Not a huge improvement over D800E

It may not have every trendy feature under the sun, but there's no arguing with the Nikon D810's superb performance and image quality.

Nikon D810

 

One of the most important new DSLRs of the year

Fantastic image quality ; Fast and accurate autofocus ; Superb dynamic range

No inbuilt Wi-Fi ; No 4K video capture ; Not a huge upgrade over the D800E

It’ll do the trick for more casual daytime shooting, although the screen doesn’t flip out as it does on many lesser cameras. To be fair – you’d look pretty silly shooting selfies with the Nikon D810.
