Nikon has unveiled its latest much rumored, successor to the D700, the Nikon D800 DSLR Camera. The latest camera is being called enthusiast/pro-level DSLR.
The new camera packs a 36.3 megapixel (7360 x 4912 resolutions) full frame CMOS image sensor. The D800 also employs a unique 910,000 RGB matrix metering mode coupled up with a 51 point AF system to meet the demanding standards of commercial photography. The D800 is pretty cool at just 5.7 inches wide, 4.8 inches tall and 3.2 inches deep.
Other features include Native ISO 100 to ISO 6400, Comprehensive high-fidelity audio recording control, live view output on external monitors, integrated image sensor cleaning system, EXPEED 3 image-processing engine, Advanced Scene Recognition System, Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor module, High dynamic range (HDR), (3.2 inch) 921k-dot LCD monitor, and High-speed CF and SD dual card slots. The humongous pixel count is supplemented by video recording at full HD resolution (1920×1080 at 30, 25 and 24 fps) and 720p (1280×720 at 60, 50, 30 and 25 fps). A 3.5mm stereo mic jack also supports recording audio with an external microphone.
The Nikon D800 will go on sale in the US sometime in late March 2012 for $2,995. A second version of the D800, called the Nikon D800E, will also arrive in April for an estimated retail price of $3299.95. We’ll keep you update.
