SO MANY PIXELS! – Nikon D810 Review – DigiDIRECT TV Ep 084

This week on DDTV,  Blunty checks out the Nikon D810… a 36Mp Resolution DSLR… that’s SO MANY PIXELS YOU GUYS!

The Nikon D810 Digital SLR Camera offers the latest FX-format CMOS 36.3Mp sensor and the powerful EXPEED 4 image-processing engine for outstanding image quality”

The D810 boasts 14-bit A/D conversion and 16-bit image processing with an ISO range of 64-12800 that’s expandable to ISO 32-51200 equivalent. What’s more, the camera’s Nikon F mount accepts a multitude of NIKKOR lenses, included DX lenses and AF-S lenses; and Nikon Speedlights provide exceptional flash capabilities

The D810’s Advanced Scene Recognition System with a 91k-pixel RGB sensor brings out precise, accurate colours in every scene, for natural-looking results. Face detection and a detailed scene analysis support more accurate autofocus, auto exposure, and i-TTL flash exposure for any number of compositional and lighting situations. When combined with auto-area AF and subject tracking in 3D-tracking, your images are even more fine-tuned. In addition, the 3D color matrix metering III feature results in pleasing auto exposures, especially when human faces are in the scene.

The D810 utilises Nikon’s i-TTL system, for supreme accuracy and balance. When combined with Nikon’s Speedlights, high-quality stills result. Of course, the camera also has a built-in pop-up flash for those spur-of-the-moment snapshots and other casual pics. The D810 also utilises Nikon’s auto white balance which is equipped for a wide range of shooting situations. The Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor results in sharp images, even in low-light and the four AF-area modes give you the versatility you need to shoot everything from stills to street scenes to landscapes and more.

When it comes to HD movie capture, the D810 shoots broadcast quality video in two D-Movie formats at 1080/60p full HD. The D810 captures movies in FX and DX movie formats. The FX-based format renders shallow depth of field with beautiful bokeh, while the DX-format uses an image area similar to 35mm movie film, for a look cinematographers are accustomed to. Additional video features include live view operation, the ability to record high-fidelity stereo audio with an external mic, and the option to shoot time-lapse photography and save it as a movie file. Flicker reduction and custom settings enable even more freedom of expression in your movies.
