Nikon D800 36 3 MP CMOS FX Format Digital SLR Camera Body Only

The Nikon D800 CMOS FX-Format Digital Camera boasts a resolution of 36.3 MP. This is the type of resolution that, on a bright day, would allow you to see a bee buzzing around a rose petal and give you the ability to not only have bee in perfect focus, but also the rose and the early morning dew drops if you are shooting at that hour.

Let's face it, a body that delivers a 36.3MP FX-format (35.9 by 24 mm) image through a CMOS sensor is the camera body to beat in "horsepower" race that seems to be taking place in the Digital Single Lens Reflex (dSLR) camera market today. Indeed, a just a few weeks ago, we were remarking on the Nikon model that delivered better than 24 MP and now they have jumped what seems to be a whole generation of camera technology to present a body that delivers a 36.3 MP image, something that was truly unheard of as recently as a year ago, unless you were talking about some very high-end cameras that were made for digital filmmakers who needed to shoot what might be considered the proverbial "gnat's eyeball" at 30,000 feet.

The D800 is not only a camera that delivers 1080- high-definition broadcast quality video, it does so with mininized rolling shutter and you have the ability to watch simultaneous live output on external monitors and record uncompressed HDMI video. This is the type of performance that moviemakers expect when they are shooting scenes.

Imagine having a camera about the same size as any other standard dSLR is would mean that body harnesses for steadycam shots could become smaller while the same camera would be nowhere as intrusive into everyday life.

The D800 also offers multi-area Full high-definition digital-moving video recording mode as well as comprehensive high-fidelity audio recording and playback control.

It is true that this is not as small as a standard dSLR at 57.5 by 32.3 by 48.4 but think of this. This is all in a unit that weighs about four pounds.

In truth, this is -- at least now -- really made for the video industry where you need cameras that can handle multiple stereo inputs and output, as well as provide you with peak-reading audio meter displays. It also allows you DX crop mode so that it can use and maximize the wide body of Nikkor lenses that area available (some of the best optics around that feature reduced chroma, optical reflectivity and more). And, the D-800 still deliver 1080p resolution hour after hour of shooting.

Interestingly, the D-800 features an optical low-pass filter in front of its sensors. This filter offers a slight blur that helps to reduced false coloration and other aberrations when you shoot repetitive color imagery.

The D-800 not only cranks out JPEG and TIFF imagery, but it will also turn out RAW or NEF imagery so that video editors can take advantage of it. This is the type of camera that is ideal for not only studio photography, but also commercial photography under a wide range of conditions. It allows the photographers to select and use the lenses they want to use but also to Capture NX2 software for flexibility.

The D-800 is Nikon's top-of-the-line and we think you can see why. Professional videographers will be using this and its successors for many years to come.

Nikon D3X FX Versus Canon EOS 5D Mark II A Comparative Review
If there is a horsepower race going on in the camera world, it has to be between Nikon and Canon as each one tries to outdo the other (and Sony, for that matter) with the mind-boggling numbers that each is capable of.

Canon EOS Rebel T3 12 2 MP CMOS Digital SLR
For my money, the Canon EOS Rebel T3 is probably one of the finest digital single lens reflex (DSLR) available in the under US $500 class. I have to admit a certain fondness for this camera because I have used one extensively to handle many images. And, yes, I know the Nikon and Pentax and Sony and Kodak brigade will be all over me for saying this, but I used to be a died-in-the-wool Pentax user and I have also used Sony and Kodak and Nikon products extensively. Yes, they all have great optics,...

Nikon COOLPIX L26 16 1 MP Digital Camera
When Nikon entered the photographic industry back in the 1960s, more than once the cameras were compared to Rolls-Royce-built cars that were tough, yet could handle with the best on the road and, indeed, a lower-cost version called the Nikkormat debuted that was, if not a Rolls, a good strong Cadillac that could share lenses, filters and films. In the hands of a professional photographer, either camera turned in quality shot after shot with no problem. Notice though, the use of the word...

Nikon D3100 14 2 MP Digital SLR Camera

When Nikon announced that it would be upgrading its D3000 line of digital single lens reflex cameras (dSLRs),...
