    Speed and power, without compromise. Thats how Id sum up my impressiono the new Nikon D800. Established medium-ormat image quality isnow inside a phenomenal, incredibly responsive Nikon machine. At 36.3megapixels, the D800 produces unprecedented image quality and resolution

    within a body that boasts revolutionary technological advances. The 3D colormatrix metering III, wide dynamic range and the improved AF perormancein low light are just a ew eatures that are glaring improvements. The D800allows me to concentrate on the light, the composition and my subjectwithout having to think about much else. In years past, wedding photographywas traditionally captured with medium-ormat equipment or maximumimage quality. When the 35mm ormat was adopted within the genre, it waswidely accepted that image quality was compromised in lieu o speed andconvenience. Now, my wedding portraiture will have a depth its never shownbeore, and my style o shooting will be enhanced rather than compromised,thanks to the D800.

    When Im shooting beauty and jewelry in the studio or ashion on location,36.3 megapixels changes the industry standard: in image quality, dynamicrange, color rendering and the nal print. The detail rom the D800 producesthe look o a medium-ormat camera, but gives me the eel and response o aD-SLR. The improvements in rendering skin tone and specular highlights, aswell as abric and hair detail are superior to anything that has come beore.Autoocus quickly tracks models in motion. Nikons 91K-pixel RGB sensorhas noticeable improvements in metering accuracy, while the larger LCD iseasier to read. The camera body eels solid and ergonomically simple, whilealso eeling lighter and smaller than previous high-resolution Nikons. Newcameras always inspire me to test and explore, and all the useul eaturesin such a compact package will open huge creative possibilities or my high-quality prints and video.

    To me, cameras are more like paintbrushes than technology. The goal isnot megapixels or technique but the image, and while camera modelsare important, they are not the be-all or end-all. But ater a lietime usingcountless cameras, I have ound a new best riend. It was not love at rstsight. The sharpness and detail were initially intimidating, exposing my fawslike never beore. Subtle camera movements showed and dierences oacuity between aperture choices on various lenses were apparent. But now Iam enthralled with this technology. Why? Because the images almost eel asthough they were made with a 4x5 view camera! Special eatures like time-lapse photography and the improved HD video quality and fexibility also addtremendously to the cameras personality. Ater spending a month with theD800, Ill never be the same again. Perhaps the best compliment I can expressis that now I will think dierently about the images I make.

    As a modern architectural photographer I am always looking or a lightweight,compact and reliable camera system ullling the requirements o my personalartistic and client expectations. The Nikon D800 will set new standards orthe high-end 35mm D-SLR market. I have never worked with a 35mm digital

    camera that produces images with such exceptional quality and detail tillnow. Particularly, the live view mode enables extremely precise compositionsand easy ocusing in dim lighting, which simplies my workfow. Superiorquality lenses such as the PC NIKKOR tilt & shit lineup are indispensable orarchitectural photography. From my hands-on experience I ound that theyperectly match with the newly invented system and produce breathtakinglyclean, clear and sharp les. This camera gives me the photographic fexibilityto work at unusual shooting locations and capture images in an exceptionalrange o light. It denitely takes my photographic versatility and image qualityto a new level. What a new companion!

    High-megapixel still images are detail-rich

    but data-heavy. With the D800, however,you dont have to sacrice speed or this

    privilege. Dedicated to understanding

    speed and its role in image making, Nikon

    engineers designed a powerul EXPEED 3

    image-processing engine exclusively or

    digital SLRs. From image processing and

    card recording to image playback and

    image transer, EXPEED 3 manages massive amounts o

    data at aster speeds than EXPEED 2. Even with specialized

    processing eatures like Active D-Lighting and high ISO noise

    reduction, capture speed is not aected. EXPEED 3 is so

    powerul that it handles data-intensive tasks such as Full

    HD video recording at 30p with ease. Youll also notice the

    dierence in your still images and videos through minimized

    noise and even richer colors and tones. In addition to these

    undamental advantages, the D800 reduces the kind o

    color phase shit that some cameras have diculty with in

    similar situations.

    High-megapixel sensors can really test the quality o your

    lenses, but you can be condent that the combination o

    brilliant NIKKOR lenses and Nikons intelligent processing

    measures will signicantly reduce lateral chromatic aberration

    to give you incredibly natural-looking results. Unlike other

    correction methods that simply eliminate chromatic

    aberration, Nikons method compensates or these color

    dierences in a resolving index or each color, making it

    particularly eective in producing images with stunning edge-

    to-edge sharpness. Moreover, because these corrections

    are made regardless o the NIKKOR lens used, this eature

    contributes substantially to achieving the sharpest images


    Tonal gradation is where an image transorms rom sim

    representing lie to taking on a lie o its own. The D800

    exactly that, with cutting-edge image processing that in

    vital energy into your images. Black is rendered as pitch

    black, and shadow details are subtle and rich. Even und

    harsh, high-contrast light, where some cameras can ai

    D800s gradation remains smooth with abundant detail

    tone all the way up the scale to pure white.

    Resolution, color and dy namic range: the perect trinity

    The D800 renders levels o texture, nuance and detail to your

    photography that, until now, have been the exclusive domain

    o the complicated medium-ormat system. Dene every

    eyelash, every line in tree bark, and every shimmer o light.

    Savor the exceptional depth in your still images with the

    astounding 36.3 eective megapixels, you can. Enlarge them

    as big as A1 poster-sized prints (59.4 x 84.1 cm/23.4 x 33.1 in.)at 200 dpi, or crop aggressively to reach the composition you

    desire, all without sacricing the detail and tonal range o the

    original. In order to maintain clean, high-resolution images,

    14-bit A/D conversion within the sensor and a high signal-to-

    noise ratio deliver phenomenal images in a diverse array o

    situations. The image sensors incredible potential does not

    stop with photography, either. For cinematographers ready to

    put their exceptionally sharp NIKKOR lenses into action, the

    D800s 36.3 eective megapixel data is eciently processed

    or exquisite 1080p broadcast quality video at 30p.

    Combining both high-resolution perormance and a wide

    ISO sensitivity range has nally become a reality. Nikon

    engineers have developed intelligent new methods to

    manipulate light transmission to the sensors photodiodes:

    rom the optical low-pass lter and on-chip gapless microlenses to the image sensors internal design, every measure

    has been taken to maximize and improve light transmission

    in order to deliver crisp, brilliant images with signicantly

    less noise. All this is possible under a wide variety o lighting

    conditions, enabling you to get the most out o your NIKKOR


    High-resolution, studio-quality images shouldnt be restricted

    to the studio. The D800 sets a new benchmark or high-

    resolution D-SLR cameras, with crisp clean images

    across a wide ISO range. Flexibility like this opens up new

    imaging opportunities or both still photographers and

    cinematographers alike during the magic hour, the time

    just beore dawn or at dusk when available light is otenbeautiul but scarce. Even at high ISO settings, the cameras

    intelligent noise reduction systems manage noise without

    sacricing ne details, giving the D800 the edge. The

    dierence can even be seen in low-contrast subjects such as

    hair and grass textures, which are oten essential elements

    o cinema as well as high-resolution portraits and landscape

    images. High image quality at higher ISOs also means

    that you can shoot still images handheld more condently,

    knowing that ast shutter speeds will reduce blur.

    Reducing alse color and moir is the main job o the optical

    low-pass lter located in ront o the image sensor. However,

    this benet is generally gained with a small sacrice o

    sharpness. Moir occurs in scenes containing repetitive

    details, such as strong vertical lines in architecture. Finding

    the right balance between benets and sacrices is the keyto higher image quality, and that is what the D800s optical

    low-pass lter delivers. As a result, the astounding 36.3

    megapixels unleash their potential through an optimized

    balance between sharpness and eectively prevented moir

    and alse color. Furthermore, the multi-layer structure o the

    D800 low-pass lter utilizes layers o antirefective coating

    that have been optimized or the camera, contributing to

    sharper and clearer images.

    Nikons revolutionary Advanced Scene

    Recognition System, introduced with the

    fagship D4 camera, is also employed in the

    D800. At its core is a 91K-pixel RGB sensor

    that meticulously analyzes each scene

    with the ne resolution. The RGB sensor

    can recognize your scenes colors and

    brightness with unprecedented precision,

    then use that inormation to implement various automatic

    controls and give you more natural-looking results. The real

    breakthrough, however, is that the sensor can detect human

    aces with startling accuracy when shooting through the

    optical viewnder. Along with ace detection, detailed scene

    analysis is utilized to support more accurate autoocus, auto

    exposure and i-TTL fash exposure results in a diverse range

    o compositional and lighting

    situations. The improved subject

    tracking is most noticeable

    when using 3D-tracking, whichcan maintain a ocus on moving

    subjects smaller in size than

    with previous generations.

    Auto-area AF and 3D-tracking are AF-area modes unique

    to Nikon that use your subjects color and brightnessinormation to detect ocus. With the D800 and its more

    precise inormation and subject recognition advancements,

    expect big steps orward or both AF-area modes when

    taking high-quality still images. In auto-area AF, the camera

    can genuinely detect human aces and ocuses on them

    immediately useul when aces are a priority and theres

    no time to choose ocus points. When using 3D-tracking,

    the sensors ne resolution combines with a specically

    optimized AF algorithm to realize unprecedented subject

    tracking precision, recognizing detailed patterns to keep your

    subject in sharp ocus.

    Proessional photographers who shoot still images know that

    Nikons metering system delivers supremely well-balanced

    exposures. Thanks to the 91K-pixel RGB sensor, the D800

    has ar more detailed scene inormation at its disposal

    including detected ace inormation. This data helps the

    3D color matrix metering III deliver more desirable auto

    exposures, especially when there are human aces present.

    When the D800 recognizes a human ace in a backlit

    situation, the camera determines the overall exposure while

    prioritizing the acial exposure, which might otherwise be

    underexposed. When a ace is lit rom the ront and appears

    much brighter than the background, the camera recognizes

    the situation and avoids blowing out the acial details.

    Nikons i-TTL system has long been considered the

    most accurate fash control system in photography,but now ace detection and highlight analysis by

    the 91K-pixel RGB sensor pushes perormance

    even urther. With the D800s enhanced

    i-TTL balanced ll-fash, you can more

    precisely illuminate peoples aces in relation

    to their surrounding brightness using either the built-in fash

    or an external hot-shoed Nikon Speedlight. For weddings

    and ashion shoots, or any photography that

    relies on the highest-quality still images, this

    new standard redenes what a fash system

    should be. Face detection also makes a

    dierence when Active D-Lighting is used to

    retain highlights and shadows in high-contrast

    lighting situations. Faces will be optimally

    exposed both in the sun and in the shade.

    The D800s auto white balance is incredibly accurate in

    diverse range o shooting situations, aided by unique Ntechnology that eectively identies your light sources,

    natural and articial. With the 91K-pixel RGB sensor and

    image sensor working together, the camera renders w

    as white with supreme accuracy. Or i you preer, the a

    white balance can be set to refect the warmth o amb

    incandescent lighting.

    Accurate AF detection is crucial

    or extremely high-resolution still

    images in every situation. The

    51 sensor points in the D800s

    AF sensor module work down to

    -2 EV (ISO 100, 20C/68F), the

    approximate physical limit o human

    visibility through an optical viewnder. For even more

    powerul detection, you can rely on the cameras 15 cross-

    type sensors in the center to detect both vertical and

    horizontal lines when using any AF NIKKOR lenses o /5.6

    or aster. Whats more, AF can be

    activated with eleven ocus points

    in the center with open aperture

    o /8*, which is a big plus when

    you combine a telephoto lens

    with a 2.0x teleconverter to shoot

    distant subjects.

    *Cross-type sensor is limited to the centerAF point only. AF may not be achieved in low-

    contrast or low-light conditions.

    Whether its a still lie, a portrait, a landscape or a candi

    street scene, your subject matter varies, but its importa

    doesnt. Thats why the D800 oers our AF-area mode

    each specically tailored to adapt to various subjects. S

    point AF is ideal when you need pinpoint ocus on stati

    subjects. Dynamic-area AF has three options (9-point,

    21-point and 51-point) and is ideal or shooting moving

    subjects. The selected AF point and the surrounding po

    keep your subject in sharp ocus even i it briefy leaves

    selected points. 3D-tracking allows you to maintain oc

    subjects that are moving erratically rom side to side. A

    latest UDMA 7. The SD card slot

    is compatible with SDXC (Secure

    Digital eXtended Capacity) and UHS-I. You can also use twocards simultaneously or a number o unctions, such as

    recording JPEG and RAW data on separate cards, recording the

    same data simultaneously on two cards or backup and more.

    For a more productive tethered and transer workfow, the

    D800 is compatible with USB 3.0. When connected to

    equipment eaturing USB 2.0, speed is reduced to that o

    USB 2.0.

    The D800s shutter unit has been tested to well over

    200,000 cycles o release to prove durability and precision.

    While the shutter unit designed to run at a speed range o

    1/8,000 to 30 s, its intelligent sel-diagnostic shutter monitor

    automatically monitors actual

    shutter speeds in order to correct

    possible variances that can occur

    over time.

    For true digital SLR

    excellence, the cameras

    mechanical structure, power

    and precision are vital to

    ensure indispensable speed

    and reliability. Thats why

    Nikon utilized its engineering

    expertise to rene the

    powerul sequential control

    mechanism that drives the

    shutter, mirror, and aperture independently. As a result,

    shutter release can be operated with mirror-up position

    during live view. Because mirror-down movement is no

    required, you can expect even quieter still live view sho

    And as power aperture control operates via the steppin

    motor, the sound o mechanical adjustment is reduced

    quieter and smoother control.

    A comprehensive re-working o the D800s circuits now

    enables approx. 900 shots* o still image

    shooting. All on one charge o an EN-EL15

    Rechargeable Li-ion Battery.

    *Based on CIPA Standards.

    Attach the MB-D12 to the

    camera body to extend

    battery stamina. The pack

    accommodates a variety o

    batteries (see specications)

    and utilizes the same integral magnesium alloy constru

    and weather sealing as the D800 body itsel. You also g

    MB-D12 has its own dedicated shutter-release button a

    command dials or vertical composition shooting.

    *When using batteries other than EN-EL15 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery.

    The D800 is designed to respond immediately. Once the

    strategically located switch is turned on, the camera starts

    up in approx. 0.12 seconds* and your nger is in position

    or shutter release. Release time lag is minimized to

    approx. 0.042 seconds*, equivalent to that o the D3S, with

    continuous approx. 4 ps capability in FX ormat, approx.

    5 ps in 1.2x and DX ormat and approx. 6 ps capability in DX

    ormat** with MB-D12.

    *Based on CIPA Guidelines.

    **When used together with batteries other than EN-EL15.

    The D800s large and sharp color LCD monitor

    delivers bright, crisp image playback with

    a much larger capacity or accurate color

    reproduction. Using an antirefective structure,

    you can count on clarity equal to that o the

    D4, even under bright conditions. Moreover, imonitor brightness is set to Auto, the camera

    automatically adjusts LCD brightness according

    to the environmental lighting conditions

    measured by the ambient brightness sensor,

    allowing easy use o live view in both bright and

    low-lit places very useul when shooting video

    and stills. The ability to magniy playback images

    up to 46x (Large-size images in FX ormat) is

    extremely helpul or spot ocus conrmation.

    Many important parts o the D800 have been designedto achieve better durability and lighter weight. The result

    is a camera approx. 10% lighter than the D700, yet just

    as rugged. A magnesium alloy construction

    protects the sophisticated technologies

    against accidental shock, and weather and

    dust sealing has been extensively applied and

    severely tested, making the D800 as reliable

    on the road as it is in the studio.

    Nikon engineers have developed a unique alternative or those seeking the ultimate

    in denition. The D800E incorporates an optical lter with all the anti-aliasing

    properties removed in order to acilitate the sharpest images possible.

    This is an ideal tool or photographers who can control light, distance and their

    subjects to the degree where they can mitigate the occurrence o moir. Aside

    rom the optical lter, all unctions and eatures are the same as on the D800.

    Note: The D800E carries an increased possibility that moir and alse color will appear, compared to the D800.IR cut and antirefective coating properties o the optical lter remain the same with both versions.
