  • Conclusion: Are 36.3 megapixels overdoing it? Experts say no way. In tests, the Nikon D800 balances record-breaking high-def detail with great color, clarity and everything else that makes images look splendid.
  • Pros: Unheard-of resolution, Outstanding images, even in low light, Dual CF/SD card slots, Sharp HD video
  • Cons: Slow burst shooting, Clunky user settings

12 September 2013
  • Summary: Our impressions on the new Nikon D800 are very positive. The changes that Nikon has made make it a major improvement over the previous D700. What is appreciated is the feeling of holding a product of the top for quality of the captured images, both for details and for color fidelity, but especially...
  • Pros: Very high resolution, Light body, Quality / Price Ratio.

  • Pros: Film SLR owner who hasn't gone digital. As I noted, we're clearly beyond film now. The D800 models are better than shooting with an F100, in almost every respect. The reason why we still have film holdouts isn't because of quality, though, it's because of workflow. The D800 models do nothing to h...

  • Conclusion: If you've got to have a video-capable Nikon, this is the best we've seen to date. But D800 video is obviously limited by technical issues (aliasing/moire), and feature omissions (peaking!).

  • Conclusion: Overall, the Nikon D800 is a gentlemanly camera, one that is true to all that its external appearance and demeanor promise. It is big and burly, with a solid feel appropriate of a professional tool.
  • Pros: Solid build, Excellent controls, positioned well, 51-point AF, Extremely high resolution, Excellent image quality, Excellent dynamic range, Surprising high ISO performance, DX crop mode produces 15.4-megapixel images, Automatic CA reduction, Optional Vignette and Distortion correction (for most D...

22 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The full-frame Nikon D800 manages to deliver 36 megapixels of resolution, without sacrificing image quality at high ISOs. It only shoots 4 frames per second, but that should be sufficient for event photographers, landscape shooters, and well-heeled enthusiasts.
  • Pros: Excellent high ISO performance. High-resolution full-frame sensor. Fast focus and performance. Excellent viewfinder.
  • Cons: Slower to focus in Live View. Must initiate autofocus manually during video recording.

  • Excerpt: Mastering the Nikon D800 is author and pro photographer Darrell Young's latest in his Mastering the Nikon series as of this review date. Young has specialized in this book series and has several very well received titles under his belt including Mastering the Nikon D90, Mastering the Nikon D300,...
  • Pros: Every copy of Mastering the Nikon D800 comes with a coupon page containing a discount code for 50% off the Gold membership level at Nikonians.org. I've been a Nikonians member for years - the membership discount is a great deal and a nice little spiff. Darrell Young has made a dedicated effort ov...
  • Cons: No lay-flat binding, so you're going to need a sturdy bookmark. Frankly, I'd rather have a spiral-bound edition even though that sort of finished print product is kind of sloppy looking. No downloadable ebook edition to accompany the print edition as of the date of this review. An ebook edition f...
