Summary: The Nikon D800 has impressive specifications but that is just the beginning. Its 36 MP sensor with ISO 50-25600 sensitivity is capable of shooting at 4 FPS and capturing full 1080p HD. It includes a 51-point autofocus system and all features expected from a professional DSLR, including a large 100% coverage viewfinder and sturdy weatherproof body with dual control-dials.
Pros: Considerably higher resolution than peers, Very low image noise, Good color-accuracy, Excellent dynamic-range, Very fast autofocus, Quite fast and responsive, Ultra-short black-out, Flexible self-timer and exposure delay, Very sharp LCD, Highly customizable with plenty of controls, Dual memory cards can provide instant backup, Excellent build quality, Manual focus assist direction indicator
Cons: Sharpening introduces artifacts quickly, Some under-exposure, Poor AWB indoors, Increased softness at ISO 3200+, Strong anti-alias filter, EC button placement not ideal, Asymmetric card slots, Highly inconsistent Live-view, Bizarre, Exposure Delay, Highly sensitive to lens performance
Conclusion: Saying the Nikon D800 is a very good camera is as easy as saying “Breaking Bad” is great television series — both are slam dunks. Now buying the D800 — due to expense and commitment required — is a serious decision. Supplies for the camera are very tight, so don’t expect to buy it for less than the $2,999 list price, if you can find one at all. And high-quality Nikkor lenses are a must — primes and zooms.
Pros: 36.3-megapixel full-frame DSLR, Records full HD 1080p videos, Has more options than you possibly imagine
Cons: Expensive and heavy, Noisy at higher ISOs, Definitely for serious shutterbugs
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.
Summary: The Nikon D800E, at low ISOs and optimum lens apertures, offers slightly higher resolution than its less expensive sibling, the D800. Its raw files respond impressively to a moderately aggressive sharpening routine, while avoiding visible artifacts. As with the D800, it offers the (somewhat clunky) option to output uncompressed video, but is noticeably susceptible to color moiré in video mode.
Pros: Class-leading image resolution at 36.3 MP (with the D800E offering slightly superior resolution), Outstanding high ISO performance in both JPEG and Raw files, High quality JPEG images at default settings (with the D800E offering slightly superior detail), Wide dynamic range Raw files, Consistently pleasing metering and white balance results, Very solid build quality and good ergonomics / handling, Fast, responsive camera when adjusting settings, Greatly improved live ...
Cons: Relatively slow 4 fps continuous shooting in FX mode (6 fps with optional battery grip in DX mode), Slow AF in live view and video modes (compared to phase-detection), Rear LCD prone to glare in bright sunlight, despite new design, Fine detail in live view magnifications can be prone to artifacts, When shooting in live view, screen is blacked out until data is written to the card, New 'simplified' AF mode switch requires more steps to switch between AF-S, AF-C and AF ...
Excerpt: A full-frame digital SLR is an object of desire for virtually every photographer. With prices now in the region of £2,500, they're a viable proposition for semi-professionals and keen amateurs as well as full-time professionals. The D800 is Nikon's second full-frame camera at this price, and comes with some truly mouth-watering specifications. The 36-megapixel sensor is far higher than even Nikon and Canon's top-of-the-range SLRs.

Nikon D800 : Vollformat-DSLR mit 36-Megapixel-Sensor
10 September 2012
Summary: Im Netz als Diva verschrien wird die D800 ihrem Ruf auch im netzwelt-Test gerecht. Gewusst wie bekommt man die Vollformat-DSLR jedoch gut in den Griff und will sie nicht mehr loslassen. Die hohe Auflösung und die hervorragende Bedienung in Kombination mit einem zuverlässigen Autofokus machen die D800 zu einem Arbeitstier. Sportfotografie ist aufgrund der hohen Datenmengen und der niedrigen Serienbildgeschwindigkeit nicht das Metier der D800.
Pros: Ausstattung, sehr gute Bildqualität, Auflösung, sehr gute Videofunktionen
