Nikon D800E Review

  • Excerpt: The Nikon D800E will surely make a big wave, not only because of its massive image capture figure of 36.3 megapixels, making it Nikon’s highest res camera and possibly the industry’s highest figure for a full frame DSLR.

  • 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.
