The best image quality in Nikon’s history is the promise from the new high-resolution full-frame D810, which replaces the D800 and D800E. At its heart of the camera is a new 36.3-megapixel sensor, which provides little increase in resolution but has been newly developed and features no optical low- pass filter. It also offers a wider ISO sensitivity range of 64- 12,800, expandable to 32-51,200, than its predecessors and is combined with the same EXPEED 4 processor as found in the D4 s . Picture Control 2.0 offers improved in-camera processing before and after capture, incorporating a new clarity setting. Improvements to the 51-point autofocus system see better algorithms and the addition of Group Area AF mode for improved background isolation. Top speed is a faster five frames-per-second at full-resolution and seven frames-per-second in DX crop mode, and changes to the shutter/mirror box mechanism make the viewfinder image steadier and reduce sound and vibration. There’s also Raw Size S recording, which captures 12-bit uncompressed Nikon Raw files that are half the size for a smooth workflow. The D810 is on sale now, with a price of £2699.99.
