Comparison against the D800/E
View Nikon's D810 comparison chart here to compare specs against the D800 and D800E.
High-resolution master. 36.3-MP FX-format sensor:
Taking creative freedom to a whole new level, the D810 opens up spectacular new possibilities for high-resolution shooting. The camera’s brand new FX-format sensor offers a class-leading count of 36.3 megapixels, and is designed without an optical low-pass filter to deliver the ultimate in image detail in both stills and movies.
Equipped with the same EXPEED 4 image processing engine as used in the flagship D4S, the D810’s overall performance gets a significant boost: image rendering and ISO capability is vastly improved in both stills and video, with sophisticated new algorithms enabling remarkable clarity and enhanced gradation with a tangible sense of depth across the entire sensitivity range.
Up to 7 fps burst rate:
Engineered to excel in any environment, the D810’s powerful high-speed capabilities deliver exceptional versatility, ensuring you can capture even the quickest, most unpredictable subjects in a big way. Faster continuous shooting speeds and the flagship Multi-CAM 3500FX 51-point AF system enable precise, uncompromised full-resolution images at up to 5 fps, plus the camera can shoot 15.3-MP images at up to 7 fps in DX crop mode. Nikon’s new Group Area AF mode offers fast acquisition and improved background isolation when shooting subjects that are comparatively small and close to a high-contrast or distracting background.
Extensive ISO range:
In a first for a D-SLR, the D810’s ultra-wide native ISO range starts at ISO 64 for cleaner, better-defined images when shooting in bright light, and you can shoot at up to ISO 12800, or extend the range from 32 to 51200 ISO equivalent. Equipped with the same EXPEED 4 image processing engine as used in the flagship D4S, the D810’s overall performance gets a significant boost: image rendering and ISO capability is vastly improved in both stills and video, with sophisticated new algorithms enabling remarkable clarity and enhanced gradation with a tangible sense of depth across the entire sensitivity range.
Shooting movie footage on a camera as powerful as the Nikon D810 is an enriching and liberating experience. A powerful and flexible tool that will satisfy even the most demanding cinematographers, the D810 records Full HD (1080p) movies at 50p/60p frame rates with markedly reduced noise, moiré, and false colour. The camera offers FX and DX sensor crop formats as well as clean HDMI out, plus simultaneous capture of full-resolution footage in-camera and on an external recorder. Access the full light sensitivity range, from ISO 64, while filming, and control shutter speed, aperture, and audio levels, too.
Multi-CAM 3500FX 51-point AF system:
Fine-tuned for ultra-high resolution images. Configurable in 9-point, 21-point, and 51-point coverage settings and sensitive down to -2 EV (ISO 100, 20 °C/68 °F). Advancements include improved lock-on, expanded ‘store by orientation,’ and options for AF mode restrictions. Fifteen cross-type sensors in the centre are compatible with AF NIKKOR lenses with open aperture of f/5.6 or faster, and 11 central focus points work with an open aperture of f/8.
Group Area AF:
Experience enhanced subject detection and tracking. Group Area AF mode constantly monitors five different AF fields, offering improved acquisition and background isolation when shooting subjects that are comparatively small and close to a high-contrast or distracting background. The 5-point AF area can be shifted across the 51-point array as composition demands.
For moviemaking in diverse conditions, D-Movie offers broadcast-quality video in multiple frame formats. The D810 records Full HD (1080p) movies in FX and DX formats at 50p/60p frame rates with markedly reduced noise, moiré, and false colour. It offers clean HDMI out, plus simultaneous capture of full-resolution footage in-camera and on an external recorder.
Sharp and steady: Electronic front-curtain feature
The D810’s shutter/mirror box architecture and electronic front-curtain feature ensure the sharpest possible results. The shutter/mirror mechanism reduces image shake for a steady viewfinder image with minimal blackout during high-speed shooting. When activated, the electronic front-curtain shutter reduces the risk of micro-blur in even subtle details by minimising internal vibrations during exposure.
Picture Control evolves:
Take complete control over sharpening, contrast, brightness, hue, and saturation when shooting stills and video. Shoot with the Flat setting for the ultimate freedom in post-production: retain all the details and preserve rich tonal information in both highlights and shadows. Use the Clarity setting to precisely adjust contrast and differentiate fine structures.
The anti-reflective 8.0-cm (3.2-in.), 1229k-dot RGBW LCD monitor allows you to push the colour balance and brightness in any direction to suit your personal workflow preference. The
Split-screen display zoom:
Check levelling and sharpness with complete precision using the Live View split-screen zoom. This feature lets you compare two points in the image: each point is enlarged and displayed on the split screen. Accessed via the camera’s i button, this function is ideal for architectural or product shot photography.
Take complete control over footage while filming. You can set sensitivity from ISO 64 all the way up to ISO 51200 (equivalent) in M mode, and the Auto ISO function lets you configure the maximum ISO settings you want to work with. Nikon’s 3D noise reduction reduces random noise, distortion, and flicker when filming at high sensitivities. Zebra mode shows you exactly where highlights are blown on the camera monitor.
High-fidelity audio control:
Superior audio control improves sound recording and offers greater overall flexibility. A stereo microphone input and an audio out let you fine-tune audio levels in isolation both before and during recording. You can select the sound range (wide/voice), and wind noise can be reduced when recording with the built-in microphone.
Fast, durable, responsive:
The D810 starts up in approximately 0.12 seconds and boasts a shutter release lag of just 52 ms. The Kevlar/carbon fiber–composite shutter unit is tested to 200,000 releases and a shutter speed of 1/8000 to 30 s, with flash synchronisation at up to 1/250 s.
Unlimited continuous shooting:
Capture countless JPEGs and produce spectacular light-trail photography. Shoot in continuous release mode with a shutter speed of 4 seconds or slower, and you can record as many high-quality JPEGs as your media cards and battery life allow. With an extremely short time gap between each exposure, you can seamlessly join shots of star trails or taillights to beautiful effect, using third-party software.
Total Digital Imaging System:
Draw out the full potential of the D810’s 36.3-MP sensor with the wide range of NIKKOR lenses. With their exceptionally high resolving power, NIKKOR lenses meet the demands of photographers in every field. Also fully compatible with Nikon’s industry-leading Creative Lighting System, the D810 works with a range of versatile Speedlights for creative flash photography on or off-camera.
High-capacity EN-EL15 battery:
Ultra-compact and lightweight lithium-ion rechargeable battery with a capacity of 1900 mAh (7.0 V). Capture up to 1,200 still images¹ on a single charge.
Two card slots for a smooth shooting experience. One CF card slot for high-speed UDMA 7 cards, and one SD card slot for high-speed, high-capacity SDXC and UHS-I cards.
Durable magnesium alloy body:
Extensive weather and dust sealing ensure the D810 is moisture and dust resistant.

A Great Great Camera
About Me Professional
Comments about Nikon D810 Digital SLR Camera Body:
I own a D5 and a D810 and I love the D810. i often shoot classic music concerts and the D810 is whisper quiet. The additional resolution is amazing. I often shoot with a F4 300mm Nikkor handheld and the D810 never fails to impress me. I have large hands so the addition of the extra Battery Grip is ideal for me and provides better balance.The Memory Card flap is a little flimsy so be careful and I would so love it if the Battery Pack was integral like the D5 but hey at the price Im not complaining. An amazing camera
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Experienced Amateur
I upgraded from another lower spec Nikon DSLR. I was surprised by the increase in weight. Its build quality is excellent, with all the connections and controls I am used too. However, as with other Nikon high end cameras the array of controls, buttons and set up options is massive. I find myself stuck looking for a different setting in the field which can be a pain, however I have had it less than a month! As with all the Nikon cameras I have had the strap is rubbish, honestly Nikon, I spend this amount on a camera and I get a strap of this quality? It stays in the box and is quickly replaced by the Peak Design strap. Also no Hot Shoe protector?? Good, quick and responsive camera aimed at low end professional, weddings, Landscapes, portraits etc. Works well with the Nikon Grip which balances up the whole set up and increases battery life and f/s. Only one CF card but also has a SD slot for splitting your images, videos etc

Disappointed with the rubber body grip
About Me Casual user
The D810 is is an excellent camera, I can't fault the mechanics of it. The only thing thats really annoying is the rubber grip on the card door is pealing off after one year. I would have given this a 5 otherwise. I find this a bad fault for the cost.

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
I upgraded to a D810 from a D200 so was used to the general layout and weight of such a camera.Realising that I'd reached the end of my time with the D200 I considered two other models in the Nikon range and discounted them for the following reasons:-D600 - didn't like the idea of having to lose direct access to key functions on the control cluster and cannot get my head around scene modes.D750 - really not keen on the flip out screen and reading that some have suffered with moisture ingress at the sides of the screen causing purple fringing didn't fill me with confidence.The D810 won out over the above models as it also benefits from a higher resolution and I realised that I'd be able to crop images more than a 24 MP sensor would allow with the same lenses. So to a certain extent you can crop images if you're unable to get close enough to your subject.Having mentioned lenses, one thing the D810 does demand is good quality glass up front. As a test, I tried a friends 18 - 55 kit lens.......all I'll say is don't do it, other than for a test! The other thing required to get the best out of this camera is good technique.If you've got slightly larger hands, as I have, the D810 feels much more secure in the hand with the battery grip fitted and this arrangement also feels more balanced with lenses like the 70 - 200 f 2.8 attached.Only negatives with the D810 in my opinion:-1/. No built in WI-FI - would be neat to have wireless transfer capability to my desktop;2/. No built in GPS - this facility requires an optional extra which is not weather sealed to the extent of the camera and also takes up the hot shoe;3/. No HDMI cable supplied. Come on Nikon get a grip.....you fit the camera with an HDMI port, want me to line your coffers with well over two grand for a camera and battery pack (plus good lenses on top of that to benefit from that investment) and then don't put the cable in the box.........but want another £60 for an HDMI cable!!All in all.........love this camera, but somebody at Nikon please take note of comments 1 to 3 above.

Excellent Pro Level Camera
By Stan O' Kella
i have used Nikon for about 8 years, most recent body being a D700. I bought this as an additional body with the intent to move to being a full time pro. It is a massive leap from my D700, faster AF, better ergonomics, easier to use with better menu access and quick menus. The resolution is fantastic and give a lot of creative scope if you managed to have too short a lens on for a shot, allows large crops to make up for user error!Low light iso not quite as good as D700, but images are still good quality at higher ISO.

Nikon D810 review
Part exchanged D800 for D810 at WEX, very happy with the deal and camera.Initial thought was how quiet the shutter is compared to the D800 also a little more speed.The Group Focus feature is interesting will be experimenting with that.So far very impressed tried it out at an airshow with my Nikon 70-200 and TC 11 converter with excellent results..
