Nikon D810 Review Summary
Nikon D810 Assessment
Nikon's latest DSLR is an impressive revision of their highest-resolution cameras. It looks just like a D800 or D800E except the sensor and processor have both been replaced with state-of-the-art components. The new 36 megapixels full-frame CMOS sensor offers a wider sensitivity-range, starting an ultra-low ISO 32.
The new EXPEED 4 processor takes part in the most sophisticated image-pipeline yet, with more latitude and precision to fine-tune image-output, now in TIFF format as well as JPEG.
The new Highlight Weighed metering is unique and takes advantage of the D810's exceptional dynamic-range to produce usable images more often.
In short, the D810 shows excellent image-quality on all fronts except for Automatic WB. It is also very fast and extremely responsive.
There is only one word of caution with this camera: lenses. To obtain the best image quality, the D810 requires the best lenses and each of those easily cost at least half the price of the camera.
