The big dog in terms of big megapixels in a smallish form factor returns with big updates. Nikon shocked the world with the introduction of the 36-megapixel D800/D800E a couple of years ago. The company is updating the lineup with the new Nikon D810. At first glance, you wouldn’t know the difference between the previous and the current model. Both appear identical and both carry a 36.3MP FX-format (full frame) CMOS sensor. Like the D800E, the D810 will be sans Optical Low Pass Filter. The differences start with the imaging engine – with the D810 utilizing Nikon’s brand-new EXPEED 4. This allows for more speed (30% faster than EXPEED 3) and support for 1080 60p video and better power management. It has a crazy ISO range too, starting at 64 up to 12,800. This can even be driven down to ISO 32 (Lo1) to an insane ISO 51,200 at Hi2. Shooting in crappy lighting conditions has never been easier on a camera carrying so many megapixels. Preset White Balance has now been increased from 1-6 settings, for those varying lighting conditions. The Nikon D810 has been loaded with a variety of shooting options as well for various situations. It can now shoot nearly 10,000 time lapse images which is 10x more than its predecessor. Those who consider the frame rate as a selling factor would also be delighted to know that this new DSLR shoots a frame faster than the model it replaces. $3,300.
