- Nikon D810 Body
Make your new experience an unforgettable masterpiece with the gorgeous Nikon D810. From delicate textures up to a high-speed photography, this all-versatile 36.3-MP FX-format with CMOS sensor camera is prepared no matter what. With a redesigned sensor, ultra-wide ISO range from 64–12800 in steps of 1/3, 1/2 or 1EV, and EXPEED 4 image processor, you will get extraordinary vivid and crisp images, luxurious tonality, sharpness, and reduced noise due to its 51 focus points (including 15 cross-type sensors; f/8 supported by 11 sensors) across all sensitivities. This superb camera has AF performance, a burst rate of up to 7 fps, manual pop-up flash with button release for dim instances and full HD movie recording at 1080/60p which ensures that you are free to take a shot at any kind of scene with precision. Nikon D810 also has dust-reduction system for image sensor cleaning. You can also use its compact flash (CF) (Type I, UDMA compliant), SD, SDHC (UHS-I compliant), or SDXC (UHS-I compliant) for you to view the images in the future.
Product Features in Detail
Sharp and steady
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.
Push the colour balance and brightness in any direction to suit your personal workflow preference. The anti-reflective 8.0-cm (3.2-in.), 1229k-dot RGBW LCD monitor also offers auto brightness control.
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.
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.
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.
