The wait for the Nikon D800 DLSR is almost over. The highly anticipated D800 is now available for order at Adorama.
In some ways, the D800 Nikon camera will essentially be a smaller version of the Nikon D4, which is also slated for release sometime in early 2012. Like the D4, the D800 will come with a 51-point autofocus system, Advanced Scene Recognition System, and 91,000-pixel 3D color matrix metering. If you’re expecting a camera that’s just a miniature D4, you may be disappointed with the D800, however. The D800 differs in a few important ways from the D4.
The D800 is a 36.3-megapixel camera, while the D4 is a 16.2 megapixel camera. So, when it comes to megapixels, the D800 is actually a more impressive camera. Unfortunately, the D800 only offers 6400 ISO sensitivity, which means it’s not the best camera for low-light photography. The D4, on the other hand, offers 204,8000 ISO sensitivity, which means it’s the ideal camera for photography in practically any light setting.
Overall, the D800’s megapixel offering will make it the perfect camera for professional photographers who work in a controlled studio setting. For its humble price of $3000, the D800 will seem like an appealing option in comparison to 40-megapixel cameras that cost around $12,000.
