Rating: 8.8/10 (10 votes cast)

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.

Great review! I am carefully watching the new releases from Nikon this year. I want to replace my D3100 with something more powerful.

i am a huge fan of the Rebel but this might make me change my mind. I like the features that this has for better lighting conditions.

I am still a little annoyed at the fact of the light sensitivity but when I think of it, most of my photos are in bright daylight. The Nikon D800 would be one of my first choices. Still shopping.

Wow a 36.3mp camera. Is there any real advantage to that many mp’s?

Wow! I want one! I think it will be out of my price range for quite some time though, darn it! 😉

I would love to own this camera but not only am I not advanced enough with my photography to warrant the price tag I cannot afford it…someday sooner rather than later I hope. Thank you for this review.

Thank you for the comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the review. DLSRs like the D800 are a bit of a financial investment. We try to alert our readers whenever we find a significant discount on a camera. So, keep checking back. You may also want to consider a used Pentax brand DLSR. These often cost a little less than Nikons and Canons and photographers generally like them just as much.

The price of the D800 will most likely fall over time. Since this camera was just released, the price is still on the higher end of the spectrum. Keep checking our website. We’ll be sure to alert you if and when the price falls.
