Nikon D810 Released: Here are the Specs of the Flagship DSLR
Nikon D810 has been awaited ever since the D800 and D800E have been launched and now the wait is finally over. Let’s have a look at its specs.
The Nikon D810 is finally here, coming with a wider ISO range, faster continuous shooting, and improved video functions. The flagship DSLR features a new 36.3-megapixel full-frame FX-format (35.9 x 24.0 mm) and uses Nikon’s Expeed 4 image processing engine.
The much-awaited DSLR comes with a CMOS sensor which lacks an optical low pass filter (OLPF) and is paired with Nikon’s Expeed 4 image processing engine. The ISO range now covers 64-12,800 (expandable to 32-51,200), which will result in better images.
The Autofocus is upgraded with an enhanced Multi-Cam 3500-FX AF sensor module that utilizes new AF algorithms. The ability to shoot RAW Small files has been borrowed from the D4S. However, despite of all the new features and specs, the camera didn’t make the rumored jump to 4K.

The camera is now able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 60/50/30/25/24 fps and it adds a flat/neutral color profile, as well, allowing for maximum flexibility in post-production.
With Auto-ISO, the Nikon D810 can adapt the exposure as the light changes when shooting video. Also, the built-in microphone is now stereo and there a 3.2-inch RGBW LCD screen with 1,229K dots. Here’s how the camera is described on the official page:
“Bring the imaging power of a massive 36.3 effective megapixels to a diverse range of scenes. The D810’s all-new FX-format image sensor and EXPEED 4 image-processing engine work together to produce images with greater clearness.”
“Brilliantly precise autofocus and significantly reduced internal vibration make it easier to capture pinpoint-sharp images, while a faster burst rate of approx. 5 fps in FX format broadens the range of shooting situations. Multimedia users, meanwhile, can enjoy precisely rendered movies in 1080/60p, with significantly reduced moiré and noise. This is the camera that will let you create your next masterpiece.”
However, overall, the physical design of the camera remains somewhat unchanged, measuring 146 x 123 x 81.5 mm (5.8 x 4.9 x 3.3 in) and weighing 980 g (2 lb, 2.6 oz).
The Nikon D810 will be available in late July for price of US$3,300, but that’s body-only. What do you think of the much-awaited camera? Leave your comments below.
