A few hours ago, Nikon officially unveiled their latest high-end camera in the form of the Nikon D810 which is the successor to Nikon’s other cameras like the D800 and D800E. Now if you liked what you saw and heard about the camera, you might be interested to learn that several online retailers have begun taking pre-orders for the camera.
Retailers such as B&H, Amazon, and Adorama have announced that they will begin taking pre-orders for the camera. Just in case you were thinking and hoping that the retailers might be selling it cheaper, you’d be mistaken as all the retailers have priced it at $3,300 which is pretty much the price that Nikon announced earlier. The retailers have also pegged it for shipment on the 17th of July, so if you’re interested in getting your hands on the D810, you might want to place your pre-order today.
Just in case you missed the announcement earlier, the Nikon D810 is a new full frame DSLR camera from Nikon. It will feature a 36.3 megapixel sensor and will be powered by Nikon’s EXPEED 4 image processing engine. While it does not feature an optical low pass filter, it will allow users to shoot photos up to ISO 51,200 when in Hi-2 mode.
The D810 is also aimed at videographers, thanks to the ability to display zebra stripes while filming to help the filmmaker know if the shot is being exposed properly. There will be two microphones in the front that allows for stereo audio capture, and a flat video profile that will allow for coloring of the footage to be a much simpler task.
