    Nikon D800 Digital SLR Camera Body Only

    The Nikon D800 is the world's best DSLR for outdoor, nature landscape and many other kinds of photography. Nikon D800 is the world's DSLR best because it has such extremely high image quality that it exceeds not just every other full-frame DSLR ever made. The Nikon D800's image quality is unexcelled, and it weighs less than any other Nikon full-frame digital camera ever made, making it indisputably the best DSLR to carry when you have to carry a DSLR in the field.
    The Nikon D800 SLR Digital Camera is more than a DSLR, it's a broadcast quality video camera as well. Driving both still and video capture is the FX-format CMOS 36.3 MP sensor and the powerful EXPEED 3 image-processing engine. Backing up the heart of the camera you'll find an optical low-pass filter that reduces false colour and moirés, and an ISO range of 100-6400 that's expandable to ISO 50-25600 equivalent. In addition, the D800 boasts 14-bit A/D conversion and 16-bit image processing. The D800 Nikon F mount accepts a multitude of NIKKOR lenses, included DX lenses and AF-S lenses; and Nikon Speedlite provide outstanding flash capabilities.
    Combining both high-resolution performance and a wide ISO sensitivity range has finally become a reality. Nikon engineers have developed intelligent new methods to influence light transmission to the sensor's photodiodes: from the optical low-pass filter and on-chip gapless micro lenses to the image sensor's internal design, every measure has been taken to maximize and get better light transmission in order to convey crisp, brilliant images with considerably less noise. All this is possible under a wide variety of lighting conditions, enabling you to get the most out of your NIKKOR lenses.
    The Nikon D800 Advanced Scene Recognition System with a 91k-pixel RGB sensor brings out precise and accurate colours in every scene, for natural looking results. Face detection and a detailed scene analysis support more accurate auto focus, auto exposure, and i-TTL flash exposure for any number of compositional and lighting situations. When combined with auto-area AF and subject tracking in 3D-tracking, your images are even more fine-tuned. Additionally, the 3D colour matrix metering III feature results in pleasing auto exposures, especially when human faces are in the scene.
    The Nikon D800 utilizes Nikon's i-TTL system, for the best in accuracy and balance. When combined with Nikon's Speedlite, high-quality stills result. Certainly, the camera also has an integrated pop-up flash for those spur of the moment snapshots and other casual pictures. The Nikon D800 also utilizes Nikon's auto white balance which is equipped for a wide range of shooting conditions. The Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX auto focus sensor results in sharp images, even in low-light and the four AF-area modes give you the versatility you need to shoot everything from stills to street scenes to landscapes and more.
    Reducing false colour and moiré is the main job of the optical low-pass filter located in front of the image sensor. Though, this advantage is generally gained with a small sacrifice of sharpness. Moiré occurs in scenes containing repetitive details, for example strong vertical lines in architecture. Finding the right balance between benefits and sacrifices is the key to higher image quality, and that is what the Nikon D800 optical low-pass filter delivers. As a result, the astounding 36.3 mega-pixels unleash their potential through an optimized balance between sharpness and efficiently disallowed moiré and false colour. besides, the multi-layer structure of the D800 low-pass filter utilizes layers of antireflective coating that have been optimized for the camera, contributing to sharper and clearer images.
    When it comes to HD movie capture, the Nikon D800 shoots broadcast quality video in two D-Movie formats at 1080/30p full HD. The D800 captures movies in FX and DX movie formats. The FX-based format renders shallow depth of field with beautiful bokeh, while the DX-format uses an image area similar to 35mm movie film, for a look cinematographers are familiar to. Extra video features include live view operation, the capability to record high fidelity stereo audio with an external microphone, and the option to shoot time-lapse photography and save it as a movie file. Flicker reduction and custom settings enable even more freedom of expression in your movies.
    When it comes to viewing your scenes you have a choice of the 100% coverage FX-format optical viewfinder or the 3.2" LCD monitor. The pentaprism viewfinder provides you with a clear and accurate view when shooting stills. And the generous 3.2" 921k-dot wide viewing angle LCD gives you features like an anti-reflective structure, brightness control, and the ability to enlarge playback images up to 46x. Other outstanding features of the Nikon D800 include a fast response time of 0.12 seconds, high-speed CF and SD dual card slots, high-speed data transfer with a USB 3.0 connection, a high capacity EN-EL15 rechargeable lithium-ion battery, a accurate and durable shutter, and a high precision sequential control mechanism.
    High mega-pixel sensors can actually test the quality of your lenses, but you can be confident that the combination of brilliant NIKKOR lenses and Nikon's intelligent processing measures will drastically lessen lateral chromatic aberration to give you incredibly natural-looking results. Unlike other correction methods that simply abolish chromatic aberration, Nikon's method compensates for these colour differences in a resolving index for each colour, making it particularly effective in producing images with eye-catching edge-to-edge sharpness. Furthermore, because these corrections are made regardless of the NIKKOR lens used, this feature contributes considerably to achieving the sharpest images possible.
    Nikon's revolutionary Advanced Scene Recognition System, introduced with the flagship D4 camera, is also employed in the D800. At its core is a 91K-pixel RGB sensor that carefully analyzes each scene with the fine resolution. The RGB sensor can recognize your scene's colours and brightness with extraordinary precision then use that information to apply various automatic controls and give you more natural looking results. The real breakthrough, nevertheless, is that the sensor can detect human faces with surprising accuracy when shooting through the optical viewfinder.
    A DSLR though it may be, the Nikon D800 comes with a number of creative and spontaneous features to keep your shooting both exciting and competent. Features like direct access to the Picture Control feature and a four button layout and release mode dial on the camera's top deck make your shooting life easier, while High Dynamic Rang, Dual-axis electronic virtual horizon, and numerous in camera editing functions make sure that you get the shot you want. The Nikon D800 comes with View NX 2 software for browsing, editing, and sharing of your files. Optional software from Nikon that can be used includes Capture NX 2 and Camera Control Pro 2.
