Nikon D800E Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) - US Version w/ Seller Warranty
Available online only
The Nikon D800E Digital SLR Camera is more than a DSLR, its a broadcast quality video camera as well. Driving both still and video capture is the FX-format CMOS 36.3Mp sensor and the powerful EXPEED 3 image-processing engine.
Please note - The D800E is optimized for photographers that are looking to get the maximum sharpness out of their NEF raw files. Shooters that rely predominantly on capturing JPEGs may want to choose the D800 camera instead.
To achieve maximum sharpness in NEF files, the special low-pass filter in the D800E is not configured with anti-aliasing properties. While this may incur an increase in moire patterns in some images, this presents less of a post-production concern when working exclusively with NEF raw files.
Images captured in JPEG formats that are affected by moire could become more difficult to work with during the post-production process. Additionally - Nikons Capture NX 2 photo editing software has an integral moire correction filter, and a new adaptation for that filter thats designed especially for the D800E, is due to be released soon.
The D800Es Advanced Scene Recognition System with a 91k-pixel RGB sensor brings out precise, accurate colors in every scene, for natural-looking results. Face detection and a detailed scene analysis support more accurate autofocus, 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. In addition, the 3D color matrix metering III feature results in pleasing auto exposures, especially when human faces are in the scene.
The D800E utilizes Nikons i-TTL system for the supreme in accuracy and balance. When combined with Nikons Speedlights, high-quality stills result. Of course, the camera also has a built-in pop-up flash for those spur-of-the-moment snapshots and other casual pics. The D800E also utilizes Nikons auto white balance which is equipped for a wide range of shooting situations. The Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus 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.
When it comes to HD movie capture, the D800E shoots broadcast quality video in two D-Movie formats at 1080/30p full HD. The D800E 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 accustomed to. Additional video features include live view operation, the ability to record high-fidelity stereo audio with an external mic, 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 magnify playback images up to 46x. Other notable features of the D800E 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 precise and durable shutter, and a high-precision sequential control mechanism.
A DSLR though it may be, the D800E comes with a number of creative and intuitive features to keep your shooting both exciting and efficient. Features like direct access to the Picture Control feature and a four-button layout and release mode dial on the cameras top deck make your shooting life easier, while High Dynamic Range, Dual-axis electronic virtual horizon, and numerous in-camera editing functions ensure that you get the shot you want. The D800E comes with ViewNX 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. D800E The Ultimate Attention to Detail
Nikon engineers have developed a unique alternative for those seeking the ultimate in definition. The D800E incorporates an optical filter with all the anti-aliasing properties removed in order to facilitate the sharpest images possible. This is an ideal tool for photographers who can control light, distance and their subjects to the degree where they can mitigate the occurrence of moiré. Aside from the optical filter, all functions and features are the same as on the D800
Nikon FX-Format CMOS Sensor with 36.3 Effective Megapixels
The D800E renders levels of texture, nuance and detail to your photography that, until now, have been the exclusive domain of the complicated medium-format system. Define every eyelash, every line in tree bark, and every shimmer of light. Savor the exceptional depth in your still images - with the astounding 36.3 effective megapixels, you can. Enlarge them as big as A1 poster-sized prints (23.4 x 33.1 /59.4 x 84.1cm) at 200 dpi, or crop aggressively to reach the composition you desire, all without sacrificing the detail and tonal range of the original. In order to maintain clean, high-resolution images, 14-bit A/D conversion within the sensor and a high signal-to-noise ratio deliver phenomenal images in a diverse array of situations. The image sensors incredible potential does not stop with photography, either. For cinematographers ready to put their exceptionally sharp NIKKOR lenses into action, the D800Es 36.3 effective megapixel data is efficiently processed for exquisite 1080p broadcast quality video at 30p
Standard ISO 100 to ISO 6400 Expandable to ISO 50 to 25,600 Equivalent
High-resolution, studio-quality images shouldnt be restricted to the studio. The D800E sets a new benchmark for high resolution D-SLR cameras, with crisp clean images across a wide ISO range. Flexibility like this opens up new imaging opportunities for both still photographers and cinematographers alike during the magic hour, the time just before dawn or at dusk when available light is often beautiful but scarce. Even at high ISO settings, the cameras intelligent noise reduction systems manage noise without sacrificing fine details, giving the D800E the edge. The difference can even be seen in low-contrast subjects such as hair and grass textures, which are often essential elements of cinema as well as high-resolution portraits and landscape images. High image quality at higher ISOs also means that you can shoot still images handheld more confidently, knowing that fast shutter speeds will reduce blur
A Strategic Approach to Turn Light to Your Advantage
Combining both high-resolution performance and a wide ISO sensitivity range has finally become a reality. Nikon engineers have developed intelligent new methods to manipulate light transmission to the sensors photodiodes: from the optical low-pass filter and on-chip gapless micro lenses to the image sensors internal design, every measure has been taken to maximize and improve light transmission in order to deliver crisp, brilliant images with significantly less noise. All this is possible under a wide variety of lighting conditions, enabling you to get the most out of your NIKKOR lenses
EXPEED 3 Image Processing Engine: Speed, Versatility, and High Performance
High-megapixel still images are detail-rich but data-heavy. With the D800E, however, you dont have to sacrifice speed for this privilege. Dedicated to understanding speed and its role in image making, Nikon engineers designed a powerful EXPEED 3 image-processing engine exclusively for digital SLRs.
