From the Author: Top Six New Features of the D800/E
- Higher resolution
Of course this is the most obvious feature, 36MP is triple what and of the previous Nikon DXXX series have. This is even a step up from the 24MP D3x which comes in at $5000 more than the D800/E. This is great for studio photographers who command higher resolution and even allows you to shoot in DX mode with an impressive 15MP, which is 10 more MP than the other cameras in this series.
- 100% viewfinder display
The D700 had a 95% viewfinder coverage which meant that your image composition was looser than it appeared in the viewfinder. The D800/E's 100% viewfinder allows you to compose your images more accurately.
- Improved Auto-ISO
The Auto-ISO feature is now able to set the minimum shutter speed automatically according to focal length. For someone who has grown to love Auto-ISO, this gives it much more flexibility. If you haven't tried Auto-ISO I encourage you to do so. You can also turn Auto-ISO on and off by pressing the ISO button and rotating the sub-command dial instead of going through the menu system, very helpful.
The D700 had no video at all; while the D300s had video it was only 720p. The D800/E offers full 1080p HD video, but the even bigger improvements are the ability to completely control the settings manually, the live HDMI out, the stereo microphone input, and the headphone output so you accurately monitor the sound. Finally, professional video from a Nikon DSLR.
- Metering system
The D800/E ups the 1005-Pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering system to a whopping 91,000-pixel system. This allows for more accurate exposures when using P, S, and A modes.
- Image processing engine
The D800/E inherits the same processor as the D4, the EXPEED 3. With two processors this speeds up autofocus and data transfer times as well as allows the D800/E to have an expanded dynamic range and cleaner images at higher ISO settings that other cameras with high megapixel counts.
'The book is helpfully arranged to allow you to find the correct guidance just when you need it.' (Digital Photography Enthusiast, September 2012)
