Nikon D810 Overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon D810 DSLR Camera takes its place as the high resolution option in the Nikon DSLR lineup. It features a 36.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor without an Optical Low Pass Filter for particularly sharp and detailed still imaging. With the addition of the EXPEED 4 Image Processor, performance speed is increased compared to the EXPEED 3 and noise is effectively reduced throughout the ISO range. Continuous shooting speed in FX format is 5 fps and in DX format hits a maximum of 7 fps. In addition, the Full HD video capabilities of the D810 have been upgraded to include 1080p capture at 24, 30 and 60 fps. Also, the improved efficiency of the processor enables up to 1200 shots on one battery charge and 40 minutes of video recording. Low light performance has been upgraded thanks to a wide native ISO sensitivity range that runs from 64 to 12,800 and can be expanded from 32 to 51,200. 

The advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor offers 51 AF points with 15 cross-type sensors and Group Area AF enables five AF sensors to be used as one group. This is useful when shooting subjects that cannot be tracked easily by one AF point due to lighting conditions. 

As a camera optimized for video capture, the D810 features recording in both FX and DX formats including simultaneous recording to memory cards and an external recorder as well as recording 60p output to an external recorder. The ISO range for video has also been expanded to run from ISO 64 to 12,800 and expand to 51,200. Automatic ISO adjustment in manual mode enables smooth exposure transitions. A built-in stereo microphone is supported as are jacks for an external mic and headphones. A selectable audio frequency range provides exacting control over sound recording.

A 3.2" LCD with 1,229K-dot resolution provides playback viewing and live view, and improved coatings on the optical viewfinder components provide brighter images and more accurate colors. Live View function now includes split screen display zoom for stills, and zebra highlighting display in video mode. Full aperture metering during live view for still shooting is supported.

Interval and time-lapse shooting feature exposure smoothing, and the maximum number of images per sequence is now 9,999. Improved Picture Control settings now offer Flat Picture Control to enable maximum dynamic range and color adjustments in post-production.

The D810 utilizes dual media slots for both Compact Flash and SD cards, and it provides a built-in flash with i-TTL metering as well as a hot shoe mount. A larger grip enables comfortable control for extended shooting, and a secondary "i" button has been added to back panel for faster access to important settings. 

36.3MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor without an Optical Low Pass Filter
Nikon's highest resolution sensor is housed in the D810, and by omitting the Optical Low Pass Filter, the sensor provides superior sharpness and detail. The sensor boasts fast channel readout, wide dynamic range, rich tones and improved imaging at high sensitivities.
EXPEED 4 Image Processor
The EXPEED 4 processor provides 30% faster performance over the EXPEED 3 as well improved low noise imaging throughout the ISO range. Support for 1080p video capture at 60 fps is featured and the processor's increased efficiency enables up to 1200 still shots and 40 minutes of video recording per charge.
Native ISO Range of 64 to 12,800
The improved ISO range compared to the D800 enables more effective low light imaging, and the ISO can be expanded from 32 to 51,200.
Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX Auto Focus Sensor
Versatile AF Modes of 9, 21, and 51 points and 3D tracking enable fast, precise auto focus control. AF sensitivity down to -2 EV is effective in low light and 15 cross-type sensors are compatible with AF NIKKOR lenses with open aperture of f/5.6 or faster. Eleven central focus points work with an open aperture of f/8. Improvements include upgraded 'lock-on', expanded 'store by orientation,' and more options for AF mode restrictions.
Group Area AF
Group Area AF enhances subject detection and tracking in challenging lighting conditions or when shooting comparatively small subjects against a high-contrast background by grouping and monitoring 5 individual AF points. The 5-point AF area can be shifted across the 51-point array as your composition changes.
RAW Size S
Accelerate your workflow with Nikon's RAW Size S file format which delivers 12-bit uncompressed Nikon NEF files that enable faster image transfer and smoother post-production.
Continuous Shooting
In FX mode, the D810 can shoot up to 5 fps, and in DX mode it can capture up to 7 fps when utilizing the MB-D12 battery grip with AA batteries.
Reduced Vibration for Sharper Imaging
The D810's shutter/mirror box architecture and electronic front-curtain feature improve overall image clarity. The shutter/mirror mechanism reduces image shake for a steady viewfinder image with minimal blackout during high-speed shooting. When activated, the electronic front-curtain shutter reduces the risk of blur in even subtle details by minimizing internal vibrations during exposure.
Quiet Continuous Mode
A redesigned Sequencer/Balancer Mechanism enables Quiet Continuous Mode for near silent sequential shooting.
Picture Control
In addition to standard, neutral, vivid, monochrome, portrait and landscape, image control options have been expanded to include Flat Picture Control which is geared for shooting in RAW modes and for video capture when adjustments will be made in post-production. Also, a clarity option has been added to all Picture Control settings and better control over Picture Control is enabled by fine 0.25 steps.
Full HD 1080p Video Capture in 60/30/24 fps
Video recording is supported in both FX and DX formats with an ISO range from 64 to 12,800 and expandable to 51, 200. Simultaneous recording to memory cards and to an external recorder is now supported. Auto ISO adjustment is possible in manual mode for smooth exposure transitions. Nikon's 3D noise reduction reduces random noise, distortion, and flicker when filming at high sensitivities. Zebra mode on the camera monitor shows you exactly where highlights are. A built-in stereo microphone as well as jacks for external microphone and headphones are provided. You can fine-tune audio levels in isolation both before and during recording and select the sound range (wide/voice).
3.2" LCD Monitor with 1,229k-dot Resolution
A high resolution LCD provides detailed playback viewing and live view capture with color balance and brightness control. A split screen display zoom for still shooting lets you compare two enlarged points in the image for sharpness and exposure.
Optical Viewfinder
Improved coatings on the optical components render brighter and more accurate color, and the Organic EL information display makes it easier to make adjustments under bright/dim conditions.
Interval Timer/Time-Lapse Shooting
Exposure smoothing is supported in time-lapse and interval shooting modes and the number of recordable images has been increased to 9,999.
Both a built-in flash and hot shoe mount are supported with i-TTL metering, as is a flash sync terminal. The built-in flash offers commander mode for wireless control of up to two groups of off-camera flash units.
CF and SD Card Slots
Two card slots are supported for versatile image storage and smoother workflow. One CF card slot for high-speed UDMA 7 cards, and one SD card slot for high-speed, high-capacity SDXC and UHS-I cards allow you to use one card as back-up or place still images on one card and video on the other or RAW on one and JPEG on the other.
Wi-Fi with Optional Transmitter
The D810 offers wireless connectivity for image transfer to a computer or FTP server and for remote camera control using Nikon's Camera Control Pro 2 software via the optional WT-5A Wireless Transmitter in combination with the optional UT-1 Communications Unit. The WT-5 attaches to the UT-1 unit which mounts to the camera's accessory hot shoe.
Form Factor
A deeper hand grip improves handling, and a secondary "i" button has been added for easier access to important settings. A durable magnesium alloy body with extensive weather and dust sealing ensure the D810 is moisture- and dust-resistant.

    Nikon D810 Reviews

    D810 DSLR Camera (Body Only) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 563.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had wanted this camera for a long time I had used the D810 while on a photo workshop to Cuba with the Santa Fe Photography Workshops and loved it - then used it again last summer while a student in Santa Fe. I kept reading that Nikon might be coming out with a new version but I finally decided it was worth it to go ahead and get it even if Nikon comes out with the next best version. I will be using this for animal and event photography as well as environmental portraits. I will also be using it this summer at Maine Media Workshops in three courses, two of which are related to portraiture and lighting and one is about animal and pet photography. Love this camera!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 2nd, Last Camera I'll Ever Need When I bought my Nikon D800, I proudly declared it was probably the last camera body I'd have to buy. That was two and a half years ago, and what a difference Nikon has made to the 810 in that time. On the face of it, it wouldn't seem to be that big of an upgrade: no OLPF, faster processor, quieter shutter, small RAW files, improved ergonomics, etc. But when you add all the features that have been improved, it became a must have for me; and I could not find a bad review of it anywhere. The positives far outweigh the very few negatives.I'll leave the long review of this camera to the professional writers, but everything I read about the camera in those reviews is true.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing Camera I shoot portraits and architecture professionally as well as wildlife and landscapes on the side. I can say without a doubt this camera is completely worth the expense. Any situation, the 810 excels in. The image quality is so great. I could only think of one issue which is that like a lot of high end Nikons the button remapping leaves a lot to be desired. For whatever reason on the Nikon D3400, you can assign function buttons for adjusting ISO, but on a lot of the Nikons, 750, 810, 610 the only button you can assign ISO settings too is on the record button. I just don't understand why full remapping isn't possible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This camera rocks!! The D810 is such an amazing camera. I use it for wildlife and scenic. The detail, sharpness, and the rich colors knock your socks off when you see a 40x60 print from my Epson 9900 printer. What a combination. The 7fps in DX mode is useable for my birding photography and still have plenty of pixels for large printing. I turned the ISO to 8000 to shoot the Milky Way and the prints come out tack sharp with no noise. I intended for this camera to be my backup to my D3s, but its my number 1 now. I love the way if feels in my hands. The focus tracking of birds flying is dead on. And I have not tried the video recording yet. But I know it rocks too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best camera on the market!!! So this review will be a little technical so just bear with me. The sensor's in these cameras are amazing. I know there's a huge feud between canon vs nikon vs sony. Well... the AF on Nikons just can't be beat first of all. The dynamic range with retrieving details from the darks, shadows, and recovery of highlights, again, can't be beat. From an editing standpoint ( I shoot to edit ) this is the camera for you. It really is the best. Ppl having issues with WB well... just fix it in post. It's not a big deal. Takes like 30 seconds to fix a WB issue. Also when you pair this camera with good glass well... again you are going to be the photographic leader wherever you are. So in summary, Best sensors, best dynamic range, best AF.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds my expectations, which were high i shoot primarily landscapes, which makes the D810 an obvious choice. But I got more than I bargained for. My previous camera was a D300s, and I shoot mainly with primes but also have a couple of DX wide to mid-range zooms. DX crop mode in the D810 produces cleaner and sharper images than the D300s, basically obsoleting that camera for my use. Images are exceptionally clean and colors accurate in the lower ISO settings that I use exclusively. I'm fond of the new highlight (spot) metering, especially since this camera seems to be somewhat lacking in highlight recovery. Configuration is very flexible but I still don't like Nikon's implementation of setting banks.
    Date published: 2015-02-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic camera I bought this to upgrade from a D300 which I've had since 2008. I am so impressed with all the features and I'm learning all I can about what it can do....and I plan to use them. I've gone out and done some landscape photography and portrait photography. I bought this with the 24-120mm lens and it's really a good addition to my lens collection. The 36mp sensor is awesome. I can crop without worrying about quality reduction. I also like the My Menu option that lets me pick menu items I might normally use, making it easy to find them. I could say a LOT more, but with only a few weeks gone by, I'm a very happy guy.
    Date published: 2016-04-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A no regrets replacement for my D800's Quicker and more accurate focus than the D800. Higher resolution than the D800. More accurate color reproduction than the D800. Greatly improved battery life over the D800. Super quite shutter/mirror operation... really! Cons: Nikon does not play well with others, meaning, they don't work with people like Adobe and Phase One's Capture 7 to insure PROFESSIONAL raw converter software is available when new cameras are released. In the case of the D810, only Nikon's NX-D is capable of opening a D810 raw file, and it's a buggy Beta release that isn't fully functional and crashes frequently. Come on Nikon, your professional customers deserve more for their loyalty!

    Are you selling the D810 USA version or an imported version? Thank you.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    In situations where B&H offers both a USA and an imported version of a product, we label each version clearly and explicitly. If a product does not have an indication either way, it is understood to be by default a USA product. In situations where only a USA version is offered it will not be labled USA.
