Nikon D810A DSLR Camera (Body Only)
Key Features
  • Optimized for Astrophotography
  • IR-Cut Filter Passes H-Alpha Wavelength
  • 36.3MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor
  • No Optical Low Pass Filter
Specifically designed for those looking to photograph the night sky, the Nikon D810A DSLR is a modified version of the D810 and features an optical IR cut filter for photographing distant nebulae and other astronomical phenomena with utmost clarity and color accuracy. By updating the D810's design with a dedicated filter to pass H-alpha (656.28nm) wavelengths, the D810A is able to depict nebulae and other subjects without unwanted infrared contamination for greater color neutrality. Benefitting this adjustment to the sensor filtration, this specialized DSLR also features an expanded shutter speed range and new M* exposure mode for more accurate exposure times up to 15 minutes, as well as a Virtual Live View Exposure Preview feature to aid in clear focus and composition confirmation when making such long exposures. Beyond these few but notable distinctions, the D810A and D810 feature the same set of core features to produce high resolution, well-detailed imagery.

question

Does the 810A photos exhibit less noise than those produced by the 810 at the same settings?
Asked by: Brook
Yes, it seems that read noise is less. I did some comparisons at 30 second exposure and the 810A had better noise than both the 810 and the D5.

question

I can see in the overview that this camera is not recommended for general photography because of a reddish cast that may appear under certain lighting situations. Could this be prevented using for example a IR filter in the lens?
Asked by: CARLOS
I have used the 810A for landscapes in the daytime and see no noticeable red effects. I use Canon and Nikon cameras, and there is more difference between the Canon and Nikon cameras than there is between the 810A and other Nikons.

question

Can I still use camera in temperatures below 32 degrees?
Asked by: Konstantin R.
Yes. I have used the camera down to 4 degrees F, or -15 degrees C. The battery life may seem shortened. One additional effect I have found is that the LCD screen may go blank in the cold when the battery said it was 50% charged. I tough the LCD was broken. It worked fine when I put a new battery in.

question

Is this a good backup camera to the D810?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. It seems to me that the S/N at high ISO is actually better than on the 810, as per many reviews. The red cast does not seem to be an issue to me. Perhaps it would be better to say that the 810 could be used as a backup to 810A.
