Nikon D800E

11 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Announced in February 2012, the Nikon D800E is the long-awaited successor to the hugely popular D700. As Nikon's second FX format digital SLR camera, the Nikon D700 has proven itself to be a great all-rounder appreciated by professionals and ‘serious amateurs' alike. Yet as time went by, pressure was mounting on Nikon to introduce a higher-resolution DSLR camera in the same price segment.

Nikon D800E Review

Digital Photography School
18 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The Nikon D800E will surely make a big wave, not only because of its massive image capture figure of 36.3 megapixels, making it Nikon’s highest res camera and possibly the industry’s highest figure for a full frame DSLR. It also should rival many higher priced medium format cameras and see deployment by fashion and ad photographers.

  • Conclusion: Perhaps I am merely pointing out the obvious, but the biggest difference between the D800 and D800E is actually the price. In the US, the D800E is $3300, 10% more expensive than the plain D800 at $3000. Otherwise, the differences between the two are, at best, small. The good news is that moiré is largely a non-issue even on the D800E.

Nikon D800E

26 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The Nikon D800E digital SLR is identical to the Nikon D800 , except it's designed to remove the effects of the optical low-pass filter (OLPF) for slightly sharper images than normal. That puts it at risk of producing moiré patterns, false colors, and other aliasing artifacts. Our tests have found that to be true.
  • Pros: Solid build, Excellent controls, positioned well, 51-point AF, Extremely high resolution, Excellent image quality, Excellent dynamic range, Surprising high ISO performance, DX crop mode produces 15.4-megapixel images, Automatic CA reduction, Optional Vignette and Distortion correction (for most D and G Nikkor lenses), Built-in flash, Pop-up flash can act as commander to wireless slaves, Dedicated AF assist lamp, Very customizable, Auto ISO can take current focal lengt...
  • Cons: Problem of moiré with certain image elements at frequencies that approximate the sensor grid, Camera may capture too much detail for some, Resolution makes focus, lens quality and technique more critical, File sizes are extremely large (though there are options to reduce them at reduced quality), Auto and Incandescent White Balance too warm indoors, Somewhat slow autofocus for a professional model, Full-resolution burst speed limited to 4 fps (though not bad consideri...

DP Review
2 July 2012
  • Summary: The Nikon D800E - at low ISOs and optimum lens apertures - offers slightly higher resolution than its less expensive sibling, the D800. Its raw files respond impressively well to a moderately aggressive sharpening routine while avoiding visible artifacts. As with the D800, it offers the (somewhat clunky) option to output uncompressed video but is noticeably susceptible to color moiré in video mode.
  • Pros: Class-leading image resolution at 36.3 MP (with the D800E offering slightly superior resolution), Outstanding high ISO performance in both JPEG and Raw files, High quality JPEG images at default settings (with the D800E offering slightly superior detail), Wide dynamic range Raw files, Consistently pleasing metering and white balance results, Very solid build quality and good ergonomics / handling, Fast, responsive camera when adjusting settings, Greatly improved live ...
  • Cons: Relatively slow 4 fps continuous shooting in FX mode (6 fps with optional battery grip in DX mode), Slow AF in live view and video modes (compared to phase-detection), Rear LCD prone to glare in bright sunlight, despite new design, Fine detail in live view magnifications can be prone to artifacts, When shooting in live view, screen is blacked out until data is written to the card, New 'simplified' AF mode switch requires more steps to switch between AF-S, AF-C and AF ...

  • Excerpt: As for me, I saw the D800 as an opportunity to revisit the Nikon marque and to look in some depth over a period of time at where the current state of the art from that company finds itself. So I put together a two camera, eight lens system for long term use. I'll be detailing my choices below as this report progresses.

  • Excerpt: Franchement, on peut renvoyer à notre point de vue sur le D800 pour un jugement global. Le reste de l'analyse est à aborder du point de vue du rapport prix - apport de la suppression du filtre passe bas : je prix (et non le jeu...) en vaut-il la chandelle : telle est la question qu'il faut se poser...
  • Pros: Qualité d'image, Construction finition
  • Cons: Le surcoût de la suppression du filtre passe-bas
