Record Stunning Full HD Video & Capture Quality Stills
The Nikon D810 DSLR offers the ability to record stunning Full HD video, while a 36.3-megapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. sensor and wide ISOISOExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.) range combine to offer unrivalled images rich in tone and definition. The Nikon D810 delivers shots that put the camera in a class of its own, while offering outstanding versatility to enable it to excel in a wide range of environments and situations.
The D810 puts incredible power and flexibility in the hands of videographers, recording Full HD 1080p movies at 60 frames per second (fps). It features top-notch image quality and is designed to meet the needs of photography enthusiasts and professionals alike who demand a DSLR that delivers the ultimate blend of clarity, sharpness, and rich colours for any shot. The D810 features a 36.3-megapixel sensor and an ISO range of 64 to 12800, giving the camera the capacity to maximise the full potential of Nikon’s wide range of NIKKOR lenses.
Clear and accurate video recording
The Nikon D810 features support for recording of 1080/60p Full HD videos. Optimized data processing designed to make use of the 36.3 effective megapixels provides rich, detailed video with smooth exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. alteration, even when brightness changes. The readout method of the image sensor has been further optimized to produce higher-definition images with a sense of depth. The D810 is designed to make the most of the range of high-quality NIKKOR lenses, opening up the possibilities of creative expression for movie makers. HDMI output can be used to simultaneously record directly to an external recorder, providing an additional level of flexibility and smooth transition of tonality.
Dual-format video recording
The D810 features support for two recording formats: full-frame- and cropped-format. The full-frame format provides outstanding results for movies filmed with a shallow depth-of-field, while the cropped-format recording offers an angle with a closer reach to the subject. These two angles of view can be achieved with a single lens, which enhances production efficiency.
36.3-megapixel image sensor for rich tonality
The D810 includes a 36.3 megapixel image sensor designed without an optical low-pass filterLOW-PASS FILTERAlso called an Anti-aliasing Filter.
A filter made of a birefringent material, such as Lithium Niobate, placed infront of the image sensor. The filter's purpose is to reduce moiré, caused by large scale interference between fine textures and patterns in the image and the fine matrix pattern of the image sensor. The low-pass filter works by scattering any optical point in the image into a cluster of four, and effectively causing micro blur and thus removing the aliasing and consequently the moiré pattern. Some high-end cameras are deliberately designed without any low-pass filter in order to maximize the sharpness of the captured image - possible moiré is the trade-off. to ensure images maintain rich tonality in any lighting conditions. The ISO sensitivity ranges from ISO 64 to 12800 and can be decreased to Lo 1 (ISO 32 equivalent), or increased up to Hi 2 (ISO 51200 equivalent) to suit any environment.
EXPEED 4 image-processing engine delivers unrivalled quality and performance
The EXPEED 4 image-processing engine provides a number of enhancements that boost image quality over its predecessor. Enhancements include improved noiseNOISEThe appearance of random pixels scattered over a photo, similar to the grain effect seen in film photography, which degrades photo quality almost as if it is stained. It occurs when taking photos in low-light conditions, with very slow shutter speeds on high sensitivity (ISO) settings. It is caused by amplification done by the sensor when high ISO settings are used. You can counteract digital noise by lowering the sensitivity (ISO) setting of your camera - the lower the ISO setting, the lower the noise in the image. Typically cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) will inherently produce less noise due to larger pixels on the sensor. reduction performance at high sensitivities, as well as upgraded depth and clarity in gradation rendering - thanks to a new “Clarity” option in Picture Control. Higher accuracy of automatic white balance and an increased number of continuous shots combine to enable the D810 to shine in terms of picture quality and performance. In addition, the adoption of a new CMOS sensor with the EXPEED 4 delivers high-speed continuous shooting at approximately 5 fps in full-frame format and approximately 7 fps in cropped-format, making captures of a broader range for both still and moving subjects possible.
Reduced vibration for clearer images
The D810 includes an electronic front-curtain shutter, which effectively reduces internal mechanical vibration. When the electronic front-curtain shutter is enabled instead of the mechanical shutter during mirror-up, the camera’s image sensor acts as a front curtain of the focal-plane shutter and this provides stability and minimal blur – particularly when shooting long exposures at night.
Superior dust-prevention and durability
The D810 features a robust, weather-resistant design that offers a comprehensive seal against dust and water droplets. A newly-designed, highly accurate and durable shutter has been tested for 200,000 cycles with the unit actually loaded on the camera, providing years of trouble-free image capture.
