D810 - D800 comparison at ISO 12800
Jul 18, 2014

I used ACR to compare the D810 with the D800, both at the exact same settings except for white balance. I had to lower the temperature of the D800 because it renders much warmer and it is still warmer in the crop below. It is hard to say if the difference comes from the cameras, from ACR or both. To my eyes the D800 looks a bit punchier. It also looks as if pictures from the D810 are about a fifth of a stop lighter. Regarding noise I can't see any meaningful difference.

Bottom line for me is that it will be hard to use the D800 and D810 next to each other because of the difference in white balance.

Crops are 100%, shot with the Nikkor AF-S 50mm F1.4G at F4 with 1/100 sec.
