Black Box: I'm always surprised just how easily manufacturers reveal the mistakes they made with a certain model... after the next generation has come out. Oh, yeah, the shutter shock was terrible, but we fixed it in the new model. Yeah, there were some issues with this and that, but it's okay now, we fixed it.

I'm just trying to imagine someone who bought this camera at $3000+ a year ago (or whenever that was) and now finds out that he can have them all fixed! For another $3000+. Gosh, Nikon is good at solving customers' problems!

I totally agree with the previous two posts. If you are disappointed that Nikon keeps bringing out better cameras, and that at some point your own camera is not the best anymore, you need to get your head checked.

For the record I have one of these flawed cameras myself (D600), and I have never been as happy with a camera in my life.

Lassoni: What's up with ppl demanding 4k of every dslr now? Can't smartphone take good enough video? You can take a smartphone into a bar / nightclub and take pretty good video. What about campact camera for video? Wouldn't a olympus sh-50 fare well enough?

To answer your question: No, a smart phone can't take good enough video, assuming you want high quality results.

This debate has been done to death already, so I'm not going to bring it up again, but a full frame DSLR like the D810 has many great advantages for recording video compared to a compact camera or a phone.

Wubslin: Another failure from Nikon. I guess I should be disappointed, but I can't even muster disappointment any more.

How Nikon are still in business is a mystery.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out ;)

The only thing I don't like about this camera is the price. I will probably get one in a couple of years when it has come down a bit, and my D600 is starting to show it's age.

Have you ever tried a Nikon camera? I can assure you I don't struggle with the greens on mine ;)

camerosity: I'll keep my D700, thanks.

I just sold mine to get the D600, and I sure don't regret it ;)

Morpho Hunter: Ah ...must due be the 36mp sensor ...why else would a camera that cannot produce sharp hand-held images when viewed at 100% win such an award?

snow14: this is clearly about high MP people love the high miga pixels camera they gave that award to the 5dii in 1999 becuase it has highest MP at the time of release,not many people going to print billboard size and benefit from 36mp also there are not many lenses in nikon linup that has good enough resolving power to take advantage of all that36 MP ,i guess the markting team at nikon did good job.

@photo nuts

So true. It doesn't matter if the D800 is a good camera. If any part of the camera is not made by Nikon the camera itself shouldn't get any praise, just like the iPhone didn't get any praise since many components in it were made by Samsung...

And yes, I'm sarcastic :P

michael2011: So D800 is about same as D300S and worse than Canon 7D and Pentax 5-K which cost 1/2 to 1/3 as much? That's a head scratcher to me.

BTW, pictures in the AF review section don't show up in my browser. Links are broken?

Doesn't it state that the points are relative to other cameras in its class?
It's not supposed to be compared with cheaper types of cameras.

Photographically Speaking: the review makes me wonder what camera will ever get a superlative review sans lame criticisms from DPR. None, I think. 'Nough said.

Silly comment. There is no such thing as the perfect camera, even the best ones have flaws. I think it's good of dpreview to highlight any potential drawbacks, and with a gold award it's not like the camera was punished that hard for the cons it had ;)

In reply to:

Jogger: The only legit Con on that list is the FPS, but, how many 36mp cameras shoot more than 4 FPS?

True, but you have to view the specs indepentendly. Amateurs in particular use a single camera for everything, and don't have the luxury of getting the D4 as well (me being one of them) ;)

@DioCanon
I think it's you who needs to take a closer look in the history books.
Releasing the first FF sensor isn't all that impressive when Nikon were pioneers in bringing us digital SLR's in the first place. The same goes for video in DSLR's, where Nikon was first (if only by one day).

In the end both brands have been important in the development of camera technology. Picking a handful of things either did first to claim they are more innovative overall is just silly IMO.

Wow, that's pretty impressive.
A lot of people will use the D800 for everything, and having good high ISO performance as well as high resolution is great ;)

In reply to:

tampadave: I downloaded the ISO 200 samples of the D800 and canon 7D (which I own). I had to increase the image size of the 7D sample to match the size of the D800 sample as it appears on my monitor. Some parts of the Nikon image look better, but other parts of the Canon image look better too. To my untrained pixel peeping eyes, overall, it's a push.

The sample shots doesn't seem to be in focus everywhere. Certain parts are much sharper than others.

Crop cameras have more DOF and should have more parts in focus, making them look sharper in comparison.

williejr: 1DX will beat the D4 hands down in specs, picture quality and video once it is all said and done. D3S stills are better according to a lot of Nikon forums.

Sure ;)

Hughesnet: I got in a preorder for 2 of the 64gb ATT 4G ones. Can't wait for the 16th. Ignore the Android fanboys posting here. This tablet has twice the resolution of theirs, supports usb connection to your camera or a SD card, has iPhoto, has a great built in cam. There is nothing photography related their android tablets can do better.

The Apple crowded survived sub par resolution in the iPad 2 for a while, so I don't think waiting a couple of months for a similar display in an Android tablet should be too hard ;)

glasswindow: On the specs page you still have the EN-EL3e from the D700 listed.

Nicolai is right. The D700 goes to 25600 in HI2, not 12800 as stated in the comparison chart.
