On article Nikon D800 and D800E 36MP full-frame DSLRs announced (269 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tom_A: If this uses a bigger variant from Sony's sensor of the NEX-7, which is possible since if I am not misremembering Nikon often uses Sony sensors, and the megapixel numbers scale up similarly with the sensor surface area, then this camera could offer both incredible resolution and for most usages acceptable high iso performance (from the NEX-7 review). A great combination, then.
Curious for test pictures.
Obviously you'll need to use top flight nikon glass to really benefit from the extra pixels.
Now the remaining question is: should I go for the normal one or the one without the anti alias filter...

FX version of D7000 sensor.

Bokeh Bro: The D800. This IS a conundrum. These 36.3 million pixels are each 4.9 microns by 4.9 microns on a side. Electrical noise and optical crosstalk issues aside, the smaller the better. Right? Well you have to look at what WILL limit your picture resolution. It's going to be the pixel size OR it's going to be your optics. Perfect optics forms a point of light distributed across one of these 4.9 micron by 4.9 micron pixels for a color wavelength of 0.55 microns (green) at f/3.45. Longer, redder wavelengths start spilling over this pixel boundary as does higher f/nos. When you read Nikon's website for the optical performance of their Nikkor lenses, none of them are perfect. "Sharp as a tack" just isn't good enough for the D800. So Nikon should tell us what small subset of its lenses actually delivers the best resolution you can achieve from the D800. This way, if you're interested in picture resolution, you can spend your money wisely between the sensor and the lens combination.

36mp on FX is about 16mp on DX. That's D7000. D7k equipped with one of the best low light sensor out there(let us put aside oil spot and heat problems).

Mike Koo: You guys can call this camera ugly, but Marc Newson designed this. And people pay him millions to design their stuff. I personally love this design.

What happened to the world we lived in.. people get million dollar pay check for a toys like this.

GSD_ZA: Who's Marc Newson? This thing looks like one of those $10 Lomography cameras.

If we take this camera as a benchmark of his design skills, I think he's an unimaginative designer.

carsten böttcher: Some nice ideas but thanks to Marc Newson it looks like a plastic toy.

Agree. I almost can't believe it was design by a famous designer! Aren't designers supposed to design some good looking things? Unbelievable.

Francis Carver: Gee-whiz, thanks for (almost) nothing, Sir.

"DSLRs will always stay at the top' Yamaki told us - 'the benefit of a DSLR is of course the optical viewfinder."

Interesting. Of course:

1. DSLRs will probably go bye-bye in 8-10 years time.

2. You do not have to have a mirror in a camera for it to have an optical VF. Doesn't Mr. Yamaki know this, I wonder?

Re. the SD1 -- that is probably the most crazily priced DSLR body out there at the moment. What were they thinking, for cripe's sake?
Also, how about putting some VIDEO FEATURES into your cameras, like everybody else is already doing for quite some time, Sigma?

EVF can take advantage of nightvision tech.. grainy but a lot better than seeing nothing.

AbrasiveReducer: What really catches my eye is the lack of an anti-aliasing filter. Engineers will tell you that removing the AA filter makes no difference. This is false. Depending on the amount of blurring your AA filter is doing, it makes a big difference. It's true that you will occasionally get artifacts but it doesn't happen often enough to make it worth the intentional blurring caused by the AA filter. If Fuji can keep the artifacts to a minimum, maybe, just maybe we could be seeing the end of these blurring filters.

If there is no difference, why put it there? AA filter's purpose is to blur image slightly, to eliminate moire. That is what I've been told. Removing it does make a differenc

In reply to:

tkbslc: All I can do is laugh at all the people who bashed the 1DX because this new Nikon was going to be 34MP. Turns out Nikon and Canon have similar ideas for what makes a flagship camera.

Looks like a great competitor to the 1Dx, but again, funny about the resolution.

The Nikon they talked about is D800, not D4.

HiRez: Meh. It looks nice, I'm sure it's an excellent camera. That said, it doesn't seem like much of a leap over the D3. If you need HD video, that's obviously a big deal, and we'll have to see if there's been some major leap in ISO performance. But it doesn't seem like they did anything really innovative here (like X100 hybrid VF type thing). And why did they get rid of the AE-L/AF-L button?

I guess we now know what to expect of the D800: evolutionary changes. Probably same sensor as D4, with HD video, maybe 6 fps, and not much else different. Hopefully priced at $2,500 or so, but more likely $3,000.

This camera is for pros. The don't always need new features, what important is reliability.

So why make a new model? Coping with trends like GPS, LAN etc etc. Everything else pretty much the same.

tourtrophy: I am surprised Fuji X100 and X10 were not mentioned.

IMO, x100 is more like in G12 segment - advanced compact digital camera.

Maybe he/she is referring to the disappointment over the announcement of 1 system rather than a DSLR.
