I recently purchased a new Nikon D810 camera and went nuts about it! It is exactly what I’ve been looking for in a DSLR camera. Nikon surely listened to the feedback as well as complaints of Nikon users about their previous models and therefore worked in producing a much better Nikon DSLR camera. Nikon D810 is almost perfect in many ways!
I am not here to convince you to buy Nikon D810 but just to rave and share what this Nikon model has to offer. I’ll start with the specifications of Nikon D810
- 36 MP high true resolution camera sensor
- Price: $3,100 (estimate)
- En-EL15 battery
- LCD screen: 3.2 inches equivalent to 1,229,000 dots
- Wide dynamic range of 14.8
- 64-12800 ISO
- EXPEED 4 image processor
Among the new and exciting features of this Nikon D810 are the following:
Better LCD screen
Nikon D810 has an LCD screen resolution of 1,229,000 dots. It is higher than the 921,000 dots found in D800 and D800E which means increased visibility and efficiency.
Compared to its predecessors, the D810 is quieter and makes less making it less distracting in a photo or when shooting in a solemn wedding ceremony.
Faster and more accurate auto focus
This is perhaps the best among the new updates in the Nikon series. The newest D810 has faster and more accurate autofocus. You will be impressed with its autofocus performance in low light because it work really well which is probably the reason many wedding photographers love using it. Churches and other wedding location are often dim making it difficult to get a good shot unless you have of course a great camera like this Nikon D810
Great low ISO Performance
ISO 64 plus 1/8000th of second helps lessen brightness when shooting in too harsh natural light especially in outdoor photo shoots. This improved ISO performance makes it easier for Wedding Photographers Los Angeles to get the brilliant shots they want.
Faster than D800 & D800E
It shoots faster by 1 frame per second than D800 and D810E making it a good choice in sports photography or similar types.
Better auto white balance
Some Nikon users used to complain about the auto white balance of other Nikon models and it’s a good thing Nikon noticed it and made Nikon D810’s auto white balance a lot better. Photographers from portrait photography twickenham are really impressed by it.
Lighter and impressive ergonomic design
Nikon D810 is very easy to hold because it only weighs around 880 grams camera body only and 980grams if you include the battery and memory card. Its predecessors weigh around 900 grams camera body only and 1,000 grams when battery and memory card are placed inside.
Longer battery life at 33% improved capacity
Battery is definitely important in photo shoots and the longer battery life, the more pictures you can take and later choose from. It is still best of course to bring an extra when covering an event so you can take pictures until the event ends.
Nikon D810 costs around $3,300 (camera alone) but you can also buy it in a kit where you can save a few hundreds. Some may find this camera too expensive but well if are really serious in photography and can afford to buy it then go ahead and make the purchase. It is definitely worth every penny you spend.
