There has been some exciting news for the Shutterbug in recent days.
In recent years, Nikon has widely become known for its exceptional sensors and processors. It’s always been known as a solid choice for photographers. But this time, Nikon entered in the videographer world.
The D810 has a new CMOS sensor, but boasts the same 36.3MP as the D800 AND also shoots in H.264 at the same bitrate as the D800. Nikon pulled out its A game to drastically increase its video capabilities, and set a new standard for DSLR filmmakers.
First of all, the D810 has Zebras. It shoots 1080p at 60fps allowing you to capture more detail at slow motion which is because of it’s new EXPEED 4 processor. In addition, its got an all new internal stereo mic, along with mic and headphone jacks, an increased battery life of 33%, and a dropped native ISO of 64. It has a compact flash, two SD card slots, and the new ability to send clean, uncompressed HDMI out to an external recorder while simultaneously recording to the SD or CF. There is an all new flat picture control profile, and the new sensor is said to drastically decrease the amount of pesky noise and aliasing that has plagued Nikon in the past. For all time-lapse shooters, it has a smooth exposure transition feature to make sure your shots are consistent and comparable to previous takes.
