D800 and D800E

Which camera is right for you?

Every Nikon DSLR camera uses an optical low pass filter (OLPF) in front of its sensor to slightly blur the image at a pixel level in order to reduce the occurrence of false colors and moiré that can appear when shooting repetitive and/or fine patterns. For the vast majority of photographers the D800 provides an ideal balance between sharpness and effectively prevented moiré and false color, ideal for shooting using all file formats. D800E is a specialized camera that removes the "effect" of the OLPF which results in a slight gain in sharpness and resolution and is recommended for studio and still life professionals but carries an increased possibility that moiré and false color will appear.

Strikes an ideal balance between sharpness and preventing the occurrence of false color and moiré for consistent performance
Ideal for:
  • All shooting situations
  • Photographers shooting RAW (NEF), JPG or TIFF images
  • Photographers who do not want to adjust their workflow (via software) to reduce the occurrence of moiré and false color
Slight increase in sharpness and resolution with increased occurrence of false color and moiré
Ideal for:
  • Studio, commercial and still life photographers who can control their shooting conditions, lens selection and aperture choice, as well as use of software (Capture NX2) to reduce the occurrence of false color and moiré
  • Medium format photographers whose current digital system do not utilize an optical low pass filter
  • Shooting RAW (NEF)
  • More information on moiré Behind the Scenes: D800/D800E

D800 and D800E Image Comparison

Comparison of false color and moiré

With the D800E, false color and moiré may be noticeable when shooting repetitive and/or fine patterns.

Comparison of resolution

Compared to the D800, the D800E reproduces textures with slightly higher resolution for sharper rendering and greater depth.

What Else is Different?

Other than the very slight image quality differences described above, the D800 and D800E perform exactly the same. Focus speed, exposure metering, shooting speed, movie recording, accessory compatibility, control location and function, and all other aspects are identical.

Additional Features:
Standard ISO 100-6400, expandable to ISO 50-25,600 equivalent

Added ISO settings of Lo-1 (ISO 50 equivalent), Hi-1 (ISO 12,800 equivalent) and Hi-2 (ISO 25,600 equivalent) extend versatility.

Continuous shooting at up to 4 fps at full FX-format resolution

Commercial image quality teams with speed and handling to create new shooting possibilities—in the studio or on location. Shoot DX-format images up to 6fps using the optional MB-D12 Multi Power Battery Pack and batteries other than the EN-EL15

Rugged magnesium alloy construction

Effectively protected from invasive dust, moisture and tested to exceed 200,000 cycles.

Compatible with third party video accessories

As your multimedia work grows in importance, know that the D800 is compatible with a growing selection of third party video accessories.

High speed CF and SD dual memory card slots

CF cards compatible with UDMA6 as well as UDMA7 are supported. For SD cards, SDXC and UHS-1 are supported.

Two axis Virtual Horizon graphic indicator

Use either the LCD monitor or viewfinder to check if the camera is level—horizontally or with forward or rear rotation.

Rechargeable EN-EL15 Battery

Up to approximately 900 images and 60 minutes of HD video per charge.

Debunking all myths I recieved my D800E in time for a two-week photo trek through Peru. It was intended to be used as a back-up to my D4, but it quickly became the go-to camera for portraits and lanscape shots. The camera perfomed wonderfully under all types of conditions. Unlike all the reviews I had read, this camera can indeed be: Hand-held at slow speeds instead of only being tripod mounted. Used at high ISO speeds with incredible detail. Used for shots involving a lot of textile and colors. If moire is an issue, stop down the lens a bit more and eliminate any concerns. The lenses most often used on this camera were the 50mm f/1.4 and the 16mm - 35mm zoom. I am attaching some photos and 100% crops to show detail. All are hand-held, speeds up to 1/90th and ISO between 200 and 800. May 7, 2012
Great Camera I went from a D3200 to the D800 and found it easy to learn. I use it with a Nikon 500mm F/4 super telephoto lens and love it. It recently developed a focusing issue and is currently in the shop at Nikon, forcing me to use my D7100. There is night and day difference in the two cameras, even though the D7100 is an excellent camera. My wish and advice for Nikon is to improve this camera by removing the ability to do video and concentrate all the electronics and image processing for still photos and maybe to increase the ability to shoot and focus a bit faster. I have never done a video with the camera and have no intention of doing one. I love outdoor photography and the resolution of this sensor is outstanding. The new D810 just looks like a D800 E to me with a different number. Make a camera for just still photography for us die hard camera buffs! June 28, 2014
just I loved...... Awesome detail,perfect pic quality. Good features . April 19, 2014
Amazing performer, sloppy QA A little background, I came here from a d5000 then a d7000 and now a d800, have been doing photography as a passion and as a profession for around 6 years. What to use it for: products, weddings, landscape, fashion, All around shooter for people who "KNOW" how to handle the beast. Or the learning curve will be steep and you might get disappointed quickly. What NOT to use it for: Pro Sports shooting or very fast paced action! (only for the modest burst rate) Let me break down the points; IQ: Superb. Enough said! The Image quality of this camera is quite amazing, it is extremely sharp, if you know how to use the tool and have good glass (not amazing, but good enough). Extremely useful (36 MP!!!!) for cropping or recomposing after fact and printing HUGE. ISO: Not very impressive, but in relation to the MP count and signal to noise ratios, it is well kept under control, The 6d and 5d 3 are way better even around ISO 800, but you sacrifice a lot in return. AF: auto focus system is quite amazing especially when in DX mode, as it covers mostly the entire frame! I haven't used it in complex situations much, but it sometimes lags in dim light, and that is to be expected to some extent. It also depends on the lens used for focusing speed. Battery performance: Not amazing, but adequate to my needs. Something you won't find out the easy way, the battery drains REALLY quick when plugged into the USB Port. This is apparently because the Camera stays ON the whole time it is connected, you could almost see the percentage falling . Nikon could easily work out a firmware update to fix such an issue I believe. Ruggedness: Very well built and sealed in a good manner, but nothing is perfect of course, on a fashion desert shoot the camera took quite a beating but the sensor also gained a few spots as well! Viewfinder/eye piece: bright, well placed, but not 100% comfortable to use, could be pumped out a little to help getting a more comfortable nose posture. What I like/ love: MP for large (I mean LARGE) prints, Dynamic Range, fine tuning control, Quality at low ISO. What could be better (personal preference): Controls layout (especially ISO button and Focus control), ergonomics, and ISO, Skin tones and colour reproduction is a little off for my taste, I prefer Canon's warmer skin tones, but Nikon's richer Dynamic range. What I dislike/ hate: Sensor was defective on my first unite (a complete vertical line of dead pixels), QA at Nikon is REALLY getting sloppy, if I face another issue like this with a Nikon product, I'm switching brands. Reliability is a MUST have when buying tools for business. I returned the unit and reseller will exchange it after inspection and after wasting a week of my time. How could this unite get out of the factory is beyond me! A unite aimed at hard enthusiasts to say the least should be inspected further in my humble opinion. Rating: 5 Stars for the very good balance between sensor size, Pixel count and Image Quality at this price range. The tool should not be punished for human mistakes at QA, should it?! ******Check your Camera and test it in in the Shop before you buy it.****** **A request for Nikon, PLEASE give us a firmware/ tool to do remapping of the sensor's dead pixels. So we don't have to SEND it to in or back to the store just to fix a couple of dead spots!** April 3, 2014
Truly Great Masterpiece I have the habit of buying things as soon as they are released. Had F4,D70,D700, before I heard about D800. Was too excited and couldn't wait to own one. Got it last year and put to use. Compared to D700 was a little tough to master initially but after I got the hang of it, never looked back. The output of this camera is amazing. Great detail and colour rendition. Always use it without flash with very satisfying low light results. It is truly Nikon's masterpiece. My advice to new users is to try better Nikkor lenses (My most favourite is 70-200mm f 2.8 VRII) ,and see the results on a good high definition computer monitor to really enjoy the potential of this great camera.

Answer: 
This really is not an answer but a confirmation of what dealers are saying:
Here is the reply I received from Adorama this morning:

We understand that you are seeking assurance that it (D800) will ship as soon as possible. We did some checking on your behalf. From what we see, we unfortunately cannot provide you any estimated date of arrival. That said, it is on order and often we are pleasantly surprised by sooner than expected delivery and are hopeful that we will be able to meet your request.
The item will automatically ship when it arrives. Please bear with us as we are at the mercy of the manufacturer. We hope to fulfill this order soon.
Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. We don’t like to do this to our customers, but sometimes matters are out of our control as the hold-up is at the manufacturer.

Answer: 
Dealers have already begun receiving shipments of D800s, however not in sufficient quantities to fill all of the pre-orders. If you have not pre-ordered a D800 it could be conceivably be mid to late May before dealers have stock that is not already sold.

Answer: 
Generally Nikon staff2 is correct). Though I would suggest using a class 10 card when shooting 1080p HD video onto an SD card. They are as cheap as chips now days so I wouldn't waist my time on a class 6 or slower. CF cards though are generally much faster than SD cards and will clear your buffer much more quickly with a top end CF card. Though this is really only an issue if shoot lots of photos very fast, not shooting video

Answer: 
It should not matter which card you use for Stills or Video, however you'd want to use a larger capacity card and/or faster speed rated card for video if you're shooting a lot of video.

Answer: 
That was a problem with the 5Dmk2 and isn't a problem with newer DSLRs. The D800 can record video for 29.59 seconds and then stops but this isn't due to heat issues, more down to European tax law (ridiculous as it sounds), You can turn the video straight back on again. With an Atomos Ninja hard drive you can record uncompressed video (instead of H.264 B frame (the B frame is important and is no longer the issue that it used to be (well done Nikon) (though if you as most Nikon staff or reps about it, they don't know what it is))) for much longer than that though.

Answer: 
In theory it is available but people all over the world who placed pre-orders (including myself) are still waiting for delivery (I suspect I won't get mine until May at the earliest (It depends on demand from where I ordered it). I would expect a bit of a wait if you order one now, though some places seem to have less of a wait. So you might be able to get it faster if you check around.

Answer: 
The D800 or any other DSLR doesn't have internal memory; it only has a DEMO memory, and once you turn it off the pictures are lost. Only in Compact Digital cameras (point and Shot) like the Coolpix offer limited internal memory.

What are the setting that really take effect on RAW files? I mean real effect in the pixels like exposure or ISO, not the ones attached in the metadata like WB.

Does Long Exposure NR have effect on RAWs? Does Active D-light have effect on RAW? Are there any other besides exposure or ISO? Thanks!

Answer: 
It is my impression that Long Exposure NR does impact Raw files. In this case the 2nd exposure is being used to identify hot pixels etc and is used to fix up the RAW data... Long Exposure NR can be considered as a means of adding real data to the RAW image. Since Long Exposure NR is actually improving the fidelity of the image data, it happens at the RAW level. Active D lighting on the other hand is changing the tone curve and modifies the tonal relationship of the pixels to one another. So the results of that operation are saved as jpegs. High ISO Noise reduction does not impact RAW files because the algorithm actually modifes the Data recorded by the sensor.

Nikon has been very diligent in preserving the RAW data so that post processing can extract the most possible information. WB settings are saved and can be applied to the RAWs in LR or wherever, but the data is not impacted until the user decides to do so. Things like vivid picture styles etc do a great job, but produce jpegs. Consequently, many folks shoot RAW + jpeg and apply the effects they want in camera with the knowledge that they can always go back to the RAW image and do the processing on their own.

I went to SHOOTING MENU -> HDR -> ON (single photo) & Exposure differential -> 2EV
According to the D800 manual the camera should combine to JEPG files and create on JPEG with -/+ 2EV.
I use a tripod and I am shooting JPEG.
After shooting there are 2 separate JPEGs!!!!! 1 with -2EV and one with +2EV and there is no combined JPEG??? Where is the file???

Can you tell me what is wrong with HDR?

Answer: 
sorry, but i have just tried the HDR function on my D800 (for the first time!) and it does NOT do what you describe, IF YOU CHOOSE SINGLE PHOTO OPTION. there's nothing to it, and no way to go wrong as long as you choose the correct option. take your time and try again. the HDR function works perfectly, as advertised.

Answer: 
Yes and no… Let me explain. When using the self timer, the mirror does not go up as soon as the shutter release is pressed. However, the MirrorUp mode (Mup) will handle this for you.
When using the mirror up mode, the first press of the shutter raises the mirror and the second press takes the photo. This is ideal when using a remote, but not so great when you don’t have one. However, once the shutter release has been pressed the first time in MirrorUp mode (the mirror is raised), it will automatically trigger the shutter 30 seconds later unless the shutter is first triggered by the shutter release. This means that Mirror Up mode may also be considered a 30 second timer with a mirror up occurring when the shutter release is triggered.

Answer: 
The self-timer lamp will start to blink. Two seconds before the photograph is taken, the self-timer lamp will stop blinking. The shutter will be released about 20, 10, 5 or 2 seconds after the timer starts.

Answer: 
There are a number of third party manufacturers producing underwater housings for the D800. I suggest you do a web search and you will find at least four manufacturers producing this type of housing. Be prepared for the price though. The housings tend to be just as expensive as the camera body itself.

Answer: 
The D800E does not use the optical low pass filter like the D800 does. There is no way to "turn off" the filter on the D800 or "turn on" the filter on the D800E. The article: http://www.nikonusa.com/Learn-And-E... explains the differences between the two models.
