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
Light unit with almost everything. As a nature photographer with my ability to reach the great satisfaction, D800 is the camera I enjoy most .I still love to use D2x and D3 as backup. I carry D800 and D3 in my bag,almost all the time. With my nature work using D3 and D2x, D800 is great addition to my work. August 22, 2014
Just posting a nice Pic Daddy long legs (pholcidae) with D800 and 105mm F2.8. July 30, 2014
Excellent Camera I have been shooting with this camera for a little over a year and am very happy with its characteristics. Excellent low light shooting and incredible detail. I have used it all over the world shooting wildlife as well as landscapes and people. I have added it to my D3x when traveling and especially like it on days that I don't want to carry around the weight of the D3x. Both of these cameras perform especially well when paired with high end Nikon lenses. The picture of the owl shown was shot at 8:00 in the evening with the D800, a 200-400 f4.0 lens, at 1600 ISO. Amazing color and clarity. Well worth the money. July 22, 2014
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

In the D800 “Product Brochure,” the file sizes are shown as being smaller for “Lossless Compressed” than for “Uncompressed” (e.g. 32.4 meg vs. 57.0 meg at 12-bit “FX” mode) but the capacity of an 8 gb memory card is shown to be the same (133 files) in both cases. The same type of relationship occurs for 14 bit and for “DX” mode. The D4 product brochure shows similar information.

Why is the file size so different and the memory card capacity the same for “Lossless Compressed” versus “Uncompressed”?

Answer: 
File sizes are approximate, and depend on the scene being photographed. Likewise, compression ratios vary depending on content of the image. In other words, no two images are likely to be exactly the same size. On the other hand, given the randomness of file sizes, Nikon and the camera attempts to give the user the best estimate -- perhaps quite a conservative one -- of card capacity, since there is no "correct" number for a photo file's size.

Answer: 
CF cards, currently, have faster transfer rates and in some cases, depending on the manufacturer - we recommend both Lexar and Sandisk cards - higher capacity. After that, it would depend on whether your preference is for the larger easier to handle CF cards or the smaller, more portable and versatile SD cards.

The brochure shows expected file size reduction when shooting RAW with lossless compression: at 14 bits, 74MB uncompressed becomes 41MB for FX and 32MB becomes 19MB for DX crop; at 12 bits 57MB uncompressed becomes 32MB for FX and 25MB becomes 15MB for DX crop.

Why, then, do the card capacity figures (number of images that can fit on an 8GB memory card) not change accordingly? Wouldn't more images fit if one is using lossless compression in comparison to recording uncompressed?

If there isn't, there should be. I'm sure this can be implemented in a firmware update. The D800 is on par with medium format cameras, and the one huge thing that would the results look more like medium format would be to shoot in the same aspect ratio. If this feature isn't a part of the camera, Nikon, if you're listening, please add it!

Answer: 
Other than the very slight image quality differences, 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.

Your answer on below HDMI query is poorly worded. Vague. Of course "1080I is interlaced only".

DOES THE D800 HDMI OUTPUT PROVIDE 1080P (PROGRESSIVE)?

There are many suggestions being made that say the D800 HDMI output is a PLAYBACK QUALITY output, and not a RECORDING SIGNAL output that will provide for a superior (uncompressed) means of acquisition. Nikon, could you please describe the nature of the HDMI output in the D800. Does it provide a "recording quality" output for superior (uncompressed) data acquisition?

Thank you for answering my previous HDMI queries.

Answer: 
Update: here is where the confusion seems to lie, regarding HDMI quality:
the "1080i only" HDMI output refers to live view/monitoring (page 270), and the Movie settings (page 70) determine HDMI output to recording device. So if one chooses "1920X1080;24fps" in the movie settings, then that is what is being fed through the HDMI, bypassing in camera compression. Correct me if I'm wrong.

D800 specs state that Full HD video might be only 20min long. Why so short? My experience is that 32Gbyte SDHC card and Full HD camcorder with 30Mbit MPEG4 codec provide about 2 hours of FullHD video. Pls clarify.
Thanks, Pavel.

Answer: 
Yes, you are limited to 20 minutes at full HD. Primary function is a still camera, video is secondary. All the DSLR's have about the same time limits on video.

I have made a test image with my new out-of-box D800 and want to compare same image made with D700, but PS in CS5 will not open the NEF RAW image. When I try to open the image, a message says, "the file appears to be from a camera model which is not supported by the installed version of Camera Raw."

I have installed the ViewNX2 software, but don't know if I missed a step somewhere.

Answer: 
Make sure ACR is up to date, you might have to wait a bit for Adobe to release updates or you could covert to jpeg / tiff in View NX 2 and then open in CS5

Answer: 
The right selection for a lens will depend a lot on the type of photography that you are interesting. Some photographers look for faster lenses (large aperture ex. f/2.8), wide angle, Telephoto, Macro or zoom lenses.
Please visit our website and use the lens finder tool in order for you to make your selection base on your needs.

Dear Nikon,

I am enjoying the new D800! However, I am hugely disappointed that it is not compatible with the WT-5. The WT-4 only supports 802.11 a/b/g (lacking n) and is not compatible with the iPad/iPhone control.

Why did Nikon choose to forego the WT-5 compatibility? This should be a standard feature on pro cameras. At minimum, could we please soon have an updated WT-4 with 802.11 n and iPad/iPhone control support?
