Nikon D810

Nikon recently unveiled their newest digital camera, the D810 which replaces the D800E and D800 twins. They have taken the no anti-alias filter route and provided it with completely upgraded internals:

  • A new 36 megapixels CMOS sensor with base sensitivity of ISO 64, expandable down to 32. The normal sensitivity range reach ISO 12,800 and expands to 51,200.
  • An EXPEED 4 processor with unprecedented image-parameters for finer control over image rendition than any other digital camera.
  • A revised shutter and mirror mechanism to reduce vibrations. The D810 can sustain 5 FPS continuous shooting with a deeper buffer than its predecessor.

Many more processing and capabilities have been refined too. Read Neocamera’s Nikon D810 review to see what it can do.

As sensors reach increasingly high resolutions, Nikon is removing anti-alias filters from their DSLRs. First, they started at the high-end with the D800E, twin of the D800  minus the anti-alias filter. This proliferated down to the D7100 and D5300, already an entry-level model, until finally arriving to their most basic entry-level DSLR, the Nikon D3300, which is the only one in its class to be without an anti-alias filter.

A review of the Nikon D3300 was just published on Neocamera. This entry-level DSLR features a 24 megpaixels APS-C CMOS sensor with ISO 100-12800 sensitivity range, expandable to ISO 25600. This is paired with a fast internal processor which lets it shoot continuously at 5 FPS and capture full 1080p HD video at 60 FPS.

Nikon D3300

This DSLR is quite compact and light-weight. It offers a simple user-interface with a single control-dial and few external controls. As usual though, it offers full manual-controls and a hot-shoe for external lighting. There are creative controls with scene modes and guided operation for beginners.

The key to the new anti-alias-filter-free sensor is that it resolves the maximum sharpness a lens lets through. The D3300 has a Nikon F lens-mount without AF-coupling and therefore requires a lens with built-in motor to autofocus. It also needs very high-quality lenses to take full-advantage of. This is where the low-price of the D3300 gets overridden since such high-end lenses are costly.’
