Nikon Announces World’s Largest High Resolution Full-Frame DSLR Camera

Nikon has always been busy climbing new heights. It is just a matter of time that the company revealed its latest D4 flagship DSLR and a point-and-shoot with world’s longest zoom. The company is yet again with another release – a new special-format camera designed to capture photos with higher resolution than any other available DSLR.

The new camera is named as the D800. Shockingly, the camera snaps photos at an eye-popping 36.3-megapixels – more than double the maximum resolution of the D4 that snaps photos at 16.2-megapixel. Moreover, the D800 is capable of capturing ultra-crisp photos credit goes to its full-frame CMOS sensor that Nikon called as FX format. Here ‘Full frame’ means the image sensor is the same as a frame of 35mm film that is distinctly larger than a typical APS-C sensor in a normal DSLR.

In order to control such a massive number of panels, you need to have performance of the class and for that reason the new camera sports off a new image processor named the Expeed 3. According to Nikon, with both full frame sensor and processing engine, makes the pixel count of the camera the world’s highest. However, to qualify for the claim, the company has to include DSLRs interchangeable lenses with full-frame lenses.

Considering the D800, it has all the features of a DSLR – you will be able to take lenses out smoothly, capture video at 1080p, 30 frames per second and an ISO that can be cranked up to 6400 or 25600. An optional MB-D12 battery pack is also available that offers a continuous-shooting mode through which can snap six full 36MP photos per second.

The D800 also features a 91,000 pixel RGB sensor that automatically detects human faces in the frame, establishes the right level of exposure and enables better auto-focusing, flash control and white balance. Nikon believes that the camera is best for landscape and artistic photography.

The D800 will go on sale in March with a price tag of $3,000. The D800E will be launched in April with a price tag of $3,300. You can have a look at some of the sample images taken by both cameras from Nikon here.
