The Nikon D800E

Every Photo will Astound. Every Video will Dazzle.

Hold in your hands an HD-SLR able to capture images rivaled only by those produced with a medium-format camera: extremely low noise, incredible dynamic range and the most faithful colors. Meet the Nikon D800E, a 36.3-Megapixel FX-format HD-SLR for professional photographers who require end results of the highest quality, who demand superior performance, speed, handling and a fully integrated imaging system. For the studio or nature photographer who looks for the ultimate sharpness, the D800E removes the "effect" of the optical low pass filter (OLPF) providing increased resolution in images. This brings 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. For cinematographers and multimedia professionals, 36.3MP means true 1080p Full HD cinematic quality video and includes inputs for stereo microphones and headphones, peak audio meter display, DX crop mode to maximize NIKKOR lens selection and angle of view and much more.

D800 and D800E

Which 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.

D800

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 mitigate the occurrence of Moiré and false color

D800E

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 does not utilize an optical low pass filter
  • Shooting RAW (NEF)
