    leota

    Nikon claims its pro-grade D810 DSLR has “superior” and extensive weather sealing that helps keep moisture and dust out, but that doesn't mean you should treat it as being dust-proof.

    The Nikon D810 has one (exposure warning), but not the other (focus peaking). This is a huge step in the right direction, (especially since Nikon doesn't have Magic Lantern as an option). However, these are both features that mirrorless cameras have always had.

    So if you need to switch between different camera modes, you need to hold the MODE button and rotate the rear dial. Doing so will reveal 4 different modes: “P” (Program Auto), “S” (Shutter Priority), “A” (Aperture Priority) and “M” (Manual).

Nikon D810 sensor review: New DxOMark leader

Nikon has enjoyed phenomenal success with both the Nikon D800 and D800E models, and particularly so with latter model with its unusual optical low-pass filter that cancels out the anti-aliasing effects. So it comes as little surprise to see the usual mid-term update, the D810, consolidates the two by offering a newly developed full-frame 36-Mpix sensor without optical low pass filter. We’ve had the opportunity to put the new camera through its paces this summer in our Paris-based labs. Read on to find out how well the sensor in this new revamped model performs.
