36.3MP Full-Frame Nikon D800 DSLR Makes Official Debut (Exclusive Photos)

Posted by on Monday February 6, 2012 | Uncategorized

Nikon surprised pretty much no one tonight by officially announcing the much anticipated (and much leaked) 36.3-megapixel, full-frame D800 digital SLR.

The D800, which will sell for $2,999 (body only), has been teased by rumors sites on the Internet for several months. There will also be a version without a low-pass (aka “anti-aliasing”) filter, called the Nikon D800E which will sell for $3,299.

The Nikon D800, the successor to the 12MP Nikon D700 from 2008, will go on sale in mid-March. The Nikon D800E, which will be available in limited quantities, will start shipping in mid-April.

Though full details about the new camera(s) have appeared on blogs and websites in the last few days, because PDN signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), we have not been permitted to write about the camera until now. Our NDA, however, did give us some hands-on time with a prototype of the D800 and we were allowed to take exclusive photos of it. Those photos accompany this article.

Overall, the camera is what many people expected: a smaller version of the recently announced Nikon D4, the more rugged and faster 16.2MP flagship DSLR in Nikon’s lineup.
