Nikon D800

When Nikon announced the D4 DSLR a while back, they made it very clear that they wanted it to be a full-fledged multi-media machine. That sentiment has been carried down a level with the new D800, which boasts many of the same video capture features in addition to its massive megapixel count.

Nikon has tweaked just about everything that could be tweaked in its predecessor, D700. At the heart of it is a 36.3-megapixel full-frame (FX format) CMOS sensor. That's coupled with the Expeed 3 image processor. As a result, it has a maximum resolution of 7360 x 4912. That's roughly 150% the pixel count of Nikon's flagship D3X DSLR. To help accomodate all that data, is has both an SD and a CF card slot. It doesn't, however, accept the new XQD cards like the D4.

Standout Spec: A 36.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor
