Featured Camera Upgrades: Nikon D810 & D4s

If you own a Nikon D800 or D4 but have yet to test out what the new Nikon D810 or D4s have to offer, this post is for you. Check out these featured camera upgrades and compare them to their previous models. You’ll see some wonderful improvements and, best of all, you can pick one up at Adorama Rentals and Try It Before You Buy It.

Up first is the Nikon D810. Check out what’s new since the D800:

D810 versus D800/E: Specification highlights

  • 36.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor with no AA filter (D800E has effects of AA filter ‘canceled’)
  • 5fps maximum shooting in FX mode (compared to 4fps in D800/E)
  • New ‘Group Area AF’ mode (5 AF points can act together)
  • New electronic first-curtain shutter and redesigned sequencer/mirror balancer to reduce vibrations
  • New ‘highlight-weighted’ metering option (to preserve highlight detail in contrasty scenes)
  • 1080/60p movie recording with built-in stereo mic (compared to 1080/30p with monaural audio)
  • 3.2″ 1,229k-dot RGBW LCD screen (compared to 3.2″ 921k-dot RGB)
  • Power aperture available while shooting video to SD/CF card (compared to only when using HDMI)
  • The ability to record to memory card while simultaneously outputting video over HDMI
  • New ‘flat’ Picture Control mode (intended for videographers who need broader dynamic range)
  • Unlimited continuous shooting (previously 100-frame limit)

  1. While Nikon claims to have removed the arbitrary 100-shot limit during continuous shooting, my testing with the D810 indicates that the limit still exists. Has anyone else tested this? Do you know of any way to overcome that limit?
