Design and construction
For those who are frustrated with pictures shot while trying to awkwardly hold a small point and shoot camera or a smartphone camera, the Nikon D810 is a revelation. The right handle is a perfect size, making it easy to hold the D810 comfortably. And most of the camera’s buttons are easy to reach, while maintaining the camera DSLR normally. I should mention here that Nikon set the control knob and the layout of what she had with the predecessor of this device – D800 – which may frustrate some users migrating to the D810 from the older model. I thought the button layout was good with the D810, but those accustomed to the button layout of the D800 may not agree.
This model is a heavy camera, weighing nearly 2 pounds without the target. But Nikon designers have done a good job of designing the D810, distribute the weight evenly, making the well-balanced unit. However, I recommend having a neck strap attached to this model if you will use it for a full day of photography, such as digital SLR D810 is heavy enough that it will use your arms after a few hours of transportation around.
As with most digital SLR cameras, the Nikon D810 performance speeds are very good when using the viewfinder of the camera to frame the photos, but the slow performance levels when using the framing scenes using the display screen. When shooting with the viewfinder, you can record images at speeds up to 5 frames per second at full resolution, which is a good performance compared with other digital SLRs, but not a high level of performance range. There is no noticeable shutter lag with this camera, and shooting shot delays are minimal. You will not miss many photos spontaneous waiting for this model to start either,
Another advantage to the viewfinder shooting is that you save battery power compared to using the screen to frame the scene. When shooting primarily with the viewfinder, you should be able to take pictures for hours on a single battery charge, which is an excellent performance.
Nikon D810 also gave a pair of memory card slots, one for the CF card and one for SD cards. CF cards offer higher performance levels as SD cards, which will appeal to advanced photographers, the optional dual memory card slot is another example of how the D810 features you can follow to improve your photography skills.
The display is a high quality, measuring an average of 3.2 inches diagonally and offering more than 1.2 million pixels resolution. It is unfortunate Nikon has chosen not to do this or articulated activated touch screen display. Surprisingly for a camera in this price range, the D810 does not offer either integrated Wi-Fi connectivity.
Keep in mind that the high price of Nikon D810 is not the only cost you will encounter with this model. You must purchase interchangeable lenses for use with the D810, as you must do with all DSLR cameras. Nikon has dozens of interchangeable lenses available for F lens mount D810, which means you’ll have no problem finding the right lens to do the job you want in a special photo shoot. You’ll just have the budget for extra lenses with this or any other digital SLR camera.
Nikon D810 as a pro-sumer camera, which means it is suitable on the market between professional digital SLR models and consumer digital SLR models. D810 and the image quality allows it to dominate pro-sumer market as FX full frame image sensor (measuring 35.9 x 24 mm or 1.41 x 0.94 inches) creates pictures of stunning quality. The large image sensor easily transported 36.3 megapixel resolution of the camera.
With the Nikon D810, you can shoot in JPEG, RAW or TIFF formats, which contributes to the flexibility of this camera. And Nikon’s designers do not forget about the video features with impressive camera, providing full HD video up to 60 frames per second. The D810 does not, however, offer 4K video.
The D810 creates sharp images, if you work with the upgrade option to easily use manual focus option or autofocus precise 51 points of the camera. Nikon removed the anti-aliasing filter of the image sensor on this model, which allows him to create sharper images than older DSLR cameras. (With improved image sensor technology in recent years, anti-aliasing filters are not needed as often as they used to be.)
If you have a few thousand dollars available for buying digital SLR camera, the Nikon D810 is easily the model on the market right now that I recommend. Its image quality is different, even against other DSLRs and Consumer- level pro-sumer, which is not easy to do. The D810 is a flexible model offers advanced photographers the ability to customize settings and features to meet their needs. Less experienced photographers will have the opportunity to use this successful model right out of the box, but it will also respond to their needs with a lot of manual control options by improving their skills.
