Nikon launches the D800, D800E and D4 DSLR cameras in India
The D4, Nikon’s latest imaging flagship features a new 16.1 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor (36×23.9mm) which also ties in Nikon’s new EXPEED 3 image processing engine for superior image quality. Nikon has also added its well known 51-point autofocus system, which can shoot images at 10 frames per second. Nikon claims that the D4 has been designed to deliver optimum low-light performance through its new 91,000 pixel 3D color matrix and an unprecedented ISO range between 100 to 204,800. As far as video is concerned, the D4 will be able to shoot broadcast quality Full HD video. In addition to this, for live environments the D4 incorporates an Ethernet port for quick on the fly delivery to a PC/Mac and also enables remote control of the camera from a PC/Mac.
Apart from the D4, the D800 will feature a gargantuan FX-format 36.3 megapixel image sensor (35.9x24mm), the highest ever in a DSLR of its class and will also have the EXPEED 3 image processing engine. The D800 will feature a 91,000 pixel RGB sensor which will support Advanced Scene Recognition and will have features like Dual Image Area Full HD D-Movie allowing users to shoot in either FX based formats or DX based formats.
Besides the D800, the Nikon is also introducing a specialized model of the D800 called the D800E, which will cater to studio and landscape photographers. On the D800E, Nikon disables the anti-aliasing properties of the OLPF inside the camera, delivering light directly to the photodiodes, hence producing images with the raw lighting capabilities of the camera. The Nikon D4, D800 and D800E will be available in India from next week onwards for Rs 3,24,950, Rs 149,950 and Rs 164,950 respectively.
