Nikon announced its latest DSLR camera – the Nikon D810 which offers features like the ability to shoot full-HD, a full-frame 36.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, and a wide ISO range to give photographers and filmmakers the ability to shoot under varied lighting conditions. The Nikon D810 will be available across India starting last week of July, but the company has not detailed the price yet.
Nikon D810 records 1080p movies at 60 fps (frames per second). The readout method of the image sensor has been optimised to produce better visuals. The HDMI output also allows for external recording.
Also featured on the D810 is a dual format recording option which includes the full-frame (FX) format and the cropped-format. Center-weighted and highlight-weighted metring allow users to achieve stable metring under changing light conditions. The highlight weighted metering detects the brightest areas of the scene and determines automatically the exposure.
It’s great to see Nikon boosting the video capabilities of its DSLR, but the one crucial thing that’s missing is the ability to record 4K video.

Nikon D810 has a magnesium alloy body, with weather and dust sealing as standard. You’ll need to make sure that you buy weather-sealed lenses for the best experience, though.
