Nikon Announces the D810 DSLR Camera and D810 Filmmaker's Kit

Photography News: The Nikon D810 Updated DSLR Camera Includes a New Sensor, New Processor, Improved ISO, 51-Point AF, 50/60p Video, and More, Now Available at B&H Photo Video

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 26, 2014) - B&H Photo would like to share the announcement of the Nikon D810 with the photographic community. Building on the success of the D800/D800E, the D810 is a versatile offering that adds many upgrades to both form and function.

Like the D800 and D800E, the Nikon D810 has a 36.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor; however, the D810 has removed the Optical Low Pass Filter, for increased image sharpness. Read more about the Nikon D810 DSLR camera here: 

The new EXPEED 4 image processing engine is 30% faster than the EXPEED 3, for up to 1,200 shots and up to 40 minutes of video recording per battery charge. It also reduces the appearance of noise throughout the ISO range, and it supports 1920 x 1080 HD video in 60p. The ISO range has been expanded, from 64 to 12,800, with an extended range of 32-51200, double that of the D800's 50-25,600.

The addition of the 12-bit uncompressed RAW SIZE S file format gives photographers the option of shooting smaller files. In addition to the Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, and Landscape modes, the Nikon D810 adds Flat Picture Control, which is ideal for video capture, and a Clarity option for all Picture Control settings. All settings can be adjusted in 0.25 steps, giving you fine-tuning control. Two more new features include the ability to use Spot White Balance while shooting in Live View mode, and the addition of three more white balance presets for a total of six. Review all features, upgrades and specifications on the Nikon D810 camera here.

The D810's metering system includes the previously existing 3D Color Matrix Metering III and the Advanced Scene Recognition System, with the addition of Group Area AF. New Highlight Weighted Metering has also been added, which is ideal for spot-lit scenes. While the D800/D800E had its face-detection analysis always on, it can be turned off with a custom setting in the D810.

The Advanced Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor now has Group Area AF, which uses five AF sensors together in a group to focus on subjects located within a certain area. Up to 51 AF points are available with 3D tracking, as is Auto Area AF.

The D810 improves upon the D800/D800E's frame advance rate by 1 fps in all modes. It delivers 5 fps in FX Crop Mode, 6 fps in DX Crop Mode, and 7 fps in DX Crop Mode with the addition of an MB-D12 battery grip. Unlimited continuous shooting enables you to shoot 4- to 30-second exposures in CL or CH mode as long as the memory cards and/or battery will allow. A redesigned sequencer/balancer mechanism allows for quiet operation in Quiet and Quiet Continuous modes, and an electronic front-curtain shutter reduces internal vibrations. Full aperture metering in Live View is added, as is image area selection during Live View.

The D810 increases the ISO range to 64-12800, allows you to record to a memory card and external recorder together and select your audio frequency range. It also adds video features such as interval timer and time-lapse exposure smoothing, auto ISO in manual mode, and a built-in stereo microphone. Nikon D810 product information. 

The D810's LCD monitor is slightly larger than its predecessor, at 3.2", with 1,229k-dots. The Live View mode displays a split screen zoom for stills, and zebra stripes/highlight display for video. A deeper grip, secondary info button, and customizable color for the LCD combine for a more ergonomic design. The optical viewfinder has improved coatings to render a brighter and more accurate view.

The D810 is available as a body only, or in a Filmmaker's Kit. The kit includes three lenses: the AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G ED, AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G, and the AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G. Also included in the kit are two spare batteries, an ME-1 stereo microphone, two variable ND filters, an HDMI cable, and an Atomos Ninja-2 video recorder.

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions?

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...

With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
