Nikon D800E Review
The Nikon D800E is a black full-frame SLR digital camera body with 36.3 megapixel FX format sensor. It is the only 35mm camera in the world with the highest resolution.
It is almost similar to D800 with the magnesium alloy built that is weather-proof and could stand the test of time. Compared to the D800, it has comparable controls, higher resolutions and 100% view finder frame coverage. This camera is big but kind of proportionate in the hand. There are enough numbers of controls on the exterior of the camera. But they are arranged in such a way that is easily accessible sparing the user from digging into the LCD menu which is unquestionably extensive. All of the features that are in the D800E can be found in the D800 except for the Optical Low Pass IR disabled anti-aliasing filter property. However, with the disablement of the anti-aliasing property, the cost of the Nikon D800E increased. This change in the filter to make it less complicated seems not really spectacular. It is actually less noticeable.
The added amount doesn’t look proportionate to the change made on this D800E. Images from D800E can be cropped easier than the cropping you can do with the images from D800. Colors of the D800 and D800E are remarkably sharp, definitely detailed, and full of clarity. However, the D800E images are more natural or true-to-life. There are some drawbacks, though, for the D800E. Its resolution is quite high and that makes taking a steady picture a bit more difficult than on other cameras with lower resolution. This camera does well for large apertures. For sports photography, this camera is a little slow since it can make 4 fps only. This camera focuses satisfactorily. Even without the tripod but only handheld, the camera can capture images of insects and other small details. This camera is definitely heavy unless you are a professional photographer and are used to holding bulky and heavy lenses. For hand held shots, other photo shooters prefer the D700.
Battery life is not that long, so there’s a need to always prepare some extra batteries, in case you run out of power. Sometimes the playing back of images are disrupted or stopped. There are visible moiré on fabrics or clothes. Others don’t find this camera suitable for a wedding coverage. For the Nikon software, the menus are too many and quite complex. The megapixels are quite high and this size is beyond the necessity. There were others who still found the left autofocus defects on this camera which was originally found in the D800. But they were able to return and refund. Others returned and replaced. On the other hand, most of the users are lucky not to have encountered this autofocus problem. In summary, the Nikon D800E is an excellent camera but is more expensive. It is claimed to be an upgrade of D800 with only one change on its list of features which is on the filter. It is competitive but still hardly coping up with the latest trend and sophistication of the latest camera technologies on the market today which are offered at lower prices. The Nikon D800E is a great camera and still worth the purchase.
