Nikon D800 specs recap

This week I had three separate posts on the rumored Nikon D800 specs. Here is a quick recap.

This is the list of “confirmed” specs for the Nikon D800 (there are some new updates). My confidence on those is above 90%:

  • The name will be Nikon D800
  • 36MP sensor
  • 100% viewfinder coverage
  • Improved AF with face recognition – the D800 will still have 51 points AF point
  • Dual memory card slots (still not sure if they will be SD, CF or both)
  • USB 3.0
  • ISO range: 100 – 6400, ISO LO @ 50 and  ISO HI-2 @ 25600
  • The screen will be larger than 3 inches
  • The D800 will not have built-in GPS
  • Expeed 3 processor
  • There will be two different D800 versions/models, one with the antialiasing filter removed

This is the list of not confirmed specs from the initial D800 post (Google translation):

  • 4 fps continuous shooting, about 6 fps in DX mode with optional battery pack
  • Full HD video in 1920 × 1080/30p
  • Headphone jack, can input from an external device such as a PCM sound recorder, available also in new small wireless transmitter
  • 86K pixel split control, AF, exposure, white balance, etc. compatible
  • CF card and SD card slot
  • Shutter durability of 200,000 cycles
  • Market price is about 300,000 yen
  • Announcement on October 26, released on November 24
I still believe that Nikon will announce a new DX lens first and then the D800 with at least two other products.
