Nikon D800 sample available on flickr

An update on my previous post: several readers noticed that Shinji Watanabe's flickr stream (NSFW) contains at least one image without EXIF data with a maximum/original resolution of 7360 x 4912 (just like those D800 samples):

Note that some of the images were taken with a Hasselblad H3D-39 that can go "only" up to 5412 x 7212. The image in question has a resolution of 7360 x 4912.

I bet that some of those were taken with a Nikon D800 camera.

I also bet that they will be removed in 3, 2, 1...

  • Looks like the rumors were all true and it’s even better than we hoped. Though the price was a tad higher than was initially reported it’s well within range and the 800E is just pudding on the cake! So much for all the people who said it wouldn’t make sense to outdo the D4. Just wondering now if the D4x will be a 50Megapixel? I mean how else do you outdo a D800E? Hmmm. Just thinking out loud.

    Canon users eat your heart out! At least for now.


  • Great information! I am wondering what the file size is for a 36mp raw file.

    • WP, If using lossless compression it would vary from image to image. But if I understand it correctly, for uncompressed it’s pretty simple math.

      X * Y * Bit depth which I assume is still 14bit.

      You could also look at it as being about twice the size (in each direction) of the D700 so the math would be simply:

      D700 file size squared.

      I am very happy to hear they didn’t dump Compact Flash cards. I simply can’t stand fumbling around at night trying to put in a tiny SD memory card.
