There's a lot of hyperbole in the camera industry, but every now and then it is justified. Specifically, we have no problem with describing the FX format Nikon D800 as one of the most keenly anticipated DSLRs in a long time. Coming a full 3 1/2 years after its predecessor the D700, Nikon's newest DSLR offers a significantly more advanced feature set, including a pixel count of 36.3MP that - for now at least - bests the competition by a comfortable margin, and is comparable only with high-end medium format digital equipment.

On the rear panel of the Nikon D800 is a new 3.2-inch diagonal LCD panel that's just slightly larger than the 3.0-inch panel of the D700. (We understand that it's the same panel featured in the Nikon D4.) Total resolution is unchanged from the earlier unit at 921,600 dots, which equates to 307,200 pixels in a 640 x 480 (VGA) array. Also unchanged is the wide 170-degree viewing angle both horizontally and vertically and 100% frame coverage.

Nikon has also improved white balance performance in the D800, which should now yield more reliable results in general, and also includes an option to retain the warmth of incandescent lighting in Auto mode, something we've seen from quite a few other manufacturers

Unlike its predecessor, the Nikon D800 has dual flash card slots, and can be configured to write images simultaneously to both cards, write raws to one card and JPEGs to the other, stills to one card and videos to the other, or to use one card as primary and the second as an overflow when the first card is filled up. Unlike the earlier camera, though, its CompactFlash card support is limited to Type-I cards only (including UDMA-7 cards), with support for Type-II and Microdrive cards finally dropped. The other slot accepts standard Secure Digital cards, including not only the higher-capacity SDHC and SDXC types, but also the higher-speed UHS-I cards.

The Nikon D800 includes a high dynamic range function, similar to that seen recently on the D4. Although some will doubtless still prefer to do their HDR merges on a computer for the ultimate control, there's no question that in certain situations HDR can be a great tool in-camera as well. The Nikon D800's HDR mode captures two exposures with a difference of 1, 2, or 3 EV between exposures, and combines them into a single image. It's not clear if this includes microalignment capability, but three smoothing levels are available: low, medium, or high.

The D800 also includes Nikon's Picture Controls function, which offers six presets--Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape--and the ability for the user to customize these and port settings between camera bodies. There's now a dedicated button on the camera for access to picture controls, making it easier to change modes to suit your subject.
