Nikon D810 Released

Today Nikon announced the new Nikon D810 camera, replacing the D800. It’s impressive from the outset, that’s for sure! We’re very excited to see it released, and can’t wait to get our hands on one. The massive 36.3 megapixel resolution and greatly improved video capabilities are a promising prospect.


The camera comes in at £2,699 (UK) or $3299.95 (USA and other countries). That’s not as high as some people expected, due to the capability of this camera.

What’s New?

Here is a quick comparison between the Nikon D810 and the Nikon D800/D800E, looking at some of the most important features.

The Nikon D810 is expected to start shipping on the 17th July 2014, so there’s not long at all to wait. I expect this camera will be in high demand, so if you want to get your hands on one soon you need to pre-order.
