Nikon D800 Pictures and Specs Leak, Packs 36MP Full-Frame Sensor

Keenly awaited by many professional photographers out there, Nikon's D800 DSLR was just pictured in a series of leaked images that just made their appearance on the Web together with some of the camera's specifications.

Quite a few changes were brought by Nikon to this professional DSLR when compared with its current predecessor, the D700, and the most important is definitely the addition of a new 36MP full-frame image sensor.

This is seconded by an Expeed 3 image processor, the combo enabling Nikon to offer a 100 to 6,400 ISO range, that can be expanded to 50 – 25,600.

Furthermore, the D800 will use the same 51-point AF system found in the D3s, but this time this will get a new face recognition mode.

The video recording capabilities of the camera were also enhanced to allow for shooting 1080p at 30fps, while for getting 60fps users will have to drop down to a 720p resolution.

The image quality of the videos recorded was however improved, according to Nikon Rumors, and the D800 is expected to top the current D3s in this chapter.

Other features that will make their way in the D800 include a 100% coverage viewfinder, dual memory card slots (most probably CompactFlash and SD), a built-in GPS and an USB 3.0 data transfer port.

Changes were also made to the body of the D800 as this was designed in order to be both lighter and smaller than the D700, but at the same time it received a larger rear display that is said to measure over 3-inches in diagonal.

Nikon's DSLR will be available in two versions, one of these coming with the antialiasing filter removed. No word on availability and pricing just yet, but some older rumors stated that the camera will be launched by the end of November.
