Nikon D800 review: Nikon D800
8, ISO 250 Exposure: 1/320, f/14, ISO 250 Exposure: 1/50, f/1.4, ISO 800 Exposure: 1/80, f/10, ISO 100(Credit: CBSi) ConclusionAn excellent addition to the Nikon SLR line, the D800 does not disappoint on any front. If you don't need the machine-gun speeds or hefty size of the D4, this camera provides a very satisfying photographic experience

Excellent camera at an amazing price!
Purchased preowned via Amazon fulfillment and could not be happier! Amazing saving to new item, I did homework and found this unit had only 35,000 shutter counts, about 17% of the standard expected. It arrived packaged professionally, no issues what so ever when putting it through its paces. The 36m...

So far so good. Have owned a a couple of cameras and have progressivley upgraded as my skills have improved. This is defintitely not your grandpa's camera and not one to buy if this is going to be your first DSLR. Even after mastering the D610 the D800 still presents a bit of a learning curve, albei...

Quality and pro features with a catch
I am a pro photographer and purchased this camera with great enthusiasm! Initially, I was very impressed with the image quality, exceptional low light performance, and pro feature set. The ergonomics are terrific (typical of Nikon DSLRs), and it has full manual control - with live previewing, of ape...

Great Camera But . . .
The features and performance of the D800 is unsurpassed in my opinion. Very very good camera. Very happy with the resolution. You can virtually crop to the smallest detail ( in RAW format ) without fear of losing detail. Beware of two major points: 1)Get a large memory card when shooting in RAW. Som...

Great bargain
I was looking for something with a few more megapixels then my current camera when I came across this used D800 Nikon body. When I buy something used I never know what's going to show up so I keep the bar of expectation kinda low. And since I had 30 days to return it I figured I'd give it a shot. It...

The cost of the piece is equal to what was ...
