Nikon D800 Images/Specs Leaked

Nikon D800

It looks like the Nikon D800 has made its way onto the Internet, sporting full front and back shots of her bells and whistles.

Nikon Rumors revealed the images last night, along with a list of likely specifications, noted below.

  • Smaller and lighter than D700
  • Resolution: 7360×4912 (36MP)
  • CF+SD memory card slots
  • Slightly larger display
  • Excellent video quality, better than D3s
  • Video modes: 1080p/30/25/24 and 720p/60/30/25/24
  • AF identical to D3/D700

However, there’s still no word on the release date.

Of course, this is still a rumor – and it has been cooking along for quite some time now. Although, it is looking more and more like Nikon is going to release a full frame 36MP camera soon.

    why smaller than D700?
    looks like consumer, and actully kind of ugly the way it’s “cutted” on the one side…

  2. sjms says

    in the images supplied and nikons history of controls and usability/functionality could somone tell me what happened to the meter type selector? that in itself negates this a a real product. it looks like someone didn’t do their PS homework too well.

  3. sjms says

    CF and SD slots. it took Canon a few years to work out what a waste that was and on the 1DX finally pulled out the SD put in the 2 CF slots that Nikon originally did in the D3.

  4. Ignaswaran says

    Looks weried with half the side missing or something BUT with execelent upgrads. Still I miss the Meter Type Selector.

  5. Neville M says

    Isn’t the meter type selector on the back of the AE-l selector (white dot to pick)?
    I’m probably wrong.

  6. Jimmy Hoffa says

    This rumor is b.s. Like the one about Canon 1Ds Mark 4 posted on 14 september 2011:
    « 54MP (no low pass filter)
    Decent 6400 ISO performance
    Same AF as 1D Mark IV
    14 stops DR
    16 bit Raw file (mode to be confirmed)
    Digic V
    Limited new HD video function in comparison with the 5D III »

  7. Jim Wilmer says

    What are the two black rectangles covering on the front of the camera? Maybe they are chips off the old block of the obelisk in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Do these rectangles cost extra? It reminds me of a medical textbook where the subject’s eyes are covered with a patch for anonymity.

  8. Neil says

    Looks like an MB-D10 attached. If the camera is ‘smaller & lighter’ will that fit or are we up for new accessories as well?
