Nikon has officially lifted the curtain off is previously leaked D800 DSLR, and as the rumours suggested, it will arrive wielding a gargantuan 36.3MP sensor capable of producing photos with a whopping 7360x4912 resolution.

The Nikon D800’s high-ISO performance won’t actually match that of the Nikon D4 – its top native ISO sensitivity is 6,400 –as it’s primarily aimed at photographers who work in controlled environments that demand high resolution images. This isn’t the camera to document a dark and murky cave exploration.

The Nikon D800 does however share some new features from the D4, including the same Advanced Scene Recognition System, 1080p/30p HD video recording with uncompressed HDMI output and Active-D lighting.

So will the Nikon D800’s price match its megapixel count? A list price of US$3,000 dollars for the body alone would suggest so. A US$3,300 D800E model will also be available and will have its low-pass filter removed, enabling it to catch finer detail.

The Nikon D800 will hit stores in late March, with its D800E companion doing the same in mid-April. No word on an Aussie price tag or release date as of yet, but as always, we’ll keep you posted. Time to start saving.
