A round up of major new camera announcements is called for I think…
Nikon D800 SLR
Nikon have just announced the 36 megapixel D800 Full Frame digital SLR. Read the full details here.
Featuring a 36 megapixel full frame sensor, it also has full HD movie support and a 51 point autofocus system.
With its broadcast quality video support and enormous resolution, it appears to be aimed squarely at the professional end of the market – and with a price to match of £2399. Due late March.

The D800 also comes in a variant called the D800E, which is the same as the D800 but without the anti-aliasing filter, to maximise image sharpness:
“Incorporating an optical filter with anti-aliasing properties removed in order to facilitate the sharpest images possible, this is an ideal tool for photographers who can control light, distance and their subject to the degree where they can mitigate the increased risk of moiré and false colour.”

Replacing the D3, the Nikon D4 features a 16 megapixel full frame sensor. Offering up to 11 frames per second, this top end professional body costs £4799.
With what now seems a relatively modest 16 megapixels, it should deliver excellent image qualtiy. The ISO range is 100–12800, expandable to 50 to 204,800. A 51 point autofocus system and of course HD video support. Details over at the Nikon site here.
