The verdict

Costly, but it de­liv­ers fan­tas­tic shots

Nikon may not have given the D810 Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity or 4K video ca­pa­bil­ity, but it has changed just about ev­ery­thing else that’s im­por­tant to pho­tog­ra­phers. The new sen­sor and pro­cess­ing en­gine al­low a non-ex­pan­sion sen­si­tiv­ity set­ting of ISO64, en­abling you to open up the aper­ture a lit­tle more in bright con­di­tions, or ex­tend the ex­po­sure time that bit fur­ther with­out need­ing an ND fil­ter. The up­dated AF sys­tem is fast and ac­cu­rate, the main screen has a higher dot-count and per­forms bet­ter in bright light and the max­i­mum con­tin­u­ous full-res­o­lu­tion shoot­ing rate has gone up by 25 per­cent.

The D810 is more com­fort­able to hold, more dis­creet to use and ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing su­perb images with more nat­u­ral-look­ing de­tail than the D800. Its high pixel count and tremen­dous de­tail res­o­lu­tion mean that it is well suited for use by land­scape, still life and macro pho­tog­ra­phers, but its AF sys­tem and noise con­trol mean that it is also a ca­pa­ble sport, ac­tion and wildlife cam­era.
