The much anticipated Nikon D800 DSLR will be unveiled on February 7, according to NikonRumors. Details on the D800 along with a picture of the camera have been leaked in previous months, revealing a whopping 36-megapixel full-frame DLSR that manages to be slightly smaller than Nikon's D700 while still having three times the megapixels and a larger LCD.

Beyond the massive sensor resolution and full frame, the Nikon D800 also offers superior video quality, up to 1080p/30/25/24 with the option of shooting at 720p/60/30/25/24. Footage can be stored on both CF and SD cards as both slots are provided. Autofocus is expected to be identical to the D700 and D3, which means a 51-point AF with 3D Focus Tracking.

The Nikon D800 will begin shipping a few weeks after it's announced on February 7. Also gearing up for an unveiling are Nikon's new Coolpix cameras, which will be announced on February 2. The Nikon D4 will and two new DX lenses will likely be introduced later on in February or March.
