Nikon D800 takes on Canon 5D Mark III for video quality

In the war to create the greatest handheld camera of the day, both Nikon and Canon have come out swinging with video-ready units under the names Nikon D800 and Canon 5D Mark III. What we'd like to know is if the difference between video qualities on these units is one to be concerned about, and/or if it'll be a deciding factor in choosing one or the other to purchase brand new from the camera shop. Gizmodo's Michael Hession took the opportunity to film several scenes using both cameras with the same settings this week, and his results basically seem to bring the discussion to a head.

Nikon D800 takes amateurs to a whole new level of HD

It's not that the new Nikon D800 is for amateur photographers, but it's certainly priced at a place that'll put the fantastic power of a 36.3 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor within reach of the interested but not pockets-bursting citizen. When you consider how much film equipment costs if you're looking to capture HD video for a television show or even a high-quality commercial, $3k doesn't seem like all that much. When your resolution reaches nearly that of a $10,000+ medium format camera and you're offering it to the public at less than half that price, you may well have a winner on your hands.

Nikon D800 and D800E DSLRs address low-pass filter debate

Nikon has confirmed pricing and availability for the new Nikon D800 DSLR, as well as revealing its D800E sibling that dumps the low-pass filter for higher-resolution shots. The D800 has a 36.3-megapixel sensor and Nikon's new EXPEED 3 image-processing engine, and will present an interesting alternative to the D700 being slightly lighter - though in some dimensions larger - but targeting more of a video-shooting, studio or landscape style of image capture. As for the Nikon D800E, that addresses the optical low-pass filter debate with an entirely separate model.
