D4 and D800 price climbs up to 10% after Nikon blunder

Nikon has admitted that its upcoming D4, D800 and D800E digital cameras will cost significantly more than previously promised in the UK and Ireland, blaming a systems error for suggested retail prices out by as much as £490 ($777). In a statement today, Nikon UK confirmed that, rather than £4,799.99, the D4 would in fact be £5,289.99, while there are increases for the cheaper models as well. However, it's not all bad news for those who got in early on the pre-order list.

Nikon D800 launch video uses Canon EOS-5D Mark II footage

Nikon D800 launch video uses Canon EOS-5D Mark II footage

Nikon recently unveiled one of its most sophisticated and high-end cameras to date, but there was a problem in the teaser video that it used to help showcase its power to consumers. Footage in the video wasn't actually from the camera it was advertising. Actually, as a matter of fact, it wasn't even from a Nikon camera. Can you say, "Oops"?

Nikon D4 and D800 launch dates revealed

This week the folks at Nikon France have made themselves the first to tell the world when the Nikon D4, D800, and D800E would be released. Their dates match up with the few tips and rumors we've heard before for US releases, so it appears that it's time to call it in: March 15th will start sales for the Nikon D4, March 22nd will be the first day the Nikon D800 will be available, and the D800E will be up for sale starting on the 12th of April. Each of these cameras have been announced previously without solid release dates in-tact.

Nikon confirms third new DSLR incoming

Nikon D800 takes amateurs to a whole new level of HD

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.
