|The Nikon D800 is a brand-new camera following in a long line of great cameras in the Nikon family of DSLRs. So is the Nikon D800 really worth the estimated price tag of $4-$6000? This camera is going to increase the megapixel war that goes on year in and year out between the camera manufacturers. Do we really need a 36 megapixel camera? Some people think this is way too much data for a single picture and it will just eat up space on the memory card, while others think that this camera offers so much more than just 36 megapixels. The Nikon D800 could be a game changer in terms of how it pushes the envelope of high end digital single lens reflex cameras. So unfortunately we're going to have to wait a little until an announcement or any sorting news comes out of Nikon, because of the flooding in Thailand. There is no sign of the water receding in Bangkok and the surrounding areas where Nikon has a production plant. So unfortunately for all of us who have been waiting on the D800, and also for Nikon and the people who work for it, this has been the most tragic year possible. Nikon has gone through almost every possible imaginable tragedy. They went through the Japan earthquake in March of 2011, which threw them off their schedule. Now seemingly out of nowhere they are told this crippling blow to their supply chain which he is going to set back their production schedule even further. |
Nikon is famous for keeping their customers anxiously waiting for product information, as they release products details only when a new product is close to be released. It is not different from the launch of their latest high- tech lens- Nikon D800. From February/March there has been constant buzz about the release of this new camera. Rumors have been fast and forthcoming about the specs, the reasons for its launch delay etc. One thing is for certain the anticipation and expectations are at an all-time high, as photographers, both amateurs and professionals alike, are revved up to see what Nikon has to offer with its new D800 series.
