D800

By Nikon

Filling the gap between Canon's 7D and 5D Mark III, Canon's EOS 6D DSLR camera includes a full-frame sensor and several advantages over the much loved 5D Mark II. Canon notes designing the 6D to play off of the features that made the 5D Mark II so successful with filmmakers on a budget.

Description

Nikon's D800 is the company's newest compact full-frame DSLR featuring a 36-megapixel sensor and 1080p video recording. It features Full HD 1080P video recording, and a dust-sealed magnesium alloy body.

Canon's new "full-frame" sensor DSLR, the EOS 5D Mark III, is a 22.3-megapixel camera with expanded low-light sensitivity thanks to a redesigned image sensor with noise reduction built in. In addition to the DIGIC 5+ processor that affords the camera a 17x performance boost over its predecessor, the 5D Mark III has two memory card slots (SD and CompactFlash), captures 1080p30 and 720p60 video, and has a 6 frame per second continuous shooting mode.
