Rumors of Nikon's next DSLR flew around for months, with details and pictures of the rumored D800 leaking from every corner of the web. In February, ahead of the CP+ show in Japan, Nikon finally announced the camera, a full-frame DSLR with a focus on video recording. The camera will be available in the US in March, for $2,999.95, and for those who don't want an antialiasing filter there's the D800E, for $3,299.95.
Nikon has announced that the D800E will be shipping today in Japan, albeit in limited qualities at first meaning some customers with preorders will have to wait a little longer.
Nikon's forthcoming D4, D800, and D800E cameras have seen a price rise of 10 percent in the UK following a "local internal systems error."
The Nikon D800 is officially out in Japan, but supply is extremely limited.
The Nikon D4 and D800 full-frame DSLRs are available to preorder on Amazon, with a release date set of March 20th.
Nikon's D4 was originally slated to launch in February, but now the company has confirmed to us that it will be launching mid-March, alongside the D800.
Nikon D800 full-frame DSLR official: 36.3 megapixels, video-friendly features for $2,999.95 in March
After months of rumors, Nikon formally announced the D800, a new full-frame DSLR designed for video professionals and shooters.
For full-frame DSLR enthusiasts who can't quite afford the almighty D4, Nikon is introducing the 36-megapixel D800 and D800E.
The first official press shots for Nikon's D800 have leaked.
Nikon has officially discontinued its D700 and D300S DSLRs, possibly paving the way for one or both DSLRs to be replaced in the coming months.
An image of what looks to be the Nikon D800 has popped up on Nikon's German website.
Nikon's D800 still hasn't hit the market, but its specs are slowly being revealed, including a 36-megapixel sensor and ISO capabilities up to 25600.
The long-rumored 36-megapixel DSLR is said to be smaller and lighter than the D700, featuring 1080p and 720p video recording and more.
Nikon may be very close to unveiling a long-awaited update to its pro line of full-frame DSLRs.
