The company’s new D810 is an evolutionary refinement of the pair. Though lately most innovations in the digital camera industry have happened on mirrorless cameras, Nikons workhorse DSLRs still have a very large audience. But will the changes they’ve made to the D810 be enough to keep the Nikon faithful locked into the brand? And where to from here?
On the plus side, this new camera is definitely a “pro” tool, and has that signature Nikon heft and build quality. Anyone who’s shooting Nikon will certainly lust after this body. And any photographer (with the proper skills) using this camera will undoubtedly produce some amazing images.
In this episode of All About the Gear, Doug and Frederick explore the updated model, specifically looking at what changed, whether the changes justify an upgrade and whether the question of “What/who is this camera for?” has changed since the D800/e releases.
