Shooting with a digital camera like the Nikon D800 is a treat. All the controls are ideally suited for the experienced photographer: Important features have a button or dial, and there are even a few buttons you can program to work just how you want. Built for the rigors of professional photography, the Nikon D800 is substantial, and its output is weighty as well, putting 36.3 megapixels on your subject for detail most folks have never seen. Naturally there are pluses and minuses to that much resolution: Though you get finer detail than is offered by other cameras, your depth of field can be razor thin when shooting wide open, and the large files can tax all but the latest computer hardware. We don't think the Nikon D800 is for everyone, but those who need it will surely love it. Click here for our full review of the Nikon D800!
