More than most really need
I have always shot large format landscape photography. Needless to say, it's getting hard to find film and someone to develop it. Not to mention the expense has skyrocketed seemingly overnight. That's why I opted for the D800 with it's 36 Megapixels. That and the HDR function. As I'm reading the manual and learning about all the functions, it's obviously everything anyone could want all in one camera. My only comment is that it's a LOT MORE than I and others will probably ever use. I just wish Nikon made a much simpler camera with the 36 megapixels for those who just want to shoot landscapes. A camera that would hopefully be simpler to use for us dinosaurs who have been shooting large format, and cheaper of course. Otherwise, this camera has everything anyone could want.

If you are in the market for an FX Nikon you have likely read reviews/comparisons of the 600/700/800. Although the 800 is pricier it has the new processor that the 700 doesn't and makes use of it in ways that the 600 cant. Buying a Nikon factory refurbish

The best for less
I bought this refurbished D800 to replace my D700 and as a backup to my existing D800. Having 2 D800's is a very nice luxury and allows me to easily copy settings between bodies. Adorama's low price made all the difference. My new refurbished D800 calibr

What a fabulous camera
What a great camera. I had a D90 and wanted to get a full frame camera. I recently went to Hawaii and the photo quality even in low or no light situations was superb. I have recommended the D800 and everyone that has bought it has the same opinion that th

Nikon D800 (Body only)
Crutchfield has collected 4 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 5.0 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "I just purchased this camera and got rid of my Nikon D5100, the D5100 is a great camera but it really lacks some of the great features that the D800 (and D700 for that matter) has. The use of 51 AF points is amazing, the focusing is so much faster on this camera I've yet to use the 3D tracking or the AF continuous, as most of my photography is pretty still, but I am sure it will amaze me. The uncompressed RAW files hover around, 75MBs and the lossless compressed are about 35MB which makes file management a tad more bearable. The image quality and detail does require a bit more attention, slower shutter speeds will blur but that should be expected with any camera. I do think it does require a little more attention than other cameras but the results are well worth it. High ISO shots are very usable unless cropped or pixel peeping. I purchased the AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 and the AF-S 50mm f/1.8, both perform admirably on the camera. From reading other reviews I was a bit worried that the lenses wouldn't perform well with the camera but I believe those people are just over exaggerating. Maybe if I had the "pro" lenses I could see the difference but until then I am happy with my results. The new D600 looks attractive and early reviews say that it is close to the D800, but the AF difference, tougher build, more bracketing, multiple exposures and intervalometer I think make up for the cost difference. This is a camera I will have for a LONG time."

I was a bit apprehensive when I ordered the D800. I've read reviews that ran the gamut from good to bad ---- most were good, and was concerned about remarks from some indicating it was hard to get sharp images without a tripod. Well, I've had no problem u
By FriscoFred on Adorama - Aug 13, 2012
First the bad: It doesn't have wifi built in, nor can it use the cheap wifi adapter from Nikon. It doesn't have GPS built in, get a 3rd party GPS that has a compass (Nikon's doesn't). Only 4 fps without the grip and large battery. 6 fps with the grip in D

Strengths: Heavy Duty
Weakness: LCD screens could be brighter in sunlight
Apart from excellent image quality all round. Photos & Video. I accidentally put this camera to the test by dropping it from waist height . It fell out of my camera bag, landed on its corner on concrete. The result is ...amazing ... a very small scratch and the camera is working perfectly.
By addavideo - Mar 18, 2013
This camera had only 10 shutter actuations, appeared to be brand new, shoots excellent, very happy with this purchase.
By Ken B on Adorama - Jul 23, 2013
So far so great!
I purchased this camera as a (significant) step up from my D90 (which I kept as a backup). My first session with it was a wedding this past weekend. I used it with the Trinity (85 1.4, 24-70, 70-200) and it did a great job during the day and into the evening. The D90 produces good images in low-light, but the D800 produced MUCH better images. I also appreciated the Quiet mode, which I'm using as the default. From the sound of the Quiet mode, it didn't sound like the shutter was as fast as I set it, but the Quiet mode didn't affect the shutter speed. The only thing that isn't so great about it is that - unlike my D90 - I can't assign the Autofocus switch (from Single Point to Auto-area) to an Fn button. For the D800, the action required to switch takes (the combination of a button near the bottom of one side of the camera and turning a dial at the top of the opposite side of the camera body) some getting used to (fortunately I don't use the 70-200 often enough to have to stretch to switch autofocus with one hand). I haven't done the test for the autofocus issue that others have mentioned, so I can't comment on that (yet.) I don't feel comfortable giving it a 5-star rating yet, as I've only had it for a couple of weeks, and I can't give a more-thorough review.
By M. S. on Adorama - Jul 30, 2013
Great camera! Makes shooting fun again.
I was really hesitant to get this camera after having my D700 for so long. I loved that camera, but I needed something that could do better in low light situations. The D800 makes shooting so much easier. I am not in love with the file size, but after I purchase more RAM and another external HD, things should get faster. The size is comparable to my D700, but the quality is so much better. Glad I upgraded.
By AAurelio on Adorama - Jul 30, 2013
Kind of takes the fun out of photography
This is an absolutely brilliant camera. If you are familiar with the higher end Nikons, and their functions, you will feel right at home with this camera. The on-board flash is perfect for fill (I wished Nikon would slap one on their D-single digit camera

Hate to rain on this parade.

No discernable issues.
Shutter count 0, no discernable problems. Left autofocus fine.
By D on Adorama - May 7, 2013
I stepped up from a D300s and find this camera easy to get used to. I've read many reviews complaining about the weight, everything in life comes with a price-if you want high quality images you need to deal with the heft. Buy a good tripod and get some beautiful shots. If you want light weight deal with you camera phone. Personally, I've been a photographer for over 30 years and find a heavy camera easier to hand hold.

Professional DSLR Nikon 800
I'm a professional editorial and lifestyle photographer. I currently use and/or have used various different camera systems including the Canon, Hasselblad, Mamiya and Nikon. I've been a Canon shooter for nearly 5 years working with the 5D MII and the MIII. I've always found the auto focus and focus tracking somewhat finicky and a bit soft on the older line of USM lens. ...not an issue on the USM II line but that comes with a hefty price tag. I've always been impressed with Nikon's optics and have always felt that they were a bit sharper and faster to track focus. That alone wasn't enough for me to change my system entirely over to Nikon. What made me switch over was the range of "ACCEPTABLE" noise at the higher ISO ranges. I feel that the Nikon 800 produces a much cleaner file than the Canon 5D MIII and produces a larger RAW file from which give more latitude to preserve image quality and detail under the most demanding and challenging lighting conditions. Keep in mind that this comparison is base on Canon's and Nikon's comparable lens line up on not any third party lens manufacturers. It is also strictly between the Nikon D800 and the Canon 5DMIII.
By KCS on Adorama - Nov 6, 2013
Love it, but..
Its a great camera, the biggest issue I have with it is that it isnt as easy to use as say, and D3200, lol. That honestly is the ONLY complaint. Once I got some experiance with it things worked itself out. Great images and ..well...love it. If this is a major upgrade for you, make sure to spend some time with it prior to heading out to Yellowstone! I have also noticed that it works fine in FX mode on Sigma brands lenses. If I leave it in FX with a Nikkor DX lense it vignettes, yet with using my 150-500 or 300-800 Sigma there doesnt seem to be any vignetting ..

Refrurbished just like new
Other than a grey, box mine came just like new with a shutter count of 5. I have not had the chance to put it through the rigors of a wedding season but so far I am very happy with its performance.
By Sunglow on Adorama - Sep 24, 2013
I went from d300s to D800. Even better image quality. You can tell the difference is significant especially in low light. I love this camera. Only thing you should not use DX lenses on it. Only use full frame Fx lenses or prime. I have the Tokina 11-16 2.8 Dx. It actually works with Fx at 15-16mm to my surprise. You get vignetting if you zoom out past 15mm but who needs that because it is much wider on a full frame camera.

Everything I hoped for.
Resolution is amazing.
By Sergio on Adorama - Aug 13, 2013
Major back focusing issues.
In studio I was loving the camera and detail. Test your camera thoroughly. Just shot one week in Puerto Rico for a job. Major back focusing issues even at the maximum AF-tuning corrections. Unusable at lower apertures on multiple lenses. (Nikkor 28-80 2.8 and even my Nikkor 50mm 1.8 set at f4. Has to use my 600. I didn't notice in studio shooting at f8. Very glad I didn't realize on a wedding.

I'm an amateur photographer, but I like nice things. I bought a Nikon D800 from Adorama, it had a defect with the viewing screen and I returned it. Adorama was so quick, no hassle, and sent me a perfect D800. I have purchased from Adorama many times, sold

The Nikon D800 as a tool

I have dreams about this camera....
For me this camera fits the bill. Landscape, large prints, portraits, low light, it seems to handle it all. The button customization is nice. You can tailor the camera to work just how you want. I have no complaints!
By AJ on Adorama - Jun 11, 2013

Nice heavy duty, fully featured camara.
The D800 is a very good camera. If you are a reasonably proficient photographer this camera will serve you well. It is very capable. I don't like the trade offs it makes in auto mode. But the other modes are Easley accessible and easy to use. My favorite

Refurbished: An excellent value
I purchased the camera specifically for its low light performance and I'm not disappointed in the least. I waited until a refurbished unit was available and when it arrived I checked and found 164 shutter actuations. Well worth the $600-700 savings.

Best camera out there
I mostly use the D800 for video, it is by far the best SLR for the price. The amazing thing about it that really stands out is its ability to take great video and photos in low light.

For Me Game Changing
Coming from various Nikon DX camera bodies, D70s, D200, D300, D7000, to the D800 I find the biggest issue is expectations. With 36 mpx you expect and demand that your shots are better than you've ever made before. It makes you concentrate on the basics. G

Even better than expected
I use only the best lenses 24-70 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8 Nikkor. Because I have a perfectly fine D7000 this masterpiece is for very special shoots. 36MP gives you plenty of crop margins soI don't need a longer lens.
