Re: Nikon D800 with video features

Funny but at the end of the video it says 2011...


I have one question for the forum. As you know D800 can shoot at 20mp and 9mp without cropping. Does that mean that the low light performance improves?

The footage looks good, but as one person remarked, "Where's the shadow detail?"

A) It's on those cam that cost $20K and up.

But seriously, I am wondering about HDMI output and whether what we see in the current examples is a codec crushing the blacks to save space. I hope so and that the HDMI retains good looking shadow detail.

Re: Nikon D800 with video features

Well, talk about an oxymoron - an 'uncompressed' D800 video test on youtube,
Michael Pappas posted this link on the CML list.

NIKON D800 HDMI V.S AVCHD TEST VIDEO Vol.01? - YouTube

It shows something, but I am most interested in highlight and shadow capabilities of the D800 when recording HDMI out.

Re: Nikon D800 with video features

Interesting that higher bitrate footage often shows more of a detail gain than "color" improvement although the color sampling is what gets the attention.. Also interesting how the HDMI footage had a brighter exposure. (assuming they were shot at the same time).

Re: Nikon D800 with video features

I am hoping that someone will soon test the D800's HDMI out in a 'real shoot' situation involving high contrast and lots of shadows. Chip charts have their place, but I really want to see if the D800 can make art.
When I know that the HDMI out is truly clean and enables shadow detail normally 'thrown out' during in-camera compression, my next step will be to round up the money to buy one.

According to DXoMark, D800 boasts the best sensor so far, topping all categories:

Chiayi Fun,

your great video has caused a revolution already all over DSLR forums worldwide. It's been the first video showing the D800 might have a resolution approaching that from the FS100/F3, and way beyond what the newer 5DmkIII is capable of. As it's also relatively free of artifacts and shows a great Dynamic Range, the D800 might end up dethroning Canon in the DSLR video camp.

Would you care to comment how did you shoot that video, what your D800 settings were, was it a simple CS5.5 edit with no other processing, etc?

Re: Nikon D800 with video features

It is a very nice image. I really like the absence of the crushed black look so common in DSLR video.

Interesting shootouts are probably in the making!

As a note of caution, that link seems to solely be looking at the D800 from the point of view of stills performance. It would be totally wrong to draw any conclusions from that either way about video performance.

Thanks Henry

This is the original format file .

You can download the file.


The video only adjust a little brightness at 01:45. The other part of thevideo just a simple CS5.5 edit .


Sorry for my poor English.

Re: Nikon D800 with video features

Nikon D800 customers may face UK delays through April (latest update 27th March):

Nikon D800 customers may face UK delays (update) news


I'm also concerned about the sudden 200 leap in price...and even larger increase with the D4!

Re: Nikon D800 with video features

I wonder, the price hike was due to a system error, as they claim, or due to unprecedented demand?

Re: Nikon D800 with video features

There is no real excuse for this 'blunder' by Nikon. UK buyers are already sending shock-waves...and cancelling orders.

Mistake leads to Nikon price increases [update 2] - British Journal of Photography

To say that it was a 'computer error' is ridiculous.

As Thom Hogan remarked: "...The net overall price increase just made measures out to a bit over 10%. Hard to figure how you miss by that much and not notice it somewhere in your organization the first week, let along the second, third, fourth, fifth, right up to the 11th week.

But wait, they did it twice. The D800 was also changed in price this week by Nikon UK. So six weeks after its price was announced, we suddenly have a realization on Nikon's part that their numbers are wrong?"
