Nikon D800 with video features
 
Official Nikon Announcement:

http://www.nikon.com/news/2012/0207_dslr_01.htm

A new Full Frame player in the field of HDSLRs.
If it has the essentials of the D4, its worth considering price wise.

It has the option to select FX or DX mode like the D4. Yummy.
The OLPF must be aggressive video wise since there is mention of releasing a D800E version without the OLPF.

Uncompressed HD and a 36MP still camera - what more does one need?

For those of you who know video, is 8 bit 4;2;2 a good signal.

Hey Ted, thanks for that info. What do you think of the body without the AA filter for video.

Ted Ramasola February 6th, 2012 10:49 PM

Re: Nikon D800 with video features
 
Without the AA filter, it would have the apparent sharpness improvement since an AA essentially "softens" the image.

There are companies that do Filter removal for existing DSLRs and the improvement I saw is significant for stills.
However, the moire patterns can be seen especially in grills and bricks.

I have even installed a third party OLPF on my 5D just to reduce these moire and aliasing.

I wouldn't consider the D800E(w/o AA filter) if my usage is for video. But even in stills, you would not be greatly served without an OLPF under "conventional" uses like portraiture or weddings.

I'm DSLR illiterate.
Is this camera better for video recording compared to a Nikon D4, Canon 5D, or any other DSLR?
Will it still be susceptible to overheating in video mode?
Will it still have moire problems?
Does it record in-camera in 4:2:2?
Are the audio levels manually controllable?

ETA - I think it records 4:2:2 to an external recorder through the HDMI port. Audio seems to be manually controlled.

On par with the D4 as video goes, Better than a "bare 5D". -bare meaning without magic lantern and OLPF, I have both in mine and has increased the 5D's usability immensely.

So far I havent heard of overheating with the recent nikon offerings.

D800 has a video optimized OLPF so this should be considered solved. The D800E has no OLPF

Yes

plus 1080 HDMI out and simultaneous LCD and HDMI viewing.

Ted, if you are correct, this is quite the cinema DSLR. I like the broadcast quality video (assuming it is truly recorded in-camera). 4:2:2 is...wow. And for around $3,000.
All that's missing are XLR inputs.

Some digs:

3 crop modes:
FX(35.9X24) in Video mode 91% of the width
1.2(30x19.9)
DX(23.4X15.6)

BOth CF SDXC cards

When recording from HDMI, the cards record below 720p resolution

PRIce: $3000!!!! $3200 without the OLPF

It's just one example (an on-line one at that), but I wasn't entirely impressed with the video on the web site (the biker/doctor). For a large sensor it didn't seem particularly sensitive to light (maybe slow lenses used?) Will have to see more to assess its potential obviously. The specs are pretty eye-catching. I wonder if this'll get the train rolling on a 5D Mark III.

UPDATE: Just saw it again on this Vimeo link above and it looked better than the one on the web site (not so dark). Still want to see more though.
