Nikon D800/D800E Digital SLR Camera is more than a DSLR, it’s a broadcast quality video camera as well. Driving both still and video capture is the FX-format CMOS 36.3Mp sensor and the powerful EXPEED 3 image-processing engine. When it comes to HD movie capture, the D800 shoots broadcast quality video in two D-Movie formats at 1080/30p full HD. The D800/D800E captures movies in FX and DX movie formats. The FX-based format renders shallow depth of field with beautiful bokeh, while the DX-format uses an image area similar to 35mm movie film, for a look cinematographers are accustomed to.
