New Nikon D800 May Have 36-Megapixel Sensor

Posted on October 4, 2011

Nikon have yet to unveil its new D800 DSLR, but information about this upcoming camera has already been leaked. According to the rumors, the Nikon D800 will come with a whopping 36-megapixel image sensor. Sounds pretty impressive, that is if you have not heard of the megapixel myth (the more MPs in the camera, the better the image). For non-believers of the myth, any camera with sensors larger than six megapixels are a waste of money.

Anyway, a Japanese camera site has posted what are supposed to be the legit specs of the Nikon D800. Other sites could not believe it at first, until they themselves got the word that the camera will indeed include a 36MP sensor. Good luck storing image files that large into your SD and CF cards.

The Nikon D800 will also include 1080p video recording capabilities at 30 frames per second, four frames-a-second burst mode, a larger LCD, and can support both SD and CF cards. The camera will most likely come with a hefty $4,000 price tag, which is about $111 a megapixel.
