Nikon D800E
Nikon's D800E takes out the anti-aliasing filter for sharper images.
By Digital Admin, Last updated on: 8/26/2014

Hey! You should know that Nikon has released a newer version of this product: the Nikon D810.

The Nikon D800E is everything the D800 is but with the anti-aliasing filter removed. The anti-aliasing filter slightly blurs captured images in order to avoid moire, the funky image artifact that arises out of photographing finely patterned textures. Thus, the D800E will capture quite a bit more detail than the D800, a boon to studio or landscape photographers who want to eke out every last drop of resolution from those 36 megapixels (and know what not to shoot to avoid moire). For more information on the D800, look here.

Nikon Reviews

Nikon has long been one of the top manufacturers in the industry, and their products are still solid options today. The camera giant is continuously releasing new products with enhancements in image quality and performance.

It's hard to go wrong with a Nikon DSLR. With a different model available for every skill level from beginner to professional, Nikon's DSLR's have always been top notch. Their latest DSLRs have seen improved noise reduction, enhanced video quality and upgraded designs over cameras from just a few years ago.

Nikon made an interesting move in the realm of mirrorless cameras—instead of pushing for bigger sensors, Nikon instead has focused on speed. The Nikon 1 line cameras use a 1” sensor, which is larger than your average point-and-shoot but smaller than the Micro Four Thirds options. While the 1 line doesn't have much resolution, their cameras boast speeds upwards of 15 fps—no other mirrorless line currently comes close to that level of speed.

Nikon's compacts aren't as much of a sure thing as their DSLRs—some of their smaller cameras are quite impressive, while others are beaten out by competitors. We liked their higher end consumer point-and-shoots like the COOLPIX S6500, but be careful with their budget compacts. They offer quite a range of compact cameras, just be sure to read the reviews on the individual camera first.

Nikon offers a full range of cameras from tiny budget models to professional DSLRs. More often than not, if you go with a Nikon, you're getting a solid camera.
