In this post we will be comparing two great DSLR camera, the Nikon D800 vs D750. These two cameras are obviously made by the same company, Nikon. this article will have detailed comparison on how the two cameras match up to each other in different categories.

The excitement of announcing the full-frame Nikon D800 is unprecedented.
The performance section of this review comparing to its predecessor D750 is highlighted with some main determining factors.
- One of the accentuates of the new model is the effective number of class-leader pixels of 36.3 million — perhaps proving that pixel racing is not over and that the numbers still make headlines.
- Is such a high number of pixels retrieving the D800? The D750 under the D800 in the Nikon SLR series has only 12 million effective pixels, and until recently Nikon’s mantra was 12 million pixels if the images were clean. Nikon is also renowned for its cameras’ low light performance and noise control. But could 36 million pixels be a step too early?
- As with the D4, the D800’s center can operate at 11 AF points f/8. This means that the AF system will continue to work when teleconverters are used to extend access to telephoto lenses. This is great news for wildlife photographers who want to avoid the costs and burden of long and heavy optical handling of a choice. For example, the 200-400mm f/4, equipped with a 2x teleconverter, effectively becomes 400-800mm f/8, and unlike the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the D800’s autofocus system still works.
- The Nikon D750 doesn’t have a video mode, but the D800 delivers full HD functionality. It can record 1080p video at frame speeds of 30, 25 and 24fps and 60 and 50fps at 720p to shoot slow-motion films. Although the D4 lacks useful 1920×1080 crop mode, both FX and DX clippings are available in video mode.
- Another upgrade on the D750 includes a dual memory card slot on the D800. Unlike the D4, the D800 uses available memory card formats: Compact Flash and SD/SDHC/SDXC. The decision to include two formats can now be frustrating for some professionals who will have to move two different card sets.
Battery Life And Shutter Speed
- The shutter was tested up to 200,000 cycles, while the battery life was reduced from the D750 to 850 shots in CIPA standard. While the D750 has a capacity of about 1,000 shots, the new battery was built to comply with a new Japanese electronic law and therefore a decrease in shutter output. Because the measured battery life (850 shots) includes flash usage, the battery has the potential to last even longer depending on the situation.
- It should be noted here that the D800 has an internal pop-up flash unit such as the D750, which is useful for providing fill light and wirelessly triggering external lights.
- The D800 has two versions: a ‘standard’ model and a special version called the D800E. Second, it has a modified filter on the sensor that does not have edge softening and consequently comes with a slightly premium cost.
- Removing the edge softening filter allows for dissolving potentially a larger amount of detail, and comes at the price of increasing the chance of distorting fake colors or mortars that may require some extra after-shot processing.
- Surprisingly, photo editing software packages such as Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 are relatively easy to remove such noises. Nikon’s own Capture NX2 effect can also be used to reduce or remove and comes with the D800E.
Concluding It To…
- Compared to the Nikon D750, Nikon claims that this full-frame D800 contains 36 new features or improvements to the SLR.
- The D750’s successor, D800 uses the technology of a 24MP full-frame camera and is a better option for any occasion.
