The D800 enables even more freedom of expression in your movies with the ability to shoot broadcast quality video in two D-Movie formats at 1080/30p full HD. The D800 captures movies in FX and DX movie formats. The FX-based format renders shallow depth of field with beautiful bokeh, the DX-format uses an image area similar to 35mm movie film, for a look cinematographers know and love. Connect the D800 to an external recording device where 4:2:2 8-bit video can be captured; bypassing the cameras internal compression and codec. This can be an excellent solution for work where additional post processing latitude may be required. Additional video features include flicker reduction and custom frequency settings, live view operation, the ability to record high-fidelity stereo audio with an external mic, and the option to shoot time-lapse photography and save it as a movie file.

When combined with auto-area AF and subject tracking in 3D-tracking, your images are even more fine-tuned. In addition, the 3D color matrix metering III feature results in pleasing auto exposures, especially when human faces are in the scene

The D800 utilizes Nikon’s i-TTL system, for the supreme in accuracy and balance. When combined with Nikon’s Speedlights, high-quality stills result.
