Its one of the best Nikon DSLRs. Coming from a Canon user...
by Samarth Singh on 2016-09-11
I'm a Canon user with EOC 600D, but I have to admit. This D810 is one of the best DSLRs overall. The little time I had with this, was amazing.
At ISO 65 or so, the quality achieved with this camera is almost medium format grade, its that jaw dropping!! The dynamic range is out of this world, and the colors are pleasing. You can point at the morning sun and get an amazing image. While people may mistake a high megapixel count for reduced quality, the truth is, the kind of sensor used here, is a modern Sony made sensor that's so good, that you won't even feel a drop in the quality, or high ISO performance.
It competes against its own stablemate D800 which has almost the same sensor but with optical low pass filter attached, which eliminates moire (strange lines), but that also reduces detail. For anyone who knows photo editing, moire is not a problem so go ahead with D810.
Then there is also Canon 5D Mark IV, which should have good quality imaging and a modern sensor, with lots of autofocus improvements, but with a not so bright video setup.
D810 easily trumps the 5D in video quality at 1080p, but 5D can do 4K recording, although only with a part of its sensor. But 5D will be much more expensive than the D810 is, plus with 5D, you're not likely to get a price benefit with supplied kit lenses.
D810 is fast, easy to use, amazing product overall.
Recommended for professionals and amateurs alike. Not so recommended for those who shoot low light only, all the time, although this DSLR does a great job at it, no doubt.

Please don't buy this from flipkart, I got this from flipkart today morning and the camera looked brand new and usually i wouldn't have suspected it. But when I switched it on it straight away went to work, no set up, nothing. That was weird, usually we have to set up before getting it to work. So I clicked a pic and checked the shutter count, a new camera will have 1, that means the first pic taken. This one showed 1240. It means somebody has clicked 1240 pics before repacking and selling it to me. I called and raised a complaint, the response was a very casual one. I caught them red handed selling a used product as new and the way they reacted showed this is not the first time. I asked for the seller details as they told that zoomsquare was the seller, but they didn't give me a number or any details, it's against their policy it seems. Either zoomsquare is a bogus company or flipkart is with them on this fraud. Please please get the word out!! Flipkart is selling refurbished electronic goods after repacking and labeling as new, don't buy from them!

Great Camera, Bad delivery, and Expensive at Amazon
by Sudhir Sharma on 2014-08-14
it is a great Camera, all reviews of the product will tell you that. However i had a very bad experience with Amazon india. It is fairly expensive thing to buy online...the delivery was late, i had to call 15 times and the support had no clue to where the shipment was..they just read the track information back to you.
Moreover it is about 550$ more expensive online than waht you can buy in shop for..thats a cool 35,000 Rs less. with all warranties etc. Great Camera..but buy it at a better place.

Bought this from DAFFODIL-ELECTRONICS (Seller was extremely polite, called by himself to give details of how and when he will ship the product). I primarily shoot landscapes and i'am spellbound by the quality of sharpness the D810 produces. The dynamic range of D810 is impeccable and with the native ISO of 64 gives me tack sharp details and more flexibility to shoot long exposures without having to put on an ND filter in certain preferred conditions. Although in higher ISO's, noise is noticeably seen(which didn't bother me as a landscape shooter). I'am enjoying shooting with it, and it’s looking like a major upgrade from my previous Nikons. I would recommend D810 to the people who have honed their skills to an above average photographer and who has a thing for sharpness and detail.
PS: Need to have tons of memory options as a single RAW file is about 78mb, a good quality strap and quality lenses to get most out of D810.

Defective camera since the day unpacked. The view finder was not working. The seller was informed and was requested for replacement or refund. The seller requested me submit my camera to a service centre which was done. They returned me the product after 3 weeks after repair. The view finder was working now, but all the snaps I took showed a curved mark which was visible in PC on zooming in. The camera has been resubmitted to the service centre again. I am wondering if I shall get a flawless camera at all or why do not they replace a product found to be defective on the day of receiving/unpacking. Such a bitter experience no body would want from a high ended camera of Nikon repute.

Supplier and Nikon have Aced it!!
by Amazon Customer on 2015-04-23
Daffodil Electronics from whom I purchased this has been excellent. Their service was quick andpproactive. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a call from the Proprietor - Avisek giving me specific details of when and how they were shipping as well as details of packing to protect the body - considering how expensive the product was. I would certainly use them again. As far as the camera itself is concerned - absolutely TERRIFIC!! Having been a Nikon shooter shooting Film and Digital - this is easily one of their best designed cameras. Now the rest is up to me :-)
5 Stars of the awesome performence
by KD on 2016-03-30
Have been using this for the past month and covered many events. This did extremely well in low light conditions.
Needless to say why it's got full 5 stars... DSLR's don't get much better than this as of now...
