Nikon D800 leaks ahead of official announcement: 36-megapixel sensor is confirmed

Check out our full review of the Nikon D800 for a more in-depth look at Nikon’s newest DSLR.

The Nikon D800 has all but been announced, and now we have the official pictures and nearly all of the full details prior to its launch. Brazilian site ZTOP accidentally published photos and specs before Nikon’s embargo lifted and it looks like everything we thought about the D800 is being confirmed.

The full-frame DSLR will indeed feature a 36.3-megapixel sensor and ISO sensitivity 100-6400. Fully 1080p HD video is available and the camera features a 3.2-inch LCD screen. Full specs haven’t obviously haven’t been released yet, but the D800 is rumored to have the same, much-lauded 51-point AF system of the Nikon D3 and recently introduced D4. We’ll know more tomorrow when Nikon is expected to officially announce the D800.
