Nikon's D810A, the first FX-format D-SLR exclusively engineered for astrophotography10 February 2015 | Steve Thirsk
Today Nikon announced the D810A, the first FX-format D-SLR exclusively engineered for astrophotography.
The D810A captures magnificent 36.3-megapixel images of nebulae that emit on the hydrogen-alpha wavelength.
Thanks to a redesigned infrared (IR) cut filter, the D810A is four times more sensitive to the H-alpha spectral line than the D810. It allows exposures of up to 900 seconds, the standard ISO range of 200–12800 can be extended up to the equivalent of 51200 ISO, and it has a red-lit virtual horizon to confirm leveling when shooting through the viewfinder.
A powerful tool for photographers, this specialised D-SLR frees you to capture the true colour of deep sky marvels without modifying the camera, and its ultra-high ISO and exceptional resolving power ensure brilliant detail.
The D810A will be available for £2999.99 from the end of May 2015. You can find out more at the Nikon website.
