Nikon India has introduced its D810A D-SLR camera designed with an array of features built specifically for astrophotography hobbyists. The Nikon D810A will be available by late May 2015. It has the ability to capture astronomical subjects that emit the H-alpha wavelengths of light such as nebulae and other distant galaxies in red.
The 36.3 megapixel camera claims to shoot images in ultra-high definition and comes with features such as longer exposures in low-light conditions with minimal noise, and a live view preview function.
Armed with the Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor built without an optical low-pass filter, it comes with EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, which help in improving noise reduction performance at high sensitivities, as well as upgraded depth and clarity in gradation rendering. Made for capturing the night sky, the ISO sensitivity ranges from ISO 200 to 12800 and can be decreased to Lo 1 (ISO 100 equivalent), or increased up to Hi 2 (ISO 51200 equivalent) to suit a variety of environments.
“The Nikon D810A has been designed keeping in mind the obstacles that astrophotographers face; it is a result of an amalgamation of advanced imaging technology and suite of outstanding features. Nikon D810A is a 36.3 megapixels camera crafted with unique ability to capture subjects with H-alpha wavelengths, ensuring rich vibrant capture for images of the cosmos that are true to the eye”, said Mr. Sajjan Kumar, Vice President – Imaging Division, Nikon India Pvt.
