Nikon Announces D810A, a Full-Frame DSLR to Help Capture Celestial Bodies
Today, Nikon India launched a camera that astrophotographers would like to get their hands on. The imaging technology beast showcased a high-definition D-SLR D810A, which has been designed to shoot stars.
The D810A, a variant of D810 DSLR, is a 36.3 MP camera with a special optical filter. It is sensitive to emissions of the Hydrogen-alpha wavelength and increases its transmission four times. This allows astrophotography enthusiasts to capture detailed shots of nebulae, constellations and other celestial bodies. The unique long exposure on Manual mode allows capturing pictures in the low-light conditions, offering a shutter speed of up to 900 seconds.
Other features that can enthral photographers are longer exposures in low-light conditions (with minimal noise), and a live view preview function.
Nikon India Vice President Sajjan Kumar briefed about the Nikon D810A –
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.
The Nikon D810A will be available from late May and will cost a hefty $3,799.95. However, there have been cameras like this around, but this is the first full-frame DSLR exclusively designed for photographers. So, astrophotography hobbyists can consider it as an option to go for.
