Misc. notes Nikon's latest full-frame camera not only records 36 Megapixel stills, it also takes Full HD videos at 24/25/30p. Can output uncompressed video over its HDMI port. Also includes a stereo mic input and headphone output. A D800E model with the low pass filter removed will be available for $300 more, for those seeking the ultimate in resolution (at the expense of color moire).
