Included are example images, lighting diagrams, setup instructions, and even post-processing tips.

Nikon’s high-end 36MP D800 and D800E DSLRs have been consolidated with the release of the D810.

Videographers, for example, will be pleased with additions to its video feature set. Other refinements include a redesigned shutter and mirror mechanism to reduce the shock of shutter actuation, which can reduce resolution. There’s also a new S-Raw mode for reduced-resolution raw capture.
