Nikon Warns That There Are Fake D800E DSLRs Out in the Wild

Heads up: there are fake Nikon D800E DSLRs floating around. That's according to Nikon Europe, which posted a notice "regarding fraudulent Nikon D800E digital SLR." Apparently some unscrupulous folk are taking the D800, replacing its outer shell with the D800E cover, and selling the fake cameras through online auction sites (presumably eBay).

DxOMark Reveals Which Lenses Perform Best on Nikon’s D800E

It’s fairly well-known that, when it comes to capturing images, more important than almost any camera body is the glass being put in front of it. However, there are times when your camera body plays a vital role in determining the quality of the image rendered by said glass.

To prove this and also help show off what glass performs best with a particular body, DxOMark has published a series of articles that break down what the best lenses are for the Nikon D800E.

Rumor: Nikon’s D800/D800E Replacement is Coming in June

It looks like we have at least one major camera announcement to look forward to in June, courtesy of Nikon.

Sigma Tests Show the Foveon Sensor Can Out-Resolve Conventional 36MP Shooters

Sigma took a unique approach when it worked together with its sensor subsidiary, Foveon Inc., to build the newest version of Foveon sensor found in the DP Quattro camera.

Using technology that captures light simultaneously across three separate layers of sensors -- one each for blue, red, and green -- Sigma claims that, while smaller, the sensor is actually capable of out-resolving a 36-megapixel full frame sensor similar to those found in the Nikon D800E and Sony A7r.

New Nikon Patent Shows On/Off Switch for Anti-Aliasing Filter

When Nikon released its D800E and D7100, people were surprised to learn that these models did without the Optical Low Pass Filter (aka. the Anti-Aliasing Filter). The resulting images from these cameras were sharper, but more easily fell pray to moire patterns in certain situations -- in other words, it was a tradeoff.

But Nikon would like you to have your cake and eat it too, at least according to a recent patent the company filed with the Japanese Patent Office.

Nikon D800E Steals the DxOMark Crown From Its Fraternal Twin, the Nikon D800

It's been almost three months to the day since the well-respected camera equipment rating service DxOMark crowned the Nikon D800 as its new king, giving the camera's 36.3MP sensor an incredible overall score of 95 -- but now its reign is over. The Nikon D800 has been officially beaten out, and appropriately enough it has happened at the hands of its nearly identical twin brother, the Nikon D800E.
