The new Nikon D810A DSLR camera: Now, you can shoot for the stars

Wanted to do more than your street photography? A new full frame DSLR camera from Nikon allows you to shoot for the stars -- literally!

Nikon had just announced the new D810A, its new gear meant exclusively for astrophotography. The new model is based widely on their existing D810 model but equipped with more features and gizmos to make it the best astrophotography tool.

The Nikon D810A comes with the same 36.3 megapixel full frame Nikon FX format CMOS sensor used in the D810 but will not include an optical low-pass filter. It will have Nikon’s latest and greatest image-processing engine, EXPEED 4.

For its astrophotography, the D810A is built with a specially made optical filter that enabled ‘beautiful reproduction of vivid reds in images of nebulae that emit H-alpha light. Nikon claims that this optical filter is capable of four times greater transmission of H-alpha light than the one used on the regular D810 model.

Other upgrades include a a long-exposure manual (M*) mode with exposure time of up to 900 s and a live preview function for optimum focusing and image composition.

The D810A also displays a live view of up to 23x to assure maximum focus and an electronic front-curtain shutter to minimize mechanical shake, plus the ability to make an unlimited continuous shooting mode.

The Nikon D810A will fetch a price of $3,799.95 (about PHP170,000) when it arrives in stores on May. (Source: Nikon)
