Nikon D810A- An Incredible DSLR Camera

Nikon's new D810A is a special variant of its D810 DSLR designed specifically for astrophotography.Nikon says it tweaked the infrared cut filter on the camera to better capture the hydrogen alpha spectral wavelength. In layman's terms, it means photos of nebulae and constellations will have clearer, sharper reds. Photographers who aren't interested in shooting the stars should stay away from the D810A, though, as regular photos will look more red than usual.A new "Long Exposure Manual Mode" also allows photographers to leave their shutters open from anywhere between 4-900 seconds, a big plus for taking crisp star big difference between the D810A and rival astrophotography-specific DSLRs like Canon's 60Da is the resolution. 

Nikon's new camera has a 36.3-megapixel full-frame image sensor (same as the D810) that takes pictures with way more pixels than the 60Da, which uses a smaller 18-megapixel APS-C image sensor.

The D810A hits stores this May. Nikon didn't announce pricing, but based on the D810's $3,000 price, we're going to bet it's somewhere around that price range if not a little more.

In addition to the D810A, Nikon also announced the D750 "Filmmaker's Kit," a bundle targeted at, well, filmmakers. The kit includes a D750 DSLR body, three fast AF-S Nikkor f/1.8G lenses (35mm, 50mm and 85mm), two extra batteries, a stereo microphone, an Atomos Ninja-2 External Recorder, and a Tiffen 67mm and 58mm filters and a hard case to carry it all. The Filmmaker's Kit will run $3,999.95 which amounts to $650 in savings if you were to buy all these items separately.
