Are you ready to step up?

The 36.3-megapixel full-frame Nikon D810 is more than just Nikon’s intrusion into medium format territory. It could represent your next great stepping-stone.

The Nikon D810 delivers an unprecedented level of detail and sharpness, which is due in large part to Nikon’s decision to remove the optical low pass filter. With the D810 you enjoy sharper and better low light image quality, and are able to produce beautiful noise-free images from native ISO 64 to 12,800.

If you’re into filmmaking the Nikon D810 is equally impressive, delivering stunning resolution. The D810 allows you shoot Full 1080p at 60 fps, and even high-resolution time-lapse movies at near 8K quality.

Useful features and significant specs aside, there are bigger reasons for stepping up to the Nikon D810. If you feel your best work is still out there. If you harbour visions of shooting sharper photos and more cinematic-looking videos – this is the camera that will take you to the top.

First, check out this video of Nikon’s Chris Ogenek, delivering an in-depth look at the D810, explaining in detail why this magnificent new capture device from Nikon is turning a lot of heads.

PHOTO EXPEDITION AT THE EDGE OF THE EARTH

fogo

“Fogo Island Inn sits on an island, off an island, off of one of the four corners of the earth. Every one of the 29 one-of-a-kind guest suites has dramatic floor to ceiling windows that open onto the wildest and most powerful ocean on the planet, located less than 100 feet from your organic natural-fibre bed.”

Be honest, you were sold on it before you finished reading the first sentence. I know I was.

But, alas, it’s not to be. But for 12 lucky souls, “The Edge & Beyond” will be a trip of a lifetime. If you love the outdoors, and love the idea of capturing landscapes in a remote and unspoiled part of the world, and don’t wish to give up luxuries like world-class dining and accommodation, this could be your dream vacation.

Join internationally renowned National Geographic photographer Alex Fradkin on this 5-day photographic expedition to Fogo Island, Newfoundland. Check out the site at http://www.fogo-island-photo.com If you’re lucky, you can make it happen.
