Nikon D800/D800E Digital Camera Technical Guide

While its groundbreaking 36 megapixels give the D800/D800E resolution unrivalled by previous digital SLR cameras, a side eff ect of such high resolution is that blur, whether the result of imprecise focus or camera shake, becomes that much more noticeable.
