Nikon D800 Turns Me Right Round

The Nikon D800 concept is a new approach to ergonomics reflex camera for recording video. It has a rotating handle so you can hold it like a traditional camcorder. The rubber grip is removable and the texture is very soft – adapting its shape to that of the fingers. The display is wireless, making better use of LiveView at angles difficult to reach.

    Casio digital camera, with almost identical approach.
    This was my first camera and it was really awesome!

    Nice idea, like a grip… without additional battery.

    A very interesting idea. Hope the grip is not big for small hand photographers.

    Nice work but what's the point of a swiveling grip if you already have a swiveling LCD screen??

    Horrible! No room for pentaprims (height), looks like APS-C, is a small to put a Viewfinder and huge sensor. Horrible/ankward layout buttons, no way compatible with nikon tradicional buttons position (and normal human…so bad placed). No so handly hand grip and rotated can be a problem… the gap size between grip and body may crash fingernails with body (more if you have a huge hands). No room for a normal battery and even worse…no way to atach efficient battery grip with this rare rotating hand grip (it would be small to elude rotating part). Forget tilt LCD and rotating hand grip in a heavy body, this is too delicated/no loger life components to be “horse-work” camera. Very small top screen window, it is like ugly A900 top screen. This is a small camera to alloy magnesium body…no room for shell, electronics, sensor, prism… professional camera need some air inside between this components to be impact resistant. Nice draw but it is impossible camera, would be fine for a cheaper D40/60/3100 style if you clean button layout plus add translucent mirror ;).
    D800 must be like d700, with 18 or 20 MPx sensor (or D3s sensor at least) with same or better DR and noise support as D3s . Full HD video 1080P. New AF with points array well spreaded and full finder coverage. Will be nice some Eye-controlled focusing like olds Canon, don´t like use the uncomfortable joystick to track the subjet when large apertures rules. Must use same grip as D700. With this is enought for everyone.

    Excellent concept!!!

    Especially the rotating grip!!
    Reminds me of the Linhof ergonomic grip!

    Hopefully the company is also undertanding the
    practical and creative approach!!

    BRAVO!!
