Asssalamualaikum, hey, hello,hi my beloved followers, friends, family n u awesome people. Today I am trying to be as energetic as possible to be extremely positive *lemau sebab cuaca terlalu panas* Now that both the Nikon D800 and D800e already release by Nikon. But for D800e, I am not sure in Malaysia . Many of my friends are asking whether they should get the Nikon D800 or the D800E.?? Both of D800 and D800e have the same specifications and functions. But D800e is sold at slightly higher compare with the D800. So what's the difference or additional benefit this more expensive model brings?
The difference between D800e and D800 is D800e have a function anti-aliasing filter.Both the D800 and the D800E have low-pass filters, but they behave differently. Typical Nikon low-pass filters actually contain of 3 different layers, as shown on the top illustration below:
I am not sure if the above method is the best way to deal with the issue, but I suspect that Nikon decided to take this route for cost reasons. It would probably be more expensive to produce a single IR absorption filter layer coated on both sides, than continue to use the same layers, but in a different configuration.
So should you pay more to get the E then? If your photography subject is versatile, I would say get the non-E by all means. To most people, the difference made by the anti-aliasing property is negligible, and you really have to magnify to see the difference clearly. For those photography situations where there is no moire pattern to worry about and aliasing is not as much as an important issue as full resolution and sharpness, the E version does offer an advantage. UPGRADE YOUR CAMERA IF YOU THINK IT IS IMPORTANT, NOT FOLLOW THE TREND. Thank You.
