The Nikon D700 digital SLR camera is ideal for professional or serious amateur photographers seeking a high-grade camera for a great value price.

A powerhouse among SLR digital cameras, the ‘brains’ behind the Nikon D700 is its EXPEED image processor, which ensures finely detailed images, great colour and lightning-quick response times.

Superbly detailed images can be enlarged considerably without any reduction in quality thanks to the Nikon D700’s 12.1 megapixel FX (full-frame) sensor.

Live View with autofocus allows image composition using the 3” LCD screen and is backed up by the D700’s 51-point AF (autofocus) system, which offers outstanding accuracy even in low light.

Add to this an impressive ISO range of 200-6400 and the Nikon D 700 can handle low light conditions without worrying about graininess ruining image quality, while Advanced Scene Recognition System helps employ just the right settings for crystal clarity in any situation.

Even the awkward conditions sunny days can cause present no problem for this digital SLR camera. The Active D-Lighting system reproduces details in areas of highlight and shadow to give a truer view of what the human eye can see.

Capturing top-notch, fast-action sequences is also handled skilfully by the Nikon D700, which can shoot continuously at five frames per second, increasing to eight frames per second with an optional MB-D10 battery pack.

The camera’s self-cleaning sensor unit minimises dust to prevent annoying specs appearing in pictures, while the rugged moisture and dust resistant body makes Nikon D700 suitable for digital photography in a range of weather conditions and environments.

The D700 has a handy HDMI output for convenient connection to an HD television.
