Nikon D810 vs Canon 5D Mark III

Canon 5D Mark III is a 2+ year old camera and waiting for its successor, on the other hand we have recently announced Nikon D810 camera, successor of Nikon D800 and Nikon D800E (both). Take a look at the detailed specification comparison review below and share your thoughts with us….


Nikon D810 will give your more resolution compared to Canon 5D Mark III, but more resolution decreases the size of photodiodes and hence you will get noise at High ISO range with Nikon D810 (theoretically)

No OLPF (Optical Low Pass Filter) in Nikon D810 will give you sharp images (more details) when viewed at 100%, Canon 5D Mark III doesn’t have low pass filter. The difference will be clearly visible when you capture you images at base ISO range.

More ISO range in 5D Mark III – the Canon 5D Mark III features more HIGH ISO range 100-25600 (High Sensitivity Mode: 50-102400) compared to Nikon D810 – standard ISO range is 64-12800 (High Sensitivity Mode: 32-51200), hence you will get better low-light images with the Canon 5D Mark III DSLR.

Advance AF system in Canon 5D Mark III –  Canon 5D Mark III features advance 61 point system features up to 41 cross-type AF points (with f/4 lens support) and 5 dual diagonal AF points (with f/2.8 sensitivity); this AF system is highly accurate and extremely low-light sensitive. The Nikon limited to 51 point AF system and 15 cross-type sensors, so Canon 5D Mark III will do faster AF than Nikon D810.

Better Video mode in Nikon D810 – The Nikon D810 captures Full HD videos @ 60fps frame rate and it can be recorded in MOV, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 file formats, Canon 5D Mark III Full HD video recording is limited to 30 fps and available file formats are same as Nikon D810 (MOV, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264).

Verdict: Canon 5D Mark III features more ISO range and advance AF system compared to Nikon D810, so we recommend you to buy Canon 5D Mark III over Nikon D810 DSLR.

6 comments to Nikon D810 vs Canon 5D Mark III

  • As a budding landscape photographer I couldn’t care less for the video aspects of either camera, neither have I any use for Jpeg, GPS, fast shooting speed, or even auto focus. I do however want higher resolution, great iso performance, a professional quality weather sealed body and a simple easy to use customisable menu like the 5d3.

    The comparison is quite specious. The Nikon Camera was designed primarily for print, landscape and architectural work requiring hign resolution. It has image quality which rivals medium format. Published ISO ranges mostly indicate how high the manufacturer is willing to crank up the sensor amplifier gain. Lower pixel counts will also generally do better. The Canon is a more multi-purpose unit than the Nikon. Focus engines have to be tested. The number of focus points doesn’t necessarily correlate with accurate focus. These camera bodies are in different categories.

    Before recomend something get your stats right as your table says Cannon has Low-pass filter and then you saying “Canon 5D Mark III doesn’t have low pass filter. ”
    It is not the first time I see these scoolboy’s mistakes here
