Design

1.Weather sealed
Nikon D800E
Nikon D810

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

2.Has a built-in focus motor

Nikon D810

The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.

3.Is dustproof and water resistant
Nikon D800E
Nikon D810

Dustproof/water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1 meter.

4.has an optical viewfinder
Nikon D800E
Nikon D810

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

5. more viewfinder coverage

100%

100%

With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.

A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

Optics

1.focus points

3.has AF tracking
Nikon D800E
Nikon D810

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

4.maximum light sensitivity

25600 ISO

51200 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
