Dynamic Range of the Nikon D800E

My initial fear about a 36mp camera is how will this perform in lowlight? Considering the flagship D3x which was at 24mp would probably max out its usability at ISO 1600. Well, I’m happy with the results on what have Nikon has done with this beast.

Moreover, I’m here sharing my enthusiasm about the amazing dynamic range of the Nikon D800E. The dynamic range is unprecedented at 14 EVs! For me it’s something that I can use to my advantage especially I don’t (like to) do HDR.

Here’s one of the shots that would probably have washed out the background easily, but here the D800E holds well. This was taken under harsh noon light and these kids were inside a tricycle:
