Nikon D810 vs Pentax K-1 Specs Comparison

Here is the quick specs comparison of Nikon D810 and Pentax K-1. You can take a look at the key differences between the two full frame DSLR cameras.

Nikon D810 ($2,797 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama): The Nikon D810 features a 36.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor without an Optical Low Pass Filter for particularly sharp and detailed still imaging. With the addition of the EXPEED 4 Image Processor, performance speed is increased compared to the EXPEED 3 and noise is effectively reduced throughout the ISO range. Continuous shooting speed in FX format is 5 fps and in DX format hits a maximum of 7 fps. In addition, the full HD video capabilities of the D810 have been upgraded to include 1080p capture at 24, 30 and 60 fps.

Pentax K-1 ($1,797 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama): Packing in a 36.4MP full-frame CMOS sensor and the advanced PRIME IV image processing engine, the K-mount camera will be able to capture detailed images with low noise at sensitivities up to an impressive 204800 ISO. Additionally, the camera has a built-in 5-axis Shake Reduction system rated for up to 5 stops of compensation. Ensuring speedy capture, the K-1 features a widened SAFOX 12 AF sensor that is optimized for the full-frame image area. In addition to stills, the K-1 is able to record Full HD 1080p video at up to 30 fps in either full-frame or APS-C crop modes.
