Nikon D810 Body
The Nikon D810 builds upon its predecessors (the Nikon D800 and D800E Digital SLR cameras) with a new 36.3 megapixel FX sensor and powerful EXPEED 4 image processor, to bring new levels of speed, enhanced video functionality and the highest image quality in Nikon's history. With that in mind, Nikon has chosen to remove the optical low-pass filter in the sensor to optimise sharpness and broaden its native sensitivity range to ISO 64-12,800 (expandable from 32 to 51,200) to allow even more control over stills and videos. What's more, the Nikon D810 DSLR camera features an improved 51-point AF system with new Group Area AF mode, a burst rate of 5 fps in FX mode (7 fps in DX mode), a 3.2" 1229k-dot LCD monitor and Full HD 1080p movie recording up to 50/60p

I have used this company in the past and once again had no hesitation in ordering from them again.I purchased a Nikon D810 ordering was easy and straightforward and the item arrived early one morning securely packaged within the stated delivery period.
Reviewer: Philip Cooke Slough Berkshire
An absolutely first class service from Cotswold Cameras! The ordering process for my new Nikon D810 body was very simple and straightforward. Delivery was completed in just a few days and everything arrived in first class order. As a product, the D810 will serve me with first class service and I feel confident that Cotswold Cameras will provide me with any help and assistance if ever it should be required. I will be very happy to use Cotswold cameras again for my future needs. 10 out of 10 for service!
Reviewer: Robin Howard UK
Thank you for providing such an extraordinary service at a time of year when, frankly I expected delays in delivery. I received confirmation of my order from Cotswold Cameras by return and shortly after, notification of a Fedex tracking number. Fedex collected the D810 from Hong Kong at 3am on Monday 21st December, it was in Paris on the morning of the 22nd and arrived at Stansted that evening having cleared customs earlier that day. Fedex notified me that it would be delivered on Wednesday at 12 noon and true to their word it arrived almost bang on time at 12.08. Five days in total, exemplary service. The camera was well packed and complete with UK plugs and an English manual, what more could I ask for. Many thanks to you and the team, I now look forward to a Christmas playing with the new beast.

Excellent service. Highly recommended.
Reviewer: Ron Channon Crediton, Mid Devon.
I had been considering the purchase of the Nikon D810 as a replacement for my D3 for some time, I carried out all the necessary on-line research regarding the camera specifications etc, and decided to purchase the camera via the grey import route. My decision to order the camera from Cotswold Cameras was greatly influenced by the many positive comments placed in the review section of your website, even though their were more competitive prices elsewhere. I am delighted to confirm that I was not disappointed, with a saving of £766.00 plus the opportunity to sell my Nikon D3 for almost double the trade in value offered by a major high street camera store, the whole enterprise was a total no-briainer, you will shortly be receiving a further order for a Nikon lens I am contemplating the purchase of. Timeline: I placed my order with you on Thursday afternoon, August 20th, and received an almost immediate text confirmation of my order and receipt of payment, along with a Fedex tracking reference number. I tracked the movement of my order with great interest and am very happy to confirm that my camera arrived at 0930 today, August 24th, exactly as ordered, that speed of delivery is nothing short of miraculous, and……. if that wasn’t enough, I received an e-mailed receipt and my 3 year warranty confirmation later the same day.

Simple, fast service. No problems, no issues, no surprises. Brilliant, will be using them again.
Reviewer: Stuart Leeming UK/Qatar
I loved my old D200 but from the moment I picked-up my D810 I was blown away! Quality in every respect; from the first shutter release to the first on-screen image to the first print, everything was an absolute delight. Add simultaneous RAW and JPG capture, beautiful balance, excellent resolution and speed range, along with outstanding battery life and for the first time I am holding a digital camera that really satisfies my 35mm heritage. This is my first purchase from Cotswold Cameras and I could not be happier with the service; simply outstanding and exactly as described on the website (but do read it all).
Reviewer: Rob van Meeuwen Herfodshhire
My camera arrived in a timely fashion after an easy ordering experience:the camera was all I was hoping for.
Reviewer: Paul Baldesare London
Very happy with the Nikon D810 camera purchased and the service provided by Cottswold cameras. I was initially unsure because of the difference in price from the high street sellers but after a lot of research decided to go ahead; although Cottswold cameras was not the cheapest I had reservations about eBay sellers, the price was still very good and happy with the reviews from other customers. I wouldn't have any hesitation using the company again.
Reviewer: Leigh Hunt Wlitshire
I upgraded from a D200. All of the controls were in similar locations on the D810 making it trivial to convert. Autofocus on D810 is much faster and more accurate. D810 focus acquisition and tracking are far superior. Exposure range is greater and noise better handled making the wider range more usable. The weight of the two cameras is similar. Battery life is not so good as the D200 but then the processing being done (far larger images) makes this understandable. Have only tested the video so no real comments but then, there was no video on the D200!. All in all a fantastic upgrade. The higher pixel count makes images taken with my older lenses appear better. Cotswold Cameras service was excellent throughout. I tracked my purchase on-line from Hong Kong. Camera was delivered ahead of target date - all good. On this experience I would recommend Cotswold Cameras and intend to buy some newer lenses within the next couple of weeks.
Reviewer: Peter Crymble Belfast
Camera dispatched quickly and arrived as expected. All good, price was good too. Only thing was that the camera menu's were in chinese/japanese and it took me a while to figure out how to get them into english - but all fine now.
Reviewer: Dave Mckeown Surrey
I would highly recommend using Cotswold cameras for your purchases, I spent hours searching for the best deals on my Nikon D810 and Tamron 24-70mm lens which I found cheapest here... I was a little sceptical at first as the savings seemed to good to be true but the kit arrived within 5 days and the after service has been exceptional!!! I will definitely be using Cotswold again in the future
Reviewer: maxine Essex
I would recommend Cotswold Cameras to anyone without no hesitation. I received my Nikon D810 camera, promp, well packaged and haved loved the quality it oozes, every day, well worth that extra bit of cash. The 3 year UK warranty makes this company stand out from everyone else.
Reviewer: Tim Green Leeds
The quality of the images I am getting from this camera are amazing. I used it straight out of the box and as a Nikon user already the controls and set up were very familiar. I received the camera within four days of ordering with a hassle free process and excellent tracking. Thank you
Reviewer: Adam Malmesbury
Great Camera - much like my D800e in terms of IQ, but with some notable advantages, quicker AF, better noise control. Cotswold Cameras provided great costumer service, even though I had a problem with the camera - (sticky eyepiece) - problem resolved faster than any other CS department I have encountered.
Reviewer: Andrzej Jablonski Leicester
This was the first time I'd used Cotswold Cameras but found the service very good and the D810 arrived within a few days with full tracking information on its travels to me. Having been using the D800, which is a great camera, I needed an extra body so went for the D810 and found it even better. Small changes such as wider range bracketing are a great help as is the front curtain shutter which when used with live view cuts out any vibrations.
Reviewer: Bev Charlton Grantham
Having read all the reviews I took the plunge and ordered my D810 just over one week later my new camera arrived all in good order with English (Australian) manual. A couple of weeks later I received a shipping invoice from Fedex wich I duly copied to Cotswold as per their instructions and received a credit for the bill, which I then paid to Fedex. The whole system worked like clockwork from ordering to receipt and happened just as Cotswold said it would in their FAQ's. Would definitely recommend and will be back to purchase my next lens in the not too distant future.
Reviewer: Charles Stirling Bristol
Like many I took a lot of thinking before ordering a Nikon D810 as an upgrade to D700 then on where to purchase it. Cotswold Cameras offered the best deal and supplied it in a timely manor. The camera itself really is superb. It's comfortable to carry, works quickly, is quiet and the images are absolutely fantastic. Using a camera like this one wants to use the RAW NEF files to get the most out of it. Nikon has the excellent Capture NX2 for processing NEF files, but hasn't updated it for this camera. The Nikon raw processors that will handle the D810 images are poor, so you will need something else to actually use the photos.
Reviewer: Lynne Warwickshire
I found Cotswold Cameras while googling reviews for the Nikon 810. Having read the reviews (which all sounded brilliant) i decided to place my order with them. I had a couple of questions i had to ask David, and he responded within an hour or so. I ordered my camera on the Thursday and it was delivered by Fedex on the following Tuesday. I was amazed at how quickly I got it. I would definitely recommend Cotswold Cameras and would buy from them again in the future.
Reviewer: Richard Sweet Woking
Cotswold cameras responded instantly to all of my queries and despatched (from overseas) my Nikon D810 camera immediately on receiving my order. They offered their own 3 year guarantee and refunded some small additional (tax and handling) charges that were incurred on import. They have an efficient business model. I think these services could be made clearer by Cotswold in their standard email communications and T&C's, if they did, I would give them a clear 5 stars. Richard Sweet
Reviewer: P Mitchell Torquay
Its very refreshing to discover people that honour everything they say. This is very true with Cotswold Cameras. My Nikon D810 camera and lens arrived within days and included everything as described. I was surprised to receive a small invoice from the shipper however this was quickly dealt with by Cotswold Cameras. Their prices are very competitive and better than most - I can highly recommend them to anyone wanting new photographic equipment - and the Nikon D810 camera is far better than I could have hoped for.
Reviewer: David Waterston Scotland
I ordered the D810 body to replace an ageing D700. As you'd expect, the camera is a substantial upgrade and well worth the money. This was my first time ordering from Cotswold cameras and, of course, I was naturally wary. Despite my order being placed just before Xmas it arrived from Hong Kong by FedEx just four days later, complete with the correct (UK) cables and printed English language manual (not photocopied as I'd expected). I will definitely order from Costwold again and am more than happy to recommend them to anyone who hasn't purchased from them before.
Reviewer: David Cox Salisbury, Wiltshire
A good company to deal with, any problems that may occur Cotswold Cameras are there to help and get it sorted. I will be using them again. Very good.
Reviewer: Nick Cheshire, UK
After reading many reviews concerning 'grey' imported cameras I chose to jump in and buy a Nikon D810 from Cotswold Cameras. Most of the individual customer reviews I read were on their website, however my experience matched their best reviews. Everything was as promised including a very fast and efficient Fedex delivery from Hong Kong (arriving via Japan and France in 4 days total!). The camera arrived in great shape with all the correct plugs etc and the only difference was a photo copied handbook (well presented and no issues). I am extremely pleased with the service and price from Cotswold Cameras. I think also the length they have been in business provides some reassurance. This is the first time that I have used Cotswold Cameras but it will not be the last. If you are looking for a great priced camera, and are happy with their three year warrantee and do not need a VAT receipt then on my experience I would highly recommend them and wish them well with their great straight forward business. Finally, I would suggest that more customer reviews are posted on other independent sites to boost their profile and help others in their research.
Reviewer: marco capello london
I got my Nikon D810 within three days from the order. The camera was in excellent shape and the delivery faultless, Well done!
Reviewer: Andrew Morpeth, Northumberland
Camera tracked from Honkers and delivered within promised time but 10 days later HMRC/ Fedex invoiced for duty, which CC reimbursed immediately after I emailed them a PDF of document through PayPal. Delighted with their service and the product thus far and hope the lack of a Nikon warranty in package doesn't mean that I can't get it repaired by Nikon! Still, probably worth it for the sharpest price I could find by a wide margin.
Reviewer: Bill Mitchell Edinburgh UK
I priced this unit from friends buying locally in in Japan, USA, Canada, and the Middle East, and found this price to be marginally more than the Japan price and much much cheaper than anywhere else, including the USA/Canada "Black Friday" Best Buy price. My order was delivered a few days after being placed, with an email confirmation of order, dispatch, and delivery. A query email later was promptly answered correctly. Faultless service from a company I highly recommend and will continue to patronize. Bill M
Reviewer: Tom Leicester
Superb camera, fantastic price and even better customer service. Certainly will recommending this site in the future.
Reviewer: Peter Goadby-Watt Hertfordshire
After much deliberation, research and looking at need v want I decided to go for the D810 as my primary FX body. Wow! what a choice and what a price and great service from Cotswold. Very impressed with the camera and how much it is improved over the D800.
Reviewer: Martin hipkin Norfolk
Always wary parting with a lot of money but not with these guys. Paypal payment massive savings, and goods 100% even with English manual! Kept informed every step of the way what more could I ask for, would and have recommended without thought, and will definitely use again for my next purchase!
Reviewer: kanji patel Bury, Lancs
The shutter and mirror are quite loud on the Nikon D800 that i already have.When i do bird photography from a hide,the birds would be scared and jumpy every time i pressed the shutter release. I read reviews that the Nikon d810 had a quieter shutter and mirror. I found that Cotswold cameras had the best price, and the delivery was quick. The Nikon D810 does have a shutter and mirror that are a lot quieter than the Nikon D800. It is a better camera all round. I am really pleased it.
Reviewer: Robert Brown Nottingham
The Nikon D810 body is a replacement for my much used and trusted D300. Had put off replacing it as I felt a lot of other upgrades seemed bit too gimmicky for my nature based photography. So with the introduction of the D810 fulfilling my requirements, so did a price research and the price Cotswold Cameras offered was the best of the what I considered the reliable sellers of the D810 by a long way and had previously purchased from them before very happily. I placed the order on line on very late Sunday evening and it was with me on Thursday. The camera its self is a magical bit of Kit and the shutter system is so quiet that most subjects do not realise you are there, and so far seems worth every penny spent, time will tell if its a hardy as its predecessor the D300.
Reviewer: Tom Price London
I needed this camera for a last minute comms trip to the Philippines to cover typhoon Haiyan recovery work and my D800 had been playing up. The team bent over backwards to get me the equipment really quickly, excellent communication all the way through. Fantastic product, would highly recommend.
Reviewer: Michael Crow Sunderland
Hi ordered on the Thursday night and It was in my hands by the way of FedEx the next Tuesday, I was informed of the progress every step off the way. About a week later I received an unexpected customs charge from FedEx phoned Cotswold Cameras and they sorted It straight out. My next camera or lens is definitely coming from them. Great service ppl. thanks
Reviewer: Assum Mirza Norfolk, United Kingdom
Fantastic camera, great price, absolutely thrilled. Ordered this with 3 lenses and all arrived in about half a week. Missing hotshoe cover but this was quickly dealt with by Cotswold Cameras.
Reviewer: Dr Adrian Rogers Exeter
I was wary of buying a " grey import" but am delighted to say that Cotswold Cameras are exactly what they say they are and my camera turned up 4 days later 100% right and with savings of hundreds. I would have no hesitation in buying again and I will tell you why! My camera was on special offer from a dealer last month but then at the end of the month Nikon put the price up by £300! This said it all for me-I felt they were manipulating the market here unfairly. Cotswold offered me twice as much off and more for the same item. Deal done!
Reviewer: David O Chester. UK
Camera arrived whilst on holiday, checked it out, I was a bit dubious as Nikon had put out a notice re some may have spots/speckles if using long time exposures http://photographylife.com/nikon-confirms-the-d810-thermal-issue-and-offers-a-solution anyway checked serial and all was OK. Pleased with the camera, lot different than my D80, still trying to get my head round it. Ordering was painless and would recommend, looking at lenses at the mo hmm.
Reviewer: Peter Evans France
Hi, I just wanted to confirm receipt of the D810 and wide-angle zoom today (Thursday 18th September) at 14:30. Considering these items were coming from Hong Kong to rural France and that I only ordered them on Sunday 14th September at 14:15, and that P&P was inclusive, that is remarkable. The camera and lens are both perfect, have been registered with Nikon Professional Services, and I have no problems whatsoever (on the contrary, I'm delighted!) Thank you once again for a brilliant service and amazing value. As 'Arnie' once said, "I'll be back!" Ciao for now Peter Evans Photographer www.peter-evans-photographer.com

Reviewer: John Sandle Truro
Cotswold Cameras were recommended to me by a friend as he had bought from them and saved a lot of money. I checked their website and prices and they were very competitive. I ordered on Saturday and a brand new Nikon D810 was delivered by Fedex on Thursday morning. Needless to say I am very happy with the camera and Cotswold for their quick service. I will be using them again when I buy the 70-200 lens.
