Interested in a Nikon DSLR full frame? Here we've rounded up the only DSLR full frame from Nikon. You might also be interested in checking out full frame DSLRs from other manufacturers such as Canon or Pentax.

Full frame sensor

Full frame DSLRs are called full frame because they have 36x24mm sensors, the same size as film that older SLRs used.


Digital SLRs (also called DSLRs) are the digital equivalent of the old film SLRs. SLR cameras all have interchangeable lenses, and an optical viewfinder that lets you look through the lens and see exactly what the camera will capture when you take a photo.

True, but in the case of this page, a camera with a full framse CMOS vs a cropped CMOS will have a better light gathering capability (bigger pixels), thus making the camera "faster" and allowing more flexibility with lens settings.

On every site where they advertise cameras is the same, people go for a better camera body but keep the same third party lenses. I am guessing that the person that does this is an amateur and don't know that the lens is what creates the image, the camera just holds the sensor and of course all the programs that people keep using, instead of learning about photography. I am guessing that it is nice to have a camera that call your mother when you forget, but I prefer to keep learning about photography and not rely on the camera. so much.

thank you for your feedback! :)
went ahead and purchased the 610 body and am very happy with it! the 800 was too much for my budget and was undecided between the 800 vs the upgraded 800. purchased 2 nikkor lenses- 80mm 2.8 and 200 mm 2.8. great lenses! what lenses are you shooting with?

I'm shooting with a D90, 2 Nikkor and 2 Sigma lenses. A D800 will be my next body, but I'll leverage the D90 to pay for it instead of paying out of pocket. Check Facebook for groups dedicated to Nikon in general as well as the particular body you have or want and don't be shy about asking questions.
