Deal of the Day – Nikon D800 36.3MP Full Frame Digital SLR Camera Body (refurb) for $2299

Excellent deal for today, Adorama has the ultra high resolution Nikon D800 camera body (refurbished) for only $2299 with free shipping.  To my understanding the refurbished item from Nikon is indistinguishable from brand new items that Nikon has to offer.  I would totally grab one if I’m a Nikon user.

The D800 is overall well received by the photography community, and the ultra high pixel count is great for studio photography and/or landscape work.  While the continues shooting rate is a bit on the low side, it is not well suited for wedding/sports photography.  You may still look into D700 for such application.
