When the Nikon D800 was announced, the specification that got everyone's attention was - and to a large degree still is - the massive pixel count of its 36.3MP CMOS sensor.

With a 36 megapixels full-frame sensor, the D800 exceeds the nearest model by 50%. Given its huge advantage, it can produce the largest prints except for considerably more expensive Medium Format cameras.
