Nikon Joy Ride

Nikon is running “Joy Ride,” a long-form commercial highlighting the new Nikon D800 camera. Shot entirely on the new Nikon D800, with Nikkor lenses, the five minute Nikon Joy Ridespot follows a biker as he rides through the streets of Chicago at night to his work in a maternity ward. The Nikon Joy Ride film is designed to showcase the camera’s high resolution 36.3-megapizel FX-format CMOS sensor, 91,000-pixel RGB Matrix Metering System, Advanced Scene Recognition System, NIKKOR lens compatibility and full HD 1080p video, along with full manual control, uncompressed HDMI output, and low-light video capability driven by Nikon’s latest EXPEED 3 image.
