(Editor’s Note: Shutterbug contributor Jack Neubart has been testing the new Nikon D810 pro digital SLR. Here’s his hands-on “first look” at the camera. His full review of the D810 will appear in an upcoming issue of Shutterbug magazine.)

Specifically, on the D300 it was the fully integrated wireless Commander mode via the built-in flash that grabbed my attention.
