A Sundance-worthy camera.

Editor's Pick

Nikon and McCann New York made a splash at Sundance in the short film category with "Broken Night," a film by Guillermo Arriaga of "Babel" and "21 Grams" fame that was shot entirely on Nikon's D800 camera. Billed as a "beautiful horror movie," the film stars a young woman and her daughter who are enjoying a drive across some desolated hills when an accident happens, landing the car upside down and leaving them in the dark.

A horror movie would be the best way to show off the product's low-light capabilities and its capacity to shoot in tight quarters and in difficult weather conditions. A Tumblr has documented the behind-the-scenes process.
