Nikon D3: The first FX camera from Nikon

Nærfoto Bjørn Rørslett
8 March 2010
  • Conclusion: 10. Summing Up While most people might consider the "full-sized" FX sensor the biggest news with the Nikon D3, I for one am not that much preoccupied with the FX format on its own. The size factor isn't that decisively great between DX and FX if you have worked with 35mm and 4x5" cameras anyway.

Nikon D3 review

Techworld
7 November 2008
  • Summary: Okay, so Nikon's D3 flagship DSLR has an eye-watering price tag but, in replacing the aged D2x, Nikon has produced a digital SLR camera with a feature set to make the mouth water too.

  • Excerpt: The superlatives and accolades accorded the Nikon D3 Professional Digital SLR (DSLR) camera are nothing short of spectacular. The D3 is Nikon's flagship (as of this writing) professional DSLR and sports a 12.1 megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor (Nikon's FX sensor), low noise performance at settings...

  • Conclusion: The D3 is Nikon's first installment to full-35mm-frame FX-sensor DSLRs, and they chose to introduce a sports and news DSLR that has excellent low-light performance. Those were precisely the major weaknesses previously in Nikon's DSLR line up.

Nikon D3 Review

best4reviews.com
17 June 2008
  • Summary: The D3 has forced me to have a rethink in terms of scoring, as it is almost certainly the best D-SLR I’ve yet had the pleasure of testing. If you ask, what does it lack in terms of features? The answer is, well, nothing. If you ask, what about build and handling?
  • Pros: Image quality, ergonomics, design and control layout, menu system, comprehensive feature set and customisability.
  • Cons: Fastest frame rate only available in DX format mode, Low(ish) resolution compared to its Canon competition the EOS 1Ds Mk III.

DP Review
16 June 2008
  • Conclusion: When we first saw the D3 before it was officially launched I'll admit there were some raised eyebrows, and the first question was 'is this a replacement for the D2Hs, the D2X, both or neither?'.
  • Pros: Class-leading high ISO performance and incredibly versatile ISO 100-12,800 sensitivity range, Very good resolution and detail without looking over-processed, Better balanced noise reduction than most; more chroma NR, less luminance NR (film-like grain), Incredibly fast (instant power-up, short sh...
  • Cons: No timed mirror lock-up function (could be automatic with self-timer), Focus points somewhat concentrated in the center of the frame, Metering struggles to keep up if you shoot at the very fastest continuous rate (i.e. in manual focus mode at 9fps or 11fps in DX mode)., Slightly washed-out flash ...

Pop Photo

  • Excerpt: How do you beat the 2007 Camera of the Year at its own game? Drop two zeros off its name and double its price -- and you get the Nikon D3 pro DSLR, (street: $5000.00) with a full-frame sensor, super-tough body, and faster burst rate.
