Nikon D3X: Camera Test

Pop Photo
1 March 2012
  • Excerpt: You've read it here before: Megapixels aren't everything. Now that the 24.5MP Nikon D3X ($8,000, street, body only) has become the third full-frame DSLR to break the 20MP barrier, how well does that simple truth hold up? Very well indeed.

Nikon D3X: First Look

Pop Photo
1 March 2012
  • Excerpt: For a while, it looked as if Nikon were taking a break from the megapixel race to focus on other aspects of image quality. After all, the pro-caliber D3 is just 12.1MP, and the recent D90 is only 12.3MP. But the hiatus is over.

  • Summary: When Nikon released the 24 megapixel, full-frame D3x , some photographers griped that the new model was the same as the D3 with twice the megapixels and twice the price. In a sense, they’re right but the D3x was not unexpected since Nikon has a history of extending its professional series cameras...
  • Pros: Excellent detail, images, Almost limitless features, Dual CF card slots
  • Cons: Price, Requires computing power, Some clipped highlights

  • Summary: So it’s no surprise to find the Nikon D3x, like the D3 before it, is a very successful and satisfying tool for the professional, but what about the image quality? When we went into this test we of course expected excellent results from the flagship Nikon DSLR, but we were surprised not just by its...

  • Conclusion: Following the tradition of the Nikon single-digit F series (film) and D series (digital) SLRs, the D3X is a wonderfully designed and manufactured camera. I am very accustomed to the large size of the Nikon F4, F5, D2X and D3, therefore I feel quite at home holding the D3X.

5 May 2009
  • Summary: The D3X takes the crown as the king of the high-resolution DSLRs, leapfrogging the Canon EOS-1D Mk III and offering breathtaking image quality when shot under optimal conditions. Putting aside the eye-watering price it's hard to find much to complain about, though you wouldn't choose it for sports...
  • Pros: At low ISOs clean, artifact-free output with class-leading pixel-level detail, Resolution up with the very best, Efficient D-Lighting preserves extra highlight detail (although the effect is fairly subtle), Good High ISO/noise performance, usable results up to very high sensitivities, Plenty of R...
  • Cons: Self-Timer cannot be used in Live-View, Image parameters only offer limited latitude of adjustment, Unreliable Auto White Balance in artificial light, Steep JPEG tone curve can lead to clipped highlights, Slight tendency to overexpose flash images at short subject distance (tested with SB-900), F...

28 March 2009
  • Summary: The D3x would easily have got a top Best4Reviews rating of six stars – had it not been so pricey. But even so, this is a camera that should be a serious contender for anyone thinking of splashing money on a digital back, which would set you back far more.
  • Pros: Build and handling, Superb image quality, Ergonomics, Screen size, AF performance, White Balance control, EXPEED image processing and noise control.
  • Cons: No Anti dust system.
