Nikon D3 Review at DP Review

DP Review reviews the Nikon D3 DSLR which features a full frame ‘FX’ 12.1 megapixel CMOS image sensor, high speed continuous shooting at 9 fps at full resolution (up to 11 fps in DX crop mode), a staggering ISO range of 100 – 25,600, 51 point autofocus system, and a 3.0 inch high resolution LCD monitor with Live View.

They give the Nikon D3 a highly recommended rating and write: "anyone even close to considering a D3 will be more than capable of making an informed decision without a technical review such as this (in fact they’ve probably already bought one), but we can confirm that from an image quality and performance point of view the D3 raises the bar by a fair degree. For a sports camera it’s also a surprisingly good studio and landscape camera, and if there’s a better DSLR out there for photojournalists and red carpet paps we’ve yet to meet it. Image quality (especially at higher ISOs) is stunning, the camera a joy to use and the speed and responsiveness breathtaking. If there is an EOS-1Ds Mark III – bating ‘D3X’ coming this year it will have quite a job to do to better the D3; possibly the most compelling, capable and well-rounded professional digital SLR ever made.”

The Nikon D3 DSLR is the long awaited addition to the Nikon DSLR range – Nikon’s first full frame image sensor.

The Nikon D3 features the new full frame ‘FX’ image sensor with an area of 36 x 23.9mm. It has a resolution of 12 megapixels.

Existing Nikon lenses will work on the Nikon D3 in DX Crop mode (at reduced resolution of 5.1 megapixels). Maximum shooting speed is 9 frames per second (at full resolution) – although it can be boosted to 10 fps in DX Crop mode or even 11 fps with some adjustments and limitations to auto focus.

The ISO range is a staggering 100 to 25,600 thanks to a new processor called Expeed. It has an ISO range of up to 6400.

The D3 has a 3.0 inch LCD with Live View (920,000 pixels).
The Nikon D3 will have a retail price of $4999.95.
