Nikon D3x reviewed: unmatched image quality, steep price tag

 

While all of the Nikon D3x previews from December largely heaped praise on the camera, Thomas Hogan's recent review is decidedly more evenhanded. Though lauded for what he calls the best image quality of any DSLR on the market, its $8000 price tag ...

Nikon D3x Review

 

Ever since the simultaneous announcement of the Nikon D1H and D1X back in 2001 Nikon's professional D 'single digit' series has been split into two - the X series designed for high resolution applications such as fashion or landscape photography and...

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...

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...

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...

Nikon D3x Review

 

The Nikon D3x is the highest resolution digital SLR camera currently available, offering a massive 24.6 megapixels courtesy of its full-frame FX format CMOS sensor. The D3x is largely based on the 12 megapixel D3 camera, retaining the same 51-point AF...

It's fair to say from our findings that the Nikon D3x is pretty much a re-badged D3 with twice the pixel count but a slower continuous shooting speed; therefore the D3 remains alongside it as a valued component of the range in its own right. It's worth...

No price data available. Check back soon

For its first full-frame digital SLR, Nikon took a balanced approach with a camera that offered excellent overall performance, but didn't significantly raise the bar in resolution. With the D3X, Nikon has made its mark on the high-res full-frame market...

Nikon D3X: Camera Test

 

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. As we pointed...

Nikon D3x

 

The Nikon D3x is the company's latest high-end SLR, designed for studio use. This model costs $7999 without lens, and weighs a massive 43 oz (1.2kg), as it's meant to spend most of its life on a tripod rather than carried around your neck. The D3x is...

The D3x viewfinder offers 100% field of view, a rarity among SLR cameras, which means that what you see through it is exactly what will be recorded in the image. It also has three LCD screens, one monochrome on the top, another monochrome on the back...

Nikon D3x

 

Designed for studio use, and tested well, but generally scored a bit lower than the D700

A 24.5 megapixel full-frame sensor; Good color and long exposure scores

Small ISO range; Subpar dynamic range

If you’re working in a studio, with a consistent, known setup, this amount of customization is invaluable. The ability to tailor the camera to ideally fit your situation means less time is spent tweaking controls on the fly, and more time spent getting...
