Nikon D3 Specification & Features
Professional Nikon D 'single digit range' of life started the digital SLR back in June 1999 with the launch D1. Breakthrough because it is a digital SLR which broke Kodak's stranglehold on the market of digital SLRs and basically bring the price down to a level which most professionals could afford energy (about U.S. $ 5.500 mark.) Since then we have seen a steady progression in the evolution of this line of cameras. While the core values of a high quality, full size body with integrated grip remains constant, the dividing line into two halves (indicated by the suffixes X and H), one item targets in high resolution photography the other high speed sports type photography (lower resolution but faster continuous shooting). It was nearly three years since Nikon introduced a digital SLR with a whole new new sensor (the D2X) and there have been many predictions that Nikon's next move will be a full-frame chip .

And so it was, with the introduction last August of the new FX format D3'', is a 36 x 23.9 mm 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor as well as a vast array of new features that raise it another notch above completely before a digit Nikon DSLRs. Innovation is important titles include high sensitivity support by default, up to ISO 6400 with 25600 available as an option to enhance, convert 14-bit A / D, a new standard image processor, a new shoot, new auto focus sensor, focus tracking by color, nine frames per second continuous, dual compact flash support, DX lens support (albeit in lower resolution) with automatic cropping and a 3.0 "922,000 pixel LCD monitor (which it must be said is lovely).

Some will certainly question Nikon for 'only' offers twelve megapixels on a full frame digital SLR first of them, we all can guess by looking at past history is a model of models This image is designed for speed (both in sensitivity, auto focus and continuous shooting). first comment on seeing our D3 in late summer last year 'that is' H' suffix? ", Something repeatedly in the months after the notice of commentators and photographers. Although Nikon remains tight-lipped about its future seems like a fair plan that will bring Photokina EOS 1Ds Mark III a competitor (with higher resolution but without high-speed shooting).
