Nikon D3 Digital SLR Camera Body {12.1 M/P} Description


The Nikon D3 was Nikon's first camera with a full-frame sensor. It features a magnesium alloy, weather sealed body with an extra bottom grip and second shutter button for easier portrait taking. Inside there is a 12.1 MP full-frame CMOS sensor. This camera has a great burst rate of 9 fps which makes it a great shooter for action photography. The viewfinder is large and features a 51-point autofocus system with 15 of them being cross type which is another feature that makes this camera great for action. On the back there is a large 3.0'', 920,000 pixel screen which is perfect for looking at recent pictures and going through menus. It is a great camera not just for photojournalism and sports but also for portrait, studio, landscape, and nature photography.

Enjoy photojournalism or sports photography? The Nikon D3 DSLR with the EXPEED Image Processor, 37 millisecond shutter release, up to nine seconds continuous shooting, and .12 seconds start up time is ideal for you. The Nikon D3 has an impressive FX-format CMOS sensor with 12.1 megapixels. The D3 sensor, 23.9 x 36 mm, is comparable to a 35mm film frame; therefore, eliminating any significant crop factor or focal length multiplier.  The D3 delivers outstanding quality, employs a tonal range and depth, and ISO at 200 to 6500 (expandable to 25,600) with minimal noise. 

The Nikon D3 is fast and accurate with the 51-point autofocus system. With the Scene Recognition System, the D3 has an improved 1,005 pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering II and a more intelligent and faster white balance detection. The D3 employs the Active D-Ligthing for instant image enhancement.
