The Veil Slips: Nikon D3X 24MP Outed in Nikon Pro Mag
The veil finally slipped this week as several UK subscribers to this month's Nikon Pro magazine found an article about the long-speculated replacement to Nikon's FX full-frame camera and alerted us about it.
Seb Rogers, cycling sport photographer, gives details on his blog page and includes scans of the article in question.
So the question remains, what will the market response be to the newest arrival? Surprisingly, some of the vital stats remain quite conservative; the difference between the ground-breaking D3 really appears to be the boosted MP count. Of course, with the gorgeous image quality and the higher ISO, most shooters will welcome the larger reproduction potential. Action shooters may be let down by the relatively humble 5fps (FX) and 7fps (DX) shooting rates. And similar offerings from Canon and Sony have been on the market for a while now. Nonetheless, it's looking to be a very pleasant holiday season for NIkon shooters who have been holding out for this evolutionary model.
