Why you should care about Nikon D3X
If you believe you should ignore the Nikon D3X because it is too big, too expensive or does not have video, read on.
Nikon D3X has an impact on upcoming generations of DSLR cameras. That is the short version of why you should care to know more about the new king on the DSLR throne, even if you are not considering buying it.
We know it from earlier Nikons where the pro models have launched some new firmware strategies/design and system imaging functionality, later to be found in the mid and low end cameras.
I believe the D3X sensor and imaging processing will be found in mid range cameras in the next 18-24 months. These cameras will sell for significantly less than the D3X and will attract many Nikonians who do not want to spend the money on the D3X.
So, go ahead and study the various seriously made reports at Nikonians and on the net, talking about the dynamic range of the D3X, how its noise behaves at various ISO settings and check the firmware's white balance settings. This is all stuff you will find in other, upcoming bodies.
Here at the back office of Nikonians, we are checking the D3X and we're comparing it with other cameras. It is a very impressive camera and delivers excellent results with several older pro AI lenses, the latest AF-S lenses and with much of the good, prime glass in between.
We expect to have a new review up on the D3X soon.
