Product Description

Flagship 24.5-megapixel FX-format D-SLR—meticulously engineered for professionals whose work demands extreme resolution, file size and image fidelity. In the studio or on location, the D3X faithfully captures NEF (RAW) files that, when processed, are approximately 138 MB! Of course, neither a Nikon 24.5-megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor nor 138 MB files are of value unless they deliver truly superior image quality. And in this regard, the D3X exceeds expectations. Like its 12.1-megapixel D3 counterpart, the D3X features Nikon’s exclusive EXPEED image processing technologies teamed with the proprietary Nikon Scene Recognition System to ensure the utmost in image fidelity, low noise, faster, more accurate autofocus and amazing file processing speed that makes continuous shooting at up to five frames per second possible.

Strengths:    Incredible resolution, fantastic in contrasty situations, the detail in the shadows is awesome. Colour accuracy is also fantastic, appears to be the best ive had from nikon, even fresh from the camera with no post processing. slightly flat, but nothing spectacular, easily useable. Focusing system, 2nd to none!!!

Weaknesses:    Slow speed at 14bit, (1.9fps) but I can handle shooting in 12bit for sure. As with all Nikon pro DSLRs a bit heavy, but thast part of what ou pay for such a beast. Cost is an issue, however, as I said, im not complaining really, I didnt pay much more than for my D2X in the end.

Bottom Line:   
Got mine while the sterling was rock bottom and before Nikon raised the prices accordingly, and as I was working out of the country in Afghanistan, it also meant I could get tax free, (another15% off) end result, I paid the equivalent $8295 and got a D3x and a 24-70 f/2.8 :) So thats US dollars i mention at 6500

results from teh camera? well Im based in Kabul, and with another bomb going off today, security situation means i dont get out as often as I would like. Heres a link to some shots i did get ona miserable day out yesterday, if it wasnt snowing, it was raing, if it wasnt raining it was a freezing wind, but... I got out :)
