In addition, the Nikon D3x hosts a specially developed FX-format CMOS sensor with 12 channel read out, gapless micro lens array and on-chip noise reduction.
The key features of the Nikon D3X
Nikon D3x - Perfect pixels
The Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor on the Nikon D3x digital SLR features 24.5 effective megapixels covering an area of 35.9 x 24.0 mm. Each pixel characteristic has been optimised to provide a higher S/N ratio and wider dynamic range by securing a greater amount of light received by each pixel. This means that loss of highlights and shadows is reduced and smoother tone reproduction with minimised noise ensured.
Nikon D3x - Superb autofocus
Ensuring extremely accurate single-point dynamic tracking for fast moving subjects in low-light, the Nikon D3x features the acclaimed MultiCAM3500FX 51-point autofocus system.
Nikon D3x - EXPEED image processing
Nikon's comprehensive EXPEED image processing can also be found on the Nikon D3x, providing excellent image quality, speedy processing and a more economic power consumption.
Nikon D3x - Easy Live View
With a super quick start up time of only 12 milliseconds and 40ms shutter lag, the Nikon D3x delivers almost instant response. Likewise, Live View endeavours to make your workflow even easier, particularly for shooting in the studio when using the viewfinder might be impractical.
Nikon D3x - Incredible images
The latest developments in sensor design and image processing technology are incorporated into the Nikon D3x, giving it the capacity to produce files able to meet the demands of commercial and stock requirements. The Nikon D3x digital SLR produces 50MB 14-bit NEF (RAW) files, and using Capture NX2 software, the NEF files can be processed into medium format terrain; 140MB (16-bit TIFF-RGB). This means that the Nikon D3x produces images with fantastic clarity, with shadows and highlights with great tonal gradation.
Nikon D3x - Smooth handling
Featuring the same ergonomic body as the Nikon D3, the Nikon D3x is made of strong and durable magnesium alloy and sits comfortably in the hand with all controls easily accessible. The viewfinder is bright and uncluttered and delivers 100% coverage and comprehensive displays. The 3” LCD is high definition, granting you instant review of your photos in playback.
Nikon D3x - Savvy Scene Recognition System
The Nikon D3x recognises subjects and shooting scenes with the help of its 1,005-pixel RGB sensor that precisely controls exposure by recognising brightness and colours. The results are applied to control Autofocus, Auto Exposure, i-TTL Balanced Fill-flash and Auto White Balance.
