Review: Nikon D3
Bottom line: the D3 a great camera, but make sure you need what it offers. Read the full review.

Review: Nikon D3
For me the arrival of the D3 is the final nail in the coffin for "35mm" silver-halide reflex cameras. Read the full review.

Review: Nikon D3
For one thing it is, without a doubt, built for speed - in every sense of the word. From the almost twitchy responsiveness to the astounding image pipeline that can … write it to the card at up to 9 frames per second, to the fast, accurate focus… Read the full review.

Review: Nikon D3
Since the very first click of the D3, I have been overwhelmed with the image quality of its files. And I'm not talking about the noise. Read the full review.

Review: Nikon D3
A few of us had actually held a D3 in our hands and the same answer occurred to each of us: It's just the most responsive camera we've ever used. Read the full review.

Review: Nikon D3
The more someone knows about serious shooting, the more they love the D3. The D3 just goes. It shoots and you get great images, period. Nothing is slow or gets in your way. It just goes. Read the full review.

Review: Nikon D3
The Nikon D3 has got to be the top choice for anyone wanting high quality, rapid-fire image capture, or extremely low light photography without flash, who is not otherwise wedded to the Canon system. Read the full review.

Digital Camera Review

Review: Nikon D3
Unparalleled ISO performance, a 9 fps full resolution shooting rate, exceptional color and image quality, a superb monitor, robust construction, outstanding build quality and a full frame sensor offering wide angle and depth of field lens performance Read the full review.

Pros: Top notch high ISO and image performance, build quality, etc

Cons: mainly weight, but that is also a positive factor

After using the D3 for 15 months constantly (as opposed to reviewers who have never used it), I can confidently say that it is the best SLR that Nikon ever made. And I have used number of Nikons, both film and digital. Image quality is superb, well beyond what one might expect at 12 MP. It is easily equal to an 18-20 MP digital. It is tough as nails and dependable to fault. I have never been disappointed with results. Ergonomics and design are the best in the industry. And the features and controlls put me right in the driver's seat. This is one superb camera, underrated by too many and in a different league altogether than the excellent D700. That fine camera is based on the D300 body. It has been claimed that it is simply a smaller D3. This is totally untrue. It is more accurately described as a D300 with larger sensor. Anyone buying a D3 will not regret it!



5 Stars

Simply Amazing Camera, especially in low light conditions.
