Nikon's flagship DSLR boasts a full-frame sensor but aims for a different audience to its Canon rival – can it hit the target?

A true pro camera that slots in nicely between the flagship Canons

Nikon D3 DSLR camera

 

There's no denying that the Nikon D3 is a lot of camera, sporting a host of advanced features befitting a camera pitched at the top level of professional shooting - it even comes equipped with Live View. And before you ask, yes, it can auto-focus using...

Excellent image quality, excellent ergonomics, great design and control layout, menu system, comprehensive feature set and customisability

Fastest frame rate only available in DX format mode, low(ish) resolution compared to its Canon competition the EOS 1Ds Mk III

This is the first DSLR I have ever considered awarding a ten out of ten to in almost 17-years of camera testing and that is high praise indeed.

Nikon D3 review

 

The D3 is not just a replacement for the D2x. It's a brand-new camera

All the features you could ask for ; Excellent performance ; Great build and handles well ; Good value considering its pedigree

Less pixels than its rivals

Previously, Nikon's flagship pro SLR was the D2x, which, good though it was, never quite matched up to Canon's equivalent, the EOS 1Ds. The D3 changes everything. The Canon still has more pixels, but the Nikon is cheaper, faster and more versatile. Its...

Nikon D3 review

 

Okay, so Nikon's D3 flagship DSLR has an eye-watering price tag but, in replacing the aged D2x, Nikon has produced a digital SLR camera with a feature set to make the mouth water too.

Nikon D3

 

The Nikon D3 is the first full frame Nikon, offering amazing image quality due to the fact that the pixels on the 12-million-pixel CMOS-sensor are much larger than usual. These large pixels help to produce very low levels of noise, even at high ISO...

Best D-SLR Professional: Nikon D3

 

This professional D-SLR is a milestone for Nikon. It's the first camera from the company with a full-frame, ‘FX' sensor size of 23.9x36mm. As a result of this, each pixel featured on the 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor has a larger size, and that means the...

Nikon D3

 

The Nikon D3 is a fully-specced professional camera that delivers images via a 12.1 megapixel full-frame sensor. It offers an impressive range of ISO settings (200-6400, with a boost to 25600), and uses an EXPEED processor for lower power consumption....

If you’re serious about photography and about having the best kit, the Nikon D3 demands your attention. It’s sophisticated, yet remains fairly straightforward to operate, so the only major decision you have is on whether to commit to this big an...

Nikon D3 Review

 

Nikon has always been a major force in the digital SLR market, but in the last year or so, it has seen its popularity increase and the gap between it and rival Canon shrink. The 12.1-megapixel D3 is its latest flagship model and the first to boast an...

While 3in screens are becoming the norm on high-end DSLRs, it's worth reiterating how good the D3's is. It's very sharp and bright and even in bright light, it's usable. So once you've taken some shots, you've got the extra satisfaction of reviewing...
