|Nikon proudly releases its 24.5-megapixel FX-format (35.9 x 24.0mm) CMOS sensor D3X digital SLR camera. Just like Nikonís award-winning 12.1-megapixel D3, the D3X takes extreme resolution performance to its professional flagship-level D-SLRs. Either in the studio or on location, the D3X actually captures NEF (RAW) files which when processed exceed 138 MB. It features Nikon's proprietary EXPEED image processing technologies that support extremely low-noise and faster and more precise 51-point autofocus system with 4 Dynamic AF modes, including 3D Focus Tracking. It comes with a bright 3-inch super-density 920,000-dot VGA LCD monitor that gives precise image review together with its keen 27x magnification for accurate and fast confirmation of focus in one of two Live View modes which all add to D3Xís professional capacity.
The Nikon D3X is capable of shooting up to five fps at full resolution or up to seven fps in DX crop mode. Like the D3, it does a start-up time of a mere 0.12 seconds and a shutter release time lag of only 0.04 seconds. It comes with Nikonís exclusive Scene Recognition System that constantly analyzes information from the 1,005-pixel RGB light sensor to a more refine auto exposure, auto white balance and autofocus calculations. It also features Nikon's exclusive 3D Color Matrix Metering II that guarantees accurate exposures in any lighting conditions. Its active D-Lighting feature which is used together with 3D Matrix Metering II helps verify proper exposure, and generates realistic contrast while compensating for lost shadows and highlights. It also features Nikonís Picture Control System that enables users to adjust their images to pre-set parameters like Standard, Neutral, Vivid and Monochrome that apply tweaks to image sharpening, tone compensation, brightness, overall tone and saturation. It is fully compatible with Nikonís Creative Lighting System (CLS) for a manageable mobile lighting solution and Nikonís GP-1 GPS receiver to gather information like latitude, longitude, altitude and date of shooting. Thus, photographers can simply shoot tethered via USB, or utilize the WT-4a wireless transmitter to send images wirelessly when speed and mobility are crucial.
