Nikon Corporation, a Japanese company is a leading manufacturer of products like cameras, binoculars, microscopes, measurement instruments and steppers used in photolithography. Nikon comes with its first ever DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera, Nikon D3.

The body is built using magnesium alloy. The body dimension of D3 is 160 x 157 x 88 mm (6.3 x 6.2 x 3.4 inches). Nikon D3 contains a 12.1 megapixel full frame image sensor (36 x 24 mm) but it does not have H and X variations unlike its predecessors for action photography (H) and high resolution applications (X). It has a super fast nine fps frame rate. D3 contains 3.0”, 922,000 pixel LCD monitor.

The sensor has an ISO settings ranges from 200-6400 expandable up to 25,600 or down to 100. Nikon D3 has the ability to capture huge amount of data at high definition. The D3 image processor EXPEED features 14 bit analog to digital (A/D) conversion with 16 bit image processing which delivers accurate colors and exceptional captures. The scene recognition system has 1005 pixel RGB metering sensor that distinguishes shape and position of the object for improved auto exposure and autofocus accuracy. Before shooting in high contrast conditions, we can apply a pre-set curve which processes image with improved shadow without affecting the overall contrast.

Nikon D3 has a new 51 point autofocus system which tracks subject and its movement more accurately. The AF module with eight direction multi selector button makes selecting individual AF points simple and fast. D3 includes a perfect viewfinder, dual compact flash memory card storage and USB 2.0 interface. The shutter blades get constructed from a composite KevlarTM and carbon material which renders durability and accuracy even in most demanding conditions. The shutter lag is 41 ms and the black-out is 74 ms. It brings HDMI video output up to 1080i.

The chromatic aberration is low and very effective. It includes good custom functions with wide range of custom settings. The file formats available in Nikon D3 are NEF, JPEG and TIFF. The other accessories included in D3 are wireless transmitter, magnifying eyepiece, AC adapter EH-6 and image authentication software.

Nikon D3 will power up in 12 ms. The battery available in D3 is rechargeable Li-ion battery EN-EL4a. It weighs 1390 grams with battery. Without battery D3 weighs 1240 g (2.7 lb). Nikon D3 is incredibly fast with high resolution capacity. D3 is a most compelling, decent professional digital camera good for wedding, news and sports photography.
