Nikon D3 – preview

Filed under: D3, Personal — SFG @ 12:43

Today I just got shipping confirmation of my new digital camera – and my very first digital SLR camera; the Nikon D3.

Nikon D3

Nikon D3 specs:
– 12.1-megapixel FX format (full frame) CMOS sensor
– 3-inch 920,000-pixel VGA viewfinder with a 170-degree viewing angle
– a 51-point autofocus system with 15 cross-type AF points
– 200-25600 ISO range

I will be posting more on this tomorrow once I have it in my hands.
Needless to say, at the moment I am grinning like a cheshire cat. (8+D



  1. ooooooh. Nice! I got a D40 as my first SLR at the end of last year and it’s just gorgeous. My fave toy :) Thing to watch out for is if you have a good dSLR, any time your friends get married, they tend to want you to do the pics… What’s the kit lens you get with the D3? Or did you just get the body?

  2. Alex, it comes as a body only.
    It was my birthday last month though and in preparation for me getting the camera my wife bought me a new Nikon lens (link below).
