I really haven’t had a lot of time to spend with the camera yet, despite having it for more than a week already.
I finish for Christmas tomorrow and I’ll have a week and-a-half off, so hopefully I’ll get to spend a little time with it then.
For now I have a couple of images and a few stats specific to my setup.
First the images …
(Image is clickable to get a bigger version)
The original .TIF image file size was 34.5 megs.
This image illustrates just how big the Nikon D3 is compared to my previous camera – a Nikon CoolPix 5700.

I got a SanDisk Extreme IV 8GB Compact Flash card with the camera and just out of idle curiosoty I decided how many images I could get on the card using various image sizes.
I’ve reproduced the numbers below.
JPEG basic ~4,300
JPEG normal ~2,100
JPEG fine ~ 1,100
Being a person that normally shoots TIFF I can really appreciate having dual CF card slots on the D3.
