Nikon D3x Gallery
The following images were taken with a final production Nikon D3x fitted with the Nikkor AF-S 14-24mm f2.8 and Nikkor AF-S 50mm f1.4G lenses.
As a full-frame body, the effective field of view has not been reduced. The D3x was set to RAW for these samples, with Auto White Balance and the default Standard Picture Control, Normal High ISO NR and Active D-Lighting switched off. The images were processed using Nikon Capture NX 2.2.0 using the default settings.
The individual exposure mode,
RAW file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and lens focal length are listed for
The crops are taken from the original files, reproduced at 100% and saved in
Adobe Photoshop CS4 as JPEGs with the default Very High quality preset, while
the resized images were made in Photoshop CS4 and saved with the default High
quality preset. The three crops are typically taken from far left, central and
far right portions of each image.
Note: you may wish to open a number of galleries for direct comparison of detail and noise: Nikon D700 Gallery, Canon EOS 5D Mark II Gallery, Sony Alpha DSLR A900 Gallery. All are full-frame bodies.
