We've finally updated our Nikon D3 Initial Test to Full Review status. As the the company's first full-frame digital SLR, the 12.1-megapixel Nikon D3 really turned a lot of heads, and brought quite a wave of former Nikon fans back into the fold.
Though the full-frame story was big news and the 51-point AF system made folks take notice, it was the Nikon D3's incredible high ISO performance that drew the largest crowd of serious photography fans. Set the right ISO, and you can get usable handheld shots of scenes you could never capture with any other camera. Live View mode also figures big in the Nikon D3, allowing not just phase-detect autofocus, but contrast-detect as well. And though it's become more common, the Nikon D3's 640x480 LCD screen is a great place to view your images, and zoom in to check focus both before and after capture.
The Nikon D3 is an incredible professional digital SLR camera. Click here to read more about the ground-breaking Nikon D3, one of the finest digital SLRs you can buy.
