Nikon made its D3X digital SLR (DSLR) camera, the successor of the D3, official. The D3X is Nikon’s high-end flagship DSLR camera. It features a 24.5 Megapixel CMOS FX format image sensor, ISO sensitivity from 1000 to 1600 (expandable to 50-6400), and Nikon’s newly enhanced EXPEED Image Processing System. It can do full resolution at up to 5fps.
The Nikon D3X comes with the Multi-CAM 3500FX focus module, with 51 AF points, 15 cross type sensors and 36 horizontal sensors that easily track and lock onto moving subjects, delivering the same fast and accurate AF performance that helped make the D3 immediately successful. It has also the Scene Recognition System, which continuously analyzes information from the 1,005-pixel RGB light sensor for refining auto exposure, auto white balance and autofocus calculations.
The D3X has a 3-inch LCD display. It supports UDMA compatible CompactFlash memory cards. Nikon D3X will be released in December 2008 for an estimated price of $7999.95.
