Nikon D3 Reviews, Samples and Launch Buzz

Official Nikon D3 Product Images from Nikon USA

The amount of information to be absorbed about the Nikon D3 is HUGE, so I thought I'd collect, in one place, links to related resources, previews and discussions surrounding Nikon's latest flagship camera.


Nikon D3 - Links to Nikon D3 Reviews, Samples, Tips, Resources and Amazing Photography

Image Samples

ISO 3200 Samples !!! - Full-sized! Leaked! From a D3! No, it's NOT from a Canon 1D / 1Ds series or 5D camera! Yes, Nikon HAS LANDED!

Unofficial FIVB (Federation Internationale de Volleyball) photos - Thanks to Jeff-C, the source for these photos. They're too tiny to be of much use, but hey, they're among the very first (if not * the first *) to be posted online. EXIF says that they were shot at ISO 400.

Official Sites

The Nikon D3 product gallery - Get your photos of the D3 from every possible angle, with related accessories and huge lenses mounted on it. Web-size and high-resolution versions available.

Nikon D3 Brochure - This link is a direct download to the PDF document and taken from the D3 product site of Nikon Imaging. A pity that it's only 2 pages with no image samples.

Hands-On Previews and Impressions

Dave Etchell's Japan Report - Dave is one of the numerous reporters to have been fortunate enough to attend the Nikon launch in Japan. In my opinion, his report is the best out there, detailed and full of insights about the D3 and the D300. In particular, note his comments about the superb noise performance of the D3 vs the Canon EOS 1D Mark III as seen in side-by-side prints.

Miscellaneous Facts and Figures

When did production of the Nikon D3 start? - According to a report from Rob Galbraith. production of the D3 (and also D300) had already started as of August 2007 for targeted first sales in November 2007, though not at full volume yet. Nikon D2 cameras are made at Nikon's factory in Sendai, Japan.
