Nikon D3 Sample Pictures

Nikon D3 Life Pixel Infrared Conversion

B&H Photo - Video - Pro Audio


December 2007

Since it's going to take some time to do a complete review of the D3, I thought I'd add some sample pictures taken with the camera and various lenses in the meantime. One thing you realize is that the Nikon 17-35mm f/2.8 is wiiiiide again. On the D2H and the D200 this was the lens that was mounted on my camera 90% of the time. So there is a transition to get used to the FX format, unless you have been shooting film the last couple of years.

The Nikon D3 exceeds my expectations by far. This is simply an amazing piece of equipment. I've only scratched the surface of what this new camera from Nikon is capable of. I can't wait to shoot more with it. Hopefully the weather will pick up a bit so I can do more shooting in the next couple of days.
