A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of only a few select photographers in the world to put the new Nikon D3x through it’s paces.  I tested it out during an assignment for award-winning fashion designer Brad Webb of Darb Couture at Red Brick Studios in Brisbane, Australia.

Along with the camera I got to try out the all new Nikkor 50mm f1.4 AF-S lens.  Even though the camera was a pre-production model I was extremely impressed with both the camera and lens.  As you will see with the images I have posted the clarity, sharpness, dynamic range is exceptional.  The images posted are direct from camera without any corrections whatsoever.  I can honestly say I would be happy to send the file to press without any post work.

I captured RAW and JPEG.  As the camera is a pre-production camera I’m only able to post the Jpeg files.  I will post the RAW files once available.

The D3x is identical to the feel of the D3 and I was able to begin shooting straight out of the box.  The specifications of the camera are impressive to say the least.  Full frame 24.5 megapixel sensor delivering a whopping 6048px by 4032px file size.  The new 16bit expeed processor gives added dynamic range over the Nikon D3, which I have already found to be incredible.  The specifications advise it is 5fps, but during the shoot the buffer never got full and there were times I was hammering it.
