In terms of image quality, how wide a camera’s dynamic range is matters. The more dynamic range a camera has, the better a photographer is able to capture lighting details and shadows in a picture. The Nikon D3X has 13.7 EV dynamic range, which is quite impressive. The D3X’s wide dynamic range allows the camera to pick up plenty of light and shadows in each image it takes.
The Nikon D3X’s viewfinder is 0.70x in size, which means it’s quite large, and the D3X’s viewfinder offers 100% coverage. A larger viewfinder means that photographers are able to get a magnified, clearer view of an image they’re about to take. Additionally, 100% viewfinder coverage means that photographers are able to see the whole image they are about to take, not just a portion of it. A large viewfinder and optimal viewfinder coverage gives photographers the chance to take the best images possible because they have a clearer idea of what images will look like before they take them.
We should also mention that the D3X comes with a pentaprism viewfinder, which is the best kind of viewfinder available. Pentaprism viewfinders provide a clearer, brighter depiction of images that are about to be captured.
The Nikon D3X performs well in low-light settings. The camera can successfully take a clear shot when its ISO speed is set up to 1,992, which is quite remarkable, especially if you’re used to cameras that aren’t capable of capturing good quality pictures at such high ISO speeds. If you’re a photographer who doesn’t want to sacrifice quality in low-light conditions or to have to rely too heavily on flash, you’ll be pleased with the Nikon D3X.
We’ve covered the Nikon D3X’s most redeeming qualities. However, you may be wondering about this camera’s drawback as well. Unfortunately, it does have a few. Keep reading on the next page to find out a little bit about ways in which the Nikon D3X falls short.
