How do you define professional photography? What epitomizes true performance? Find out with the industry-changing Nikon D3. More than just another new camera, it's an innovative way of approaching photography, with new systems, processes and rule-breaking features that shatter old limitations and give you the freedom to redfine what is possible. Imagine taking iamges at ISO 6400 that are as clean and noise-free as those taken by lesser cameras at ISO 800. Imagine being able to expand to ISO 25600, yet keep all the natural tonal gradation you need in the low-sensitivity range, as well. The D3 tackles real-world shooting scenarios like nothing that's come before - choose from a selection of acpture formats, suchas the new FX format for shooting at 9 fps, or the ultra-versatile DX format at up to 11 fps (5.1 megapixels), with consistent speed at every aperture setting. The new 51-point AF incorporates 15 cross-type sensors that work with every AF NIKKOR lens of f/5.6 and faster. And the system and imaging engine recognize your subject even before you fire. All of this, plus a new high-definition LCD monitor, brighter viewfinder and the world's most intuitive digital SLR platform. Nikon's new 12.1-megapixel flashship FX-format D-SLR is designed for versatility and smooth, natural high-speed operation. Imagine a single camera that gives you all these capabilities and more. Imagine capturing what was once considered impossible. It's time to discover the new D3.

Nikon's original 12.1-megapixel FX-format (23.9 x 36mm) CMOS sensor  Couple Nikon's exclusive digital image processing system with the 12.1-megapixel FX-format and you'll get breathtakingly rich images while also reducing noise to unprecedented levels with even higher ISOs.

Extreme low-noise ISO range with advanced noise reduction  This enables photographers to confidently select from 200-6400 ISO with an expanded range that includes: Lo-1 (100 ISO), Hi-1 (12,800 ISO) and Hi-2 (25,600 ISO).

Selectable 12-Bit or 14-Bit A/D Conversion  The choice of selecting bit depths at 12-bit (4,096 tones) or 14-bit (16,384 tones), both yielding incredible image quality through a full 16-bit processing pipeline, enables photographers to choose smaller files at faster operating speeds, as opposed to larger files with smoother tonal gradations at slower operating speeds.

Fast, accurate 51-point auto focus with 3D focus tracking  Add onto that, three dynamic AF modes to deliver exacting autofocus precision at blazing speeds.

Nikon's exclusive Scene Recognition System (SRS)  Improved 1,005-pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering II provides even more intelligent auto exposure capabilities, along with smarter auto white balance detection and faster, more accurate AF performance.

Nikon's exclusive Active D-Lighting  Image enhancement provided on the fly while shooting produces broader tone reproduction in both shadows and highlights by controlling light intensity and exposure compensation while applying localized tone control technology to achieve the right level of contrast across the entire image for sharp, detailed results.

Nikon's self-diagnostic shutter system  Tested to 300,000 cycles, this system is a clear indication of advanced engineering and durable construction.

Continuous shooting at up to 9 frames per second  At full FX resolution and up to 11fps in the DX crop mode, the D3 offers uncompromised shooting speeds for fast-action and sports photography.

Nikon's exclusive EXPEED Image Processing Technology  The foundation of Nikon’s newest Image Processing Systems, EXPEED incorporates the concepts, innovations and years of Nikon’s digital image processing experience, providing superior image quality with state-of-the-art technologies at blazing processing speeds. 3.0-inch super density 921,000-dot VGA color monitor: With 170-degree, wide-angle viewing and tempered glass protection, you'll get even better critical image review capabilities.

Two Live View shooting modes  Use either hand-held or with a tripod when shooting in a studio, remote situations or from challenging angles. New Picture Control settings: This gives photographers dramatically advanced color control with 4 preset options; standard, neutral, vivid and monochrome, as well as 9 customizable settings.

The World's First Virtual Horizon Graphics Indicator  The D3's super-density color LCD monitor, teamed with Nikon's innovative Electronic Virtual Horizon delivers instant and accurate confirmation of the D3's position relative to "horizon level." You can also level the D3 while looking through the viewfinder or on the top-deck LCD.

Comprehensive state-of-the-art dust and moisture countermeasures and electromagnetic interference  With a rugged, durable and precise magnesium-alloy chassis and body, the D3 goes beyond other D-SLRs to protect against invasive moisture, dust and even electromagnetic interference. A comprehensive series of O-rings and other specialized seals, combined with additional engineering, keeps you shooting when lesser cameras would fail.

Control Specifications
ISO Speed: ISO 200 to 6,400 in steps of 1/3 EV, plus HI-0.3, HI-0.5, HI-0.7, HI-1 (ISO 12,800) and HI-2 (ISO 25,600); sensitivity decreases approx. LO-0.3, LO-0.5, LO-0.7 and LO-1 (ISO 100)
ISO Speed:
The ISO speed setting dictates sensitivity to light. The higher the ISO speed, the more sensitive the film or digital sensor is to light. Higher ISOs have the effect of noise in an image. The actual ISO at which the noise occurs varies from camera to camera. Low ISOs are generally used for brighter lighting conditions and high ISOs are often used for low light or action shots.
