Nikon released its Nikon D3X camera. It’s a professional camera
It’s a 24 megapixel and was released for public consumption back in early December by Nikon. It features lower noise on low ISO settings and a great design.
It has two CF card slots to help prevent overflow and since the raw image setting renders 138MB images, you may go through a few of them.
Now this camera is not the fastest of the lineup. It hums along at 5 FPS which is good for most photographic endeavours but you may want something a little faster for sports.
Being a Nikon guy, I would love to own one of these but I will have a problem coming up with the money for an $8,000 price tag.
The D3 is faster at 9 FPS and shoots at 12.1 megapixel. It also costs several thousand dollars less which gives you ample space in your wallet for some new faster lenses.
